Resolutions for Marketing Analytics


#1 Strengthen the fundamentals

97% of companies use data to capture business opportunities but only 44% actually trust the numbers flashing on their dashboards. If you’re only looking to keep one New Year’s resolution, it would be to make sure your marketing analytics stay grounded on the goals and decisions that people at different levels in your organization actually make.

#2 Invest more in automation

Gartner says analytics make up the biggest slice (9.2%) of marketing spend in 2017. Two main areas stand out when it comes to marketing analytics spending: customer data and marketing attribution.

In most marketing analytics workflows, a lot of activities are best handled by machines. It’s not hard to imagine how much better life would be with tools like automated dashboards around.

#3 Do more of the exciting stuff

Harvard Business Review explains four ways AI boosts marketer’ productivity when working with data and analytics:

  1. Analyzing huge datasets quickly
  2. Finding and fixing errors in your dataset
  3. Providing real-time feedback, especially for streaming data
  4. Enabling text-based insight extraction

#4 Prescribe, don’t just predict

Analytics typically fall into four types: descriptive (what happened), diagnostic (what went wrong), predictive (what may happen), and prescriptive (what to do). Leveraging prescriptive analytics in your stack speeds up the decision-making process.

The nascent prescriptive analytics market is projected to grow into a $1.6-billion segment by 2022.

#5 Make your data work harder

This year, make sure that the data flowing into your marketing analytics pipeline meets the five dimensions of quality:

  1. Accuracy (Does my data tell me what’s really going on?)
  2. Completeness (Do I have all the data I need to make a decision?)
  3. Cleanliness (Is my data error-free?)
  4. Timeliness (Does my data allow me to respond right away?)
  5. Consistency (Do I have a single version of a given piece of data?)

 


Steps to Make Your Resolutions Stick


Actually make a resolution

Make sure you’re setting specific, measurable, realistic (SMART) goals for your marketing analytics stack.

Consider adding gamification to your action plan

Make attaining your resolutions enjoyable for everyone involved. Consider gamifying parts of your marketing analytics process. Put the right rewards and incentives in place to motivate your team.

Surround yourself with people who support you

Whether it’s your boss’s nod of approval or your team’s genuine commitment, you want more than just buy-in for your plan. You need help and encouragement from the right people. When times get tough, sometimes all you need is a helping hand to keep going.

Document your progress

Each component of a modern marketing program produces a unique set of metrics and KPIs, often distracting marketers from the things that really matter to the business. The key, according to IBM, is to have a sound understanding of how every marketing activity (and by extension, every set of metrics) contribute to the overall business goal.

The Anatomy of an Effective Landing Page for APAC Businesses

The Anatomy of an Effective Landing Page for APAC Businesses [INFOGRAPHIC]

Your landing page is arguably the most important component of your marketing campaign. After all, it’s the one that makes visitors into paying customers. For Asian companies that want to make an impact in the region, it pays to have a highly effective site.

Still, in order for that to happen, you will have to be familiar with the qualities of a good landing page. It’s challenge for many marketers in terms of allocating resources to the right components.

So what makes a truly effective landing page?

The Anatomy of an Effective Landing Page for APAC Businesses

A catchy call to action.

Don’t just put a subscribe button for the heck of it. You wouldn’t want your audience thinking, “ Why should I?” You need to convince them into taking action by showing what they
would expect after they take action.

That and a good CTA design will essentially boost your site conversions. Not sure how? Well, you can always consider customized CTA’s since they are sure to give 42% more conversions.

An alluring headline.

What does your article talk about? Well, your headline describes that for you. It also lures a prospect into reading what the content actually says.


What’s more, at least 90% of site visitors who read your call to action also read your headline. tweet this!


So, a few things about making content titles: keep them short, simple and strong enough to pull prospects in.

A compelling design.

While minimalist design schemes are the trend today, not all of these work well enough to keep prospects in asking for more. Good design is basically a principle in digital marketing, and not investing too much on this aspect may cost your leads.

Using unclickable graphics can lower conversion rates, as is the case with companies that render only 58% of their graphics clickable.


Testimonials and reviews.

Why should prospects want to purchase your product in the first place? Before they become paying customers, they want compelling reasons to trust you. 


Which is why at least 90% of B2B marketers consider testimonials and reviews highly effective. tweet this!


With this in mind, you can use testimonials and reviews from previous and existing clients to give your brand the level authority it needs to boost its lead generation.

Relevant ad copy.

Aside from making the headline irresistible, you also need to make an ad copy that outlines your service. At least 75% of marketers struggle in this area, which only requires using the right keywords to attract your target audience.

Moreover, make sure that the copy coincides with the headline of the article.

An easy fill form.


46% of marketers consider filling form optimization to increase the impact of their landing sites. tweet this!


For this reason, these effective lead capturing tool should be kept short. Adding too many requests for information will only turn visitors off, thereby increasing your bounce rate. A safer way is to get only a visitor’s email address. That’s all you really need!
