The attribution challenges of high-value online purchases workshop

Attribution modelling is one of the biggest challenges in building an effective investment strategy. With growing changes across technology, government regulation and consumer privacy awareness, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to track a user. This problem is even more challenging if you sell high-value products or services, where a user may take upwards of six months to complete a purchase.


Most considered purchases of a sizeable value require multiple visits from a customer before a decision is made. It is very common that this decision is not made in isolation and may involve various stakeholders, such as a partner, which makes for a tracking nightmare.

In this workshop, you will learn how to overcome the challenges faced by companies selling high-valued purchases, how to shift towards a modelled world using centralised data, and why every business should have a data roadmap, as well as how to build yours.
