A deep dive into Adobe's Metrics not Myths campaign.
This is my inaugural column so let me set the tone for all future articles. I will dedicate this column to the promotion and advocacy of a data-driven marketing methodology. As I wrote on my Adobe blog, "I like to think the future of digital marketing lies in the intelligent use of data and the ability to inspire desired digital behavior based on an unparalleled understanding of content, channels and the target audience."
In October, Adobe relaunched its digital marketing solutions under the Marketing Cloud brand name. Along with this launch, we also began a fully integrated digital campaign to increase awareness and demand for the solution. The "Metrics Not Myths" campaign was launched to dispel the perception that marketing is a bunch of B.S. and that its value could not be established in numbers. We set goals for ourselves on multiple terms – overall awareness, media and social sentiment, social engagement, community growth, website traffic, and conversion.

Lots of useful data, analyzed correctly, and the analyses used to make the right marketing decisions can result in a successful campaign. And Adobe's recent campaign was an attempt to prove just that!
