At the same time, the buyer’s journey is expanding to include many more online interactions. Marketers are continually adopting new digital strategies like scheduling paid search and social media ads, working with influencers, and creating virtual events. It can be challenging to know which channels work for your business, industry, and products and to differentiate the channels that get results from those that are a waste of money.
This eBook explains why marketing attribution is critical to your team’s reputation as a revenue driver and provides tactics and strategies for improving it, no matter where you’re starting.
