Digging Into Data: Our Top Analytics & Marketing Columns For 2015
Want to learn more about how analytics can strengthen your marketing strategy? Take a look at the analytics and marketing columns our readers were most interested in this year.
With new technologies and a mountain of data at our fingertips, sorting and analyzing data have become more essential than ever before. That’s why savvy marketers are taking advantage of analytics to understand consumers and make better decisions on their marketing strategies.
But navigating the complex landscape of analytics can be tricky; an IDG Connect study earlier this year found that nearly half the organizations surveyed had a difficult time drawing insights from data.
That’s why we’re fortunate to have a talented group of contributors here on Marketing Land to guide us on the tools and tactics used to measure marketing performance. One of the top columns this year broke down the data surrounding the iPhone to give marketers an idea of how they should tailor their mobile efforts. Other columns looked at retrieving data lost due to ad blockers (and other content blocking apps) on iOS 9.
