"Everyone is really excited to talk about attribution modeling, but I feel we have been playing this game of chicken for the last few years..."In this presentation, Justin Cutroni, Analytics Advocate at Google, talks about techniques on how to do attribution modeling in order to have a full understanding of Marketing campaigns ROI.
