8 Performance Goals For Marketing Managers
How to Establish SMART Marketing Goals
- Specific: Goals should be clearly outlined and specific. There should be no room for misinterpretation. An example of a marketing objective would be “growing website visitors by 25%” instead of “increasing website visibility.”
- Measurable: Marketers should be able to track their progress toward goals. In other words, you need to quantify goals. “We have grown our Instagram followers by 15%” is a better metric than “Our Instagram presence is growing.”
- Achievable: Marketing manager goals can be challenging but achievable. Easy goals won’t inspire teams and unrealistic goals will demotivate employees. What you need is a fine balance between the two.
- Relevant: A relevant marketing goal will get support from the business leadership. It will also be in alignment with the larger business objectives. Moreover, relevant goals can make a tangible difference to an organization’s bottom line.
- Time-Bound: With a timeline, you can organize your goal into subtasks and monitor their progress. You can easily know if any task is facing delays and take appropriate measures. This helps avoid project delays.
