  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled 5 Obstacles to Marketing Intelligence – II What Stops Us From Achieving Marketing Greatness
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Quick Review of Last Week’s Lecture
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Last week, we started talking about the 5 obstacles that keep organizations from achieving marketing excellence
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We covered the first 2 obstacles and will be moving on the final 3 this week
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We will have established the foundations of the course after this lecture and will start moving into the actual analytics and metrics from our next class
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So let’s get caught up first…
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Obstacle 1: Getting Started
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What are some of the reasons that people give for why they are unable to get started?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled How do we overcome them?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Obstacle 2: Causality
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What is causality? How does it affect our marketing?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled As intelligent marketers, how do we counter causality arguments?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The Remaining 3 Obstacles
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Overcome Obstacle 3: Lack of Data— Strategies for Obtaining Customer Data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Many marketers struggle with too much data, rather than not enough
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Remember that we covered collection and analysis of the right data in overcoming obstacle 1
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But B2B companies have a legitimate data challenge, since these companies do not sell directly to customers
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled They sell through a channel and do not have direct access to customer transactional data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled There are three approaches to overcome this obstacle
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Option 1: Channel Partner Data Sharing
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Mornings for John Chambers, CEO of the $39 billion Cisco Systems empire, starts with a can of Diet Coke and Cisco’s e- Sales portal
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Through this enterprise web application, the senior management can drill down through global sales data that occurred on the previous day by geography, purchasing company/products or sold by a specific sales manager
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, for those of you unfamiliar with the Cisco sales model, this is a great trick
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Why?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Cisco sells more than 95% of its products indirectly through value-added resellers
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So how does Cisco do it?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Cisco contractually requires its value-added resellers to share customer sales data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Most B2B companies find that requesting customer data from the channel partner is met with a firm ‘‘no way.’’ The partner refuses on the grounds that the data are its property and the source of its competitive advantage.
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Cisco requires channel partners to share customer data in order to resell their products
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So B2B companies must answer the question: ‘‘What’s in it for my channel partner to share its data?’’
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled One answer is that B2B companies spend considerable marketing dollars co-marketing with channel partners so shared data analysis provides deep insights into how to radically improve the marketing performance
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, we need to be clear about one thing – and it’s a big thing - the B2B firm does not necessarily have to know the name and address of the customer; this could be deleted from the shared data file.
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What we are interested in is what products or services the customer purchases, and the ability to act upon these data, perhaps through the channel partner
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled This “disguise approach” works because the channel partner’s concern that if the B2B firm has the customer data, it will want to go direct and cut the channel out of the deal
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Option 2: Frequent Drinker Programs
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Suntory is one of the largest liquor distillers in Japan and brews a beer called Suntory Malts
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled It is in the 3rd tier of popularity, in terms of sales revenue and brand awareness
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But in the late 1990s, Suntory did something with the Internet that at the time that was particularly innovative
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled They created a frequent drinker web site
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, Suntory, like Cisco, sells all of its beer indirectly through beer distributors, bars, restaurants, groce ry stores and vending machines – which makes data collection difficult, if not impossible
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So the creation of a website where customers would come to and input the number of beers they drank, given by codes on the bottles, and in return get points was an interesting way to collect data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In return for sharing the data, customers got to purchase silly hats, bottle tops with their name imprinted on it, or the chair that is too uncomfortable to sit in
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled At the peak of the campaign, Malts reported 300,000 visitors a month to the web site
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled More importantly, these were high- value customers – the frequent drinkers – and the website enabled the collection of data for direct marketing extremely easy
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, this worked in Japan because after work office parties involve the mass consumption of alcohol. This would not have worked in the US!
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But the idea of a frequent drinker program transcends cultures and geographies…
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Welcome to mycokerewards.com
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled My Coke Rewards The website is a loyalty program for frequent Coke- branded product drinkers Again, users get points for how many Coke drinks they have and get rewards such as T-shirts, DVDs and discounts with the many partners affiliated with the marketing activity
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What do we learn?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Customer data is a cheap as a T-shirt!
