Negative conversions - how service organisations bottom line benefit from Analytics

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Mia Jung, Partner & Senior Consultant, May & Barrow

In this session we introduce the concept of negative conversions to crack the code of how service and support organisations can benefit from Analytics. Lack of focus on data applied to online service channels and of internal processes manifesting in inefficient customer facing contact points is an unexploited opportunity for many private and public service organisations. Organisations' service and head count costs can benefit significantly using this approach of intelligent reversed analytics in their service strategy. Understanding this new focus will open up a web analytics to new business functions, translating it into business impact on the bottom line.

Leveraging web analytics data for customer segmentation

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Ole Bahlmann, Chief Analyst, SoundCloud Ltd.

In many organisations web analytics and customer relationship management are handled by separate teams and the data is poorly integrated. Therefore valuable information like which keyword the user searched for when he arrived by organic search or which ad he clicked is lost in the process. In order to remedy this problem I will demonstrate how to store this information and how to utilise it to expedite user engagement and improve conversion rates based on customer acquisition channels.

14.15 - 14.35 • Track 2

Moderator:
Petri Mertanen, CEO, NXC - OPEN RELIABLE

Speaker:
Leevi Kokko, Head of Audience Insight, Yle.fi

Judging the success of a large content-focused non-commercial site based on a web analytics tool alone can be hard, if not impossible. In the presentation I open up the core setup of how success is defined in Yle.fi context, how that ties back to the company-level big KPIs between TV, radio and the internet, and what are the analytics tools and concepts Yle.fi uses to understand how things are going.

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

During this session we will examine how the ubiquity of laptop videocams (and forward-facing mobile cams) has enabled a new paradigm for incorporating valuable user insight during the design process.

Let’s make web analytics more customer-centric!

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Jiri Brazda, Founder & Head of Customer Analytics, Optimics

Seasoned digital analysts and marketers agree that a number of substantial flaws prevail in current web analytics practice. Jirí believes the most important of them is that web analytics is too channel-centric. The customer is missing and with that we avoid dealing with inherently difficult concepts such as time and multiplicity. But how bad are our desicions? We don’t know what we don’t know. So let me show you a couple of practical examples for how looking at web data through a customer-centric view may yield very different results - and a very different focus for marketing.

Keynote: The Future Shopper: Keeping Pace With the Today's Customer

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Bryan Eisenberg, Professional Speaker, Best Selling Author, Consultant

Nobody argues about whether search, social, and mobile technologies have impacted customers' minds and buying behavior over the last five years. Today companies worry about keeping ahead of their competition; while the truly critical issue is keeping pace with their customers. Technological and social advances are forcing companies to embrace authenticity, improve customer experiences, or suffer the consequences. This session will show you how the convergence of communications, logistics and financial technology continue to evolve, as they always have, in order to reduce the friction in the customers' buying process. You will understand all the ways these technologies will change our professional and personal lives in the near future. If your company isn't prepared to handle this future, it could be after this session!

What did E-tailers learn from Retailers? Absolutely nothing!

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
John Ekman, Chief Conversionista, Conversionista

Retailing has evolved greatly over the last 20 years. Physical stores are finely tuned sales machines that will extract all they can out of the customer’s wallet. E-commerce sites, however, have managed to miss most of the collected learnings in retailing. We will bring out real world retail stories in merchandising, space and category management, and apply these practices to online retailing. We will challenge widely held assumptions and ask - How do you put the milk at the back of the online store? Will the most usable site sell the most? How do people really "navigate" in a store?

When is the audience planning to buy their tickets? Are there any differences between the Opera audience and Ballet audience?

Case study: How Skandiabanken improved user experience

Moderator:
Stéphane Hamel, Director, Strategic Services, Cardinal Path

Speaker:
Richard Whitehand, Senior Usability Specialist, Usability Partners

Usability testing has in the past been primarily associated with evaluating the quality of a finished web design. Today it can and should be seen more as a tool for supporting the rapid iterative development of user interfaces, though few organisations are fully utilizing usability testing in this way.
The big gains in effectiveness of a web site or web-based application are rarely achieved through superficial changes that can be made to the design late in development. It is crucial to keep the design 'on track' from a user experience perspective. The key is to quickly gather insights into customer interaction and make design decisions based on these - rather than having to make costly design corrections later.
Skandiabanken, during early design work with their new internetbank, utilized usability testing in this way and conducted rapid small scale usability testing on a monthly - in some cases weekly - basis. This case study presents how such testing was conducted and some of the key benefits- both to the development process and for the resulting web service.

Learning from the past and the present to predict the future

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Steve Jackson, Chief Analytics Officer, Kwantic

Analytics and testing have been key to understanding how to improve digital marketing campaigns for some time. For years we've been discussing how to improve the sales funnel on business websites and how to test incrementally to improve conversion rates. This presentation starts with a recap of best practices in this area, showing how to learn from histroical web analytics and testing data in order to achieve short term improvement (learning from the past and the present). It then goes on to discuss how the same methods can be used to predict the future.
 
If we can learn which campaigns (be they testing or traffic acquisition) work best across different lifecycles, it puts the campaign attribution problem to bed. You simply do what works when it works to the right set of people at the right time. This presentation gives some insight into the way we can combine data from the past and present to predict what to do in the future. The takeaway might be that doing this for yourself is not as difficult as it sounds.

Google Analytics: What it can and cannot do

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Brian Clifton, Author & CEO, Advanced Web Metrics

Google revolutionized the web metrics industry in 2005 when it released its analytics tool for free. Many derided the decision ("no such thing as free lunch"), some suspected ulterior motives and many dumbed down the product as only suitable for small sites. Six years on and some of the most prominent brands and largest web sites now use Google Analytics. Of course, no web analytics tool can do everything, so Brian (former Head of Web Analytics, Google EMEA) debunks the myths and explains exactly what Google Analytics can and cannot do.

Building perfect Analytics dashboards in Google Docs & Excel

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Mikael Thuneberg, Founder, AutomateAnalytics.com

The Google Analytics Data Export API frees you to do all kinds of analyses not available in the Analytics web interface. Perhaps the most convenient platform for taking advantage of the API is a spreadsheet app, as it offers a great deal of flexibility and customizability, and because most people are already familiar with it. Mikael's presentation will go through the few simple steps of creating your own dynamic dashboards in Google Docs or Excel.

Integrating web analytics and optimisation into the business development

Moderator:
Jim Sterne, Founder, eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit

Speaker:
Theodor Mavrodis, Web Analyst & Conversion Specialist, Web guide partner

Companies that start with AB testing soon realize that, after picking the low hanging fruit, their optimization comes to a halt. To get to the next level you have to integrate it into the business development process. I will describe our journey from adhoc optimization to the integration of web analytics analysis and testing into our business development process. How did we think then? How do we think now? How did we do it? What are the results? What have we learned?

Capturing the offline phone conversion

Moderator:
Stéphane Hamel, Director, Strategic Services, Cardinal Path

Speaker:
Carl Holmquist, Founder & CEO, Freespee

Millions of phone calls are made from online advertising every day. Still, most advertisers do not know where the calls come from, and online publishers and ad networks are not given the credit for the offline traffic they drive. The presentation uses case studies and insights from the leading call tracking and call performance marketing solution provider Freespee to open up the new world for opportunities for the online marketing ecosystem. Freespee's cloud communications technology is trusted by a fast growing number of 25000 advertisers across Northern Europe and used by companies such as Schibsted, Sanoma, Eniro, Starcom and European Directories.
