Picture this: You just launched a new marketing campaign, and you’re feeling great. That eBook you wrote is beautifully designed and packed full of valuable insights. Your social army is locked and loaded with snackable, sharable content. And, your carefully segmented, personalized emails went out without a glitch. It’s time to break out the champaign and cheers to another successful launch.

But as you’re getting ready to make a toast, someone from the sales team pings you, asking “What’s the expected MQL numbers of the campaign? How will it help drive new revenue?” Silence. It’s not that you didn’t think about metrics at all, but the amount of data available is overwhelming. You just don’t know where to start—so you didn’t.

When it comes to analyzing content ROI, most marketers fall short.
