Improve Marketing Maturity Using These Six Steps

Some associations are doing 'just okay' with their marketing efforts

This spring, Mighty Citizen released the “2023 Marketing Benchmarks for Mission-Driven Organizations,” based on responses from The Mighty GPS, a self-assessment for measuring marketing maturity for mission-driven organizations and includes an overall score and a maturity score across six key marketing categories.

The marketing maturity stages and scores measured were the Crawling stage (score 0-39), Walking stage (score 40-59), Running stage (score 60-80), and Soaring stage (score 81-100). Associations averaged 58.1, placing them in the “Walking” stage for marketing maturity—an OK performance.

While this is a good sign, it’s important not to get stuck in this stage. Successful marketing is about building momentum. “Fine” might work for now, but fine isn’t permanent or inspiring.
