Let’s be honest with ourselves, Marketing Analytics isn’t so much new as it’s a subject that is increasing hard for ignore. Over the past few years marketing ROI has headlined so many marketing conferences that someone remarked to me, “Enough already, we get the point.” And yet just knowing the issue isn’t solving the problem of how to get marketers fully up to a skill level that satisfies a growing demand by the c-level managers.  In this interview with marketing analytics pioneer, Laura Patterson we discuss how marketers must go about the business of measuring what they manage. The host is Jim Obermayer.
