10 Multi-Touch Attribution Software Tools To Figure Out What Works

Marketing attribution is hard to figure out, thanks to the average buying journey becoming more scattered and complex. If you don’t understand your buyer's journey, you won’t be able to empathize with the prospects.

What’s even more difficult is not knowing which attribution platform to invest in to explore your customers’ buying journeys and engage them better on each step. Hopefully, this article will provide you with the top 10 multi-touch attribution software to help you optimize your efforts better and acquire more customers.

The marketing attribution challenge

Perfect attribution in marketing simply doesn't exist. The typical buyer journey isn't straightforward enough. The best we can do is pick an attribution model, use the data we have, and combine it with other indicators (even gut feeling).

In most cases, using a multi-touch model is going to yield the best results.

First touch & last touch are both too narrow, often discrediting several vital touchpoints. Self-reported attribution is often simply wrong, or at least not detailed enough (e.g. ‘a Google search').

Multi-touch at least allows you to give credit for each influential touchpoint in the buyer journey.

Let's get into the software tools you can use to get multi-touch attribution data.
