Discovering your Data with Greg Ebbecke, Vice President, Business Intelligence, Harmelin Media
When it comes to measuring your client’s success, your analysis can only be as detailed as the data you collect. This tactical presentation will cover questions to ask to ensure access to the “right” data, tips to avoid misinterpreting the data you collect and best practices in creating compelling visuals and analysis from the data available. Along the way, we will touch on the allure of (and obstacles to) 1:1 attribution, the value of statistical analysis and other ways to turn promise into potential when translating media delivery into business success.
