In chapter one, you will gain a thorough understanding of the basics of marketing data and analytics, starting with how data is generated and stored. You will cover marketing channels, journeys, and understand how they are defined. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to restructure data to identify those journeys and assign credit to interactions via different attribution models.
In chapter two, you will dive deeper into two specific marketing channels: email and paid social marketing. You will cover the strategies behind each channel, typical use cases, and understand the components that make up each type of marketing. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to analyze performance across several metrics unique to each channel and understand how to use data to identify areas for improvement.
In chapter three, you will build on analytics learned in chapter two to better understand two other heavily-used channels; paid search and organic marketing. You’ll learn how each of these channels works, their similarities and differences, and the importance of web pages and digital strategy. Additionally, you’ll examine relationships between data variables and how to manipulate data (both qualitative and quantitative) to perform analyses. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to analyze performance across various metrics unique to each channel and understand how changes in one channel may impact another.
In chapter four, you will combine what you’ve learned in previous chapters to calculate and analyze LTV, CAC, and their ratio. You’ll learn how to build these metrics, such as average order size, age, and lifespan, from their component parts and examine changes in them. Returning to earlier work on paid marketing, you’ll analyze changes in CAC over time through a unioned data set, gaining exposure to connived data sets in Tableau. You’ll then wrap up the course by calculating LTV/CAC.
