Our mobile-first world creates tremendous growth opportunities for marketers, and those who are evolving their approach to measurement to account for this new behavior are seeing the greatest results. We looked at the three core beliefs about measurement shared by leading marketers.
For growth-driven marketers, measurement isn’t an afterthought. It’s one of the key reasons they’re succeeding and growing in an ever-changing, mobile-first world. By evolving their approach to focus on business objectives first, use available tools and resources to bridge the gaps, and test bigger questions, they’re learning more quickly what really drives value.
It’s worth asking how you can take your own step forward on this journey. Do your KPIs accurately reflect your top business objectives? Do you know where you can and can’t attribute the impact of mobile on your business? And, how can you bridge those gaps? Have you experimented to find new business value from mobile?
Leading marketers don’t have a secret tool or a perfect KPI, but they do have the mindset to recognize the new opportunities and challenges brought on by mobile, and the flexibility to rethink measurement for growth.
