Watch Guest Speaker, Ryan Skinner, Senior Analyst at Forrester, and Lyle Stevens, Mavrck Co-Founder and CEO, as they share the latest research and best practices on influencer marketing measurement


Webinar: Measurement Powers Content and Influencer Marketing Success

55% of marketers told Forrester in a recent survey that the best way they had to measure value from their content was views, shares, or likes. This kind of measurement is likely to be worse than none at all, as this engagement has no correlation to business or marketing value; in some instances, it is actually negative. Customer-obsessed marketers must understand what kinds of content appeals to their customers, and helps these customers discover, explore, and buy products. 

In this webinar, Forrester's leading analyst on content marketing, Ryan Skinner, and Mavrck's Cofounder and CEO, Lyle Stevens, will discuss: 

  • Why customer obsession demands understanding 
  • Measuring content's customer and media impact
  • Understanding influencers' value to customers
