Our goal is to provide a path for companies to improve their Digital IQs, their marketing performance and, most importantly, their business results.

Math Marketing is all about using data science and automation to help Brands build better relationships with their clients, prospects, employees. We are #DATAaddicted. That means that everything we do should be measurable, comparable, quantified and based on data.  And we try very hard to do that everyday, with everything we do.

That Is the ethos behind our Digital IQ methodology. We created the Digital IQ to be able to compare and grade, in six different axis, the levels of digital marketing maturity of brands. We created this tools to provide a independent diagnostic for our clients - How your capabilities compare to those of competitors.

To do that we needed something that was:

1 - Automated - It needed to be performed without human intervention

2 - Objective - It had to be based on quantifiable data, not on human interpretation or data provided by firms

3 - Comparable -It had to be based on a standard criteria for all Brands.

3 - Based on Public data - It could not rely on previous knowledge, only on information that was public available

The Digital IQ is the result of a lot of research. We created a tool that looks at a website and, based only on its code, tools and metadata, grades Brands´ Digital IQ in six different dimensions.

The 6 Dimensions

Each dimension represents one aspect of Digital marketing Capability and each grade (from zero to five) measures the level of maturity in that dimension
