  25. 25. Multivariate Testing Guidelines • Select the elements you believe will have the strongest impact on the results. • You must have at least three elements to test. • It is recommended that elements be independent of each other. (For example, do not test your layout and content in the same test.) • Its recommended that each element must have the same number of alternatives. • For each element, it is recommended to have alternatives that are significantly different from each other. Copyright 2006, Offermatica Corp. All rights reserved. | Proprietary and Confidential to Offermatica Corp. 25
  26. 26. Testing Best Practices Choose your success metric during campaign design. Let campaigns run for a minimum of one week (two weeks is preferable). If possible, always filter testing results by traffic source. Exclude extreme data (i.e. unusually large orders) when evaluating revenue measures. Consider statistical confidence: What is the likelihood that these results will be consistently reproduced? Copyright 2006, Offermatica Corp.

  27. 27. Privacy – What’s It Worth? Tess Koleczek Chief Privacy Officer First Draft of Section 1.0 [7/13/04] Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  28. 28. ROI – A New Privacy Concept Why measure ROI for privacy? • Privacy = Trust • Trust gets you three things: – Customer acquisition – Retention throughout the transaction – Repeat business • Those three things translate to revenue. • Revenue gets you noticed within your organization. • Seat at the table gives consumer advocacy a voice in the business. 28 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  29. 29. Game Plan: Measuring ROI Getting Started: Six Steps to Demonstrating ROI: • Step 1: Obvious – Review your current situation • Step 2: What is your role in the business? • Step 3: Get down to business • Step 4: Test your theory • Step 5: Build some momentum • Step 6: Make it happen 29 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  30. 30. Step 1: Look at the Obvious Your Privacy Policy • Is your policy pro-consumer? • Do customers have an opportunity to view it or even know it exists? • Is the policy readable, aka, would my mom get it? • What are you telling people up front? Or do they have to scroll down the page in order to find something comforting? 30 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  31. 31. Step 2: How Does Your Company View YOU? Privacy Team • Are you a participant in key operations & development meetings? (where’s your seat at the table?) • If not, at what stage do you become involved? (driver or rider?) • Can you discuss more than just regulatory requirements and privacy? (do you speak the business language?) • Are you a business person or a privacy cop? Demonstrate that you understand the goals of the business, not just your department. 31 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  32. 32. Step 3: Dig A Little Deeper • Location of links to privacy policy • Certifications or seals – are they visible? • Pages where you are “selling” your brand • Points of collection • Type of message your company projects – Value? – Products? – Trust? 32 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  33. 33. Step 4:Testing Your Trust Theory - A/B Testing Images provided by Offermatica 33 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  34. 34. Examples of Adding Value • Work with Public Relations & Marketing • Pick endorsements or certifications that add value • Find appropriate locations for display 34 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  35. 35. Financial Benefits • Measuring success – TRUSTe logo alone provided a 3-5% bump in application conversions – Newer websites: • TRUSTe logo plus other endorsements provided a 20% increase in conversion rates! – Calculate the benefits: • Every “converted” application = $X • 2000 apps per day = 100 more conversions = $X,000 35 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  36. 36. Step 5: Prepare to be Heard • Make a map of the current placement of privacy info - What is the message being projected? • Identify locations that would benefit from a bump in consumer trust & strategically locate info to derive value. – Is there “real estate” available for better messaging? • Offer various combinations of “enhancements” • Get the support of business owners – they want to succeed, too. • Estimate the financial gain for the company – TRUSTe logo alone provided a 3-5% bump • Request testing to prove your point (be persistent!) 36 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  37. 37. Step 6: Make It Happen • Sell ideas and benefits to business owners – get their support - Operations - Marketing - Customer Service - Compliance - Legal • Escalate – work the decision-making food chain • Emphasize the bottom line: TRUST = $$ 37 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
  38. 38. Consumer Advocacy is Good Business • Business reality: Revenue drives most business decisions • Adjust your privacy program to contribute a financial benefit • It takes time & support, so be patient • Use tools already available: – TRUSTe seal – Other certifications (Verisign, ESRB, etc.) – Endorsements (“as seen in WSJ, Forbes, etc.) • Document successes and let executives know your value! 38 Proprietary & Confidential – E-LOAN, Inc. ©2005
