As a marketer today, you know that data and how it is used has transformed marketing. Each time you run a campaign, you adjust and capture new insights.
With all the uncertainty in the market right now, you know that you will have to respond differently. You know you will have to change how you do things
Still, you can't help but ask yourself:
"What should I change to get the best insights from my campaigns? Where do I start?"
What is the riskiest part of my campaigns that needs my attention? Right now!
How do I know I am measuring the right things to understand how my campaign is performing?
Where do I start? How do I decide what needs to change now and what should remain as it is?
How can I increase my confidence that the changes I am making will produce the results that I want to see?
What you need is a quick and repeatable way to identify the change that is going to have the biggest impact.
You've already tried lots of tactics in the past, but is that enough?
A / B Testing
You run alternative tests all the time. But how do you decide what you are testing. Better engagement? Evaluating different channels?
But were you converting the right people? How do you know you are shortening sales cycles?
You are measuring all the data points that your tech team tells you that you should collect. But do you really understand what it means? Shouldn't you be telling them what insights you want to collect?
Do you really understand the full cost of running campaigns or just the cost of running ads? How do you measure the cost of a lead?
Throwing Spaghetti at the Wall
You've even tried the fire hose tactic of just trying tons of things to see what sticks.
Great news! There's a better way to do this:
In this course you will pull up out of the weeds of unorganized tactics to perform a self-assessment that highlights areas to prioritize changes, and make deliberate decisions on how to move forward.
We call that a Campaign Strategy Checkpoint.
It's a habit you can form and continue using long after the course.
Embracing the strategic thinking concept of See, Select, Strike.
You will adopt an experimental approach of Action - Measure - Insight to uncover possibility.
You will reframe how you look at the funnel in terms of Revenue Analytics.
You will move from a point where you aren't sure if adhoc changes you make have impact, to confidently planning future campaigns with the intention to gain actionable insights.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I'm not technical. I have a tech person who sets up what we measure in campaigns. Will this be a problem?
A. The course focuses on strategy and isn't tied to a specific technology. You don't have to be technical. The measurements discussed may already be ones that your tech team has recommended you look at. If so, this will give a richer understanding on using the data. If you aren't collecting these measurements already, then it will help you discuss your requirements with your tech team.
Q. I am already running campaigns and am happy with some of the results. Will I have to change what is already working?
A. That's great! You will use the learnings and tools in this course to help you identify where you aren't getting the results you want. The benefit of the Heat Map Assessment tool is that it can help you see the contrast between what's working and what is not. We are big believers in not fixing what isn't broken. You won't have to change things that are already working.
Q. There are lots of courses and info out there on using metrics in marketing campaigns. What makes this course different?
A. What makes this course different is that it is teaching you a strategy that you can use in planning ongoing campaigns. Often other courses focus on tactics. Or just explain things that you use only during the course and have no practical application later.
Q. Will I really have time to implement a checkpoint into my regular campaign planning?
A. You will be forming a habit to make deliberate decisions about what you are testing in campaigns. The insights you gain will steer you in a positive direction.
