  8. 8. Changing Lanes: Solving the Decade-Old Problem of Cross-Channel Ad Attribution May 16th, 2013 - 12:05 am By AdExchanger ―Data Driven Thinking‖ is written by members of the media community and contains fresh ideas on the digital revolution in media. Today‘s column is written by Kim Reed Perell, CEO of Adconion Direct. Recent debate surrounding deficiencies in today‘s media attribution models is a positive indication that the industry is finally ready to move forward from its antiquated, decades-old measurement system. In theory and in concept, most agree that our rapidly changing media landscape demands a more dynamic, comprehensive value system. Yet we are still too far from a ―perfect world‖ to realistically apply fractional attribution models across all types of media. Ad attribution is not a new concept; for years, industry leaders have analyzed exactly what it means and how the concept can reach its potential. But now that the industry is ready to take this discussion to the next level, I‘d like to address the real roadblocks preventing us from switching to a new system, discuss why these inefficiencies still exist in 2013, and propose a realistic solution to start improving them. For most companies and digital marketers today, fractional attribution across multiple touch points and channels – or the idea of distinguishing the impact that each touch point plays in the success of an advertising campaign – is simply an academic dream. In reality, advertisers are still struggling to even recognize view-based attribution credit, which six years ago became the next advancement above last-click attribution. This lack of progress is not advertisers‘ fault; on the contrary, the reluctance to adopt a new attribution model easy to understand. Common sense tells us that any media touch point has influence, good or bad, on a potential consumer and their purchase decision. However, in the absence of clear impact – a way of determining exactly how much influence each touch point has toward a purchase – it‘s easier for brands to ignore that influence, in terms of attribution, and stick with the status quo of a last-view or last-click model. Advertisers still have every right to be skeptical. If the industry can‘t convince them to attribute value toward a single banner in a single channel, from consumers viewing or clicking that one particular ad, convincing them to buy into fractional attribution across all touch points will be very challenging. But this is where we sit today. We know intuitively as marketers that multiple media touch points should all be connected and attributed to the performance of an ad. But nobody has put together a compelling enough case to convince advertisers or their agencies, at least in any significant scale, of the right model. The industry has yet to make fractional attribution the default; last-click attribution continues to hold that title. There are two primary hurdles to convincing executives, decision makers and brands of the need, value, and potential of fractional attribution: 1) the need to centralize disparate distribution channels and media buying onto a unified platform; and 2) a way to effectively track and report the impact all touch points have on a campaign using common industry metrics. Recently, Harvard Business Review published a thought-provoking article titled ―Advertising 2.0.‖ In it, the authors describe current digital marketing efforts as occurring in ―swim lanes,‖ with media across different platforms running parallel to each other but never crossing over into neighboring lanes. Yet in today‘s market, this ―swim lanes‖ metaphor exists not because media buyers are working right next to each other without communicating or strategizing – or even because the technology isn‘t there to merge them together scientifically – but because the efforts aren‘t even happening in the same pool. Many advertisers still work with specialists or platform-specific providers, a hangover from 2010 and LUMAscapes of old. The result: the piecemeal aggregation of distributed media, execution partners, ad technology systems, agencies, and media channels – on which most advertisers rely for a comprehensive media plan – restricts even the most forward-thinking agencies. How are we to expect media planners to swim in the same pool, much less in parallel lanes, when media is still segregated and disjointed with respect to display, mobile, social media, video, and email? Ruling out and ignoring the immeasurable touch points (beyond the digital landscape, what about the impact of offline branding like billboards?) is incomplete at best. I think most of us know it. The challenge is getting us collectively past this way of thinking, because today we‘re far from where we can be as industry. Different media-buying partners across different platforms, using different reporting and tracking systems, equate to a challenging if not impossible cross-channel dream. However, unifying digital spending is a way for most advertisers to begin aligning their attribution capabilities. Simply put, if your media campaigns aren‘t served, managed and distributed from a single platform for a single user, you can‘t know the impact of one touch point to another for any given user and therefore can‘t make meaningful attribution models. What are some other realities and solutions? More importantly, what are meaningful solutions that advertisers can use today? First, companies should be weaning off the last-click model within a single channel, a channel where spend and ad serving is unified to begin with. Next, companies should take small steps toward full-funnel attribution even within that single channel. Start with a smaller marketing effort or campaign that doesn‘t have to disrupt the current business model. What were all the possible touch points that simply led a new user to land on your site in the first place? Look at these new users and how they use direct navigation, in addition to what they click, and start to create attributes Babelfish Articles Sept 2013 - Nov 2013 21-11-13 Page 8
