Give a brief overview of the company, its uniqueness, and its vision. DefinedLogic was started in 2002 by partner William Meyers and Alex Shanley. As the internet became a key driver of business strategy, DefinedLogic found a niche working alongside business and IT teams to improve dialog and define requirements for digital projects. Our foundation, rooted in consulting, allowed companies to achieve better results from technology investments. As technology has advanced; so does the DefinedLogic’s offerings.

Give a detailed description of the featured personnel’s influence over the company and the industry.
Robert Arace is the Head of our Digital Acquisition and Insights group at DefinedLogic. His specific realm of influence within the company is multichannel digital marketing strategy, execution, and measurement. In addition to this, Rob also specializes in web analytics tracking strategy and execution. From a marketing/analytics strategy perspective, Rob is involved with defining business objectives and goals internally and with our clients, digital campaign preparation, execution and reporting/optimization. From a measurement perspective, Rob and his team are involved with outlining the tracking strategy, detailing the technical requirements, implementing the architecture via a tag manager platform and creating reports in business intelligence software.
Describe the experiences, achievements or lessons learned that have shaped the journey of the company.
Specifically, for our Digital Acquisition and Insight group, we used the fail fast method. We have been building out this group for the past several years and we never feared failure, we learned from it and learned quickly. From each of our failures we adjusted our services to better meet the demand of our clients. This allowed our team to build out established processes that we were able to prove out in the market place. In the first 2 years of our groups existence, we became a Google Marketing Platform Partner – we believe that this is a testament to ability to hypothesis test different practices and deploy that quickly.
What are the challenges faced while providing Google solutions and how is DefinedLogic serving to tackle them?
a. One challenge that we face is to ensure that we are aligning expectations with our clients — making sure that our clients have a complete understanding of the capabilities and the limitations of the platform is imperative to execute a successful campaign and to maintain a healthy partnership with our clients. In order to do this we host a kick-off meeting where we clearly define our main objectives and goals and how we plan on accomplishing them.
b. Our team looks to approach each project with a customized solution to each of our client’s needs, we don’t necessarily have an out of the box solution for each of our clients. We have found that taking the time to create a unique strategy for each client is extremely beneficial to the long-term success to each of our campaigns.
What according to you could be the potential future of Google solutions and how does DefinedLogic envision sustaining its competency?
A potential next step for Google in our minds would be for them to provide a CMS solution to their Google Marketing Cloud Customers. This would give them a unique opportunity to integrate Google Analytics and many of the new 360 suite offerings that Google Provides. DefinedLogic takes an agnostic approach to our platform selection, we always have the resources to be able to service multiple platforms if needed – we stay prepared by not singling out any particular language or platform.
