Why do you have to monitor metrics?

Analytics gives a great opportunity to track metrics in order to work out which parts of your campaign actually work and which don’t. Monitoring this data is crucial for your marketing campaign because you build your whole marketing strategy on it. However, it can sometimes be rather difficult to make sense of all the data, especially if you have just launched your very first email marketing campaign. Octoboard can help you with visualising and presenting the data.
