It is important to us to see it in its entirety instead of staring the numbers of just one channel. MRACE makes sure that actions are clear and there is a core idea. At the same time, it is easier for us to perceive what each expert of Suomen Digimarkkinointi does to achieve the goals and why. I have presented the model to other country managers of our company. As an example, in France they are really interested in our progress in Finland because of the great results.

The overall goals of marketing were highlighted with a digital marketing strategy. At the beginning, keyword research was executed and the content planning ensured us that we utilize and produce the right kind of content considering the whole customer purchase journey.

Every marketing activity, outcome, and individual prices and ROI have been clearly traceable according to the MRACE marketing model.
The effectiveness of digital marketing is directly reflected in Toshiba’s sales figures.
Toshiba’s represented business field is highly competitive, which keeps us on our toes all the time. Good results require ongoing measurement, tracking and development. Toshiba’s goals and expectations of us have perfectly matched our MRACE marketing model from the very beginning. In the marketing model, all operations are strategic, goal-oriented, and clearly measurable. It is great to work with a customer who wants to be a trendsetter in their own business field and serve their own retailers in the best possible way.
