Digital marketing analytics is having the right data in hand, analysing it and using it effectively to change your business game.

The world of business has evolved and so has marketing. There is a gamut of data to work with and unless it is analysed and used effectively there are going to be unpleasant surprises and elusive results.

But whenever marketers hear the term, ‘Digital Analytics’ they immediately associate it with the most basic Digital analytics tool, Google Analytics that provides information on traffic, bounce rate etc. for their website. Yes, Web Analytics gives a treasure of website data, but what is needed is richer data. That data comes from social media, emails & organic search and that is what Digital marketing analytics covers.

Digital marketing analytics is the oil on which the contemporary marketing machinery runs and that is regardless of the business you own. It helps you track and analyse your data, providing you with the vision of where you’re going and if it’s going to pay off or no.

How?

Fact #1

Benefits of Digital marketing analytics

  • You get an opportunity to reach out to the global market with little investment.
  • You can track your results to determine the effectiveness of your marketing efforts.
  • You can build on your customer database, personalise your approach towards your visitors and build better relationships with market segmentation.
  • There is greater conversion rate.

So far so good. There is however one disturbing fact. Most marketers enter the world of Digital Analytics, but not all of them have the right approach. The below mentioned statistics according to the website ‘conversionsXL’ say it all.

  • Only 2% of companies are tracking lead generation to sales metrics.
  • 15% of companies don’t track ROI (Return on Investment)
  • 1 in 4 companies are depending on ‘manager judgements’ to make decisions.
  • 25% of all marketing teams can’t even figure out how to add data into consideration during the decision-making process.

Without the proper ability to analyse and optimize, Digital marketing Analytics cannot take you far. These are the metrics a marketer like you has to be mindful of.
