Designed for small to mid-size businesses, companies can login to the beta version of the MarketingReportCard.com and document and measure tactical marketing results over time.�
“The MarketingReportCard.com beta is simple and free to use.

If you can agree on how you are measuring your marketing, it becomes easier to improve your marketing performance,” said Ben Bradley, Macon Raine’s founder and managing director.
MarketingReportCard.com was originally envisioned as a dashboard for small and medium sized companies seeking a simple way to evaluate tactical marketing performance. Marketers use this tool identify, agree upon Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and measure marketing performance month over month, so they can quickly see when performance is slipping and when to take corrective action. To be effective, KPIs must be monitored and updated monthly. Continuous monitoring allows marketers to quickly take action when performance drops below benchmark levels.
According to beta tester Velu Palani, CEO of GetMeTheRightJob.com, “if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. MarketingReportCard.com helps you quickly define and measure the critical pieces of your tactical marketing program.”
The BETA version of the MarketingReportCard.com uses a simple spreadsheet interface that makes the learning curve virtually non-existent and also to make data collection quick and painless. Since no two companies are the same, marketers using MarketingReportCard.com can define their own KPIs as well as their own methods for weighting and measurement.
