Every Marketer cares about a few measurements everyday;
- Is my digital traffic consistent and what variables are affecting it?
- How many users are loyalists, some on the fringe, and some that need to be converted?
- Which of my spends are effective?
- Am I spending redundant advertising?
- Are some of my campaigns completely ineffective?
- Do I need to amplify some aspects of my marketing lifecycle?
But, the most critical of these topics is accuracy. Without accuracy in digital marketing measurements, the marketers in your organization are all guessing.
The marketer wants an accurate copy of what's happening with traffic across channels. While keeping at the back of the mind what campaigns are running, the marketer wants to ensure that visits, returning visits, and longer retained numbers are accurate and consistent to the spend happening to drive these users back.
