As a start-up business, the ability to measure the effectiveness of your marketing efforts is crucial. By understanding which marketing channels are providing a return on your investment, you can focus your efforts on those, rather than wasting valuable resources on campaigns that aren’t producing the desired results.
Monitoring the impact of online marketing is relatively straightforward with simple analytics tools that provide valuable insights, but it is also possible to measure your offline marketing using digital technology. Online and offline marketing is becoming intertwined, and one often has an influence on the other. For example a particular TV ad or magazine advert can spark a conversation on a social media network which will engage your audience and drive visitors to your website.
