An Enigmatic but Essential Tool

Sylvain Davril takes us behind the scenes of this tool, demonstrating how a simple initial configuration can reveal the monthly evolution of your contact base, and much more.

Key to the Kingdom: Segmentation

Power lies in the ability to group data according to various criteria, whether related to the individuals themselves or to their interactions with your campaigns. This segmentation opens up a world of analytical possibilities, allowing you to dissect every aspect of your marketing strategy to maximize its effectiveness.

The Art of Personalizing Columns

Uniquely, the People Performance report offers the ability to add customized columns, a key feature for tracking transitions through the different phases of a prospect's lifecycle. Sylvain shares the illustrative example of adding columns for each status in the buying journey, providing unprecedented clarity on campaign performance.

Beyond New Creation Tracking

Initially designed for tracking new contact creations, the report proves to be a formidable tool for analyzing conversion and engagement. By enriching the report with opportunity data, you can directly measure the effectiveness of your marketing initiatives in generating business value.

Personalization and precision

Sylvain Davril's talk highlights the crucial importance of customizing the report to meet the unique needs of each organization. Whether by filtering contacts according to their origin, or analyzing the critical stages of a campaign, the People Performance report proves to be an extremely powerful, modular tool.
