Why Read This Report

Unified marketing impact analytics (UMIA) promises to apportion credit to all marketing activities. Marketers, under pressure to be more accountable for the financial returns of their efforts, embrace this technique, but they often find it difficult to persuade management to make what can be a significant upfront investment. This report helps B2C marketers build the business case for UMIA by benchmarking the ROI it provides and outlining the costs, benefits, and risks involved in ensuring a successful implementation. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We updated this edition with more recent data.
