Marketers are under mounting pressure to demonstrate results. In this episode, the renowned measurement master Katie Delahaye Paine shares her latest tips on how to successfully overcome the challenge while preparing for the new developments ahead. Join us to learn two key reasons this issue persists, why you need to set the right objectives, and how silos and fiefdoms can doom your efforts. Innovative AI-driven tools are on the way, but we must apply them with care.
- We've got to go for the holistic concept, getting the whole team together to work toward mutually agreed objectives.
- We want to consider what objectives were picking very carefully.
- We have to make sure the tools we are using are actually right for the job and it is likely that a fully automated measurement is never really going to be available.
