Measuring campaign effectiveness
As a marketer, you'll understand the abundance of metrics and KPIs that are available to us. Sometimes it's hard to understand where to focus our efforts. Episerver Marketing Automation makes this easier, by providing you with highly actionable analytics. Two examples of Episerver Marketing Automation actionable insights are:
- A/B testing - Episerver Marketing Automation allows you to easily create control and challenger emails to test against each other. You can easily edit each mailing to give it an entirely different look and determine which version is the most successful for your chosen goal. For example, if you would like to compare two emails against each other to determine what gives you the best open rates, you may choose to compare a subject line with personalization tokens vs a generic subject line.
- Visual link analysis/attention analysis - The visual link analysis shows you, in one glance, how often each link withint a mailing has been clicked. The analysis data is displayed directly over a screenshot of the original mailing and helps you to detect patterns of behavior that you may otherwise be unaware of. With these insights you may decide to place higher value links where the email sees the most clicks.
Marketing Automation's attention analysis also provides insights into which areas of the email attract the most attention, which can help drive decisions such as logo, call to action or promo offer placement.
