What is important in good reports?
Depending on the requirements of the respective stakeholders, reporting content can be quite diverse.
It is important for a report to focus on the most relevant dimensions and metrics. A report should not claim to be able to answer all conceivable questions. Good reports concentrate on a few very relevant questions with precisely defined KPIs and dimensions. Experience has shown that the integration of a comparison period, as well as a corresponding traffic light system, is helpful to be able to recognise changes as quickly as possible.
But most importantly, a report is a sufficient basis to achieve the business goals. However, analytical minds are required to regularly deal with the contents of the report, make deductions from it and act according to these deductions.
Which key figures should I look at regularly?
Unfortunately, there is no general answer to this question. The definition of the most relevant key figures naturally depends on your business model.
Do you primarily have non-recurring purchases, or is repurchase highly important in your business model?
Do you have a long decision-making funnel with many decision-makers and a product that needs explaining?
Or do your products meet an existing need in the short term?
Do you rely on a pure lower funnel mix of measures such as SEA, SEO and email marketing?
Or does your marketing mix consist of extensive wide-spread media in addition to the lower funnel marketing mix?
The selection of the right key figures is elementary to define corresponding optimisation fields. We are happy to support you in this.
