According to a new Marin Software study, conducted by Forrester Research, marketers are using online advertising to drive revenue outcomes, but face challenges without ample visibility into key performance metrics. The study suggests that advanced ad management programs can help advertisers scale ad programs, enable insight into data, offload operational headaches and improve program performance.
Key findings of the study show that advertisers value online advertising because it’s flexible, targetable and drives immediate revenue outcomes. 83% of respondents are already held accountable for revenue outcomes; 79% say that driving revenue is a primary objective for online initiatives. 74% look to technology to ameliorate problems.
