It’s 2017. We’re neck-deep in the age of ‘Big Data.’ No matter what aspect of marketing you want to measure, there’s a tool to help you track it. In fact, ‘powerful analytics’ is probably the most highly-touted feature for most of tools we use as online marketers. We have access to so much data, so many metrics that… we’re drowning in it. Gone are the days of data for Big Data’s sake.
For digital marketers, it ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. There are serious challenges inherent to the digital landscape that nobody is talking about. Not long ago, advertisements were the end result of days, weeks, or even months of painstaking research and creative work. Ingenious ads from Coca-Cola, Kodak, McDonald’s, and even Marlboro cigarettes, for better or for worse, ...
It takes just 50 milliseconds for users to form an opinion about a website. To put this into context, an average human blink takes about 100-400 milliseconds. To say that we judge websites in the blink of an eye would be an overstatement. When you have so little time to make an impression, it’s crucial that you get your design right. One overlooked element of modern design is the hero image.
Tailoring the online experiences of customers to best fit their needs and preferences is the ultimate goal of most new technologies that shape the online marketing landscape today. Indeed, it’s only recently that we have developed the capacity to adapt websites to the broader context of a user session, or individual viewing experiences.
An AdWords text ad looks exactly the same on mobile as it does on desktop. You don’t have to worry about the difference. And besides, it only takes a few characters anyway. There’s little room for error. Now contrast that with a Facebook ad creative, where you’re juggling different headline, image, text and CTA options for different placements, across different devices.
When it comes to split testing, you’ve been doing great so far. You’ve got a great design, compelling copy and excellent flow. In your eyes, this new page is irresistible. But before you press that launch button and unleash it to an unsuspecting world, there are a few more things you’ll want to check. Let’s take a closer look at them: 1.
I’m not going to lie to you: this can get very tricky. It’s so complex that many ecommerce platforms don’t even bother with it. An attribution model is how you assign credit or value for sales and conversions across various customer touchpoints. It includes all your digital channels – paid search, display, email, social media, organic search, referrals – and the impact that ea ...
You’re already an SEO sensei. You’re a content creator, PPC pro, marketing maven, and analytics ace. If you need it for online success, you’re aware of it and on top of it. But if you’re only using “regular” old Google Analytics, you’re missing out on a ton of valuable and free data that could help you increase revenue, engagement, and clicks. That’s the ecommerce trifecta.
The transition from text-based to visual marketing is already well underway, as customer demand drives organizations to rethink how people communicate on the most basic level. Cisco estimates video will constitute 80% of all consumer Internet traffic by 2019, and although marketers are racing to catch up, they’re still behind the times: in 2015, 52% of senior marketing executi ...
Call it a case of too much of a good thing. Google Analytics puts a lot of data at your fingertips. It’s a mountain of metrics, and a deluge of dimensions. With it, you can drill deep down into your website visitors, their demographics, and their behavior. But by default, it just throws everything into one enormous bucket. The reports show stats, graphs, and charts for “All Users/Sessions”.
Google Analytics is the de-facto industry standard analytics tool. It’s installed on almost every single business site. (It’s even looked at too, sometimes, too.) It provides a tremendous amount of data that you can manipulate, along with customization options for advanced features that power users crave. Also, it’s free.

The holidays are a magical time of year. It’s the season where we are bombarded with as many brand promotions as we are Christmas songs. Over the past decade, shoppers have slowly quit spending the day after Thanksgiving clawing through massive crowd scenes in search of the best deals. Instead, e-commerce websites have been experiencing a steady growth in sales as online shoppi ...
Optimizing the customer experience is a great way to get new customers. It’s also one of the best ways of fostering customer loyalty. According to Teradata, only 41% of marketing executives are using customer engagement data to inform their marketing strategy. Despite this, marketers and other organizational leaders alike are neglecting the customer before and after the sale.
When it comes to customer dissatisfaction, Spirit Airlines has consistently been the forerunner in the airline industry. Even in the recent travel report published by the American Customer Satisfaction Index it had the lowest score, much below the average benchmark. Having said that, you’d expect those numbers to reflect on the company’s growth rate, right? Wrong.
Most pricing pages have three plans laid out horizontally across the page. But why? And in what order? Simply copying what everyone else is doing, without understanding the purpose behind certain features or the research that shows which features convert the best, will give you a hollow page that fails to convert.
In the zone. Feeling it. In the groove. Zeroed in. A state of flow. We’ve all been there (hopefully) at some point in our lives. It’s almost magical. When it all comes together, and everything slides effortlessly from point A to point B. Athletes, writers, speakers, artists, chefs, doctors, musicians, teachers. And users…if you’ve done your job properly.

For this to happen, it’s essential to have a deep understanding of how your customers behave in relation to your brand— luckily, the tools to get these insights ...
Facing growth setbacks is part of the risk of doing business. While most companies may only highlight their successes to the public, it’s important to understand that every business has its own group of challenges. The key is to recognize the issues and take the necessary actions to move forward. “You may be facing your share of woes from financial problems to employee short ...
A completely accurate client analytics account is few and far between. That forces you, brave agency veteran, to roll up your sleeves and try to make sense of the chaos you’re looking at for each unique scenario. You didn’t plan for it. You didn’t charge for it.
