#3 Build-your-own Martech stack Org canvas kit

This Martech canvas helps you to put your tools in the background of your marketing organization, strategy and tactics. You can run your entire marketing department with it, as a kind of visual marketing Operating System (mOS).

The canvas kit has been tested with a marketing team and CMOs since early 2016. The basic idea was to integrate all aspects of marketing in one ecosystem. Connect goals, org and stacks, so to speak.

We discovered two core elements that all 110 martech stackies (2015, 2016, 2017) have in common. Also, new valuable Martech ideas like the Martech Grand view from Scott Brinker and ‘marketing as the growth engines from Mayur Gupta were used to shape this martech org canvas.

In essence, every stackie has two main dimensions.

  • The Funnel dimension. Main keywords used are: attract, acquisition, engage, nurture, convert, loyalty, advocacy, etc.
  • The Function dimension. Think of keywords like analytics, data, demand generation, productivity, communications, collaboration, etc.
