Garbage in, garbage out

No matter how sparkly and new your MarTech might be, if you’re not utilizing the right data, you’re missing out on a world of actionable information. That’s practically throwing away money.

Statwax enables businesses to pinpoint useful data streams and ensure every cent of their marketing budget is making the biggest impact.

Data should help marketing provide your sales team with tools to drive revenue generation. Brian takes a unique approach — he starts every client’s digital transformation by talking with their top sales rep to get the inside scoop.

The key, he acknowledges, is bridging the gap, letting the data nerds handle the complicated stuff while still giving sales, marketing and the C-suite the exact info they need to be wildly successful.

“Bridge the gap between teams and build visibility in the data so that no one has to become data scientists, but can still easily see the narrative and understand how to take action on it.”

Leaders have more crucial things to focus on than pawing through pages of esoteric reports. They need to be able to cut directly to the razzle-dazzle.

Brian has spent more than six years perfecting his technique for building systems and strategies that harness data analytics and help organizations get the most bang for their marketing bucks.

What’s his most vital advice for folks in the sales and marketing trenches? Don’t be afraid of diving into data. You’re probably already sitting on a treasure trove that’s just waiting to increase your revenue.
