Attention is at an ever increasing premium. For marketers to be effective, their content cannot be a digital diversion, but rather must be an integrated component of a larger engagement experience. Welcome to a new generation of native advertising – so targeted and relevant it may as well be speaking directly to you. Performance marketers have always known that to stand out they must blend in. In that spirit, native advertising has become more personalized than ever before.
Even for seasoned veterans, keeping up with it all can be a challenge, and it’s not always easy to see which marketing efforts are driving which customer acquisition events. Consider that many customers go through multiple touch points before the first conversion, and things can get even more complicated after that.
It’s no secret that we live in a world where every consumer is connected to multiple devices daily. In fact, the average household now has over seven active devices in use each day¹. With an increase in consumers’ multi-device activity, agencies must vigorously deploy communications strategies with multi-channel marketing in the foreground.

It’s always tempting to see silo marketing tactics and see them as discrete efforts working in isolation. Treating each channel as its own island generally requires less analysis and lends itself to simpler conclusions (A+B = C) but cross channel analysis isn’t optional anymore and ignores the fact that customers often take a multi-channel path to conversion.
