data analytics analytical growth goals opportunities performance improvement customer value model building optimizing productivityBy now, most companies recognize that they have opportunities to use data and analytics to raise productivity, improve decision making, and gain competitive advantage. Analytics is the core ingredient for measurement and data models.

Analytics and data modeling provide a scientific approach to optimizing where you invest to meet ever-changing customer needs and ultimately achieve organization-wide, customer-centricity. Specifically, Marketing-related analytics and models allow you ascertain opportunities for growth, increase effectiveness and performance improvement. Achieving  growth goals, creating customer value, and improving performance isn’t as easy as plugging a data set into a tool. Data requires a lot of refinement before there is any visible result. It relies heavily on access to valid data sources (both internal and external), and advanced levels of analytical and model building skills.


Take a Short Trip from Analytics to Models

Analytics and analytical skills enable you to understand:

  1. How individual business decisions are interrelated
  2. The potential impact of a decision on company value creation and the customer experience
  3. The revenue and profitability impact of decisions related to customer (acquire, retain, grow), product (which/where, pricing, and adoption), and market (segments, accessibility and opportunity).

In today’s data-driven environment every marketer needs to be able to leverage several primary models such as:

• Predisposition to purchase
• Customer Risk and Value
Attribution Models and Marketing Mix
• Campaign Lift
Persona and Journey Models
• Touch Point Allocation

“I knew from the very first conversation with Laura that we needed to work with VisionEdge Marketing. While leading a global project to define and track marketing’s influence on revenue, we determined we needed to create a data model. We were working to a firm deadline, so after evaluating our internal options, I reached out to Laura. She and her team are well-regarded for both marketing analytics and accountability and their experience with Zebra was a plus. With Laura’s help we made tremendous progress in a matter of weeks. She developed the initial framework for the model…she helped us refine and vet the model… Laura’s expertise, knowledge, well-defined process and collaborative approach, all made a major difference in being able to accomplish to create the model and deliver it on-time.” Michele Marvin, Director of Demand Generation for NA and LATM – Zebra Technologies
