Data is Your New Oil: eCommerce Managers Tool Kit

Dec 09, 2016   |   Digital Marketing Analytics
Data is Your New Oil: eCommerce Managers Tool Kit -, Milestone Inc.

Digital Marketing and eCommerce Managers spend a great deal of time capturing, refining, and interpreting the endless stream of customer data. The data comes from multiple channels: social networks, Google Analytics, customer transactions, email, feedback forms and surveys. PWC and Think with Google research found that data driven organizations are three times likely to be more effective in making better decisions. The hospitality industry is no different, your guests are engaging with multiple devices and across multiple digital channels to make their buying decisions. The list of devices and channels within the eCommerce data stream to track can be overwhelming: website traffic, organic search, paid search (generic and branded), social Media, display media, meta search, email marketing, mobile and listings on referral sites.

Data is now everywhere, a continuous stream of data points all waiting to be turned into actionable insights. However, it is also true that capturing, managing, and delivering data driven insights from so many sources is, at best, challenging. It is important for companies to stay closer to customers’ needs and assist them to make better decisions during intent driven actionable moments where customers truly need someone to help them.

At Milestone, we saw common challenges across our portfolio of clients in regards to data accumulation, analysis, and action and developed solutions to eradicate these challenges.
