Measurement programs must be SIMPLE and must align with your company's culture, measurement priorities, budget, and resources. ASG works closely with you to quickly examine a wide range of AR-specific measurement alternatives to establish a simple, customized, and appropriate measurement program. Through the process, ASG provides a set of models/frameworks that consider strategies for:
  • Monitoring analyst research publications to determine the level of coverage you (and your competitors) are receiving and the likely impact your coverage is having within each of your target markets
  • Monitoring analyst research publications to assess the degree to which your (and your competitors') key messages are being echoed and amplified by the analyst community
  • Assessing analyst awareness of your strategies, products/solutions, and capabilities
  • Assessing analyst confidence in your company's ability to execute against commitments and deliver quantifiable value for your customers
  • Determining the specific level of knowledge and market impact for identified high-impact analysts
  • Assessing the level of analyst satisfaction with your program's outreach and support activities
  • Determining how well your AR program is providing strategic, tactical, and pragmatic value to product managers, business unit executives, and the overall marketing team
  • Monitoring your sales team's level of awareness regarding analyst impact within their sales cycles; and their overall level of satisfaction with the level of support and timeliness of information provided by your program related to analyst activities
  • And more...

After considering this spectrum of measurement opportunities, ASG works with you to hone in on the specific activities that align with your needs, resources, and budget.
