OKRs Examples



OKRs for Marketing Teams

The Marketing team should focus mostly on the top of the funnel. Their job is to generate interest and make people aware of what your company has to offer.

The focus may seem narrow, but there’s no shortage of plays that a Marketing team can work on. You can launch campaigns, do paid advertising, sponsor conferences, leverage content, etc. Having a good set of OKRs will help the team converge their efforts towards specific outcomes, and it will also make it easier for them to sync with the rest of the business.

Example of Marketing OKRs

You'll find below an example built around a fictitious company. Your OKRs should move from quarter to quarter and map to your company's reality – that's why we thought it's best to illustrate things as a case study that you can take inspiration from.


Askawoof is a startup building a platform to help companies run customer satisfaction surveys. Their Marketing team decides to focus on content for the next quarter to generate new leads and raise their SEO ranking.

General advice

Some of your objectives will be hard to achieve within a quarter. This is the case here with SEO improvements. So what should you do? The answer is to find leading indicators of success. You might not be able to observe progress on your core goals, but there might be ways for you to make sure that you're on the right path.

In the example below, the Marketing team balances things by adding some KRs that can be tracked weekly (number of backlinks), and other ones that may take longer to see results (search rankings).

How to track your Marketing OKRs?

A common mistake when tracking OKRs is to use a spreadsheet. They’re flexible, but you’ll lack the ability to see trends and it’ll quickly become hard to manage for your team.

Instead you can use Tability to simplify the tracking of your OKRs–and as a bonus, you’ll find dozens of templates ready to go in the app.
