It’s great to have the insights at hand, but what’s vital is proper evaluation of this information and action on these insights to fuel your strategy and guarantee success and growth.
What is considered roper evaluation?
Put simply, it’s the ability to see your data clearly and in real-time in a way that allows you to make agile decisions.
We’ve detailed some of the typical pitfalls many people fall into to allow you to see where you can make adjustments to increase your ROI.
Most of the inefficiencies in evaluation occur for the following reasons:
- Not having a defined KPI driven strategy for running campaigns. You and your traffic source need to be aligned, at a granular level, on what is considered to be a successful campaign
- Campaigns take too long to evaluate, this means marketers are waiting for players to fully mature to decide if the traffic is valuable, and pausing campaigns while they evaluate. This means a stop-start approach that can lose ground with campaigns that are delivering.
- Sometimes this can lead to evaluating and making decisions too quickly based on a small number of players, meaning when you scale campaigns don’t perform as expected.
- Not optimizing campaigns on granular placement level data – and scaling or pausing campaigns as a whole.
These can all be overcome with better data management.
What does better data management look like?
The effectiveness of your activity is dependent on four things:
- How well you know your customer and what goals you set for your campaign and how quickly you can see the performance of your activity.
- How easily you can access insights from this data- typically using a third-party BI tool can be a stumbling block in this process.
