Advertising guru Sir Martin Sorrel talked about the ‘four grey swans’ affecting the global economy when he released WPPs quarterly figures last week.
Grey swans being known issues and black swans being unknown, unpredictable events. It was Rumsfeld-esque.
If we zoom into our own world there is a long list of things for marketers to be thinking about in a digital world which is changing more rapidly now than at any time in the last ten years.
But for me there is one big 'grey swan' - and that is how we measure value.
Targeting technologies have become more sophisticated over the years, but reaching the right consumers at the right time is still a major focus for advertisers and ad networks.
AT&T's ad network, AdWorks, which the company claims reaches some 181m unique users per month, is planning to roll out a new approach to this long-standing challenge in September.
A key trend highlighted in our recently published Real-Time Bidding Buyer’s Guide is that media buyers working with RTB for their display campaigns are gradually translating these capabilities to other channels, such as mobile, video and social.
Few topics in online advertising generate more confusion and debate than view-through attribution, and the debate isn’t likely to end anytime soon.
Marketers today are typically including it as part of the overall measuement of their ad campaigns, but still have questions about how to measure its validity, what percentage impact on consumers it is really having and how it is overlapping with the other marketing channels.
In Chango’s newest white paper, “View Through Attribution Exposed: What last touch isn’t telling you”, we’ve tried to put the confusion to rest. Properly used, we believe view-through is a valid metric that can help brands understand the true value of their display campaigns. Let’s start with the basics.
Today, we highlight a tip from Jeremy Post, Search Marketing Lead at Modcloth, who details how attribution is an important part of an integrated marketing strategy as it shows where your performance lies.
One of the holy grails for digital marketers is to be able to calculate the effectiveness of each stage of a customer journey and to optimise it to increase sales.
While some would have hoped that the often-cited quote attributed to Lord Leverhulme would become a relic of the past, unfortunately companies are still struggling to measure their customer journeys.
Attribution modelling, multi-channel funnels, customer journey mapping... it's all very hot at the moment.
As part of my preparation for a talk I'm giving this Wednesday I had a look at Econsultancy.com's own data for how different digital marketing channels contributed to conversions.
I was interested by what I found so wanted to share it here to see what others are learning.
One of the hottest topics from Digital Cream London 2012 last month was attribution.
Though not neccessarily the sexiest of subjects, the potential to use this to directly measure which marketing activities are driving conversions is huge.
As DC Storm's Seth Richardson outlined for us, the real value is the long term campaign and budget optimisation benefits.
The customer journey isn't linear. It involves multiple sessions across diverse media and influenced by multiple marketing channels. Understanding how well they work means understanding how they work together. Econsultancy's new study highlights the promise and challenge of marketing attribution - the practice and technology that help marketers understand how their media truly performs.
Our latest report, Marketing Attribution: Valuing the Customer Journey, was conducted in association with Google Analytics, and it outlines the value in looking beyond channel specific measurement.
TUI Travel has revealed that one of its brands increased online revenue by 30% month-on-month after tracking customers across both online and offline channels.
Over 100 global businesses sit within its Specialist and Activity Sector, which creates bespoke adventure holidays and educational tours.
Due to the nature of these trips, they often involve complex travel itineraries and prolonged purchasing decisions.
As such, customers frequently call the TUI’s travel consultants as well as researching details online.
At Digital Cream London we hosted the attribution management roundtable where we were joined by marketers from some great brands.
The brief was to share experiences and to discuss the issues surrounding attribution and path to conversion analysis.
The day highlighted some consistent themes that are key to many industries and in the interest of continued learning and development among both brand peers and experts, it seemed like a useful idea to document the hot topics and to begin to answer them.
So with ‘Chatham House Rules’ firmly in mind, here we go...
If there was a theme to Econsultancy's session at the Online Marketing Summit in San Diego, it may have been marketer versus machine.
We looked at recent research studies that explore some of the major trends in marketing and technology and often, success has more to do with people and priorities than the technologies they use.
