Website traffic continues to be the most common metric for measuring marketing performance in the UK, according to a recent survey of senior marketers, followed closely by direct sales and clickthrough rate.
Nearly 68% of UK senior marketers surveyed in September 2016 by Royal Mail Data Services and DataIQ said they used website traffic as a metric to measure marketing performance, a higher rate than for any other metric.
Just over 65% said they used direct sales as a metric to measure marketing performance, and a similar share (62%) examined clickthrough rates.
Measures like cost per acquisition and leads generated were utilized by less than half of respondents.
An August 2016 survey from Content Marketing Institute (CMI) came to a similar conclusion, finding that website traffic was the most-used metric to measure marketing success among UK content marketers. Seven in 10 respondents said they used website traffic to measure success, followed by sales, with 63% citing it as a yardstick.
