Growing marketing ROI by working across the whole business

Marketing efficiency isn't just about Adwords clicks and SEO optimisation. Often the biggest impact can come from understanding the customer journey and and working across the whole business to remove pain points, increase conversions, and ultimately improve marketing ROI. Susie will discuss some of the most critical customer feedback for any digital business - its conversion funnel. Using case studies, she will show how consumer behaviour trends can be used to prioritise improvements from merchandising and operations and drive ROI improvements and long term value for the business as a whole.
