Building an in-house marketing analytics solution


Niall Oulton




In-house marketing is crucial for a business as it provides control, consistency, and cost efficiency. Being in charge of your marketing strategy allows for a better understanding of the brand, its values, and its customers, fostering the creation of tailored, compelling campaigns that resonate deeply with the target audience. Moreover, in-house teams can adapt swiftly to changing business conditions or market trends, maintaining brand consistency across all channels.

Event Description

In this webinar, we'll explore the benefits and drawbacks of agency versus in-house marketing. Agency partnerships offer diverse expertise, advanced tools, and an unbiased perspective but may include financial commitments and transparency issues. On the other hand, in-house marketing assures control over data, promotes domain knowledge, and may save costs, but it comes with challenges such as talent management and keeping up with marketing trends. Our discussion will help you weigh these factors to make an informed decision for your business. Additionally, we are excited to introduce a potential solution PyMC Marketing. This Bayesian, open-source software promotes transparency and customization in the marketing analytics realm, making it an ideal foundation for an in-house marketing measurement solution. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated by Bolt in their latest case study.