  9. 9. around them. This is one example of how to gain transparency into user-action impact to prove that viewing an ad has an effect. This will lay the groundwork for larger view-based attribution, which will then pave the way for fractional- and then cross-channel-based credit. Is my suggestion a perfect solution for advertisers still buying media and analyzing impressions the old way? No, but it‘s a viable start. Are there other variables that aren‘t being accounted for? Yes, of course. But this approach would lay the groundwork for demonstrating that a last click isn‘t the only media result that drives action, and it would begin to wean us all off our decade-long crutch. These small changes will start proving that some media creates and drives real impact, while some doesn‘t. And, as they do, these changes will provide the initial shove to move us out of our collective pools and into a broader media ocean, where we can effectively confront the tides pushing us away from true media efficiency.

Cross-Platforms, Crossing Goals for TV and Online Video This week, Nielsen published its "Cross-Platform" report for 2Q13. Traditional TV continues to hold up well - and dominate - among all audience groups vs. other forms of video, as it remains the broadest reaching medium with the greatest amount of inventory tonnage. As has long been the case, the data included in Nielsen's report highlights the nature of traditional TV as the medium best able to satisfy reach and frequency-based media goals against broad populations. It bears repeating that the marketers who tend to rely on TV also tend to be marketers who need to reach broad population groups. The data indicates, among other considerations, that: • Total time consumers spent viewing "traditional" (i.e. live-only) TV was flat year-over-year, per person • Viewing of TV by kids 2-11 was also flat per-person during 2Q13 (although down in aggregate year-over-year largely because of Nielsen's reduced population estimates) • Online video viewing reported by Nielsen equated to 2.3% of total TV viewing among the whole population, although unmeasured tablet and connected viewing should add to this amount. • Traditional TV remains relatively broadly popular, while online video and internet use in general remains concentrated among relatively smaller groups of the population. To point, even the quintile of people who are the lightest users of traditional TV consume 8x as much TV as online video; but the 20% of the population who are the heaviest users of online video account for 94% of all online video viewing. While there will be certain marketers who assess video-based media owners with indifference towards the devices on which their content appears, they need to get comfortable with the means by which they measure their audiences (potentially involving "franken-metrics" of merged data sets from comScore and Nielsen, or including prospectively duplicative audiences as measured by Nielsen's OCR paired with its traditional TV-based panel). They also need to get comfortable with workflows which may be costlier (buying traditional TV costs less per impression than does buying online video). Put together, the data illustrates why traditional TV will continue to dominate ad budget allocations from large brands. This is important to note as web-based media owners such as Google, Facebook and others attempt to capture traditional TV budgets. We continue to view the primary market for these media owners as the general online display marketplace: online video has become the "new" premium display, in many ways, helping to satisfy the same "engagement"-based goals that other online advertising generally helps large marketers to satisfy. But it is not as if this means that traditional TV is necessarily robust in all areas, even as it remains dominant in absolute terms for the largest brands. The forecast we published for growth in national TV media owner ad revenues called for 4.4% growth during calendar year 2014 (although up from our expectation of 3.1% for 2013) with cable growing 5.5% during 2013 and 6.7% during 2014, much better than our -0.8% forecast for network TV during 2013 and +0.4% during 2014. In support of these estimates, we have heard repeatedly from buyers that growth in volumes during the Upfront was down by more than mid-single digits for the largest networks, but flat if including football, which has become increasingly important to the health of TV. But it is worth noting that any expectations for double digit growth in scatter pricing during the upcoming broadcast season remains more of a consequence of these volume changes rather than the driver of volume changes. Meanwhile, media owners with online video properties still have a significant opportunity for growth as they continue to gain share inside the broader online display ecosystem. Our view is that nationally-oriented digital media (primarily a sub-set of total online advertising, which excludes local digital media and direct digital media) should grow by 19.2% this year to total $13bn in ad revenue, with online video accounting for a third of that total, or $3bn in ad revenue. In total, we expect the total market for online video advertising should grow by 32% this year and 26% next year. Given broadly comparable media objectives (i.e. "engagement"-based goals), workflows, and similar groups of buyers and sellers, our view is that online video advertising should primarily grow as advertisers shift their digital display budgets to online video. Certainly some of the gains from online video will occur as traditional TV sellers bundle their online properties with traditional inventory to help satisfy traditional TV buying goals, but overall we expect that growth in online video retains the capacity to grow independently of its share of video audiences.

