  • The Digital Challenge:Being Greater with DataThe metrics required to evaluate the effectiveness of digitaladvertising for brand campaigns. “It’s time for digital media to grow up and for clients who are running full-on marketing campaigns to really understand how their campaigns are performing if they spend $5 million or $1 million or $800,000 online, across various sites and fragmented audiences.” Curt Hecht, President, Publicis Groupe’s VivaKi Nerve Center, April 22 2009Mind The GapDespite digital’s reputation as the most measurable of all media,marketers continue to grapple with how much to invest in themedium because of the sheer abundance of data generated andthe myriad of ways to measure it.According to the findings of the MIA Project1(Measurement of Interactive Audiences) marketers 96% say it was extremely important to have consistency in terms of measurement calculationsare crying out for consistent and transparentonline measures. Out of 800+ marketers that weresurveyed globally, 96 percent of respondents said were satisfied that 23% this need is fulfilledthat it is important for measurement calculations tobe clear and transparent — only 29 percent weresatisfied that this is the case in practice. It is clear there is significant room for improvement in digital measurement but what does it take to ensure that we deliver the transparency and consistency 96% say it is important for measurement that our customers crave? In my mind there are two calculations to be clear and transparent essential measures to evaluate a campaign’s success – quantity and quality. Most successful advertising were satisfied that this is campaigns are trying to achieve great effectiveness 29% the case in practice (quality) on a large scale (quantity). This translates to two questions that digital needs to provide an answer for brand advertisers:Similarly, 96 percent of those surveyed said that 1.

  • A Question of QuantityAudience reach and frequency measures are common in traditionalmedia planning.In pre-campaign planning these measures informon whether the target audience is available to buywithin the specific media channel. Post campaign,they are used to evaluate the efficiency of the buy The challenge is toin reaching the target audience compared to ensure the accuracyother media. of the online panelsIn the online world, site reach by audience iscommonly available, answering the question on and to push forwhether the target audience is available to buywithin the specific media channel.

Digital generally focuses on measuringimmediate actions post exposure, whereas other readily accessiblemedia demonstrate the delivery of an ad to aspecific target audience. The outcome is that to advertisers.digital campaigns tend to be planned, boughtand evaluated in isolation, restricting budgetallocation, cross platform synergies andcampaign optimisation.Fortunately, the data and analytics do exist todeliver comparable audience reach and frequencymeasures for online campaigns. By combiningpublisher server log data of campaign impressionswith online panel data (from companies such asNielsen and comScore2) we are able to report backon the audience delivery of a campaign. www.advertising.microsoft.com/europe page 2 View slide
  • Exploring the Case forDigital GRPsAdvertisers and agencies are accustomed to buying offline media interms of GRPs or Gross Rating Points.It provides them with a comparative measure To add further complexity let’s remind ourselvesacross traditional media and they are therefore that different media and media element mixeskeen to extend it to online. In its simplest form, the yield different results. That is, 100 GRPs of radio iscalculation for GRP is: different to 100 GRPs of TV or a newspaper. 100 GRPs of day time TV is different from 100 GRPs of peak time. Similarly, online GRPs will yield its ownGRP =% audience reach x frequency x 100 unique results that will vary by format and context. Applying equivalence factors and frequency capping measures specific to the medium go someHence if we now have a way to calculate the way to refine the GRP measures.

  • Validating the Qualityof the Digital Audience:Dwell on BrandingTo validate the value digital media adds to a brand we need torecognise digital’s uniqueness — in terms of levels of engagementand interaction with an audience.We know that consumers are willing to engage with We believe that measuring the engagement thatbrands in active and explorative ways on their own the advert provokes provides a good surrogateterms.

  • Conclusions“When marketers say they want to measure online branding effectiveness, there arereally two questions they want answered:1. How successfully and efficiently did I reach my target audience?2. Did my advertising influence the intended target’s attitudes, perceptions or behaviours associated with the brand?”Geoff Ramsey, CEO eMarketer, The Great GRP Debate, July 2009Reach is a simple but powerful criterion forsuccess in marketing — advertisers want toquantify how many people had a chance to seetheir brand’s message. That’s a fundamental “The challenge is gettingquestion—no matter what the medium and has that vertical measurementbecome the currency by which traditional mediais bought and sold.
