You’ll discover high-value metrics for virtually every facet of marketing: promotional strategy, advertising, and distribution; customer perceptions; market share; competitors’ power; margins and pricing; products and portfolios; customer profitability; sales forces, channels, and more.
For every metric, the authors present real-world pros, cons, and tradeoffs — and help you understand what the numbers really mean. Last but not least, they show you how to build comprehensive models to support planning — and optimize every marketing decision you make.
Marketing Metrics, Third Edition will be invaluable to all marketing executives, practitioners, analysts, consultants, and advanced students interested in quantifying marketing performance.
