New York—There is a major disconnect between senior marketers’ expectations and actual results for ROI measurement, according to a new "Marketing Accountability" study by the Association of National Advertisers, Forrester Research and Marketing Management Analytics.
The study, which was based on a survey of 135 senior-level marketers, found that while 60% of respondents said measuring ROI is "very important" or "important," only about 20% reported being satisfied with their ability to do so.
Also, according to the report, 73% of respondents reported a lack of confidence in understanding the sales impact of a marketing campaign. Full results of the survey will be presented at the ANA’s Marketing Accountability Forum on July 20 in New York.
