5 Marketing Analytics Jobs for Data-Driven Innovators

Posted by:
September 15, 2021

Today, we have seen such dramatic increases in the sheer volume of data produced by individuals and organizations that news reports describe the phenomenon as a “data explosion.”

Our data explosion has created a new set of challenges. For many organizations, it’s like having the secret to success spelled out in front of you — but in a foreign language that no one at your company speaks fluently.

In other words, data is meaningless unless you can identify what’s important, find patterns and turn analysis into concrete suggestions for how to react and adapt. This is especially true in the field of marketing analytics where companies need to understand what their target audience needs and how their performance stacks up against the competition.
