Marketers seem to always be strapped for time.
Thinking back to my days in the agency world before coming to Kenshoo, there just never seemed to be enough hours in the day to get the basic tasks of social advertising done let alone the deep analysis and strategic work that could really positively impact my campaigns.
I remember a lot of late nights and early mornings to hit deadlines.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Data vs insights: the difference matters
In today’s era of big data, marketers have endless information to analyze and derive insights from. But the numbers alone can still leave you guessing as to why performance declined or why an ad is ineffective. That’s because there’s a stark difference between data and insights.
For marketers, data is simply the numbers…clicks, impressions, conversions, sales.
Meanwhile, insights are the nuggets of truth that marketers can put into action to achieve better performance.
In essence, data is a raw material to be refined and insights are the valuable end result.
Or…data = haystack, insight = needle.
Another issue with data is that it takes time to crunch. As a result, you could end up utilizing and deciphering only a fraction of the data at your disposal which limits the potential of improving your campaigns.
At Kenshoo, we know that a marketer’s technology platform needs to do more than just sit there and wait to be used.
