The Bowen Craggs Index™
What does the best in the world look like?
What does “best” even mean? How can it be measured comprehensively and objectively to help everyone be better? Bowen Craggs has been measuring corporate digital channels for 20 years and the Bowen Craggs IndexTM has the answers.
How can you become the best you can be?
We want you to learn from the best, see what they are doing and use this information as an accelerator to significantly lift the performance of your digital communications.
How do you compare to the best?
One of the most important things you can do to improve is to have a clear and objective perspective on how your organization compares to the best.
How do you stay the best?
Corporate communications, and the impact it can have on your organization, is changing fast and is now digital led. You are either improving or slipping. If you stand still, you will get left behind.
Why having a window to “best in the world” matters
Most people responsible for corporate communication are largely going it alone, relying solely on their own previous experiences. From this viewpoint, you only see a limited number of options.
Our job is to provide our clients with the clearest possible vision of who the best are, why they are the best, what they are doing to be the best, who’s catching up and who’s slipping behind.
Why is this valuable?
When you look through our window, you’ll see all the pieces of the puzzle and the different ways those pieces can fit together.
We’ll help you see your audiences more clearly, their diversity, their needs, and the different expectations they have when it comes to your communications.
When you have a seat by our window, you can see the data, compare yourself, explore what your peers are doing, and discover the approaches that others are having success with, so you can avoid costly mistakes.
You might not be the best yet, but you can learn from the leaders and use those lessons to accelerate and lift the performance of your digital communications.
