  4. 4. If Not The Click, Then What? <ul><li>“ A click means nothing. A click earns no revenue and creates no brand equity. Your online advertising has some goal – and it’s surely not to generate clicks. You want people to visit your website, seek more information, purchase a product, become a lead, keep your brand top of mind, learn something new, feel differently, etc. Regardless of whether they clicked an ad or not, the key is to determine how that ad unit influenced a consumer to think, feel, or do something they wouldn’t have done otherwise.” </li></ul><ul><li>John Lowell </li></ul><ul><li>SVP Director, Research & Analytics </li></ul><ul><li>Starcom </li></ul>

  16. 16. The Key to Measuring the Branding Effectiveness Online Advertising is Behavior …. <ul><li>“ This .Fox research is valuable because it looks beyond the usual data used by the industry for media trading. As opposed to relying on the usual simplistic denominators of click-thru and last event attribution, this research centers on consumer behavior proxies that are better placed to reflect communication goals, defining success based on a mix of visitation, engagement and search behavior across a four week period. By addressing difficult planning considerations such as cross format and multiple touchpoint attribution, this .Fox research better reflects the way Havas Digital believes campaigns must be evaluated if the digital media industry is to continue to grow in terms of significance for major advertisers.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Anthony Rhind </li></ul><ul><li>Global Co-CEO, Havas Digital </li></ul>