  10. 10. YouTube's $&@%'n Biden Moment Brian Wieser back in March, 2010 when the Affordable Care Act was set to become law (and not just the beginning of an unsuccessful IT project), Vice President Joe Biden uttered specific words to President Obama regarding just how big a deal it was. Epochal changes warrant amplified language to appropriately characterize the scale of those changes, and Biden's words, profane as they may have been, were in some ways appropriate. We can only imagine if the Vice President were employed by YouTube or Nielsen he may have said the same thing when news broke regarding YouTube allowing tags from Nielsen's Online Campaign Ratings (OCR) service. OCR is important to this sector because it provides nationally-oriented or global advertisers with metrics that are generally comparable (if not perfectly matched) with those used to buy traditional national TV advertising from broadcast networks, cable networks and syndicators. Nielsen remains the unquestioned standard for audience measurement in this field with its National TV Ratings (NTR) panel, used for measuring TV ratings and commercial viewing. OCR provides GRPs, reach and frequency for consumers' online media consumption against demographic target groups which are categorized in a manner which is generally comparable to those used in the television sphere. Until last week, one of the key factors limiting the acceptance (or at least commercial scale) of OCR has been that one of the largest sources of online video inventory - Google's YouTube - refused to accept OCR tags with ads, significantly limiting the efforts of advertisers who wanted to work towards holistic measurement of video across the web using Nielsen's products. Whether because Google did not wish to empower a third party as big as Nielsen via its platform, or because they did not want to risk providing data around its video properties to Nielsen's partner and underlying source of OCR data, Facebook, or because Google wanted time to develop its own measurement service, there were clear consequences for a broad range of industry participants that followed from their position. For starters, comScore held an advantage over Nielsen as tags associated with their competing measurement service vCE (Validated Campaign Essentials) were allowed on YouTube. Beyond pricing or other deal terms, many large agencies and advertisers chose to use vCE because it worked on YouTube and also because vCE could better capture viewing activity across a broader array of video-based digital media as a result. We believe that at the individual media agency level Google left as much as tens of millions of dollars in annual media budgets were "on the table" with their previous position. This collectively might mean hundreds of millions of dollars that could have gone to Google's YouTube haven't been making their way to date. Advertisers who embraced OCR were effectively indicating they only wanted to buy properties which could eventually support consistent measurement across screens (meaning a service that would be consistent with Nielsen's NTR television ratings panel) and those advertisers may have been selective in spending money with YouTube over the past few years. So the news that Google will in fact allow OCR beginning in the first quarter of next year will probably accelerate YouTube's growth. We estimate YouTube generated perhaps 40% of the $3bn in online video ad revenue we think the industry will account for this year, not including the display revenue it generates. It will also help Nielsen improve the value of OCR and weaken one of comScore's primary advantages. It might also cause a shift of budgets away from video ad networks including Tremor Video, YuMe and properties owned by AOL, as these sources of online video inventory were likely among the beneficiaries of money that Google essentially turned away. Of course, there are still many reasons for advertisers who are customers of Tremor, YuMe and AOL to continue buying the products these companies offer, whether because of good prices, good sales efforts or unique product attributes. By evolving their products, they may also be able to expand the total market faster than might otherwise be the case. And other measurement services and approaches will also likely live on. For example, comScore's more robust mobile measurement capabilities and integrated digital measurement will continue to be an advantage for them in their sales efforts for many advertisers; many publishers will also find advantage in providing supplementary metrics from other third parties which run parallel to Nielsen's, but which allow for more depth in a particular field of measurement. However, the competitive intensity each of these companies now face