The writing style is dull, but the content is intelligent and thorough. Lenskold provides models to evaluate the expected return on investment ROI and profitability of marketing campaigns under consideration.
The author rightly points out that the net present value NPV of gross margin – not revenue – is the basis for these calculations. Campaigns with an ROI lower than the cost of capital will be rejected.
Remaining options can be prioritized in favor those with the highest ROI. The models all include projected results of the campaigns. Projections can be based on historical results or tests. While reading the book, I was thinking that companies lwnskold already using an ROI approach to make marketing decisions probably lack historical data to correlate sales with specific marketing investments, making accurate projections difficult to say the least.

But you’ve got to start somewhere. Another challenge that comes to mind is the long sales cycle of a big-ticket product. The customer may be influenced by a variety of exposures, such as advertising, direct mail, and tradeshow presence over a long period of time. The author does cover residual value the impact one marketing investment has on the performance of future investments and the effect of integrating markrting versus implementing them independently.
Nevertheless, I think understanding your sales process and making informed judgments is smarter than being a slave to imperfect data. What about brand awareness advertising, that has no measurable linkage to incremental profits? The book has very interesting views on the approach to ROI as a main marketing decision making tool.
However, it is not well written and some concepts seem like they are explained to “look” more complicated than they really are. I think that this book deserves a review and a new edition, to make the reader experience more enjoyable. It is, however, worth reading. My son liked it. This book was ahead of its time in many respects. The author foresaw the tremendous push to demonstrate ROI that has followed in the years since its publication.
Today marketjng social media, website analytics, marketing automation and salesforce automation software, we now have many new tools to demonstrate the impact of marketing campaigns. But even though the rules of marketing have changed, the rules of finance have not. And I found a lot of value lenskoold the ROI methologies explained in the book. Chapter 6, which detailed the methodology for calculating Return on Investment, was the most useful to me.
There was also a good discussion on how to allocate costs associated with brand awareness programs and marketing infrastructure investments.

However, there are not many real world examples with the actual numbers plugged into formulas which leaves you guessing at how to handle some of the numbers.
In the past, marketing professors often taught that companies could not hold their marketing managers responsible for the success or penskold of promotional programs. Numerous external variables that these managers could not control – including delivery problems, poor retail displays, sales slumps, competitors’ moves, buyer psychology, and so on – could undermine their outcomes.
Marketing managers were off the hook when it came to results, particularly return on investment ROI. Today, every corporate dollar matters and companies demand accountability from their marketing professionals.
If a promotional program doesn’t work, its manager will quickly be out of a job. Strategic marketing consultant James D. Lenskold provides his tactics for calibrating marketing ROI, plus a basic “marketing ROI formula” you can use with variations and, lenskkold, some hands-on expert help to quantify the returns you derive from your marketing efforts. Though his mathematical formulations can be daunting, his accessible work explains a logical methodology for measuring marketing programs’ results.
The strengths of this particular book are its areas of focus on the foundation of marketing ROI principles, outlines of key financial roo, identifying where ROI measurements go wrong, analyzing investment and return patterns – acquisition and retention, assessing ROI thresholds, reinforcing the marketing lehskold responsibility for campaign performance, and reviewing issues that are prevalent within larger corporate settings.
This is worth the cost of investment, but additional information would be useful in any reprints – more detailed implementation tactics, ROI forecasting strategies for small and mid-market companies, and emphasizing in greater detail the decision making trees for applying ROI.
