This is the presentation given by Joe Pych, CEO of Bionic Advertising Systems at the Argyle Executive Forum - 2015 Leadership in Digital Marketing Forum held on December 3, 2015 at the Harvard Club in Boston, Massachusetts. Abstract: Running a marketing campaign is like running the Boston Marathon. If you ignore your pace, you’ll fail to achieve your performance goals. Unlike marathon runners, most marketers don’t monitor their pace while their campaigns are running. Sure, they monitor performance metrics. But they don’t take the next step and calculate the pace of these metrics relative to goals. As a result, they’re oblivious to their true marketing performance until it’s too late. It’s not until they reach the “finish line” of the campaign when they discover they failed to achieve their marketing objectives. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this session, you’ll learn how to calculate and monitor your pacing in real-time and how to avoid blind spots in your marketing performance measurement.
