Data and creativity: A match made in marketing heaven, with Keith Povey


In this episode of Let's Talk Revenue Marketing, host Paul Sweeney is joined by Keith Povey, Director of Revenue Marketing at Panaseer, a cybersecurity automation and data analytics company, to discuss how data can be used as a springboard for creativity in marketing.

While data and creativity are often seen as at odds, Keith argues they go hand-in-hand. Data provides the foundation for creativity by revealing patterns and trends that inform the direction creative efforts should take. 

It acts as a jumping-off point to spark ideas and frame the challenge.

Keith points to Netflix and Amazon as leaders in the data-to-creative flywheel, constantly testing and learning from user data to recommend content and tailor experiences. For startups, provocative creativity is essential to get noticed by your target audience and connect emotionally when they can't compete on brand awareness with industry giants.

Rather than competitors, data and creativity must work in partnership – with data guiding creative direction and creativity bringing campaigns to life – to generate marketing that resonates emotionally yet remains accountable to results.
