What the hell are marketing metrics and why should you even care?!

In the simplest form - Marketing metrics are the results of your efforts and you should care because they tell you if your hard work is paying off or if you need to try a different approach.


Diving in a little deeper let’s explain a few different marketing metrics you could track and what they are telling you.

  1. Email Marketing

As always we start by taking action and for a fiver [£5] you can get access to my metrics tracker. It is a super simple Google Sheet that you just fill out every month and compare. It's not some fancy difficult spreadsheet full of formulas, I keep things simple and it's the exact one I use in my business and I share with my clients to use.


It has metrics for Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, Email, Twitter, and Facebook and even comes with a BONUS lead tracker.
