As CMOs now have become more involved in planning, it’s essential they have visibility into their data so they can provide detailed analysis to back up their spend requests and future activities.
According to a recent report by Forrester Research, Inc., enterprises also must be willing to dig deeper with their information, and embrace being data-driven as new norm of their marketing operations. The report, titled “The Marketing Measurement And Insights Playbook for 2018,” begins by describing the organizational shift that must occur to a standard of data-driven marketing.
“Marketers must change their attitude toward measurement: away from passively reviewing post campaign reports and toward actively analyzing those past results to guide future plans,” according to the report. “To make this shift, B2C marketers must embrace unified marketing measurement—an approach that uses big data and statistical analysis to credit marketing initiatives across touchpoints—combined with predictive analytics to inform prospective marketing plans.”
Such a unified approach could help organizations better measure performance, strengthen planning, and shift to a continuous optimization process, the report concludes.
The report playbook compiles and updates other Forrester research on how organizations can discover, plan, act, and optimize their marketing plans and campaigns with various data measurements and other tools and technologies.
