CHALLENGES

ATTRIBUTION

HBK, like many B2B brands has a very complex customer journey. Historically, HBK relied heavily on Google Analytics data when it came to making budget decisions. However the Google Analytics last touch attribution model did not allow to get an understanding of the entire customer journey.

REPORTING

With multiple paid media sources and analytics views around the globe, easily pulling a management report becomes a challenge and much time was spent on creating reports manually.

“With Windsor.ai I measure my marketing performance. I can then take manual action or send the conversion data directly back into the advertising platforms where it can be used by algorithms to optimise outcomes. This has helped us to increase our marketing ROI by 35%.”
Mads Christensen, Digital Growth Marketing Manager, Hottinger Brüel & Kjær

SOLUTION

Instead of having multiple dashboards with performance from different sources all data is now in one place. All marketing touch-points get the credit they deserve thanks to an attribution model which connects CRM to analytics data and combines it with costs down to a keyword level.

Understanding CRM revenue contribution down to a keyword and ad level helped to increase the ROI by 35%.
