Widgets to power up your marketing data? Yes, please! Learn more about what types of widgets you can add to your visual reports in our latest blog post.
How important is marketing data? Or any data? In monetary terms, it’s getting pretty big. Globally, the big data market was valued at more than $193 billion in 2019 and is set to rise to $420+ billion by 2027. Why is that?
Reasons are many, but the important one for us is the rise in data-driven decision-making. Companies are increasingly relying on data to guide their next steps in business, and marketing is no exception. What’s more, speed is becoming a dominating factor. It's important to learn data visualization techniques.
How long does it take to make a marketing decision? I’d argue that it would take as long as it takes to compile a report with ALL data channels that affect the decision-making process.
Whatagraph has an extensive library of reports that are made up of widgets. These widgets showcase data in various ways, but some are better than others. With our ever-growing client base, we’ve taken the liberty of looking at the most popular widgets used for reporting marketing data. Here’s our TOP 5 for the best data visualization:
Our most popular widgets, hands down. Seeing the visual representation of which posts performed best leaves a lasting impression on all clients, especially on a visual medium such as Instagram.
Performance is key. That’s a given among our users who incorporate goal widgets in many reports. Goal widgets are incredibly universal and immediately provide an overview of performance and budget spend over time.
This one is a bit of a surprise. The popularity of chart widgets is driven by the ability to see trends over time. Here we see how the reach interacts with new follower acquisition over time. Having this graph together with the media widget, you can really see which content works best!
No visual data storytelling would be complete without a funnel graph. So it’s no wonder it made it on this list. Here we see the breakdown of the new followers funnel the Instagram account goes through.
Some questions require more detailed answers. That’s what the table widget is for. Whether you’re presenting a monthly report or need a quick breakdown of your marketing actions, table widgets are the way to go.
These widgets are the top choice among our users when it comes to visual reports.
Would you use any of these widgets? Make an informed decision by trying them out!
