Part 4: They Ask You How You Want to Measure Your Potential Campaign 2>

It still baffles me to this day that many companies are willing to part with substantial amounts of marketing budget, to not bother about how their investment will be measured.

And it infuriates me further when agencies don’t even show the level of care, to be inquisitive enough to ask their client how they’d like it to be measured either.

If you don’t measure your campaign, how will you know it went successfully? Or was even worth the investment?

This is one of the first things an agency should ask you.

Whether you want to measure the return of investment, or impressions or engagement, without these questions being asked, the agency wouldn’t know how best to devise the campaign for you.

For example, if a campaign is to be measured by the return on investment, then the campaign brief will have to ensure Influencers preliminary focus on the call to action based messaging.

If it is purely brand awareness to be measured by impressions, then an Influencer can be briefed to be more creative with their messaging, so that their content remains as authentic as possible.

So if you are going to work with an agency, and hand over the big bucks, ensure you validate them by remembering this key question!
