Revenue Architecture in Action: Closed-Loop Marketing
We define closed-loop marketing as the continuous process of delivering tailored experiences, engaging customers, driving conversions, and tracking results. By ‘closing the loop’, sales and marketing teams engage the funnel end-to-end, align around the customer life-cycle and track activities, micro and macro conversions throughout the cycle. Campaigns are measured for total revenue impact with attributions to track lead sources measuring the impact of different campaigns and channels.

- Use a mix of paid, owned and earned media strategies tailored for target audiences and personas and deliver experiences at different stages of the buyer lifecycle
- Integrate marketing automation and sales technology, channels, content and media to enable the experience