is likely amplified as the potential of Nielsen and Google is more fully realized. OCR on YouTube is a big deal for online video at a strategic level because it removes a pretty significant barrier (albeit not the only one) preventing the flow of most traditional TV budgets onto different platforms where inventory is not associated with a traditional TV network. It is notable that while a "gate" has been opened, it's unlikely to be a floodgate for some time. OCR is unlikely to mean that budgets will flow directly from television onto the web at this time in any meaningful way, except if those budgets were already moving, as is the case when they are assigned to traditional TV inventory with online extensions. Thus, for now our expectation remains that YouTube will in the nearterm benefit primarily from budgets which most directly flow from other suppliers of online video inventory and indirectly from other digital media budgets. It's worth reviewing why we think this will be the case. First, traditional TV budgets are generally allocated in order to optimize against cost and reach and frequency-based metrics for a given volume of desired gross ratings points (GRPs), with an intention of driving awareness of a brand's attributes, distinctions from another brand or some other characteristic, if there is even an intended marketing goal to begin with. Further, a brand will generally place a higher value on reaching an individual at least once rather than reaching the same people multiple times and leaving some individuals un-exposed. Thus reach is generally the more important (or at least scarcer, and thus more valuable) attribute of TV buying. Perhaps it goes without saying, but the self-selecting group of advertisers who dominate TV advertising (perhaps less than 200 account for around 60% of all Babelfish Articles Sept 2013 - Nov 2013 21-11-13 Page 10
  11. 11. TV and 90% of network TV) are particularly focused on these types of goals vs. other advertisers whose media goals will differ substantially. With this starting point, these reach/frequency-centric advertisers start their budgeting process by finding the media which most efficiently (or which "least inefficiently") satisfies their objectives. Because advertisers cannot cherry-pick individual impressions from traditional TV inventory, and neither can they choose to buy only individual programs (they must buy packages of programs from individual TV networks which include collectively guaranteed levels of GRPs over the life of a campaign), the most efficient budget allocation process will usually involve network TV inventory, as their packages of inventory will generally have the broadest reach vs. alternatives. This is because even in an era with lower aggregated viewing levels of network TV, virtually everyone still watches some network TV over a multi-week period. Given this relatively unique value, networks are well-positioned to insist that advertisers accept identical inventory that is delivered on different platforms, such as is delivered through online video players including Hulu (although happily for the networks, most advertisers and agencies willingly accept this convention). Large advertisers then typically consider cable networks and nationally syndicated properties, where the primary objective is to round out reach and frequency goals while reducing a campaign's average cost per thousand (CPM) impressions. As with network TV, advertisers are generally willing to accept comparable online video inventory in their packages. It is worth noting that cable networks often receive press indicating that their agreements have been made ahead of network TV. Our view is that even under circumstances where agreements have been made with cable ahead of network, the buyers and sellers generally know where they will come out with their network volumes and pricing, and made their deals with cable networks accordingly. As it stands now, we think that YouTube might be considered among third-tier cable networks for a TV buyer. Using the broader definition of the share of the population who consumes some Google-related video, as YouTube stands now it could rank somewhere among the top dozen-or-so networks. Our best estimate (we generally believe that comScore data overstates online video consumption while Nielsen data likely understates it) is that in terms of tonnage, YouTube consumption probably equates to the equivalent of 2% of total TV consumption. Despite these advantages, YouTube falls apart because the reach of its ad-supported properties is somewhat lacking today (per data from comScore for September 2013, that Google's video ad properties reached 36.4% of the population, it would rank as the 33rd widest reaching cable network (using reach data