Keynote A: To “Marketing Optimisation” and beyond!

Neil Mason, Managing Director, Applied Insights

Marketing Optimisation is a journey, it's not an event. You don't suddenly wake up one morning and find you're doing online marketing optimisation. So, I'm going to take a look at this journey and some of the key stages and milestones along the way. How do you move from a business that uses technology and data to merely report on what's happened in the past to one that uses those ingredients to drive the business forward? What else do you need? Does this journey ever end? What is “optimisation” anyway and is that really the goal?

So many questions and only 45 minutes to try and deliver some answers..

The Missing Metric: Linking Voice of Customer to Behaviours and Financial Results

Eric Head, Director of Business Development, ForeSee Results

Most web analytics leave a critical component out of their performance metrics – customer satisfaction – which plays a critical role in influencing site visitors' behaviours that drive positive financial outcomes from the online experience. Applying a proven scientific approach to measuring Voice of Customer helps you increase sales, loyalty, recommendations and website value through:

  • Capturing continuous feedback for strategic and operational use
  • Improving web effectiveness for maximum ROI
  • Benchmarking against leaders in online satisfaction

This approach is employed across a wide range of industries, including: retail, financial services, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing and government for companies such as Ask.com, Cadbury-Schweppes, Kellogg's, HarperCollins, the World Bank, 3M, Sears, Forbes.com, Starwood Hotels and Glaxo Smith Kline.

Keynote B: Analytics meets targeting meets crm

Julian Brewer, Head of Online Sales & Content Digital Banking, BARCLAYS BANK Plc

Arguably most analytics data gathered is meaningless garbage that sits on a server somewhere gathering techno dust but a revolution is underway.. does analytics measure the pulse or could it the heart beat itself? Can analytics become the storage system that informs, drives and differentiates customer experience?

What's new with Google Analytics

2:15 - 3:00 Delegates may choose to attend either session at this time.

Track A: Introduction to Optimisation
Getting campaign measurement and optimization on the right track

Danny Meadows-Klue, Founder and CEO, www.DigitalTrainingAcademy.com & www.DigitalStrategyConsulting.com

Internet advertising veteran Danny Meadows-Klue asks whether publishers explains that although publishers sell media space, advertisers are buying customers – and that's where the problems start.

  • What metrics matter in optimizing online ad campaigns?
  • Can a little optimization really have a massive effect?
  • What are the trends in online advertising effectiveness that are impacting optimization and performance?

Danny lifts the lid on web advertising and argues that optimizers are the unsung heroes of the marketing industry and that these are tricks almost every brand is missing.

Track B: Analytics in Action
Think globally, act locally – measuring the green revolution

Patricia Gildea, Online Manager, Ecotricity Ltd

How do we measure our fight against climate change, and our mission to change the way electricity is made in the UK? One tiny metric at a time... Whether increasing search rankings, visitors, pageviews, video views, numbers of e-newsletter subscriptions or decreasing our bounce rates – we measure each small step we take. Because each small step takes us closer to our vision of zero carbon electricity generation in the UK. However, the market and people's behaviour have profoundly shifted due to significant brown energy price rises in the past year, and increased media & public awareness of green issues. Delivering our message & mission has become ironically much harder and even more important – and it is challenging the way we measure our effectiveness.

Keynote C: Driving value through multi channel campaign optimisation and applied analytical insight

Martin Aylward, Head of Acquisition, EDF Energy

Drawing on his experience at both MORE TH>N and EDF Energy, Martin will show that, whilst it is important to get the basics of campaign optimisation and web analytics right, real competitive advantage can only be gained using more sophisticated techniques such as econometric modelling and customer lifetime value analysis.

Within the session, you will gain valuable insights into key questions such as:

  • How did EDF Energy optimise its integrated Q1 2008 brand campaign?
  • What were the results and key learnings from the campaign?
  • Is econometric modelling right for your business?
  • What are the key variables that need to be analysed within customer lifetime value?
  • How can you use customer lifetime value analysis to drive incremental value into your business?

9:00 - 9:45

Keynote D: eMetrics to Business Metrics

Rufus Evison, dunnhumby

Integration is the key to successful media mix optimisation and so to successful marketing; integration is also key to business innovation. As the world changes businesses are starting to recognise the digital channels as just that, additional channels for an integrated business. As this change takes place it creates a different set of issues for the leading edge companies. eMetrics now has a different set of objectives to those of even a few years ago, and the need to measure the business effects of the new channels is ever more important. An arrival at the web site can no longer be counted as a successful acquisition; conversely a mobile campaign can be considered as successful if it does nothing on line but does change in-store behaviour. dunnhumby are at the forefront of changing “test and learn” into “experience and innovation” across the whole of the retail space. The key to doing this successfully is measurement of the relevant facts and analysis of the true user behaviour, whether it is online, on mobile or on the shop floor. A successful campaign is one that helps a customer to buy what they want in the way that they want and then rewards them for having bought. Bringing the same customer centric focus from retail media into a digital environment is an ongoing challenge that produces a great deal of insight. Rufus Evison will be talking about how this challenge can be exploited, taking examples from the whole of the media space not just from the world of the web site. Whether we are talking about how a celebrity love child can sell yoghurt, or how a mobile presence can increase the effectiveness of a floor graphic will only become apparent during the talk.

In 30 minutes, Martyn will talk about how Omniture created the vision we now call marketing optimisation (with an 's'!), where we've done it already with our clients, and where it might go in the future.

He say PPC. I say SEO. And never the twain shall meet.

Mike Grehan, Global KDM Officer, Acronym Media

During this session Mike will talk about running paid and organic campaigns in harmony, and how to analyze the impact and ROI of both.

Track D: What's coming next?
Measuring Social Media

Marianina Chaplin Manning, Head of Web Analytics and Optimisation, Rightmove.co.uk
Lee Bryant, Managing Director, Headshift
Flemming Madsen, Managing Director, Onalytica

Marianina, Lee and Flemming will talk about how companies can use social tools and measure social media, mobile, buzz and influence.

The exponential growth in social media which far exceeds growth in website usage – and the corresponding challenges on how to measure and analyse user behaviour as it interacts in ever more complex ways – is a hugely interesting challenge for the web analytics practictioners.

There is a huge shift in web analytics from pure play websites to social media usage and mobile platform usage although still in it's infancy. We are all establishing standards and metrics in social media and mobile phone usage with our analysis, findings and metrics.

In Real Life

Ed Tranter, Group Publisher, Informa

A rags to riches story of one online publisher who discovered, adapted and implemented online marketing and measurement to make his digital business actually work! There has to be a folk song in there somewhere.
This session will be an overview of where we were as a business, utilising little or no measurement for our commercial sites, through the painful birth process of re-building our site from scratch. Then going through results that we have seen within the business after implementing a coherent digital marketing and measurement strategy.

A punters tale of the highs and lows of putting it into practice.
