    About: Published November 2017. Contemporary marketing conventional wisdom brims with ruminations on the difficulty of customer acquisition in an age of audience fragmentation and social savviness.This research measures the effectiveness of it all.

    Which tactics are proving to be the most effective?
    What data types do marketers find most valuable for shaping customer acquisition strategies?
    What are the key challenges that impede acquisition efforts for marketing teams ?
    What characteristics distinguish acquisition tactics among marketers with faster growing customer bases?
    What should marketers be doing to improve their customer acquisition strategies and tactics?

    Key Findings:
    Marketers’ view of acquisition tactic effectiveness largely mirrors the most widely used tactics.
    When it comes to data, most marketers view all data types as very or at least somewhat important to acquisition efforts. Email addresses (96 percent consider very or somewhat important) and demographics (94 percent) are the most widely desired data types, but only slightly outrank a host of other data points.
    Marketers that are quickly growing their customer bases have several factors in common. They are willing to spend more on acquisition than slower growing marketers. They seem to make broader use of different tactics, rather than relying on the few top ones. And they take a somewhat different view of data in acquisition campaigns.