from Rentrak) just after National Geographic and before Bravo). Reach would certainly be higher among younger audiences, but then if we considered this metric against the share of "acceptable" inventory for an advertiser to juxtapose their brand with, the reach figure would likely be much lower. This is because most advertisers who buy traditional TV wish to avoid the proverbial cat-onskateboard content that accounts for so much of YouTube's "programming" at present. YouTube does have some properties that satisfies large brands' content interests, and so there will certainly be some advertisers willing to place modest "TV" budgets on YouTube because of their use of OCR. But for the most part, Google will need to invest substantially more on content than it does presently in order to be competitive. With programming spending in the low hundreds of millions of dollars at best, YouTube would need to multiply its budgets many times over in order to more fully compete with what is available to advertisers on traditional TV programming. For now, the bulk of ad budgets that go to YouTube will continue to originate as budgets managed by digital buyers with media goals that are often different than the goals of traditional TV buying. Digital buyers tasked with a goal of brand "engagement" against a narrow audience looking at different digital media vehicles to satisfy this engagementbased goal will undoubtedly buy YouTube more now than they would have without OCR in the mix, as metrics will be somewhat comparable (if not fully integrated) with traditional TV-based video buying metrics. Presuming that buyer wants a "one-stop shop" for their online video buying needs will be positioned well to go to one media owner - Google - and potentially start the process of managing a campaign by buying YouTube before layering on additional sources of supply from stand-alone online video ad networks or other publishers. Of course, that same advertiser may also choose to buy video from an exchange or another source which can reach the bulk of the online population, but many advertisers will continue to prefer to work with media owners via direct sales channels, and for those advertisers YouTube will likely be a very efficient starting point. But at some point it would seem likely that Google will be able to address many of the aforementioned issues which will still constrain TV budgets for the near future. Significant content investment would not seem much of a stretch for Google given Netflix' success with the first-run "TV" programs it has licensed. They may also find that they need to ensure that YouTube's separates more of its "quality" content and increases the reach of that quality content to greater number of consumers within individual countries. All of these tactics will take several years to execute against and to make work well given the industry conventions which are likely to stay in place. Any new system needs participants who can evolve their offering in order for the new order to thrive, perhaps not unlike healthcare reform. But years from now, if YouTube is producing original content that is capturing real TV budgets and competing for at least a small share of a traditional TV network's ad revenues, last week was the one where an observer could point to, saying YouTube enabling Nielsen's OCR was a big $&@%'n deal.

  12. 12. Interpublic Strikes Deals Automating Buys With 5 Media Giants: Covers TV, Radio, Outdoor, Display, Video, Mobile by Joe Mandese, Aug 20, 2013, 8:14 AM On the heels of last week‘s deal naming Adap.tv its primary automation platform for targeting and buying TV and video inventory, Interpublic this morning unveiled a spate of similar deals to automate its transactions with five big media suppliers traversing TV, radio, out-of-home, mobile and online video and display. Details about how the deals would be structured and how they would work were not disclosed, but Interpublic said it now has agreements with TV programmer A&E Networks, cable operator Cablevision, out-of-home and radio operator Clear Channel, local broadcaster Tribune and online portal AOL, which is in the process of acquiring Adap.tv, to supply assets ―not previously available through automated buying systems.‖ The initiative, which was developed by Interpublic‘s Mediabrands unit, is dubbed the Magna Consortium, and is part of the agency holding company‘s mission to automate 50% of its media-buying by 2016. Interpublic has said it is making the push for several reasons, including both greater operating efficiency for its agencies and its clients as media-buying becomes hyper-fragmented and hyper-complex, as well as greater precision in targeting audiences it says will result by shifting from conventional audience-buying data (ie. Nielsen ratings, GRPs, etc.) to estimates that co-mingle so-called first- and second-party sources of data in a manner similar to the way agency trading desks utilize DMPs -- or data management platforms -- to trade online audience buys. ―The good news is that our charter members were quick to sign on to develop a plan forward,‖ Magna Global Worldwide CEO Tim Spengler stated, adding: ―Our goal is to ignite real change in the way media is transacted for the industry.