Measurement performance and aligned sales strategies
Sales is a highly complex, fast-moving environment. We operate in a world of more: more people, more rules, more processes, more competition, and more systems. The result is complexity for your customers and for sellers who need to create value for their HCPs and the company. Your leadership team is focused on optimizing the elements that drive goal achievement.
That includes maximizing sales revenue, managing the pipeline, strengthening the sales culture, and implementing new ways to boost productivity and unlock performance. Elements including sales enablement, advanced analytics, and customer experience have all taken center stage – saddling sales leaders with more priorities than ever before. If the sales organization is out of step with the higher-level strategy, revenue opportunities are compromised. With so much at stake and in focus, alignment is crucial for success.

COMMERCIAL PERFORMANCE ARCHITECTURESM (CPA) +-
New ways to unlock sales performance
Sales teams understand that highly successful strategies are executed in synch with performance goals. However, many sales organizations lack a unified performance measurement framework that integrates marketing strategies and tactics. The result is a one-sided view of the commercial performance picture.
To develop a results-driven strategy that supports sales efforts and drives commercial value, strong alignment between your sales and marketing teams is critical. A survey of sales professionals found that sales and marketing alignment drove 36% better customer retention.*
The CPA is a robust engine which transforms and prioritizes sales and marketing information into decision insights and actions that ensure alignment between teams and their activities. Measurement Mojo experts ask the key business and operational questions to formulate a plan aligning goals that improve results.
Improve productivity and align your performance goals
Our work with clients establishes a sales and marketing performance framework to advance your omnichannel campaigns, creating a comprehensive picture of:
- Team proficiencies and growth opportunities
- Alignment of operational and financial goals
- Prioritized data-informed decisions and focused actions
- Hidden costs and financial impact models
- A continuous improvement process to deepen customer engagement
Insights in Action: Sales/Marketing integration drives ongoing strategy
Measurement Mojo designed an integrated dashboard within a diabetes client’s Tableau environment to provide line of sight into sales (calls, speaker events, and sample distribution) and marketing (emails, patient experience programs, and targeted campaigns) activities. It also offered a rep level sales scaled by region or district-level view.
RESULTS: The custom dashboard presented performance data by territory (50+) and region (10+). Measurement Mojo empowered the sales team to draw important actionable conclusions including optimized allocation of local marketing dollars. The sales and marketing teams were better aligned with shared KPIs and had improved visibility into local market performance.
PERFORMANCE INSIGHTS and DYNAMIC OPTIMIZATIONSM +-
Reliable performance insights you can use
Do you fully understand how your data relates to your sales and marketing strategies? Even with proven analytics models, insights are shaped through in-depth knowledge of sales and marketing strategies which leverage implementation. We can apply our experience across the industry to describe, predict and improve your sales success models and boost customer satisfaction.
Focus on the leading indicators of sales potential
Dynamic Optimization is a decision engine that interprets measurements and prioritizes actions including investment levels and financial impact. Both the sales and marketing teams need to focus on key actions related to conversion and the associated costs to achieve them. Optimization clarifies which key actions are the leading indicators of sales impact. Our solution provides insight into key behaviors, messaging, ideal engagement patterns and more.
Customized insights and key action summaries
Each client engagement is unique. Prototype reports are developed with client participation to ensure that sales insights and opportunities are actionable by your sales team. We also focus on role-based insights to provide each group and level of the organization the specific details they need to make critical decisions. Clear recommendations are mapped to past engagement and predictive outcomes to clarify sales potential. We can incorporate your existing CRM to distribute dashboards and insights. Implementations often include tools such as Tableau and interactive insight dashboards customizable by geography, team, sales rank—or nearly any other vital category you can imagine!
Insights in Action: Analyzing market share change cause and effects
Our client with a gastroenterology brand needed to better understand a recent 25% drop in their market share. Some field team members blamed the company’s change in their co-pay card program.
RESULTS: On deeper review, we found a change in the co-pay card affected co-pay redemption but had minimal effect on market share. Instead, the drop directly coincided with the company’s sales force realignment. This redirected the corrective actions to recover lost share of market.
SALES & MARKETING ALIGNMENT THROUGH THE IDEA MEASUREMENT BLUEPRINTSM +-
Improved alignment drives goal achievement
You share high-level goals with your marketing colleagues: driving sales and improving revenues. Despite the commonality, misalignment on the details of reaching these goals is common. Studies show that just 8% of companies have strong alignment between their sales and marketing teams.* Any misalignment undermines your brand and marketing efforts. Companies with aligned sales and marketing teams are shown to grow their brands 36% faster†, enable sales teams to achieve 38% higher win rates, and have 36% higher customer retention levels.‡
The recent pandemic accelerated shifts in customer engagement strategy, requiring more integration and fluidity between personal and non-personal engagement tactics. Mapping KPIs is a critical first step to evaluate and manage performance. The IDEA Measurement BlueprintSM includes five cascading levels of measurement designed to measure and prioritize key actions for the sales and marketing teams. Measurement levels include:
Descriptive – activity metrics such as sales calls completed or cost per click
Diagnostic – HCP and account KPIs assessing variations in engagement and related sales results
Predictive – evaluating trends and behaviors that are linked to buying
Prescriptive – recommendations to shift or optimize trends
Business Outcomes – revenue and expense change including ROI and sales lift

A personalized strategy based on your specific needs
The Marketing Mojo approach for tailoring a cohesive and integrated performance plan to your needs is time tested and market proven. Mojo experts collaborate with your team to identify the shared objectives and foundational metrics that define your success. With a focus on driving positive customer outcomes, we help create solutions for the challenges marketing and sales face when working together.
A broader view of customer engagement
Are you aware of ALL of the promotional strategies your marketing team is implementing? When you view HCP relationships across sales and non-personal promotion efforts, hidden opportunities reveal themselves (for example, HCPs who have steadily engaged in promotional messaging, are not currently writing, but are now receptive to a sales rep contact).
We help evaluate processes and data, close communications gaps and identify ways to effectively provide targets with reinforced messaging that encourages engagement and sales. Sharing insights, key messaging, and data across sales and marketing functions creates a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
CUSTOMER JOURNEY INSIGHTS +-
Deeper customer journey insights
Giving your HCPs an engaging experience with your brand is more than sharing attractive sales aids; it requires an intuitive understanding of their needs and preferences. Leveraging Measurement Mojo’s customer journey insights, you possess a data-driven approach to discovering, analyzing, influencing and optimizing every touchpoint of your customers’ journey, regardless of how they engage.
IntelliScore® algorithm — a powerful predictive metric
