Format: Hardcover
Note: The review that follows is of the Second Edition (2010), a sequel to Marketing Metrics: 50+ Metrics Every Executive Should Master (2006).

Data-based marketing is both an art and a science but many (if not most) marketers do not always include metrics - or at least the metrics needed -- among the data on which they depend when making and then evaluating strategic decisions to create or increase demand of what they offer.

What Paul Farris, Neil Bendle, Phillip Pfeifer, and David Reibstein offer in this book is what they characterize as "a comprehensive, practical reference on the metrics used to judge marketing programs and quantify their results." This is a research-driven rather than theory-driven book, as the footnotes, "References and Suggested Further Reading" sections, and Bibliography clearly indicate. Readers will also appreciate how skillfully the co-authors use "Key concepts covered in this chapter" sections (Chapters 2-10) and dozens of "Figures" and Tables" throughout the book to complement, highlight, or even consolidate key points within the narrative.

Opinions vary to the origin of the admonition that "you can't manage what you cannot measure" but no one questions the importance of obtaining accurate, relevant, and sufficient data to serve as a foundation to the decision-making process, no matter who is involved, whatever the nature and extent of the given issues and objectives may be. Nonetheless, as John A. Quelch observes, "marketing is one of the least understood, least measurable functions at many companies...Marketing executives, for their part, often fail to develop the quantitative, analytical skills needed to manage productivity.

This is a eBook but the tables do not have a nice feel to it. This is a major let down. When you buy £13 worth of an eBook a zoom in - zoom out feature (may be this needs to be built in Kindle itself) is a bare minimum. But what lets this book down is the quality of its table, they appear to be a cut copy paste job! Not high quality at all and most of the time you will be holding your electronic device really close to your eyes to understand the various tables.

The written word is good, but graphical representation throughout the book is appalling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every marketing professional should buy this book 5 Oct. 2010
By V. K. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a career marketing executive with 13 years of experience currently working as a Director of Marketing and Analytics for a VC-backed firm. This book is invaluable to me at our firm as we take a deep dive into our own data and attempt to build custom metrics and KPIs. This book provides insightful frameworks into how intelligent metrics are mathematically constructed, along with discussing their assumptions and limitations.

The writing is succinct, and the organization of this book appeals to one's intelligence and time. You don't have to read this book cover to cover! The table of contents in such a wonderful and simple fashion breaks down the book into the major subcategories of Marketing, such as Product and Portfolio Development. Each chapter first outlines and summaries major relevant metrics, and then discusses each in detail complete with theorems, assumptions, considerations, and weaknesses.

Every intelligent, ambitious, and professional executive must own this book. It gives you a rare balance of academic and practical rigor. If you don't see metrics that can help your business, then you can borrow its notions into how some of the most influential KPIs are constructed and then use those frameworks to exploit your own intelligence issues.

This is a great reference book, and it has a special place on my bookshelf at work. You don't have to be an academic to understand this book. If you are patient with this book, you will see what a gem this is. 5 stars.

Disclosure: I am neither a student, nor do I know any of the authors of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good compendium of marketing metrics 22 Jan. 2011
By Tezza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is both an overview and a detailed discussion of every marketing metric you'd ever want to know.

I had studied some of the concepts in a business school course and throughout reading various literature, however it's nice to have the information all in one spot like a handy reference.

Unfortunately the metrics don't apply well to new media - for instance there is only one metric for social networking.

Probably a good follow on to this book would be the impact on smart phone apps, social networking, etc. etc. and relevant marking metrics.

I gave it four stars because I think it's an excellent compendium but I wouldn't say the earth moved for me as a result of reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide to measuring marketing results 4 Feb. 2012
By Marian B. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You can't manage it if you can't measure it--and this authoritative book details metrics for every aspect of marketing, from profit margins and product portfolios to pricing, promotion, and the Web. Although I was a fan of the 1st edition, the 2nd edition is even more useful because it covers standard metrics for online communications. Especially strong: The chapter on pricing strategy, which explains a variety of calculations and measures for making good pricing decisions. In short, this book is a must-have reference for every marketing manager.
