    1. 1. Over 100 Years of Advertising Measurement (What worked and what didn’t) [1906-2013]© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
    2. 2. “Sometimes, in order to know where you’re going, you need to understand where you came from”. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure”.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. W. Edwards Deming
    3. 3. 1906 – Print Kellogg’s print the world’s first full page press advert. It soon becomes a case study for advertising success. As a direct result of this one advert in Ladies Home Journal, orders of Corn Flakes increase from 500 cases per day to over 2,900. Metric: Journal Subscribers v Sales. Methodology: Kellogg’s weren’t doing any other advertising so attribution was easy, although (like today) this struggles to take into account word-of- mouth recommendations.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

    4. 4. According to advertising commentators, when the Ford Model T* launched in 1908 as “the world’s first affordable car”, the increased traffic became responsible for the explosion in roadside advertising.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

    5. 5. 1912 – Outdoor The world’s largest billboard is built in Times Square, New York measuring 32m x 15m. Ad men claim that billboards are the ultimate ad format for increasing brand awareness. Metric: Traffic (”Eyeballs”). Methodology: A very rough manual footfall estimate of the number of people / traffic that passes through Times Square. Not much has changed in billboard measurement over the last 100 years.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 5
    6. 6. 1922 – Radio Alvin. T Fuller is the first person to purchase time on a radio station in exchange for mentions. Metric: Number of Listeners.

    7. 7. 1939 – Direct Mail Advertising agencies start to appear everywhere. The founder of one of the most successful ones, David Ogilvy starts out in business by spending $500 on postcards to advertise a hotel for his first client. He mails them to everyone in his phone directory. Direct response advertising is born.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 7

    12. 12. 1960 - TV For the world’s first televised presidential debate, advertising students at Harvard University predict that the average attention span of the American public is 42 seconds. JFK wins the debates with responses broken down into 42 second sound-bites. Similar research was done in 2008 for Barack Obama’s campaign. The average attention span had dropped to less than 5 seconds Obama’s simple “Change” and “Yes We Can” campaign was born partly as a result of© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved.

Metric: CPM (Cost per mille) Methodology: Adverts are sold on a CPM basis by calculating the cost of an ad divided by the audience size.

    16. 16. 2000 – AdWords Google launches AdWords in 2000 with 350 customers. By 2012 it is their main source of revenue generating USD$42.5bn.

    18. 18. 2003 – Acquisition The need to track acquisition metrics became more important once CEO’s started demanding conversions instead of just brand awareness or impressions. “How many customers actually bought anything as a result of this campaign?” As a result, advertising success metrics become more credible in the boardroom because as they are calculated upon conversations, rather than leads*. Metric: CPA (Cost per Acquisition) Methodology: Ad Campaign Cost / [Impressions x CTR x Paying Customers] * CPL (Cost per Lead) is a variation of CPA.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential.
    19. 19. 2006 “Social” Media The term “Cost per engagement” is trademarked in order to attempt to bring more credibility and accountability to ad units. Social advertising takes off in 2008 when Facebook launches engagement ads. Facebook user growth explodes from 150m - 450m during the next 12 months. Metric: CPE (Cost per Engagement) Methodology: Unlike CPM or CPC, CPE impressions are free. Advertisers only pay for CPE ads when a user clicks on an ad. Note: In some instances, “Engagement” is classed as someone simply hovering over an ad to open up the full creative.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 19
    20. 20. Starbucks produce the first promoted tweet in April 2010. Some reports claim that Starbucks is “the most connected brand in the world” slightly ahead of Coca-Cola, Disney and Red Bull.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 20
    21. 21. 2010 – Social ROI As brands start investing significant amounts of money in social media campaigns, marketers and executives debate social ROI. Many (wrongly) believe that it is impossible “to put a value on a relationship”. Some agencies even suggest that the average value of a “like” is $136.38! Metric: ROI – Return on Investment Methodology: (Revenue - Investment) / Investment *100© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 21
    22. 22. 2010 – PinterestPinterest launched as a closed beta in2010. By 2012 it was driving more trafficto websites than LinkedIn, Twitter,Google+ and YouTube combined.Pinterest is now valued at $2.5bn havinggrown from 5,000 users to 48.7m in justunder 3 years.

    24. 24. 2012 – Social NPS As the boundaries between marketing and customer service become increasingly blurred within social media channels, measuring customer satisfaction (instead of ROI) becomes increasingly important. This is especially true for brands wanting to measure the impact of social media, but who are not able to directly link social activity to sales. Metric: NPS (Net Promoter Score) Methodology: Measuring customer satisfaction in order to calculate brand loyalty, is usually done in social media via a survey. Consumers are usually rated on a scale of 1-10 and ranked as promoters or Heineken believe that the detractors. majority of their 12.4m Users are incentivsed to take a Facebook or Twitter Facebook fans are 64% more survey (often anonymously), asking customers, fans likely to recommend them to and non-customers of certain brands, how likely they© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated.

    26. 26. 2012 – Check-In’s While the future of check-in services like 4SQ and the likelihood of users checking-into venues is still a top of hot debate, driving a customer into a physical location as a result of a social media interaction is still the ultimate goal and dream success metric for many social brands. Metric: Check-In’s / Coupon Redemption Methodology: Analytics from your preferred location-based marketing service will help you measure the success of your social activity. The most savvy brands are able to match up online data, with existing customer data, and match it up against to social interactions.© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved.

    28. 28. 2013+ The Future? Now that Facebook own face-recognition and location based technology via their acquisitions of Face.com and Gowalla it will be interesting to see how they encourage global brands to engage with consumers on a local scale… Some reports claim that uber-social brands like Starbucks are trialing technology that automatically check-in opt-in users via face recognition when they enter a store, sends their favourite drink order to the barista, and contactless payment helps them be in and out of the store in seconds. Metric: ”Door Swingers” Methodology: Facebook will be a major player in this space, but expect to see major partnerships with Square – helping local businesses track the spending habits and online behaviour of their© 2013 Adobe Systems Incorporated.
