Advertising is dependent on creativity, duh, but it is equally dependent on analytics.
You can’t know if an idea is worth anything without proof. Campaigns rely on numbers for the foundation. They are the evidence that a pitch is capable, deserving of those big advertising bills, and most importantly explains to a client that their investment guarantees a return. Analytics is an easy way to describe the systematic computational analysis of data or statistics. It covers all mediums of data that need to be sifted through in order to create an entirely sound campaign.
This includes various charts that help to track a business's progress, do a quick background check on the desired target audience, and, in short, fully explain why you’re doing whatever it is that you’re doing. Additionally, it’s important to utilize all of the visual ways a researcher interprets her data, thus giving your company multiple perspectives. Be smart. Value data. Amplify the success of your company with numbers 😉
