  3. 3. •  Digital is hard to characterize Awareness 
 (Display, Email, Social, –  Strategic + Tactical Mobile, Fat Tail Search) –  Branding + Performance Consideration
•  Digital touches customers throughout" (Display, Mid-Tail the funnel Search, Social) –  Can’t win by simply harvesting demand Preference
 (Long-Tail –  You must create it (display, social, etc.) Search, Social Email)•  Digital is hard to measure Action
 –  Traditional metrics no longer suffice (Social, Search,•  Yet, each buy must stand on its own Email) Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  4. 4. “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” -Abraham Maslow•  We were initially taught to measure performance via: –  Clicks and CTRs –  Directly attributable conversions •  We now know these don’t tell the whole story –  Keyword assists are important (Search) –  Display Ads can be effective without clicks –  Social contributes throughout the process•  Data shows clicks don’t matter for " measuring Display ads –  8% of users contribute 80% of Display clicks –  Only 20% of post-imp conversions follow clicks Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  5. 5. •  Attributing credit to the last click is still the norm –  Rewards Search –  Punishes Display, Email and Social•  As an industry, we have to do better!•  We need to: –  Identify all interactions that precede " conversions –  Attribute value to each touch point " that plays a supporting role Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  6. 6. There are two primary methodologies for attribution:•  Algorithmic modeling: analyzing log files (any anything else you can find) to correlate impact –  Performed in batches, monthly, quarterly or annually•  Operational Attribution: analyzing all touch points that precede a visit or conversion –  Requires synching of ad server and site analytics data –  Requires new approach to measuring impact of social Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  7. 7. •  We know display drives leads from direct and natural search•  If you can quantify the impact, you can optimize spend•  Case study: Health care provider (lead generation) –  Attribution resulted in a 50% lift in leads from Display Ads –  Resulted in a 35% drop in CPL from Display Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  8. 8. •  Vendor-level attribution can be very insightful –  Last-click “laggards” may actually be leaders•  Case study: Local advertising campaign (Retailer) –  KHOU.com was 2nd worst outlet based on last click –  After including assists, KHOU.com was 4th best Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  9. 9. •  The next big thing in attribution: Social Media –  Attribute credit for social assists –  Assign economic value –  Calculate ROI from Social Media•  Since you can’t cookie, you have " to take a different approach –  Identify where social interactions " preceded visits and conversions –  Quantify the assists –  Define Social’s contribution to sales Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
  10. 10. •  How We Do Social Media Attribution –  Index URLs where Brand is being mentioned •  Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blog mentions, Articles, etc. –  Use Javascript to compare Index to browser history for visitors –  Record the number of matches Browsers indicates which URLs you’ve seen before Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011

  13. 13. •  Fact: all analytics platforms overstate % of New vs. Returning visitors –  Cookie deletion (30%) –  Multiple devices (?%)•  How do we adjust?•  176% adjustment? –  How does this impact how we measure media? Media Attribution and Measurement © Encore Media Metrics 2011
