Special Issue "Marketing Metrics and Marketing Performance"
A special issue of Administrative Sciences (ISSN 2076-3387).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018)
“Marketing Metrics” is generally shorthand for measuring the impact marketing has on financial consequences—both short-term and long-term. This Special Issue is to explore new areas or gain new insights into the productivity of marketing activities as measured by the impact on the financials of the firm. This could include how we spend to affect mind-metrics such as awareness, consideration, preference, and satisfaction and their relationship to financial outcomes. Marketing ROI is difficult to measure, yet it provides a metric that could be used to compare with other expenditures within the organization. How do we capture it for marketing spending? Is it even the right metric to be using?
The Special Issue should also cover branding issues as they relate to spending and firm value. The Special Issue will be research approach agnostic—empirical, theoretical, analytic modeling, and methodological advances are all appropriate. Cross-functional approaches are encouraged, particularly blending marketing and finance or accounting and finance. The issue encourages research supportive of possibly altering current FASB regulations. Ideally, work will reflect how marketing metrics can be applied in real settings. Social media and big data metrics and connection to financial performance is also encouraged.
