From Vanity Metrics to Revenue: The Future of Measuring Content’s Impact on the Business

What It’s About

As Marketing is increasingly accountable for revenue outcomes, it’s never been more crucial to connect the dots between personas, accounts, solutions, assets, and results across channels – as that’s at the heart of proving impact. More and more, teams are challenged to go beyond measuring content vanity metrics (e.g. impressions, downloads) and instead report on true strategic outcomes (e.g. opportunities within key buying groups, revenue). Despite the amount of data and tools at our fingertips, the volume of data actually clouds insights and prevents teams from working smarter, not harder. By mitigating data silos across your Marketing organization, teams can reduce internal conflict and start proving content ROI.

In this session, we’ll cover practical tips for defining and rolling out a content engagement system of record across your Marketing team to facilitate efficient planning, delivery, and measurement of amazing content experiences at scale.

Takeaways include:

  • How content measurement has changed and why effective, connected measurement is becoming increasingly critical
  • Common challenges and stages of content measurement maturity across organizations
  • Stories and practical tips for defining and rolling out a content engagement system of record across your Marketing team

Why You Should Go

One of these days you’ll realize there’s a lot more to content marketing metrics than just traffic. If you’ve reached that point and even if you haven’t, this session is the perfect opportunity to learn how content can support important strategic initiatives.
