  • A content scoring methodology, dashboard, audit, and ROI analysis to prove it

How to Tie (and Trace) Content to Revenue – a Panel 
Jim Friedman, Todd Kirk and Joann Sciarrino

Most of us don’t sell only online. So, what’s the best way to approach an evaluation for brands that market through both online and offline channels? Can owned content be objectively tied and traced directly to ROI when the brand simultaneous manages clicks and bricks? Is there a measurable difference in ROI with higher levels of brand attachment for the owned content? Whoa, lots of questions. Good news: you can get the answers to these questions and your own (hey, it’s a panel discussion, right?) by attending this session. You can learn:

  • An objective approach to link owned content to demand and describe the ROI in terms of both revenue and brand attachment
  • How to enable more appropriate marketing allocation and budget setting, as well as accurate message and content insights

Web Design vs. Analytics Setup: 5 Little Design Decisions That Cause Big Analytics Problems
Andy Crestodina

When your website was designed, hundreds of little decisions were made. Those design decisions have a big impact on how you use analytics, but too many people forget to ask simple questions early enough to improve results down the road. By attending this session, you can gain a new perspective on how you should approach web development, analytics setup and collaborating with your team around data. Through explicit and relevant case histories, this session will outline and answer three critical questions:

  • Are goals and conversions easy to track? Learn how to set them up right
  • Is the performance of content easy to measure? Learn proper URL structure
  • Is your site listening for the topics your visitors want?
