In the early 1900s, Schlitz Beer was in trouble. Market share and sales were down. The forecast was bleak. So the company hired Claude Hopkins, a famous copywriter and advertiser, to create a campaign.
After a tour of the Schlitz Beer facility, Claude noticed the intricacies of the beer-making process:
- Pipes and filtering pumps were cleaned twice a day.
- Beer bottles were sterilized four times before filling.
- An artesian well brought in fresh, clean water for creating beer.
- Brewing rooms had an air filtration system to impede contaminates.
Guess what? Every beer manufacturer had this same process… it was common knowledge and never used by other beer manufacturers in advertisements. Hopkins used this information in an advertising campaign to propel Schlitz Beer from eight in the US to tie with first.
Drucker is right, the basic function of every company is marketing and innovation, but if an innovative company isn’t marketing, then it may not do as well as expected. This is why marketing is more important than ever.

Marketing Revenue Impact
According to Gartner’s CMO Spend Survey, as of earlier this year, marketing spend stagnated for many companies. Marketing budgets are about 11.2% of company revenue, unchanged from the previous year.
With the coronavirus pandemic, many marketing budgets have tightened further. Marketers are tasked to do more with fewer resources. It’s never been more important for marketing to prove their value and show how they contribute to the company’s revenue.
As there are multiple moving parts to every campaign and someone has to collect all this information into a spreadsheet or chart, it’s not always easy to see revenue attribution.
In our latest release, you no longer have to meddle with manual reports or use other internal resources to try and cobble together some sort of report. In one big dashboard, you can see the revenue attributed to marketing, and uncover the campaigns doing well and those that could use some improvement.
What if you could, at the click of a button, set up and automate complex campaigns and use more of your time for strategy?
