From mobile apps to desktop browsers and platforms like Meta and TikTok, attribution can get a bit messy when factoring in all of the places your consumers can come from. 💆
To avoid a massive attribution headache, try using:
👉 Both click and view-through attribution: Understand the holistic impact of ads on your consumers for faster data analysis, stable cost per acquisition (CPA), and improved campaign scalability.
👉 Longer attribution windows: Achieve a better understanding of ad performance and a more efficient learning phase. Experiment and look for the time frame that works best for your brand to acquire the most impactful data.
👉 Continuous learning and experimentation: Validate your attribution results with consumer feedback or post-purchase surveys.
Numbers like that prove that brands can’t rely solely on the same old attribution methods anymore.
💡 Your attribution needs to evolve with your channels.
Understanding attribution is essential to an effective and contemporary marketing strategy that improves your overall campaign performance.
