In this episode, I step out of Public Relations and interview an expert in marketing measurement; Russell McAthy.
Russell has been helping businesses attribute success (often revenue) to various lines of marketing for years. Without his insight into customer behavior, millions in marketing budgets are likely to have been misspent.
The term 'attribution' has come up a lot recently in PR recently so, I wanted to get back to basics. Russell and I cover what 'attribution' means, how PR fits into overall marketing evaluation and how you can talk about it to your stakeholders.
Get ready to learn.
