Experimentation isn’t everyone’s idea of a party, but it’s a necessary part of the marketing process.

While some people are doing it, others are thinking about doing it, and the rest fall into the ‘can’t be bothered category’. That’s why Metadata’s Jason Widup, VP of Marketing, and Mark Huber, Head of Brand & Product Marketing, share their experimentation framework along with a few tips in this episode.

Hear about the value of experimentation, and if you’re into acronyms, a full breakdown of their I.C.E framework.

Find out:

  • What experimentation is and the part it plays in marketing
  • A breakdown of Metadata’s experimentation framework
  • Why marketers don’t experiment
