5 non-marketing metrics every marketing leader should be tracking (but probably aren’t)

Marketing leaders share the five performance indicators outside marketing they keep their eyes on

Whether your preference is to examine pipeline or funnel influence, website traffic or brand health or marketing-qualified leads or accounts engaged, as a marketing leader you’ll know which performance indicators give you the best view of whether your initiatives and campaigns are delivering.

When your head is down trying to drive results it’s sometimes hard to take the blinkers off and look at what is happening elsewhere in the business.
