Call for Articles

Submission deadline: March 6th, 2017

The Editorial Board and Publishers of Applied Marketing Analytics are welcoming the submission of articles on the following subjects for the next issue of the journal.

• How can organizations become more effective in converting analytics into management actions? How can an organization's consumer data be put to best use by decision-makers in the organization?

• How can an organization's culture be best used to combine the talents of marketers and analysts?

• Too much counting and reporting, not enough analysis and findings: how can analytics be used to optimize marketing and not just measure it?

• How can we better measure the outcomes of video marketing, rather than just the number of people that have watched it? How can this be achieved in online video (eg Facebook, YouTube, etc.)?

• How can marketing be outsourced effectively? How are companies outsourcing marketing now?

• Will chat platforms create the next big wave of digital transformation and what business opportunities could this provide?

• How can analytics adapt to the rise of open data/big data, Hadoop and digital data where there is no standard architecture and model?

• How should analytics respond to the lack of people with skills required for the new world (a combination of IT, statistics, communications and consulting skills)?

• What will the analytics department look like in 2021?

• How can analytics integrate and use data from new sources (eg the Internet of Things) to improve the effectiveness of marketing?

• What are the right set of technologies to effectively analyze marketing effectiveness?
