In the algorithmically-nourished business world of today, everything is tied to data. The moment you lose connection with data, your organization is reduced to a strategically incapacitated entity. Add to this, the challenge of satisfying the new breed of knowledgeable customers who are averse to giving you a second chance for any of your shortcomings. Hence, your marketing efforts will fetch impactful outcomes only when they are attuned to what your target audience desires. You need marketing analytics to mind-read customers, take commensurate actions, measure the efficacy of those actions, identify the gaps, and then reenter the ring with vigor after doing necessary rectifications.
