Why advertising metrics matter

From upper-funnel metrics, such as impressions and clicks, to sales, subscriptions and gaining new customers, robust measurement helps you understand what your advertising accomplishes. Nearly 1 in 5 marketers struggle to measure the effectiveness of their marketing efforts,1 but understanding the insights and reporting available to you can help you measure your ad performance and make the best choices for optimising your campaigns.
