Everything changes and evolves, with data generated and databases growing larger with every passing day, while the maturity and sophistication of our technologies is also continuously evolving and improving. So too has marketing automation, fine tuned for every business, right down to delivering individually customised emails, along with the implementation, training and support, so to learn more, we spoke with Ben Dyer, the Technical Director, Chief Systems Architect and a Co-Founder of Taguchi Marketing.
Taguchi Founded in 2009, the company is 100% Australian owned and developed, and has grown to become an award-winning company with world-beating, data driven marketing solutions for industry leading companies including RACV, Webjet, ME Bank, Accor Hotels, Amcal, Miele, Big4, Discount Drug Stores and more.
As WPP (a Taguchi shareholder) makes clear, “What sets Taguchi apart is its ability to accurately predict your short and long-term ROI. Understanding the lifetime value of your database enables you to plan and implement your marketing strategies with more confidence than ever before.
“The Taguchi Marketing Principle is fundamental to our success, and yours. By dramatically reducing and improving production processes and mechanics, we enable you to have more time for refining your strategy and analysing results. This is a paradigm shift for digital marketing platforms, a complete reversal of where the majority of time and energy is spent. The end result is smarter upfront business decisions and digital marketing campaigns that are easier to produce and more potent in execution.”
Taguchi itself explains its technology is “the most adaptive digital marketing platform” that is “used across a variety of industries to facilitate programs and provide insights associated with digital marketing, loyalty engagement, customer re-targeting campaigns, marketing automation and local area marketing.”
As the company implements and supports all of its customers’ marketing automation programs in-house so they can each work directly with the team that developed Taguchi’s platform, the company promises “you get exactly what you need and nothing you don’t,” while ensuring that “sending the right message to the right people, and at the right time and place, has never been easier.”
So, to learn about how Taguchi is “more than just a software provider” that understands that “its clients need to be able to partner with vendors that can tailor software to meet the specific needs of their business”, as with Domino’s Pizza over four years ago with a system that, as QSRMedia explained in its article: “It provides capabilities for individual restaurant owners and managers to tailor Domino’s Head Office marketing emails and SMS with special offers targeted to their local area customers,” we spoke with Taguchi Marketing’s Ben Dyer.
Ben Dyer is the Technical Director, Chief Systems Architect and a Co-Founder of Taguchi Marketing, and he joined iTWireTV to explain what marketing automation means as we enter in 2022, how it differs from traditional marketing and how it works, the platform and customer success stories, what was learned from the pandemic and how it changed marketing, where the idea for Taguchi came from and much more.
