Hi everyone, we are revamping our website! Our CTO suggested using a non/minimal coding platform to replace the current that is locally built so that marketing team can make changes as they please without having to wait for software team.
I've got basically no coding experience (unless you count 2008 where I used HTML to personalise my MySpace page). Wix is too simplistic, and we've tried Webflow before but found it still requires a bit of coding knowledge to get right. Any other ideas?

Marketing Strategy help (B2B)

Company Name: Compass IOT www.compassiot.com.au

Context: Hey everyone, Compass is a digital transport management platform that aggregates traffic data to help city planners understand mobility. We've had some success driven by a lot of cold-calling and some customer referrals, but we're trying to think of how else to open up the sales funnel and continue to build brand presence. Up until this point, marketing has been fairly ad hoc, but since we are growing, I would like to spend more time planning better. Two main marketing objectives are to: increase brand awareness with non-customers, and help generate inbound sales leads

  • I need some help figuring out how to create or compose a comprehensive marketing strategy including what metrics are most useful to track the value of what we implement (I guess how to best track and maximise value for time + money)
  • How to best organise and track above mentioned metrics/goals?
  • Does anyone have any templates, tips, or words-of-wisdom that they found particularly useful? or things you think are NOT useful but get thrown around a lot?
