As many of us already know, there are vast quantities of data available to marketers which should enable them to organise campaigns better, easily analyse their performance and demonstrate how they are contributing to the overall revenue of the business. The only problem is, being able to measure performance and reporting in businesses largely revolves around manual processes as well as disconnected tools. This is where marketing dashboards can help to provide some game changing benefits to businesses that make use of them on a regular basis.
Here are five of the top benefits of using Marketing Dashboards:
Viewing the wider picture
One of the biggest benefits of using marketing dashboards is the fact that it makes it easier for marketers to view their marketing strategy by removing siloed systems in processes and comms which enables them to highlight changes in behaviour as well as trends. By using these tools you can combine datasets to enable you to have a clearer picture of patterns and opportunities that can help you drive business growth.
Make better decisions
Another key benefit is the fact that when all your marketing data is in one place and available to all stakeholders it makes the decision-making process much smoother. By having marketing dashboards in place for all marketing channels can make it easier to make decisions based on accurate data which will take less time to make as a result.
Increased visibility over your business
Keeping track of both sales and marketing activities can prove troublesome. It is usually down to the fact that most of the information is hidden which can result in bad decisions being taken. Therefore, having a marketing dashboard in place will enable a business to view ongoing activities in real-time, improve accountability as well as making it much simpler to see which activities are helping to deliver results for the business.
Showcase the ROI of marketing activities
Through the use of marketing dashboards, it is easier for businesses to demonstrate ROI on their marketing activities. Dashboards bring together vast quantities of data, improve it and showcase it visually. Furthermore, this form of data representation allows marketers to understand what marketing is working and what channels are best for it in addition to showcasing the channels that are least effective and should be removed in favour of those that generate additional revenue for the business.
Increase the collaboration across your business
Created for marketers to use, marketing dashboards provide marketing teams with a single channel of communication which allows the whole team to see how things are going at the same time. By making use of collaboration tools through a marketing dashboard solution, marketing teams can deliver better results by discussing data points through in-app comments and conversations.
