7 essentials for an effective monthly marketing report

Even the most successful marketers face a challenge: they must ensure that their marketing team is taken seriously within their company.

For this, it is essential to publish a complete, thoughtful and quantitative monthly report on the impact of their team.

Marketers have always struggled to demonstrate their impact. Nevertheless, it is now very easy to collect the data you need and rely on the right reports to show how your marketing investments generate revenue for your business.

Key marketing reports 

At Hub Spot , the marketing team creates a monthly presentation of more than 200 reports to address every detail of their work. This initiative, certainly titanic, is not necessary for all companies.

However, it is important that all marketers provide a set of key reports to present the results of their inbound marketing strategy . These are the “results”, it is not a question of presenting what has been done, but what has been achieved.

Here are some of the key reports that Hub Spot uses to present its results.

1- Visits by source

This is your measurement from the top of the funnel. It tells you, month after month, how many people come to your site and how they arrive. This report highlights marketing channels that drive changes in overall traffic.

HubSpot customers can find this report in Sources . 

2 – Leads by source

This is the measure of your activity in the middle of the funnel. This report shows how many leads you generate and on which channels.

You can use this report to track month-to-month lead changes and implement strategies to improve these results. For example, if you generate a lot of traffic to your blog posts, but do not convert leads, it would be good to try other ways to improve conversions of the blog pages. Maybe you need better call-to-action (CTA) or more attractive offers. This report can help you identify the reason for the problem and understand how to solve it.
