Marketers today have more customer engagement data than ever to leverage for analysis and decision-making. They are increasingly able to show the C-Suite a holistic view of the engagement journey, from prospect to customer. However, there are still significant hurdles blocking many marketing teams from reporting on the whole picture.
Recently we surveyed SaaS marketing leaders in our 2018 Marketing Impact Report, and they revealed the 6 challenges currently hindering their teams from proving impact to the C-Suite.
The 6 hurdles blocking ability to prove impact today are:
- 68% of the marketing leaders say limited time/resources prevent their ability to accurately measure marketing impact
- 54% indicate data silos between systems and channels prevent a holistic view of marketing initiatives
- 51% say organizational challenges, such as lack of alignment between marketing and sales stand in the way of accurately proving marketing impact
- 48% indicate an inability to attribute leads to revenue is preventing an accurate picture of marketing’s impact
- 41% say disparate systems and reporting between sales and marketing limit ability to tie influence to closed deals
