Seriously, the issue is that most analytics frameworks don’t tie all essential marketing metrics back to financial statements. We have been preaching about how this needs to be done since 2001. I suspect that I may have not been specific enough unless I was pushed for details. Today, I’d like to share a short video presentation that should better explain how this is done. Hopefully, you can create an organization that can manage your marketing efforts with true accountability and react to changes in real time as needed.
This marketing analytics framework will allow you to get your reporting structure set up properly so that your analyst can free up her time to deliver real insights on analysis instead of focusing on delivering meaningless reports that most people ignore. This framework will win over your CEO and CFO; just show them.
