How Data and Analytics can Drive Growth for Mid-Market Enterprises


Data is critical to marketers as it helps identify, validate and prioritize new initiatives. While there is no shortage in data sources, figuring out how to leverage large volumes of data to identify high performing segments and channels is a challenge. Analytics is the key to accurate and real-time decisioning in the marketing industry. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science practices are making it possible to quickly and repeatedly evaluate large amounts of data to reveal unique identifiers, segmentations and patterns that increase conversions.

However, this requires the right resources and talent to implement. To better compete with industry leaders, small to mid-market companies must address their advanced analytics capabilities, which means evaluating and deciding whether to implement a data science practice or choose a partner. Each approach has its unique challenges and benefits. Key takeaways include:

  • Specific consumer behavioral insights that AI, machine learning and data science can reveal
  • A SWOT analysis of adding internal AI and data science capabilities vs partnering
  • Critical first steps for implementing data science capabilities
  • What to look for in an AI, machine learning or data analytics provider
  • Examples of how to leverage AI for a category of consumer data to drive analytics-based decisioning
