Engagement Level – A New Metric of Success for Online Advertising
For marketers everywhere, showcasing the number of qualified leads they receive from a campaign isn’t enough anymore to prove success.

Is it important to showcase engagement with your (vendor) content or engagement with the topic overall (editorial and vendor)? What are your benchmarks for time spent? And how do you measure engagement with your branding and lead gen campaigns?
