So you’ve got the hang of sending out Marketing Campaigns, delivering a sequence of activity designed to help your customers do what they want, and in doing so choose you over your competition. But what about campaign analysis? The fight for share of wallet has never been fiercer, driving forward a never-ending arms race of marketing sophistication.
