This is what our clients had to say after using it

  • Significantly clearer outputs. Backed by science rather than opinion, at a mere fraction of the cost.

    “Despite its ease of use, the WisdomInc Communications Task Profiler is incredibly efficient in identifying the areas that your marketing budget should focus on. Having worked with many strategy- and marketing consultants over the years, I can comfortably say this tool provides significantly clearer outputs, backed by some form of science rather than opinion, at a mere fraction of the cost.
    Highly recommended, regardless of whether you need to start working on your communications strategy from scratch, or to ensure your existing strategy is headed in the right direction.”

    Steven Oliver, National Marketing Manager
  • Successfully tested across different brands and campaigns by an industry specialist

    “We have used WisdomInc’s Communications Task Profiler to identify opportunities across a number of our clients’ brands and campaigns.

    We have successfully run through the process using the online tool with teams from our clients to complete the tasks and have unpacked the problem areas and leveraged the strengths to grow the clients’ marketing efforts. One of the elements I love about the tool is that we can use it again on the same brand in a few months to see the outcomes and effectiveness (or lack thereof) of the changes we have implemented.”

  • "What did surprise me though was how simple it was to use even though it is quite comprehensive."

    “I was very happy with the outcome of using the Communications Task Profiler for our business. It was practical to use in terms of its insights. We also enjoyed the descriptions of how each task works.

    What did surprise me though was how simple it was to use even though it is quite comprehensive. Will certainly recommend and use again in the future.”

How we came up with this solution

  • We had worked on over 70 global and local B2C and B2B brands over a period of over 20 years.
  • Clients have included Fortune 500 companies, as well as global advertising agencies and media agencies.
  • Areas of expertise included communications strategy, brand strategy, research, and analytics.
  • We have written strategies or have been consulted to understand how a client’s strategy might benefit from a change in direction.
  • This experience has been invaluable in terms of understanding what is likely to work. Equally importantly, it has helped us identify what is likely to fail.
  • After working on numerous strategies, and going through many campaign debriefs, we noticed that most clients focused almost entirely on creative strategy and media strategy. There was an assumption that communications tasks were well understood and agreed upon. But this was not accurate. 
  • Therefore, a focus on execution before understanding exactly what needed to be done to best fit the business’ challenges was problematic.
  • We aimed to close this gap by helping to automate the process of translating business challenges into communications tasks, and then into preferred media channels. This helps to prevent a focus on communications tasks and channels that are unlikely to deliver, while not highlighting other options that may be quite rewarding.

Four reports to highlight your priority communications tasks based on where you are in your campaign

Our experience showed us that certain tasks needed to be carried out before others. To this end, we have split up all tasks across 4 stages. We have taken this experience to show you which tasks should be prioritized, and when they might best be carried out.

We also built in a communications channel road-map to answer the following questions…

SO HOW DO I USE A LIST OF PRIORITY COMMUNICATIONS TASKS?

HOW DO I TRANSFORM COMMUNICATIONS TASKS INTO A ROAD MAP I CAN IMPLEMENT?

The Communications Media Channel Profiler is the second output of The Communications Profiler.

It is intended to translate your priority Communications Tasks into priority Communications channels.

The priority communications tasks are converted into a guide that will highlight the key media channel types that are likely to work best for you.

That way you know what matters before implementing the messaging yourself or asking someone to do it for you. Use what works best for your circumstances.

communications-media-channel-profiler-screen-1

Priority communications from the Communications Task Profiler are run through an algorithm created to highlight more suitable media channel options for your specific requirements.

The preferred media channel choices are then presented to you with a score (higher is better).

This is not intended to be country or budget specific. Rather, it enables you to identify potential media channels that are likely to be a better fit for your task at hand.

communications-media-channel-profiler-screen-3

The focus is primarily on digital media options as they are more accessible to B2B and B2C marketers in terms of available budgets.

Our experience is many marketers do not have the resources to execute all media channel opportunities simultaneously. This approach highlights more promising opportunities.

Reports can be exported in a variety of formats so different people in your team can be allocated specific tasks while seeing the whole picture.

A Communications Media Channel Profile is generated for every Communications Task Profile that you create. This means that you can see how preferred media channels could have different priorities across your products, services or market segments.
