Overcoming the Seduction of Data - AlphaTerra Digital Marketing Conference - 2012-11-20

This talk was given at the AlphaTerra Digital Marketing Conference held on 20 Nov 2012 at Jakarta, Indonesia. The audience consisted of large advertisers who are new to digital marketing. In this talk I outline a 5-step process for setting up an actionable framework for measuring KPIs and goals. The aim is to have an outcome-driven strategy that is backed by a strong foundation of measurement. The role of the analyst is not to simply measure but to also take action based on the insights gleaned on the data. The actions taken should be aligned with meeting and exceeding the organization's strategic (not just marketing) objectives.

This helped kick-start the launch of our range of wedding shoes, and we’re seeing great sales as a result.” Michael credits the 10% uplift in sales following the release of the new wedding shoe range to this intelligent approach. @vinoaj
