Marketing Operations

Marketing operations is an important sphere of an organization. Fortunately, the market is inundated with the right tools to drive the best of marketing efforts. However, it is important to optimize the available tools efficiently. At Stacktics, our experts are equipped with the knowledge to help power your organization with ‘value-driven’ marketing channels.

Media In House Transition

Operating media operations in-house can offer a lot of benefits when done correctly. A smooth transition can be facilitated by understanding the key considerations before, during, and after migration. Following a planned role transfer media process can help mitigate the errors that arise from unplanned set-ups that lead to knowledge loss, drop in performance and loss of historical data.

The key benefits of a smooth transition include cost savings, agility, and data consolidation.

Once the transition is complete you can expect the following benefits:


  • Gain Transparency by Owning Your Data – Not waiting for an agency report
  • Maintain Privacy and Don’t Share Data – Not sharing key performance data externally
  • Get Insights into Marketing Performance – Have motivated staff surfacing key insights
  • Drive Efficiencies with Speed to Market – Reduce wait time on new campaign launches
  • Decrease Costs by Reinvesting in Media – Not paying an agency team mark-up
  • Increase Effectiveness with Better Data – By combining all data you get a 360 view of the customer journey leading to proper attribution by channel and device

We can assist you by guiding you through a process designed to mitigate issues based on a common-sense approach that is methodical, transition and attempts to avoid chaos by not rushing

Step 1: Current State Assessment

Conduct current state assessment of business operations & technical assessment of media platforms, analytics, and data collection.

Step 2: Design for Future State

  • Document future state redesign, including organizational, technical, and operational elements
  • Define organization design, job descriptions and hiring plan to recruit talent
  • Determine training needs to operate in the desired future state
  • Create a target future state for platforms and supporting processes, including analytics to maximize synergies

Step 3: Transition & Implementation Plan

  • Define phasing and transitioning plans
  • Hire, train, and onboard new talent
  • Communicate and manage the change
  • Establish agency and marketer roles, responsibilities, knowledge transfer and workflow throughout the process
  • Capture 2-year historical performance data where possible as this can be valuable moving forward

Step 4: Implementation

Initiate organizational updates, deploy training, and refine new processes for operations in a phased approach. Take over (or have your own) platforms and billing accounts in place to continue marketing. Focus on knowledge transfer from your agency partners.

If you currently rely heavily on 3rd parties for media operations the natural time to transition is when contracts are set to expire, and resources are in place to minimize the transition period where performance could be impacted.


Step 5: Execution

  • Launch campaigns and operate in new sourcing models
  • Conduct ongoing operations of campaign management, reporting, and product utilization 
  • Monitor KPIs affecting business goals carefully during transition periods