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled My Coke Rewards enable Coke to have direct access to their “frequent drinkers” and to do direct marketing via e-mail to this valuable customer base
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The site also provided a revenue stream for Coke through the paid ads on the site for participating partners
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In both of these example, there is a crystal clear value proposition for customer and resellers to share their data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So the question that we ask is: “What is your value proposition for customers to provide their data?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Option 3: Use Surveys as a Proxy for Customer Data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We can also use focus groups and surveys for fine-grained segmentation and target marketing
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The idea is to capture the demographics, characteristics, and purchasing habits of your end customer through in-depth market research
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We can create survey- based, analytic marketing offers targeting these segments and test them using focus groups and experiments as we discussed in Obstacle 2
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, I should note that this approach is not as effective as analyzing large customer transaction data sets, it can be a great way to get started if you are a B2B firm
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled There are many professional service firms that will design, conduct and analyze the survey, but you can start with a free lunch and a gift for participants
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The internet has also given us the ability to create and conduct online surveys. For the cost of surveying 10 people in person, you can survey 100 or more online
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But there is a problem with the survey model, online or offline – getting people to sign up and participate
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The other problem that we discussed was privacy issues because customers can be hesitant about sharing information in fear of how it might be used
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled One marketer once told a story of their legal department telling them to delete customer data after a specific time period for fear of liability
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The reason…
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The company did not have a privacy policy and the legal department did not understand what marketing planned to do with the customer data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So, first thing – marketers must clearly communicate the privacy policy both internally and externally about how data will and will not be used
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In some cases, there are laws preventing direct data collection of customer data
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In the United States, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prevents pharma companies from knowing patient prescriptions
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled While we have to follow these laws, there are ways around them
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled If you create a website targeting a specific illness, like diabetes, you can provide information and provide community support groups to give product information to customers while gaining customer feedback and insights
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The key understanding is simple – always add value to the customer interaction by answering the question “What’s in it for me?” from the customer’s perspective
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Overcome Obstacle 4: Resources and Tools— Build the Infrastructure for Data- Driven Marketing
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Infrastructure for Analytic Marketing
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled A PC combined with Microsoft Excel makes for an amazingly powerful tool
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled For infrastructure, this is all most marketers need to get started on the analytic marketing path
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But you should know the limitations - Excel 2003 had a limit of 65,536 rows in a spreadsheet, and Excel 2007 has a limit of 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled So if you have a large number of customer, Excel is not going to work as a marketing database, not should it
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now I will provide you with Excel templates for analyzing customer satisfaction data, internet metrics, and calculating financial return on marketing
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We can also use Excel to create and manage marketing campaign scorecards
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled But if you have a large customer database, you will need to use SAS, SPSS or a specialized business intelligence application
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled ‘‘The difference in these requirements is the difference between building a ranch house or the Empire State Building.’’
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In short – Think big, start small and scale up fast
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Infrastructure for a Large Firm
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Customer Data Collection Data Storage Technical Tools
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled We will spend time talking about this model in later lectures, so I will hold off on going into detail now
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Overcome Obstacle 5: People and Change— Create an Analytic Marketing Culture
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What’s the one phrase that we hear more than any other in business when it comes to change?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled “I am just a _________ and have no influence to create change.”
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled 90% of employees underestimate their potential to influence others
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled In previous examples, we have seen that small changes can have big impacts
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled You have to understand that in the culture of an organization, change starts with you. So start with simple changes that positively impact those around you
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Now, we have to understand that creating a analytic marketing or marketing intelligence culture requires more than one person
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled You have to convince others and the quick win is an essential early step
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Find out who the decision makers in your organization are and learn what will convince them to believe in the change
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled One fact that we need to remember is: The trouble with change is people
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled To understand corporate culture, think of it as three major categories: rational, bureaucratic or political
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Young MBAs believe that organizations are rational meaning the best idea will win. Experienced managers know that isn’t the truth.
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled A bureaucratic organization has a very rigid organizational structure, and protocols must be strictly followed in communicating with senior executives
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled These organizations are militaristic, with the general giving orders from the top, and the commanders ensuring the orders are executed on the front lines
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Political organizations have centers of power, with individuals who have kingdoms within the organization, often accompanied by budgetary authority and staff
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The best example of a political organization – a university or center of higher learning
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Henry Kissinger once said, ‘‘The reason the fights are so fierce in academia is because the stakes are so low.’’
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled What are the best ways to drive change?
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled ‘‘Our marketing budget is being cut by 36 percent; we need to justify our future marketing spending.’’ ‘‘We are losing significant market share.’’
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled ‘‘Our discount marketing is killing overall profitability.’’ ‘‘We are hemorrhaging customers and don’t know who are the most profitable.’’ ‘‘Our competitors are consistently outmarketing us.’’
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Create Incentive for Change through Measurement and Behavior
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Weight Loss & Calorie Counting
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled The point is if you can measure it, you can control it.
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled For marketers, making metrics and measurement ‘‘public’’ within the organization will incite change
  • http://emagine-group.com Brand Focused, Socially Active, Digitally Enabled Many organizations incite activity, not results, so the idea is to focus on the metrics that really value marketing
