Draft your marketing budget, track it each month and adjust it to reflect your priorities. Beautiful Numbers, a consulting firm specializing in marketing performance management, helps you optimize how you manage your budget with this collaborative online table.
Co-managing the marketing budgetRecord the forecasted marketing budget in the table, sorting it by objective and by quarter, and assign each budget row to the appropriate owner. The owner is then responsible for updating the row with the actual expenses. Transparency and visibility are at the forefront of this approach—hold your team accountable and automatically consolidate your budget rows. In addition, you can export the table to Microsoft Excel and synchronize your budget with RowShare at any time. This allows you to conduct deeper analyses and easily share the information with accounting and finance.
