  • 7. 3. Executive Summary and Highlights This is the fourth annual Online Measurement and Strategy Report published by Econsultancy in association with Lynchpin. The research is based on a survey of more than 800 companies (including both ‘client-side’ organisations and agencies) which was carried out in March and April 2011. Key findings:  Companies continue to wrestle with a joined-up approach to data collection and analysis, which incorporates web data into broader business strategy. Only a minority of companies have common KPIs (key performance indicators) for online and offline data. – Disappointingly, fewer companies than last year say they have a company-wide strategy in place that ties data collection and analysis to business objectives (22% compared to 25% last year). Only 28% of respondents say that web analytics definitely drive actionable recommendations that make a difference to their organisation, down from 31% last year.  Reliance on Google Analytics (GA) continues to grow, but many companies still prefer to use their other analytics vendor for a range of reporting requirements. – The proportion of companies using Google exclusively for web analytics now stands at 44%, up from 38% in 2010 and only 23% in 2009.  Companies plan to bolster their resourcing of data analysis for both in-house staff and outsourced analysts. Companies are more likely than last year to be increasing budgets for consulting and other third-party services relating to web analytics. – 42% of companies are planning to increase the number of employees dedicated to data analysis over the next 12 months, while a third (31%) are planning for more outsourced analysis.  The number of companies interested in measuring their online reputation and social media activity continues to grow. – The proportion of companies who say they analyse reputation, buzz and social media metrics has significantly increased.  Financial and resourcing constraints still present the biggest problems, along with a lack of co-ordination and absence of strategy. – The biggest barrier preventing companies from having an effective online measurement strategy is still lack of budget and resources, though significantly fewer companies than last year cite this as one of the three most significant issues (48% compared to 57%).SAMPLE ONLY.

  • 9. 4. Introduction4.1. Introduction by Lynchpin Lynchpin is proud to sponsor this ongoing research into online measurement and strategy, a topic naturally close to our hearts as a web analytics consultancy. The results of this year’s survey continue a story of great opportunity matched with a fair dose of practical frustration. As a discipline, web analytics is still experiencing some growing pains. The expectations for insight on demand are ever-increasing; meanwhile data volumes continue to grow and start to spread themselves across disparate sources, presenting new challenges to overcome. With headcount of dedicated analysts growing, the focus now increasingly turns to process: how to keep information flowing effectively around a business to drive decisions. Coordinating technology and people remains a key point of friction in driving value from web data. Getting the basics right is still a challenge equally worthy of focus. In the value chain of raw data to actionable insight, the two most frequent points of failure tend to be failure to align KPIs with business performance, and not collecting the right data in the first place through poor technology implementation. The first phase of consolidation of web analytics technology vendors looks to be reaching its logical conclusion, with the number of major paid web analytics vendors yet again reduced by mergers and acquisitions. Google remains a powerful force in the analytics market. The extent of overlap and complementary usage of Google Analytics alongside paid for tools hints at continuing functional weaknesses in the paid-for toolsets set against increasing attention to data ownership. Online measurement needs to reflect the significant growth of multichannel businesses, and here we start to see the next phases of the market develop. Web analytics vendors are historically poor at data flexibility. Meanwhile, traditional Business Intelligence vendors historically lack the mind- set to deal effectively with clickstream data. As web analytics comes of age, it needs to join-up both the online and the offline, and the technical and the strategic. We look forward to playing our part in that process over the coming year.

  • 10. 5. Methodology and Sample This is the fourth annual Online Measurement and Strategy Report published by Econsultancy in association with Lynchpin. There were more than 800 respondents to our research request, which took the form of an online survey1 in March and April 2011. Respondents included both client-side (in-house) organisations who measure their online activity and supply-side respondents (i.e. agencies, vendors or consultants offering web analytics services). The findings are shown for client-side (or ‘company respondents’) and supply-side (‘agency respondents’) participants separately. Please see the appendix for more information about the profile of survey respondents. Information about the survey, including the link, was emailed to Econsultancy’s user base. The incentive for taking part was access to a complimentary copy of this report just before its publication on the Econsultancy website. If you have any questions about the research, please email Econsultancy’s Research Director, Linus Gregoriadis (Linus@econsultancy.com).SAMPLE ONLY.

  • 11. 6. Findings6.1. Information requirements The chart below shows the different types of information analysed by organisations. Broadly speaking, organisations are now analysing more data than they were previously and this might account for the lack of progress companies are making when it comes to translating data into actionable next steps [See Figure 44]. The more data there is, the harder it is to make sense of everything within a coherent framework.

  • 15. 6.3.2. Barriers preventing frameworks for analysing online and offline data In an open-ended question, companies were asked about the main barriers to having a consistent framework for analysing online and offline data. The tag cloud below summarises the responses. Time, lack of understanding, budget constraints and lack of resources are frequently cited as significant barriers. Powered by Wordle The lack of resources was frequently cited by respondents. Many companies are unsure of how to put an appropriate framework in place, and some companies do not see the value of doing this.Lack of resources – time, budget and skills SAMPLE ONLY.

  • 16. 6.4. Barriers to success6.4.1. Barriers preventing an effective online measurement strategy The main barrier to an effective online measurement strategy is still the lack of budget and resources, which is one of the three biggest problems for 48% of organisation surveyed. However, it is encouraging that there has been a slight drop in the proportion of companies citing this, as this has fallen from 57% last year.SAMPLE ONLY.

  • 17. 6.4.2. Main frustrations involved in managing web analytics Companies were asked about their main frustrations associated with managing analytics.
