In this no-code course, you’ll learn about the role of a Marketing Analyst and how they leverage data to better understand their customers and help companies grow. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll learn how to answer the big questions like "did my campaign increase sales six months after launch?" You’ll also work with real-world data to perform essential marketing analysis, including building customer segments, market response models, calculating customer lifetime value (LTV), and much more.


  • Marketing Levers and Questions

  • Marketing Data Challenges
    • Marketing analytics is not for the faint of heart! Between numerous data sources and ever-increasing privacy legislation, marketing analysts must consider multiple factors in reporting. Add in measuring the indirect impact of marketing, and you’ll see why marketing analysts get extremely comfortable with imperfect data.
  • Marketing Campaign Analysis
    • Now that you know more about the marketing analytics landscape, let's talk about how you can use it to assess campaign performance. To do this, you’ll dive into text and sentiment analysis, audience segmentation, and predictive analytics. Marketers and executives rely on analytics to send the right message to the right people at the right time.
  • Marketing ROI
    • The big question every marketer asks is "did my marketing efforts make any money?" To answer that question you'll have to consider: seasonal patterns, business model, campaign goals, and ROI. Most importantly, you’ll be responsible for setting and measuring KPIs to evaluate marketing effectiveness.
