Web marketers have thousands of tactics to choose from, almost all of which can be measured, benchmarked and tracked over time. However, we too often invest in work that doesn't line up to the metrics we care about. We're tasked with work that's supposed to hit numbers, yet lack the connection between that work and those goals. In this high-level presentation, Rand will explore several analogies that illuminate a path to measuring all the way through, from work to metrics to goals.

In 2004, I co-founded the SEO software company, Moz, where I served as CEO until 2014. In 2018, I left and founded SparkToro, a software and data company focused on helping people understand how and where to reach their target audiences. I'm also the author of Lost and Founder: A Painfully Honest Field Guide to the Startup World (2018) and a frequent keynote speaker on marketing and entrepreneurship topics around the world. In my spare time, I mostly like to hang out with my wife, Geraldine, and eat pasta.
