Because you want to grow your business, you need to use marketing and marketing campaigns. Once you start using marketing campaigns – for email, events, surveys, offers and promotions, donations and social media – how do you know if that marketing is working? The best way to tell is by using reports and analytics. Reports show you the outcome of a marketing campaign and measure a number of actions, like open rates, click rates, number of coupons sold, or donations raised. Analytics is the evaluation of the numbers contained in the reports – figuring out what worked for you and what didn’t, and what to do next. In this webinar, we will discuss: • How reports and analytics relate to your marketing • The most important data to look for when you’re running campaigns for email, events, surveys, offers and promotions, donations, and social media • How to evaluate a marketing campaign and use “the numbers” to decide what to do next.
