2. Create a data analysis plan.
Does the thought of data analysis overwhelm you? If so, you are not alone. 62% of marketers feel overwhelmed by the amount of data that they have, showing that this is a common problem. One solution to this problem is to create a data analysis plan. As stated in A Structured Approach to Data Analysis, a data analysis plan can help you to organize your thoughts on how you will conduct your analysis.
