Measurement a major barrier to digital marketing growth in EMEA
Why it matters
Nearly two-thirds of marketing professionals indicate that driving brand awareness (62%) and generating leads & sales (61%) are their top priorities in digital marketing. But when it comes to demonstrating the role of advertising in achieving these goals, marketers struggle to select the most suitable metrics and cite measurement as a major barrier to the future growth of digital advertising.
- Two-thirds (68%) of respondents use engagement metrics (e.g. video completion rates, social sharing, CTR) to measure marketing effectiveness. These types of metrics have been criticised for failing to adequately capture the role of advertising in driving brand and business outcomes.
- Around half (54%) use business metrics (e.g. ROI, incremental sales, profit, LTV) to measure marketing effectiveness
- One third use attitudinal metrics (e.g. awareness, image and other brand KPIs) to measure marketing effectiveness
- Four in ten (39%) marketing professionals highlight metrics and measurement as a major barrier to the growth of digital marketing and advertising in EMEA
