The marriage of big data and digital advertising should be able to deliver accurate attribution statistics for media buyers. With so many digital channels now available, your clients want to know if they should put more money into email or if they would reach more consumers with a video ad campaign. Good attribution modeling can give them answers.
It’s hard enough to measure ROI on digital advertising but when attribution models are used incorrectly the audit trail can get downright confusing. Should a marketer be happy with the current last-click attribution model which is the industry standard? Some analysts say marketers should be willing to work a little harder to properly value formats like social media and organic search which are vastly under-counted.
