Elevate Your Marketing Mix and Attribution Modeling (Half Day)

How to Boost Your Marketing ROI With More Profitable Advertising and Media Decisions
(Half Day Workshop)

Many marketers are disappointed by their lackluster marketing ROI. When they turn to market mix modeling and attribution services to help guide them to an ROI boost, they are often frustrated by the ponderous pace or head-spinning complexity of these tools. Navigating the intricacies of the data, the media variables, and the vast array of modeling techniques can be a unique challenge even for seasoned marketers. Those without a solid understanding of today's analytics may find themselves with underperforming creative, inefficient media, and a disappointing marketing ROI.

This workshop will demystify the ROI modeling process and provide practical guidance. You will walk away feeling empowered to use modeling to improve advertising performance. With a solid understanding of the modeling landscape and best practices, you will become a better consumer of modeling services. All content and case studies will be discussed in clear, practical, and non-technical language to provide the insights and skills you will need to make smarter ROI-based marketing decisions, and to hold your modeling providers more accountable.

This workshop is led by instructors from Sequent Partners, a research and analytics consulting firm with an independent, expert, perspective on marketing mix and attribution modeling and years of experience educating modeling users.
