Turning Digital Data into Decisions (Half Day)

Reducing Information Overload & Driving Action
(Half Day Workshop)

Despite its pervasiveness, data analytics is still a mysterious “black box” to many marketers. Rows and columns of numbers that are supposed to somehow inform marketing tactics often lack the related insights necessary to drive business decisions.

In this workshop, we will focus on using visual storytelling methods to explain the context of marketing data to outside audiences and/or internal stakeholders. This enables easier identification of issues in the customer journey, CRM, automation, campaign(s) and other initiatives designed to move customers through an engagement process.

Attendees will sketch out their marketing processes for better visualization of the “working parts” of a campaign or customer journey. They will then learn how to develop a framework of campaign evaluation by viewing it through a visual workflow. This multi-channel visualization technique will equip the omnichannel marketer to more easily identify and communicate what’s working and what’s not working on a customer journey.

Attendees will also learn effective visual data presentation techniques to help drive good marketing decisions. Understanding what visuals to give to which audiences, and how your audience processes information, is critical to successfully driving business decisions using data. Participants learn how to think about stakeholder needs in order to communicate effectively to any audience.

This workshop is part of the ANA’s Digital Marketing Analytics Mastery Program. Our Mastery Programs are designed to be flexible and fit your time and budget. These programs can be delivered over two full days or as a series of independent half-days.
