The first level is a 'basic' digital maturity. The organization has an online presence: the website provides information about the company and product or service. Social media accounts may have been set up. A rough thought has been given to the online marketing strategy and global objectives have been put on paper. Some statistics are measured, such as the number of visitors to the site and the number of followers on social media. There are several stand-alone tools that allow certain tasks to be performed (such as MailChimp for newsletters, Hootsuite for social media and Google Analytics to measure results).


By working on the online marketing strategy, the organization has already derived revenue from online. This online marketing strategy already aligns with the business goals. The website is findable online. It is also the "gateway" to other digital expressions of the organization, which communicate with each other. The site is set up to generate leads. Objectives are conditionally and measurably formulated. Thought has been given to segmenting different target groups and messages are adjusted accordingly.


There is a clear online marketing strategy in place. The company's digital strategy and direction are one. The customer's stage in the buying process of the different target groups is considered. Channels, content, timing and messages are adjusted accordingly. Optimizing conversion and lead generation are continuously on the agenda. Results are measured intensively and according to guidelines. Tactical objectives are adjusted on a monthly basis.


There is an online focus within the entire organization. The business model follows the online marketing strategy! Marketing and sales departments work together optimally to achieve goals and focus on the customer in all phases of the sales cycle. This is because it is clear in which part of the sales funnel an individual lead is in. Content is then personalized and automated based on behavior. Channels are "cross channel" integrated with each other.


Online and offline, the organization guarantees one constant brand experience. There is 1 on 1 communication with each individual (potential) customer and marketing automation is widely implemented. There is real-time analysis and action. This ensures loyal, faithful and engaged customers. The organization is constantly working to understand the customer and adapt its products accordingly.
