Generating ROI: best business practices
- Marketing analytics
In the increasingly digitized world of today, marketing analytics is critical to the success of an organisation. However, many organizations do not have ready access to the valuable information stored in the various platforms that are being used.
One aspect that is important to measure is the return on advertising spend (ROAS). Advertising on digital platforms is vital, but can very quickly burn through your marketing budget. You need access to analytics to enable you to identify the advertising strategies that are giving you the best ROI, so you can channel your marketing dollars towards strategies that work.
Marketing analytics can also provide insights into sales and lead generation, customer preferences, trends and segmentation. These aspects are closely related, and an integrated approach works best to identify what information is required to support decision-making in marketing.
To make the best use of your data, therefore, you need to identify the right way to measure your marketing return on investment. Several options are available, including the following:
The MMM (marketing-mix modelling) measures the effectiveness of investments by channel. Although it can be used for both near-term planning and long-term strategic purposes, it has certain restrictions.
Firstly, it is slow in delivering applicable information (usually it takes years to collect high-quality sales and marketing investment data). Secondly, it does not measure minor changes in activities nor the extended effects of single reference point (touch point) investments.
The RCQ (reach, cost and quality) disperses reference points into their respective components, providing data on the number of consumers reached, cost per reference point and the quality of the engagement. Its drawback is that it doesn’t take network interactions into account.
Attribution modelling uses algorithms to determine how the budget used to convert traffic to sales is assigned to online reference points (e.g., websites, social-networks and email campaigns). Attribution modelling is an emerging approach to analytics.
As such, it has not yet been developed to its full potential, but is gaining momentum fast. Its drawback is that it is heavily dependent on cookies, which makes attributing the importance of the reference points a challenging task.
- Automated ELT/ETL
Marketing analytics is the deciding factor for future sales. However, in order for the data to be useful, they need to be structured and easily comparable. The usual methods for collecting data from various sources and displaying them in an integrated view are the ELT (extract-load-transform) and the ETL (extract- transform- load).
These are time-consuming processes with many unpredictable variables. Often, it takes months and even years to get a reliable picture, which translates into months and years of pending ROI. What is to be done to step up the process?
At Minerra, we believe the future of structured data lies in automation. Our solutions incorporate exactly that, providing our customers with state-of-art interactive dashboard software that enables instant analysis, reporting, and data sharing. Customizable fact tables and summarized business events are only some of the options offered.
Our BI analytics tools transform data from various organisational sources into a data structure optimised for reporting and analytics. Your data warehouses will always be updated with all relevant information pulled from all sources — spreadsheets, CRMs, HRs, ERPs and cloud sources. What’s more, the time required for data warehouse testing is dramatically reduced as all ETL / ELT code is automatically generated by our data warehouse automation software, thus producing error-free and consistent code.
