Cross-Device Tracking Approaches

Attribution is the practice of using advanced statistical approaches to allocate proportional credit to marketing communications and media activity across all channels, which ultimately leads to the desired customer action. It requires capturing numerous exposures of information to the audience (typically, advertising) and connecting them back to a desired outcome (usually a purchase).

Surprisingly, only 7.1% of marketers are satisfied with their current approach to attribution.  Perhaps this level of satisfaction is due to the challenges of understanding and capturing the behaviors across channels, activities and touchpoints. In this course, we will cover the various approaches to tracking information across devices and media channels, so that you can apply these principles to your marketing campaigns and improve overall campaign performance and enhance ROI.

This course is the second in a six-part series entitled: “Advanced Attribution.”  This course can be taken either as a stand-alone course or as part of the series. Powered by Marist.
