Data and Measurement and Performance: Baseball Anyone?

A greater use of data on prospective customers. Development of a proprietary database. Significant increase in uploading intelligence into a database. Emphasis on real-time reports.

Excerpted from a recent news article, this sounds like a business-as-usual description of a company executing a data-based digital marketing strategy. Except in this case, this is no usual company. The excerpts are taken from an article describing how a major league baseball team discovered data and used it to transform their performance this year. We are talking about none other than the Chicago Cubs whose management has ushered in a new era where data-driven performance is being used to overcome a 107-year World Series drought. If there is a World Series Game 7this year, it will fall on the first day of ad:tech. Baseball and data may be equally discussed at the conference. Marketers attending ad:tech use data in many forms and for many purposes: for optimizing a lead form, measuring LTV, comparing front-end conversions across media vendors, for lead scoring, to optimize click-to-call execution, and much more.
