66 Most Important Metrics Every Marketer Must Measure Across Channels

A friend of mine is on a weight loss program, following a strict diet and exercise regime. He maintains a detailed chart of how much calories he consumes, how much he burns, the amount of sleep he is getting, the number of steps, his weight, and many such things. When asked, what is the need of so much data is, he says, “all of this data is actionable data that helps me stay on track and measure my effort and results.”

Same holds true for a Marketer. For all the efforts and investments you make towards your marketing strategy, you should know if all of it is effective or not. Actively tracking and measuring various metrics that showcase the effectiveness of your efforts is crucial. Unless you are certain that you are on the right track, how can you course-correct?
