The main obstacle that marketing departments find when it comes to betting more on this type of advertising is ROI. Many of them use inadequate metrics to study the results of their investment, some of them still rely on the traditional system. If they had better advice when analyzing and evaluating their campaigns, half of these companies would bet stronger by this means.
Another fact that especially worries these companies is that the results are based on the impressions of an advertisement, or on the clicks made. It would be ideal to be able to measure the results of the campaign using other more specific variables, such as the number of leads achieved, interactions through social networks or even calls received by customers as a direct response to the campaign.
