1. Multi-Channel Marketing Attribution Only Benefits B2C Companies

For years now, multi-channel marketing attribution was only associated with B2C firms and their campaigns aimed at retaining customers. Though B2B businesses have been slow to realize their true potential, almost all leading B2B companies today have incorporated multi-touch marketing attribution into their marketing models. And despite facing greater challenges when compared to B2C companies, B2B companies are placing no less importance on attribution. In fact, justifying marketing costs and calculating ROI was a major challenge faced by B2B business leaders globally.

2. Multi-Channel Marketing Attribution Models Are Static

It is a well-known fact that multi-channel attribution modeling can be complicated and confusing for those who do not possess the necessary skills and capabilities to understand its intricacies. Though there are a wide variety of models available today, it’s quite impossible to find one that is pre-aligned with your business objectives. Irrespective of how simple or demanding the process of establishing an attribution model is, businesses should continually refine their approaches and measure the shifts based on channel performance and brand affinity. Adopting a standardized approach or a static model may lock in incorrect assumptions about the customer journey resulting in inaccurate ROI findings.

Analyzing huge volumes of customer data generated from several touchpoints is quite a big challenge. Speak with an expert to learn how we can help you tackle this challenge.

3. Multi-Channel Marketing Attribution Models Are a Necessity

The benefits of deploying a multi-channel marketing model can be far-reaching due to its ability to help track user journeys and account for consumer activity in several ways. But the ability to analyze data, as well as translate them into tangible insights that closely relate to ROI, is where the real challenge lies.

For businesses, multi-touch marketing attribution is a moving target that often changes faster than the business cycle. While not every company will be inclined towards making such huge investments, having realized its benefits, many have moved towards that direction.
