Tech Crunch seeks to "demystify the concept
” in digital marketing, casting a sports analogy. The report says attribution in
business "is very similar to giving credit to a player for assisting another player in achieving an objective. It would be unfair to only recognize a player in terms of the number of baskets scored
without acknowledging who helped make the play possible." In fact, "one of the most common methods of attribution
in the digitalmarketing
industry is based on last click
, which means giving credit to the latest channel that the user clicked on before 'converting,' or making a purchase.
enables us to determine the true value of each marketing
channel. In this method, instead of giving 'credit' or 'attribution'
to only the latest channel that drove conversion, all the channels that came before it are also given due credit based on the different methods used."
