Data science is a discipline that can be used to better understand your audience and how they respond to your marketing. By analyzing your audience, their behaviors, and your industry, data science helps you draw conclusions about why people take certain actions, like converting or making a purchase. It gives you insight into campaign performance, too, so you can see what’s worked in the past and predict what will work in the future.
Using data science, you can become a more confident, efficient marketer, as you tailor your messaging to resonate with your customers and get the results you’re after.