‖ While programmatic trading systems are growing fast in the online display marketplace (Magna estimates this is currently about 25% of all online display advertising), the growth has come largely from the emergence of an oversupply of online inventory and auction-based media-buying models like ―RTB,‖ or real-time bidding, that many ―premium‖ suppliers are loath to embrace for fear it will ―commoditize‖ the value of their inventory. However, some of the most premium online publishers now participate in programmatic exchanges, and many of those deals are not necessarily auction-based, but function more like private exchanges where sellers can set pricing ―floors‖ and buyers can set ―ceilings" to ensure that both sides are in control of the process -- even if it‘s being processed by machines faster than humans can manage such deal-making. According to Frank Addante, CEO of Rubicon Project, one of the biggest suppliers of media-buying automation technology, the speed of such transactions is accelerating and is now down to 30 milliseconds of processing time for the average online buy. That‘s an improvement from 300 milliseconds a year ago, and three seconds three years ago, all thanks to improvements in data-processing technologies. The advances of such technologies, and the shift among advertisers and agencies to use them to improve their efficiency, as well as the data-driven effectiveness of reaching their audiences, has sparked a gold rush among media and advertising technology suppliers, many of whom are now going public. One of the fastest-growing and most sophisticated of those developers -- Rocket Fuel, which utilizes artificial intelligence and robots that can assess and bid for media value faster than any human can -- is the latest to file for an initial public offering. In its filing late last week, Rocket Fuel noted that advertisers are flocking to its technology, and that its revenues more than doubled last year -- and more than tripled during the first half of this one, thanks to a surge in the number of advertisers using its platform. The filings said Rocket Fuel currently has 784 advertisers (up from 341 last year), and that many of its existing advertisers continue to increase the volume they trade via its systems. The greatest impediment to Interpublic‘s goal of automating 50% of all its media buys by 2016 is convincing the most premium suppliers of media inventory -- especially the major television networks -- that they won‘t lose control, or value, by doing so, which is why A&E Networks' direct involvement is so significant. That said, at least a portion of all of the most premium TV suppliers inventory already is being sold through programmatic exchanges. While it‘s not being sold directly by the national TV networks themselves, the trading desks of at least two agency holding companies have already begun utilizing AudienceXpress, a programmatic audiencebuying exchange spun off from target TV-ad serving developer Visible World. The portion being traded by AudienceXpress comes from the two minutes per hour that networks give to local cable TV operators as part of their carriage agreements. While the cable operators are supposed to sell that commercial time to local or regional advertisers, AudienceXpress effectively pools their national reach into unwired network buys. Since it became operational in late January, AudienceXpress Founder and CEO Walt Horstman estimates the two agency trading desks that have been beta testing it have bought 2 billion TV advertising impressions through it. The reason why AudienceXpress has been successful where others, including Google and Microsoft, have failed, says Horstman, is that its platform is designed to give suppliers 100% control over the floors they set for selling their inventory, while giving buyers the ability to analyze more data that will enhance the value of buying those audiences from their perspective.

As with online publishing, the supply of unsold TV inventory also continues to expand due to the emergence of socalled ―long-tail‖ networks that are not yet rated by Nielsen, as well as a torrent of free video-on-demand audience impressions. 7 comments on "Interpublic Strikes Deals Automating Buys With 5 Media Giants: Covers TV, Radio, Outdoor, Display, Video, Mobile". 1.

