In the ever-increasing fast-paced world of marketing and communications, measuring what worked, if at all, is becoming more and more challenging. But what to measure? How to determine if it's important or just interesting?
In this energetic and entertaining presentation, Elton Mayfield will review many of the ways companies are measuring everything from blogs to TV, from print ads to social media, and how they all fit together to drive sales.
To quote Amanda Cox, head of the New York Times Graphic Department, "Data isn't like your kids. You don't have to pretend to love them equally." Force yourself to identify the "one metric that matters" in your organization.
Not everything that can be measured needs to be. But what matters MUST be.
