  5. 5. What is big data? The basic idea behind “Big Data” is that everything we do is increasingly leaving a digital trace (or data) which we as marketers can use and analyze.

  6. 6. Big data Marketing Also known as data-driven marketing, big data marketing is the process of collecting, analyzing, and executing on the insights you’ve derived from big data to encourage customer engagement and improve marketing. Big Data analytics does a really good job telling us what our customers are doing, who they are doing it with, where they do it and when they do it. However, it does a pretty awful job telling us why our customers do what they do. Understanding the why behind the actions is critical to marketers since they are tasked with finding ways to change customer behavior. @amaiowa @bluecompass Tweet Questions to

  30. 30. @amaiowa @bluecompass Tweet Questions to ….Is it any wonder data is cool once again?
  31. 31. @amaiowa @bluecompass Tweet Questions to The secret is not just “big” data, but “right” data. Here’s how we see it play out. What we call “enterprise marketing platforms” will take in data on the viewing and purchase behavior of millions. They will feed it into software that combines elements of marketing models, attribution models, and other analytical tools. And the result will be predictions that relate watching to buying more precisely than ever before. These models will then inform systems that systematically and “programmatically” bid for and buy advertising, and monitor the buying activity that results. These results will be fed back into the predictive models in real-time. The models get better with each cycle. The waste goes out. The ROI goes up. And the money comes in. Are we there yet? Nobody’s quite there yet. -Mitch Barns, CEO of Nielsen Even traditional agrees
