Our Audit and Measurement Strategy Process
Business Objectives Workshop
Your analytics and measurement strategy needs to be aligned with your business and marketing objectives. This will ensure you are tracking and measuring what's important to your business and strategy. Our workshop will provide us with a good understanding of your business and provide clear plan of requirements to undertake a thorough audit process.
Once we have established a clear plan of requirements we audit and review all your data sources, platforms and strategies. Using our own in-house tools and frameworks we identify and document any gaps and improvements that can be made to your analytics, measurement and marketing strategies.
Report initial Findings
We report back our initial findings to keep your customers informed at every step of the process. We then evaluate our findings before putting forward recommendations for implementation.
Measurement Strategy Workshop
With both parties having a clear picture of the findings we work with the customer to assess and develop a clear roadmap on what needs to be measured and reported.
Deliver Audit Action Plan and Measurement Strategy
Armed with all audit information and feedback from the customer we can assess all implementation requirements. We will devise an audit action plan to implement data and analytics improvements and a measurement strategy that is aligned with your business and marketing objectives.