Picture: Thinkstock. EVERYONE has different ideas about happiness, what it is and how to get it. I'd love to be happier, as I'm sure most people would, so I've found 11 ways to achieve this that are actually backed by science. 1. EXERCISE FOR 7 MINUTES You might have seen some talk recently about the scientific 7 minute workout mentioned in The New York Times . So if you thought exercise was something you didn't have time for, think again. In a study cited in Shawn Achor's book The Happiness Advantage three groups of patients treated their depression with either medication, exercise or a combination of both. While all three groups experienced similar improvements in their happiness levels to begin with, the results after six months were radically different. 38 per cent of those who had taken medication alone had slipped back into depression. Those in the combination group were doing only slightly better, with 31 per cent relapsing. Only 9 per cent of the exercise group relapsed. A study in the Journal of Health Psychology found that people who exercised felt better about their bodies, even when they saw no physical changes. 2. SLEEP MORE TO AVOID NEGATIVE EMOTIONS We know that sleep helps our body recover and repair, helping us focus and be more productive. But it's also important for our happiness. An article in NutureShock explains how sleep affects our positivity. Negative stimuli get processed by the amygdala; positive or neutral memories gets processed by the hippocampus. Sleep deprivation hits the hippocampus harder than the amygdala. The result is that sleep-deprived people fail to recall pleasant memories, yet recall gloomy memories just fine. A study in The BPS Research Digest proves sleep affects our sensitivity to negative emotions. Commutes are even worse when you have to stand the whole way. Picture: Thinkstock. 3. MOVE CLOSE TO WORK - IT'S WORTH IT Most of us commute to work five days a week so it's unsurprising that it would take a toll. Babelfish Articles Sept 2013 - Nov 2013 21-11-13 Page 13
  14. 14. According to The Art of Manliness, a long commute affects us dramatically. "People never get accustomed to their daily slog to work because sometimes the traffic is awful and sometimes it's not." Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert says "driving in traffic is a different kind of hell every day". We tend to try to compensate for this by having a bigger house or a better job, but two Swiss economists who studied the effect of commuting on happiness found that such factors could not offset the misery created by a long commute. 4. SPEND TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY - OR REGRET IT Staying in touch with friends and family is one of the top five regrets of the dying. Social time is so valuable, even for introverts. "We are happy when we have family, we are happy when we have friends and almost all the other things we think make us happy are actually just ways of getting more family and friends," says Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert. George Vaillant, the director of a 72-year study of the lives of 268 men, says he's learnt that the "only thing that really matters in life are your relationships to other people". He told The Atlantic the men's relationships, at age 47, predicted late-life adjustment better than any other variable, except defences. Good sibling relationships seem especially powerful: 93 per cent of the men who were thriving at age 65 had been close to a brother or sister when younger. A study published in the Journal of Socio-Economics found that our relationships are worth more than $100,000. Actual changes in income, on the other hand, buy very little happiness. The Terman study, which is covered in The Longevity Project, found that relationships and how we help others were important factors in living long, happy lives. Those who helped their friends and neighbours, advising and caring for others, tended to live to old age. If only family time was always so idyllic. Picture: Thinkstock 5. GO OUTSIDE - HAPPINESS IS MAXIMISED AT 13.9°C In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor says time outdoors improves happiness. A study found that spending 20 minutes outside in good weather not only boosted positive mood, but broadened thinking and improved working memory. A UK study found that being outdoors, near the sea, on a warm, sunny afternoon was the perfect spot for most. In fact, participants were found to be substantially happier outdoors in all natural environments than they were in urban environments. The American Meteorological Society published research in 2011 that found current temperature has a bigger effect on our happiness than variables like wind speed and humidity, or even the average temperature over the course of a day. It also found that happiness is maximised at 13.9°C, so keep an eye on the weather forecast before heading outside for your 20 minutes of fresh air. 6. SPLASH CASH, BUT NOT ON STUFF Spending also makes a difference, but not in the way you might expect. Research into the spending habits of more than 150 people found that money spent on activities - such as concerts and dining out - brought far more pleasure than material purchases. Spending money on others, called "prosocial spending", also boosts happiness. Research by the The Journal of Happiness Studies also found participants who bought something for someone else reported feeling significantly happier immediately after this recollection. The happier participants felt, the more likely they were to choose to spend a windfall on someone else in the near future. Being generous with our time has a similar effect. A study of volunteering in Germany explored how volunteers were affected when their opportunities to help others were taken away and found that volunteering creates higher life satisfaction. In his book Flourish: A Visionary New Understanding of Happiness and Well-being University of Pennsylvania professor Martin Seligman explains that helping others can improve our own lives. "We scientists have found that doing a kindness produces the single most reliable momentary increase in well-being of any exercise we have tested," he said. In fact, 100 hours per year (or two hours per week) is the optimal time we should dedicate to helping others in order to enrich our lives. Is this smile big enough? Picture: Thinkstock. 7.
