Above all else, show the data.
Data is everywhere, and marketers are inundated with it from various sources: customer relationship management (CRM) tools, Google Analytics, and Google Search Console—to name a few.
As a Marketer, data helps identify and connect with new customers and lets you figure out what your current customers want. You can use data to predict user behavior and adjust your strategy accordingly.
But have you ever felt like your marketing or sales data is drowning you? You're not alone.
It can be easy to get lost in a sea of numbers when trying to figure out what's working and what's not.
This is where a favorite dashboard comes into play for marketers like you who want to visualize their metrics across different datasources in one place and analyze them instantaneously.
In this article, we'll address everything about Favorite Dashboard and how you can effectively pull metrics and report across different datasources.
A Favorite dashboard is one place where you can group all your metrics of different datasources that you want to measure expeditiously.
Let's take a look at the daily life of a Product marketer. It's obvious that Marketers and LinkedIn make the best pair. You run a Campaign on LinkedIn and measure it often, but your campaign limit continues beyond there. It will extend to Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms.
Wouldn't it be great if you could visualize all the metrics across different datasources effectively in a single holistic view by saving your time?
This way, you can save time by monitoring the metrics that matter most without going through each source individually.
We know how challenging it can be for marketers to present their data on Monday morning, you have to pull data from different sources, make sure it's all in one place, and then figure out how to present it in a way everyone can understand. It's like pulling teeth.
Taking a scenario of a Growth Manager, you want your team to follow up on the leads converted from the campaigns you ran on LinkedIn and Twitter. You'll need to measure CTR and Conversions from LinkedIn and Twitter Ads to monitor their performance.
Simultaneously, you'll be looking at Leads, Deals created, Deals won, and Deals lost in your Pipedrive (or whatever CRM you're using within your organization). Now again, you'll have to hop on to your CRM, filter the data for a specific time range, and then look into it.
The truth is, you need a way to make sense of all that information—and fast.
In this case, your favorite dashboard can help you with all the necessary metrics. At times you don't even have to present it through a meeting. Instead, all you have to do is set up the favorite dashboard with the metrics your manager wants so they can access it whenever they get time to look at them.
