Measuring Marketing Attribution is Easier Than You Think

Let’s talk a little bit about cross-channel attribution.

Now, I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but I’ll be honest: you’ve probably been measuring your marketing mix wrong all this time.

As Bob Dylan once said, “The times they are a-changin’” – and he couldn’t have been more spot-on. Well… he probably wasn’t referring to the evolving digital marketing landscape – but the times are changing quickly when it comes to the customer journey and marketing channels. And as marketers, we need to rethink the way we measure attribution and marketing success.

The Challenge of Marketing Attribution

Believe me, I understand the headache of attribution models. Fully tracking how your marketing touchpoints contribute to your business in a meaningful way has been a pain-point for some time. Let’s face it: we all work hard, and we like to see real results. But more and more often, we struggle to connect the dots between our campaigns and the metrics that matter most to our long-term goals.

According to a survey conducted by eMarketer, insights-focused marketers will spend nearly 58% of their time trying to understand cross-channel measurement and attribution this year, and over 80% of senior-level marketing professionals are interested in learning more about multi-channel attribution. Clearly, the issue is front-of-mind, and with the rapid increase of channels, devices, and means of communication available to customers, measuring attribution is not only challenging – it is becoming increasingly important. Consumers are in the driver’s seat, and it’s our job as marketers to deliver the correct message, in the correct context, at the correct time.
