Marx’s presentation “Marketing Metrics That Matter” will be held Nov. 7 from 1 to 2 p.m. in room N253 in the Upper North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center as one of 50 free education courses offered by SEMA.

Marx explains that any business can benefit from establishing benchmarks and goals, and by tracking the business’ progress towards those goals.

“Knowing how to interpret the data, understanding what it means and how to use this information to adjust your marketing spend and focus is critical to a business’ success,” says Marx.

Marx’s seminar will outline what metrics companies should be tracking, and why it is important to the success of their business. He will look at the areas of sales, marketing, public relations and social media metrics.
