Back in 2017, when we launched our marketing agency, we found that marketers were spending three to four hours in the morning just collecting data on ad performance and creating reports–leaving no time for strategy.
We knew something had to change, which is why we built Adriel - a marketing dashboard that integrates with 650+ data sources and centralizes real-time data, insights, and teams on a single workspace.
With a marketing dashboard, we’ve seen thousands of brands and agencies cut down reporting time up to 60 hrs per week while ensuring 99.9% data accuracy.
But business intelligence tools usually come with a high learning curve and some even require coding and SQL skills to set up.
To save you the hassle and headache, we built Adriel to be completely code-free and user-friendly. We also created 9 marketing dashboard templates so you can start reporting right away without having to tinker around with codes and integrations. Just choose your data source from a drop-down menu and you’ll be good to go.
In this article, we’ll share:
✔ 9 marketing dashboard templates
✔ 4 marketing dashboard examples
✔ Cost breakdowns of the most popular 17 marketing analytics tools
✔ Steps to create a simple dashboard
✔ 10 key performance indicators for your dashboard
Whether you’re a marketing agency or a brand, we have a reporting template that fits your needs. Easily compare and contrast different templates in this section.
