Mastering Marketing Analytics: Lessons Learned from Christina Inge’s Expertise

Mike interviews Christina Inge.

Let’s dive straight into some marketing magic! In a recent podcast episode, I enjoyed chatting with the brilliant Christina Inge about her groundbreaking book, “Marketing Metrics: Leverage Analytics and Data to Optimize Marketing Strategies.” Trust me, this conversation was pure gold.


Christina delved deep into the core principles of marketing analytics, emphasizing the importance of leveraging data to drive marketing success. She highlighted four key areas of customer data that every marketer needs to focus on: CRM data, customer acquisition, revenue generation, and customer communications.

First off, let’s talk CRM data. Christina emphasized that your CRM (Customer Relationship Management) data is your holy grail when understanding your customers. It’s your first source of truth, providing insights into customer acquisition, revenue generation, conversion rates, etc. Understanding and harnessing this data is essential for building lasting customer relationships.

Next up is customer acquisition. Christina stressed the importance of knowing where your customers are coming from and what channels drive conversions. Whether it’s social media, SEO, or advertising, understanding the customer journey is vital to optimizing your marketing efforts. Remember, it’s not just about the last touchpoint before conversion but the entire trip.

Now, let’s talk revenue generation. Christina urged marketers to take a long-range view of revenue data. You might not be raking in the big bucks right now, but understanding your most revenue-generating customers and segments is crucial for long-term success. Don’t just focus on short-term gains; think big picture.

Last but not least, customer communications. Christina stressed the importance of crafting messages that resonate with your audience. It’s not just about the number of clicks or engagements; it’s about the quality of the message. Understanding what resonates with your customers and delivering value is vital to building lasting relationships.

One of the most eye-opening insights from our conversation was the “7 hours, 11 touchpoints” rule. According to Google, it takes an average of seven hours of interaction across eleven touchpoints for a customer to truly engage with your brand. This highlights the importance of consistency and variety in your marketing efforts. Mix it up across different channels and provide value at every touchpoint.

Mike Fallat and Christina Inge talk about the book Engaging Heaven for Trade: Living the Principles of a Traded Life.

We also discussed some must-read books for marketers looking to improve their skills. Christina recommended classics like “Elements of Style” for honing writing skills and modern gems like Ann Handley’s “Content Rules” for mastering content marketing. These books are game-changers and should be on every marketer’s reading list.

Christina emphasized the importance of being active on LinkedIn in terms of social media. It’s not just about posting; it’s about engaging with your audience and providing value. LinkedIn is a goldmine for networking and sharing insights, so don’t sleep on it.

Overall, our conversation with Christina was nothing short of enlightening. Her insights into marketing analytics and data-driven strategies are invaluable for anyone looking to take their marketing game to the next level.
