Update your analytics stack to give you more data consistency, clearer analytics & better personalisation capabilities.
A robust data infrastructure is the cornerstone of your growth strategy. Running experiments requires you to have a granular understanding of channel and campaign performance. It also requires you to avoid drowning in KPIs and focus on your primary metric (in most cases revenue). You need to ask—and answer—the right questions, and define and implement the infrastructure you need to quickly and accurately track, measure, and report across functions. On top of this, you need correct customer data orchestration to drive growth and improve user experience. Today, the true challenge is getting the right data where it needs to go, so that you offer the perfect, tailored experience to customer no matter the channel they're interacting with.
There is a stock standard out-of-the-box combination of tools that most companies, regardless of industries, will use. This includes:
This is a great starting point and it is powerful. You can get it up quick & easy, start feeding it into some reporting tools, gather some insights and run some experiments. But in the hyper-personalisation era, this is the bare minimum. You need to make data simple, and you need it in one place—in your own database (instead of it sitting in many different tools). You need to be able to attribute every campaign you run precisely, but this stack above is notorious for its limitations for accurate attribution modelling. You need to have data clearly visible and accessible on-demand, for everyone. Whether that's automated reports pushed to individual teams for day-to-day management, or more specific reports that they can pull on a needs basis. No matter who it is, they can pull the same report and it delivers the same KPIs as a sole set of truth—no more consolidating across different sources of data. Finally, of course, the ultimate reward for the right set-up, you need to be able to create behavioural & personalised campaigns easily. To do all of this, you need the right analytics stack, starting with a customer data platform.
We'll do a complete audit of your analytics stack, looking at how you collect and use customer data and report across your business functions. Our audit will run through:
Possibly, if you have analytics experience and have the time, resources and ability to build-fail-learn your way to a perfect set-up. In most cases, you probably can't (and shouldn't) risk this, especially in larger organisations where the implications are potentially disastrous (e.g. data interruption). We have a lot of experience with the common tools (Google Analytics, Tag Manager), plus the more sophisticated tools (customer data platforms etc.) All of these tools have a lot of gotchas that we've painfully experienced and developed best-practices for. That experience can now be yours, with recommendations and set-ups tailored specifically to your needs.
Data & analytics is our secret sauce. Most agencies are super-specialised, whether in data-science, performance-marketing or a specific function (e.g. SEO, SEM). We're able to combine it all, we know what is required across analytics, marketing, product and broad strategy to achieve successful business growth.
We’re a small but mighty team of experts & entrepreneurs. We value quick-wins, experiments and testing—but we get the importance of operationalising and automating successful tests.
We want to help you grow sustainably—rather than looking at how to spend more money on ads, we look at what element of the funnel can have the biggest impact on your bottom line.
Growth relies on constant testing and looking for the next edge—it is a constantly evolving landscape. We aren’t here to promise the world, recommend a few strategies, then walk away.
We’re here to find the right path for your business and support your internal team.
We’re always proactive, whether you need an advisor, or an extra pair of hands in-house to manage projects.
As a team of multi-faceted experts, we bring the skill-sets of marketers, product managers, data scientists and developers to any challenge.
Whether you’re facing a customer acquisition, retention, monetisation, product development, data, analytics or engineering issue, we'll be able to pinpoint what's holding back growth and help you fix it.
