Numbers matter. You can’t simply walk into the boss’ office and ask for a raise nowadays. You need to show strong ROI for the work you do. So it is critical that you make sure that you keep track of all possible work performance metrics and maintain laser focus on how the company is benefiting from your work. Get numbers. Show that you are a profit center not a cost center. That will get the boss’ attention and give you a better chance of winning a raise or promotion.
