Powerful end-to-end marketing analytics with Zoho's modern BI & analytics platform

In today’s digital economy, a buyer goes through multiple touchpoints before making a final purchase. This indicates the presence of marketing across every possible channel that drives customers towards these touchpoints.

Understanding marketing activities across these channels in finer depth can measure the effectiveness and performance of campaigns through different channels, and help plan future activities across various channels. This is where the need for marketing analytics comes into play.

Definition of marketing analytics  

To put it simply, marketing analytics is the study and analysis of marketing-related data to understand prospect/buyer behaviour in order to plan, execute, and refine marketing activities with the sole intention of maximizing the return on investment (ROI).

Types of marketing data 

There are different types of marketing-related data. Each type corresponds to a marketing channel or medium. On that note, the top sources for marketing data are:

    • Websites
    • Search engine
    • Social media
    • Surveys
    • Email campaigns
    • Events

The first three fall under “inbound marketing” and the remaining are “outbound marketing.” Typically, the data from these diverse sources remain in siloes and aren’t analyzed in a holistic way. This is where marketing analytics through a good BI(Business Intelligence) and analytics platform becomes necessary. It gives you an edge over your competitors.

Voice of our customers

Zegal, a cloud-based legal tech company with a user base of 20,000+, wanted to make sense of their sales and marketing data scattered across various sources. They tried their luck first with spreadsheets only to discover later that this is time consuming and highly prone to human errors.

Oliver Boote, growth manager at Zegal, took some time to talk about how Zoho Analytics has helped Zegal gather and analyze data from multiple platforms.

 “Our data comes from various sources such as Zoho CRM, website engagement, email marketing, sales communications, and custom apps. The challenge was to combine them and create a pipeline funnel that shows the flow of leads and how many were converted to deals.    

What brought us to Zoho Analytics was the power to have Zoho CRM directly integrated. The data-blending feature helped us blend data from Google Ads, Zoho CRM, and other sources. 

 Before , a few reports took hours to create. With Zoho Analytics, we have automated everything and our work gets done faster than ever before. Weekly, I can confidently say, we save half a day’s time which would otherwise be spent gathering and modeling data.”

 “Zoho Analytics is an excellent tool for tracking and optimizing campaigns. The automated mailers let us send weekly reports to all our clients in an automated fashion. I would recommend it to any mid-size company that deals with data.”
