Introduction to Measurement & Attribution

Measuring marketing success requires skill and the appropriate tools to effectively assess the numerous touchpoints that affect customer action.  Measurement attribution – which is the ability to attribute results from each of those touchpoints and interactions – is a critical step in quantifying the success of your marketing efforts. 

The most important objective of attribution is to optimize the customer’s journey.  Such a journey will vary based on the type of customer and the various media channels which the customer encounters.  In fact, there are probably as many “journeys” as there are customers.  In order to understand how a customer makes a decision, and then deliver the experiences necessary that engage the customer across channels, measurement and attribution techniques must be employed in order to best track these journeys.

In this course, you will learn the foundations of measurement and attribution – what it is, how it functions, and the different methods and techniques employed. We will also review the benefits and challenges to attribution, as well as explore different approaches to advertising and considerations to keep in mind when identifying your target audience.

This course is the first 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.
