N.E.T.S Concept for Digital Age Marketing

The Michigan Ross N.E.T.S. framework is successfully used by companies around the world. This proprietary approach to developing marketing strategies in a "digital world" leverages the dynamics of human behavior and the pervasiveness of contemporary technology to drive business results. At the intersection of these two drivers lies a sweet spot where perceptive marketers can leverage the ever-evolving media landscape to create ideas, messages, products, and behaviors that spread from person to person. N.E.T.S. represents:

  • N = the dynamics of networks in a digital world
  • E = the context of the environment in a digital world
  • T = the tools, the instruments and technology we have at our disposal to activate people
  • S = success, how we measure the impact of our efforts
How is it used? This approach is used to inform and guide the development of:
  • marketing strategies and branding efforts
  • creative ideation and content creation
  • product launch endeavors
  • distribution, partnerships, and influencer marketing initiatives
  • analytics and measurement plans for communication ambitions

All of which can be applied to both B2C and B2B marketing needs.
