How to Achieve Data-Driven Marketing Success with Ikechi Okoronkwo

Episode #36

If you’re anything like me, you have a love/hate relationship with marketing. Marketing can be delightful, obnoxious or somewhere in-between, depending on content and context.

In this episode of Leaders of Analytics, you will learn from Ikechi Okoronkwo why data-driven marketers have a leg-up when it comes to designing and executing impactful campaigns that hit the right audiences and create delight.
