Marketing’s impact on the overall business is worth very little if not measured appropriately. And, once measured, a marketer needs to be able to understand the resulting impact on customer behavior in order to make better decisions in the future. At an industry level, these activities of measurement and attribution have been codified into a series of tools and techniques that can either be implemented internally or in cohort with industry partners/providers.

This two-day workshop, suitable for those with either limited exposure to – or just getting to know about – measurement and attribution practices, will cover what every marketer needs to know about the measurement and attribution ecosystem. Participants will learn the key players, practices, technologies, and terminology employed in measurement and attribution, as well as the ethical requirements that must be kept top of mind when dealing with data. They will learn the approaches to accessing different types of marketing data, as well as the tools and techniques used to measure and attribute consumer behavior across marketing channels. Lastly, participants will learn to assess their own organizational readiness for starting/improving such activities.

Who is this Workshop for?

This workshop is ideal for marketers with limited exposure to measurement and attribution, and that want to have a comprehensive understanding of what goes into marketing and attribution activities. Suitable for:

  • Marketing Coordinators, Managers and Directors

  • Business Owners

  • Fundraising and Nonprofit executives

  • B2B and/or B2C Marketers

  • Applicable across most industries
  • *Note: This workshop is not a comprehensive hands-on approach to building attribution models.
