According to the Annual Marketing Survey by Alterian, companies will continue to invest heavily into online marketing in 2009, but less than half of marketers plan to use analytics to measure their campaigns.

Online direct marketing will also increase this year, with 62% of organizations planning an increase in that budget. Additionally, companies will look towards social networks, email, SEO and pay-per-click advertising. Yet, only 47% of those surveyed will use analytics to measure the success of this activity.

The data gathered around these types of consumer behaviors can be extremely valuable. It is this kind of information that can help you recognize your best customers and how they respond to your brand’s communications. Analysis of customer behavior can help refine your marketing campaign, increase customer loyalty and ultimately drive profits in today’s challenging economic situation.

So why aren’t more of you doing it?
