Marketing Analytics: Attribution Is Not Incrementality

One of the business side effects of the pandemic is that it has put a very sharp light on Marketing budgets. This is a very good thing under all circumstances, but particularly beneficial in times when most companies are not doing so well financially. There is a sharper focus on Revenue/Profit. From there, it is a hop, skip, and a jump to, hey, am...

The Power of Exponential Growth | Data Viz to Simplify Complexity

There has been a lot of heartbreak around the world with the CV-19 pandemic. This chart, from NPR, illustrates some cause for optimism. It shows the 7-day average new cases per day across the world.

Analytics On The Bleeding Edge: Transforming Data's Influence

Analytics teams are named for the silos and limitations within which they trap themselves. Paid Media. Owned Media. SEO. BI. Customer Service. Data Warehousing. Email.

Simple Tricks To Up-level Your Analytics Reports.

Like you, I consume a whole lot of reports every day – company data, public data. Many are acceptable, some are very good and all the rest leave me extremely frustrated with both the ink and the think. People make so many obvious mistakes. Sometimes repeatedly. Just yesterday I was quietly seething because none of visuals included in the report contained...

Smart Data Visualizations: Quality Assessment Algorithm

The gap between a bad and good data visualization is small. The gap between a good and great data visualization is a vast chasm! The challenge is that we, and our HiPPOs, bring opinions and feelings and our perceptions of what will go viral to the conversation. This is entirely counter productive to distinguishing between bad, good, and great. What...

Responses to Negative Data: Four Senior Leadership Archetypes.

Not everything a company does works out. (That is different from everything that a company is doing not working out. :)) If you are in the data business – my bread, butter and tofu – you often carry the burden of being the bearer of bad news. The conversion rate is down 30% at launch. The goal was to deliver a 30% increase in revenue, the team...

Deliver Step Change Impact: Marketing & Analytics Obsessions

Some moments in time are perfect to reflect on where you are, what your priorities are, and then consider what you should start-stop-continue. In those moments, you are not thinking of delivering incremental change… You are driven by a desire to deliver a step change (a large or sudden discontinuous change, especially one that makes things better –...

The Impact Matrix | A Digital Analytics Strategic Framework

The universe of digital analytics is massive and can seem as complex as the cosmic universe. With such big, complicated subjects, we can get lost in the vast wilderness or become trapped in a silo.
