The measurement game

Last month I wrote about some problems in “Measuring Marketing Performance“. This time another problem surfaced the web on TechMeme.

Again and again we hear about wrong “success stories” with misunderstood performance indicators within the sector or on media.
The Foursquare success story for McDonald’s even made the headlines for NewYork Times. In most cases when you hear a story, simply the numbers don’t add up. In this case foursquare check-ins were mistakenly used as foot traffic increase to all McDonalds stores.
Even though these might seem like a good way to impress the boss or client, there will always be “Radical Marketers” to debunk.
