Bizible is a well-known marketing attribution software. But is it the right choice for your business? We take an analytical look at Bizible and how it stacks up to Ruler Analytics.

Keep reading to find out more about how Ruler works and how it could help you achieve your attribution goals much more easily for a much better cost.

 

What is Bizible?

Aimed towards B2B marketers, Bizible is a marketing attribution software that allows marketers to get insight into the effectiveness of their campaigns.

Recently bought by Adobe’s Marketo, Bizible now sits within their suite of tools. Marketo is a marketing automation tool that allows marketers to plan, create and send content. With Bizible’s attribution arm, marketers can then track their customer journeys through their website and understand how their marketing initiatives impact sales and revenue.

Now that Bizible sits within Marketo’s, it now comes with an enterprise price tag. This closes attribution accessibility off for small and midsize businesses who can’t justify the hefty price that comes with implementing Marketo. Luckily, there are affordable Bizible alternatives, like our very own product, Ruler Analytics.

 

Enter Ruler Analytics: The #1 Alternative to Bizible

Ruler Analytics is a marketing attribution tool that allows you to integrate all your key tools and applications. Ruler supercharges the data in your CRM (or wherever you store your lead data) as well as the data pushed into Google Analytics.

We like to call this method of attribution, closed loop marketing. That’s because we’re literally closing the loop between sales and marketing.

Normally, marketing works like this.

A lead comes in from the website. They’re passed to sales and marketing doesn’t hear anymore about it.

Sales then work on the lead to convert them into revenue. They don’t have any data on the lead from marketing so are warming them up blind.

Ruler loops your website to your CRM and your marketing tools. And it allows you to change that narrative.

 

With Ruler, a lead comes in from the website. Ruler will have tracked all of their interactions with your website. When they convert, it will push all that marketing data over to your CRM. This gives both teams good insight on which channels and campaigns are driving more leads. And, it allows sales to understand a bit more about their pain points.

But it doesn’t stop there. Ruler continues to track them. And when sales converts them into a sale, Ruler extracts the revenue data from your CRM and fires it into your chosen marketing apps. That includes Google Analytics, ads dashboards and more.

You’ll get all the data you want, exactly where you need it most.

With Ruler Analytics, marketers can:

Ruler puts the data right where you need it, giving you the power to make well-informed decisions that will positively impact your marketing outputs.
