Competing on Web Analytics

Eric Peterson, Web Analytics Demystified

A few years ago companies created a competitive advantage simply by being online and having a presence in the digital realm.  Unfortunately, the first-mover advantage has largely evaporated in most sectors, forcing companies to look elsewhere for strategies to make better decisions and maximize the value of the online channel.  In 2007, in the best-selling Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning, Tom Davenport and Jeanne Harris described how great organizations like Harrah's, Netflix, Best Buy, and the Boston Red Sox used analytics to trump their rivals.  Now, in 2008, Eric T. Peterson of Web Analytics Demystified is extending Tom and Jeanne's work into the online channel with his groundbreaking presentation, Competing on Web Analytics.  Based on a combination of his 2005 JupiterResearch report Web Analytics: Framework for Using Data to Drive Business Success, his strategic consulting practice, and over a decade of work in the digital measurement industry, Mr. Peterson will outline how people, process, and technology should be leveraged to create a competitive advantage in the increasingly fragmented online world.

If you've ever struggled with your digital measurement efforts, either because you didn't trust the data, didn't understand the data, couldn't get the data you actually needed, or couldn't use the data you had been given, come see Competing on Web Analytics.  You'll learn how you can transform your current use of web analytics data by creating a digital measurement roadmap, you'll hear first-hand about the successes your peers and competitors are already reporting, and you'll gain valuable insights into how to deploy the best technology, hire the best people, and create the best business processes designed to improve your ability to compete in the online channel.

Optimization in the War Room - From Tactical to Strategic

Jennifer Veesenmeyer, Stratigent

It takes more than actionable metrics and continuous improvement processes to run a successful optimization program. In fact, research has found that an overemphasis on actionable metrics limits an organization to tactical, reactive mode. The most successful organizations are able to move optimization from the panic room to the war room. Learn how to establish an optimization command center that can gather intelligence, strategize and effectively execute multi-channel tactical plans from Jennifer Veesenmeyer, one of the eMetrics Marketing Optimization Summit highest rated speakers.

10 Ways to Create a Testing Culture

Justin Cutroni,
John Henson, Lunametrics

You know that testing matters (and that using the test data is crucial.) But your boss just doesn't get it, and neither does her boss. So how do you create a culture that understands testing is important? How do you get resources to change pages, add the tags and invest in testing systems and services? How do you wake up the rest of the organization to the power of your test data? Get down and dirty with some real world dos, dont’s and how-tos for getting approval; getting through your first website test; and convincing your team that continuous improvement beats block-updates every time?

D08 Wednesday, 4:20 - 5:10
And Not Or - It's a Boolean Operation AND a Marketing Strategy

Diane Gorine, Collette Vacations

Too often marketing teams are siloed into online or offline groups, each with different goals and reporting structures. Campaigns are not coordinated, and information from various customer touchpoints goes un-mined. When marketers from different disciplines put their heads together, it becomes clear that much more can be gained from web analytics than just the optimization of advertisements, web pages, conversions, etc. Diane reveals what's possible when a trained direct marketer is put in charge of the online team. She'll examine how Collette Vacations orchestrated and focused their marketing operations around cross-channel analytics. She'll show how analytics-generated insights are applied to traditional marketing activities, driving double-digit improvement in direct mail, print ad, and email campaigns. Diane will share how e-metrics enabled Collette to coordinate and transform their enterprise-wide marketing program without adding to departmental overhead, personnel, and budget.
