Garbage In, Garbage Out: How the Quality of Your Data Affects the Success of Your Digital Marketing

August 18, 2015 | Posted by Adam Graham

It has never been easier for marketers to compile massive amounts of data about their customers. Properly mined, this information can provide you with a wealth of new opportunities.

They must wade through emails that are sent daily, ads that block the page view until the visitor clicks on them, pop-ups that demand attention and banner ads that can sometimes take longer to load than the content the visitor wants to see.

Over time, however, they have evolved to become the foundation upon which all Internet-enabled processes are built.
