7 Marketing Report Examples & Templates

Marketing Report example

 

You know that marketing reporting is an essential part of your marketing efforts: it tells you whether your marketing campaigns are performing well or whether your marketing strategy has to be refined. But you also don't want to spend all your time analyzing your marketing channels' performance.

 

That's where a good reporting tool comes in.

 

What is a marketing report?

 

A marketing report takes data from your marketing channels, visualizes it, and lets you create a custom report that you can send to your team, your clients or your managers.

 

Importantly, it lets you quickly and easily stay on top of your marketing performance across all your marketing channels and tells you where your digital marketing efforts are a success and where they might need to be optimized. 

 

Why do you need a marketing report?

 

As a marketer, you want easy access to data on your key metrics. A digital marketing report gives you just that - all your marketing data, constantly tracked. 

 

You can include KPIs from all the top marketing channels, from Google Analytics to social media, email marketing to paid search, and more! There are so many metrics to choose from, selecting the rights ones can sometimes be tricky.

 

Luckily, automated marketing performance reports come with preset KPIs to get you started and if you decide you want to track different metrics you can do that: they're fully customizable. 

 

How often should you create a marketing report?

 

Usually, we recommend creating monthly reports. While creating daily or weekly marketing reports can be useful for you, the marketer, your clients may just get overwhelmed by the sheer number of reports and start ignoring them - not what you want. 

 

Monthly marketing reports allow you to gather enough data to see how changes have affected marketing results while ensuring that underperforming campaigns don't run for too long. And the best part, is that whether you decide to create a daily, weekly, or monthly report, with a reporting tool such as Dashthis, you only have to create your report once, and your data will be automatically be updated daily. 

 

How to present your clients' marketing data

 

Giving your clients a clear and concise marketing report is essential: it keeps them informed about the marketing efforts being undertaken and, importantly, tells them whether they're getting a good return on investment on their marketing spend. 

 

Here are some tips for creating a good marketing report:

 

  • Use visuals - charts and graphs are much better than a written paragraph of statistics. 
  • Include results upfront - this is ultimately what clients are interested in and this should be page one of your report. Also include notes and explanations for why things happened the way they did so that your clients have a full understanding of the marketing campaigns' performance.
  • Don't bury bad results - instead, include them upfront, explain what happened and what you're going to do about it. Clients will appreciate the honesty.
  • Keep it concise - if you have a lot of material to cover that's fine but try to keep it short and snappy
  • Use section headers - this makes it clear what you're talking about and makes your report easier to follow
