Range, dwell time, engagement or conversion rate: these are only four examples of key performance indicators which marketers can use to monitor the success of their measures or the design of websites. Defining KPIs alone is of course not enough. If you define goals for your online marketing you should also be able to measure and analyse them. There are an infinite number of different tools available to marketers for this purpose; from free web tools to highly integrated marketing analysis tools which require the appropriate investment. Here we present a selection of tools which can be used by small and medium-sized companies – and we explain who they are suitable for and what you have to note when handling them.

One of the largest motors of the online advertising market is programmatic advertising. According to the media agency Zenith it can be expected that there will be an increase in net advertising sales from 39 billion US dollars in 2016 to 64 billion dollars in 2018.

With its Audience Marketing service Messe Frankfurt offers a solution to this. We spoke to Dennis Stritter, Digital Business Product Manager at Messe Frankfurt Digital Services about what Messe Frankfurt is doing in terms of Audience Marketing and how advertisers can profit from it.

It is now considered a fact that artificial intelligence (AI) will play an increasingly important role in service and marketing. But it is not yet quite clear just how quickly and to what extent this will happen. There are already countless more or less sophisticated approaches. The following five examples show what AI is already making possible in marketing and what may be yet to come.
We are using technologies and leaving our digital footprints in more and more areas of our lives. There are now numerous ways for brands to collect, analyse and design marketing activities based on these traces. How businesses take advantage of these huge amounts of data and what conclusions they draw from it for targeted and customized marketing campaigns will be critical to their success. Marketers can use artificial intelligence (AI) to master these challenges of using big data.
