Importance of Tracking Ads & How to Do It

For example, when marketers put out ads, spending lots and lots of money on campaigns they have previously carefully created and designed, they couldn’t do much so as to actually track their success. Sure, they could see changes in sales, but they had no idea how many people interacted with the ad, which is a valuable insight that can nowadays help marketers improve their campaigns.

So, while some things could have perhaps been better in the past, there are reasons why we wouldn’t go back to it. The lack of ad tracking options is one of those. At least for marketers, of course.
