One of the main marketing resources are, without a doubt, metrics, since they allow implementing and controlling strategies while they are being implemented. In addition, they facilitate greater efficiency within the campaigns; they help save costs and generate higher profits. The key to success in your strategies is to have the right tools and means that allow the correct analysis of the impact of your campaigns. Analyzing the KPIs in marketing will help you to check if the strategy is working correctly and, above all, to know if you are achieving the established objectives.
Why is it so important to analyze your indicators?
In marketing, having well-established metrics will help you understand the needs of the market and your customers. For example, you can have, as metrics (among others):
-Cost of training
-Acquisition and profitability
Likewise, these metrics are an excellent monitoring and evaluation tool because they help to systematically check the progress of strategies, to detect deviations and, above all, to make better decisions.
It is a fact that a good marketing strategy could not be defined without the use of KPIs that allow you to measure and quantify the results of your campaigns, as well as to control the degree of fulfillment of the objectives.
Tips for analyzing your marketing KPIs
Here I am going to give you some tips that will be very useful to have a clear idea of your strategy and what types of KPIs you are going to measure:
Define your objectives:
The most important thing is to be clear about what your objectives are, how you can achieve them and who can act to meet each of them. For example: “300 online sales during 6 months” (instead of “increase sales”).
Be clear and concise:
As with any type of communication, KPIs in marketing must be clear so that the information they provide can be easily incorporated in order to have a greater chance of generating an action. For example: leads should be generated through email marketing campaigns.
Create quantifiable indicators:
Your KPI must be measurable in numbers. We know that feelings are not quantifiable and, for example, measuring customer satisfaction is subjective. However, if you put that same emotion on a scale of 1 to 10 according to their level of satisfaction with the service, you will be able to quantify it.
Relate your indicators:
If you make the indicators relate to each other, you will have a better and more complete view of your results in your metrics.
Give them equal importance:
Although it is a fact that there are indicators that can help you better measure your performance (e.g. ROI), each of the defined KPIs should be treated with the same importance, so that the same efforts are made for each one.
Once you have decided which metrics you will use in your strategy and you have started your campaigns, it is time to know the results.
