11 ways to track online to offline conversions (and vice versa)

Marketers can feel pressured, by blogs like this, into believing they are lagging in the race to master omnichannel attribution.

In the real world, what marketers need are discrete ways to track discrete actions. That's why I thought a roundup of some methods of tracking online to offline conversions (and back again) might be useful.

Please add your own two cents in the comments.

My circadian rhythms are still lost somewhere off the coast of California, but the rest of me is back in New York after a fantastic week in Australia, where I attended Digital Cream Sydney and visited with marketers around the city.

How can businesses track the customer journey in a multichannel world?

Smartphones can support impulsive purchasing – browsing a retailer’s website while waiting in a supermarket queue and clicking 'buy now', for instance.

Meanwhile, the widespread use of tablets as second screens presents the opportunity to make purchases, perhaps in response to advertisements, from the comfort of your sofa.

Digital window-shopping, or showrooming, is common among smartphone users and often leads consumers into physical stores to try on or test products, or to making online purchases from another device at another time.

How do you turn analytics data into additional revenue?

Advertising on the internet and mobile has increased by 17.5% to £3.04bn in the first half of 2013 according to the IAB, an increase of £607m compared to 2011.

Analytics has played a key role in this growth by helping marketers accurately measure return-on-investment (ROI) and justify reallocating traditional media budget to digital marketing. However, with the amount of data now available to digital marketers via analytics, they’re in danger of becoming data squirrels that hoard data but do nothing with it.

There aren’t enough analysts in the world or hours in the day to manually analyse all the available data, and crucially, turn it into actions which optimise revenue outcomes.

Three ways to approach advanced attribution

The marketing potential of Advanced Attribution is huge, and many companies struggle to devise a strategy that’s suitable for them.

Everyone is talking about it, yet marketers find themselves confused, stuck, overwhelmed by the many options, model types, and data sets.

Although adoption is gaining momentum, with brands allocating more resources and budget to attribution modeling, only 26% of companies use advanced attribution that goes beyond last-click according to an Econsultancy Quarterly Digital Intelligence Briefing.

This is truly alarming, considering that companies spend sums of up to and more than £5m annually to drive customer acquisition in online marketing alone. This is huge investment that is not necessarily ROI proven.

So, how can you use the platform to turn data into insight and action?

Here are three ways marketers can approach it, without becoming stuck.
