MTOTW #54: There is a lot of data available that can help you assess whether or not your marketing strategies are working. But some metrics are more telling than others. Here are a few examples:

  • meeting-charts-numbers-metrics-sales.jpgClick-through rate and bounce rate are better measures of banner ad effectiveness than impressions. They let you know if your audience is the right audience.
  • Pay attention to social media engagement rather than number of followers. Clicks, likes, and shares tell you which content is resonating with your audience.
  • Organic web traffic is a better indicator of SEO effectiveness than total web traffic.  
  • Track qualified leads in addition to total leads to gauge whether or not you’re attracting the right prospects.
