And that’s a wrap of the week ending Nov. 22, 2019
This week I’m eager about the way to measure what actually issues. I dig into new analysis that claims to disclose the “moment of next.” I discuss with Scott Monty about what Mr. Rogers can train us about enterprise. And I level out an article that will get to the guts of metrics that matter in demand and lead gen.
Hearken to the Weekly Wrap
Our theme this week is the qualities of amount (or the measured makeover). Let’s wrap it up.
- One deep thought (2:24): Measurement typically is outlined because the act of figuring out the incremental worth of one thing. For measurement to work, everybody should agree on what that worth is. However in advertising and marketing, getting settlement on the worth of something we measure (web page views, clicks, followers, subscribers, alternatives, leads, conversions, and even gross sales) has confirmed elusive. One advertising and marketing measurement could also be nugatory to me and invaluable to you.
Nonetheless, we grind out numbers month after month. Our obsession with measurement is pushed by the oft-repeated – and nearly universally misunderstood – enterprise axiom, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” I share my ideas on why we’ve got to cease measuring all the things simply because we will.

The article asks: “What if you could scientifically pinpoint the exact moment people’s attention is at its peak? What if you could identify the very instant that they’re ready and willing to see something new?” New analysis from Nielsen (sponsored by Taboola) bases the reply on a examine that used synthetic intelligence and digital actuality to disclose the second audiences are able to see one thing new. Let’s simply say you gained’t be shocked by the reply. Nevertheless it does increase one other attention-grabbing query: If we feed robots dangerous information, can we complain once they throw up dangerous intelligence?
