Providing ROI Continues to Vex Marketers (Infographic)

In survey after survey, from HubSpot’s State of Inbound report to the survey cited here from Millard Brown Digital, marketers say one of the perennial challenges comes down to knowing what works and whether it is worth it.

It is hard to prove ROI.

It’s a challenge for everyone, regardless of what channels are being discussed. And it can make it difficult for marketing departments to argue the need to invest in new channels when the executive suite can’t see the return in hard numbers.

So, what is the solution? For some companies and agencies, it means increasing the portion of their marketing budget involved in researching what is working.
