Reporting Excellence: Combining Analytics and Insights to Empower Clients in Meeting Their KPIs
In today's digital age, marketers have access to an overwhelming amount of data and tools that can provide valuable insights into their communications and marketing efforts for clients. However, amidst this abundance of information, it's crucial not to lose sight of the importance of quantitative insights in our reporting.
EMG understands the significance of combining analytics and experienced insights to deliver impactful results for our clients. We have a dedicated team that uses our proprietary media monitoring and reporting platforms to monitor, measure and report from.
Choosing the Right Data Set for Client Success
Each client has unique needs and objectives and, as marketers , it's vital to align our reporting with those goals. There is often a risk that teams focus too closely on the results individual press releases without considering the broader context of their clients' marketing efforts and the cumulative impact of media relations campaigns over time. To provide a more integrated view, we recommend the analysis of press release-metrics over time alongside other marketing activities. This allows us to understand the interplay and mutual influence of various channels.
Meaningful Metrics for Accurate Assessment
While analyzing data is essential, it is equally critical to ensure that the metrics used are measurable and meaningful for each specific client. While monitoring methodologies can be standardized for the most part, reporting needs are unique for each client, there is no “one size fits all”. Through meticulous analysis of each clients chosen metrics, considering reporting results over time, EMG can refine strategies and optimise subsequent media relations campaigns for our clients, ensuring that we can raise the bar on our strategy campaigns and results over time.
Knowing the Target Audience for Effective Analysis
In any form of reporting, understanding the target audience is paramount. For clients aiming to reach specific market segments, metrics such as media mentions in industry-specific publications, social media engagement within the target segment, or website visits from their desired audiences hold greater significance than generic website traffic evaluation. In most agencies, monitoring and reporting is still considered more of an administrative function, but its important that any monitoring and reporting team understand the strategy and audience profile behind each campaign.
