We understand the different roles users play when interacting with our system so we try to match the most appropriate reports for each unique role. And now we’re going a few steps further. With our latest release, the Impact Radius reporting module allows users to better customize the reporting function to their specific needs.

One of the biggest draw towards digital for marketers is the ability to track and generate performance data. Everyone needs data, and today even the most amateur of digital marketers have access to a combination of databases, software interfaces and analytic tools to manage campaigns, study web analytics, track media partner conversions and create reports about social influence. The trend towards data has however made data collection and reporting more complex: suddenly, we are all using a myriad of software interfaces, reporting tools and good old fashioned spreadsheets to manage, measure, track and optimize our online marketing campaigns. The challenge becomes the ability to aggregate this data and extract it in meaningful ways for all stakeholders across the organization.
At the Web 2.0 Summit, eBay CEO and president John Donahoe said “[The] boundary between online and offline is blurring. Consumers are embracing this, and retailers need help.” Clearly, the buzz around the importance of integrating online and offline deserves its place in conversations.

To achieve true integration of online and offline, we need to think beyond simply including URLs in TV and radio ads, or placing a QR code in your print ads.
In the first quarter of 2011, more than 1.11 trillion display ads were delivered to US Internet users. With recent advancements in remarketing and behavioral targeting technology, it’s clear that display advertising is making a huge comeback. And according to Forrester’s recent US Interactive Marketing Forecast, by 2016 advertisers will spend as much on interactive marketing as they do on television advertising today. Display ads in particular will grow from $10.9 billion this year to $27.6 billion in 2016!
There are two consistent trends in mobile marketing. The first is that consumers are adopting mobile and tablets faster than marketers can adapt to. The second is that marketers announce every year that THIS is the year of mobile.
So why is all the buzz surrounding mobile based on projections rather than execution? Perhaps it boils down to the reality that this exciting and potentially profitable channel is filled with some pretty complex technical, strategic, and creative challenges.
