  21. Metrics for the Masses - How improved metrics will redefine what we sell and how we sell it! Daniel O’Neil Pure Visibility Inc.
  22. Metrics and Marketing have been uneasy bedfellows “I know half of my advertising is wasted; I just don’t know which half.” -- John Wannamaker, ca 1910 “The time has come when advertising in some hands has reached the status of science.” -- Claude Hopkins, 1923 85 years later...
  23. Market Measurement has grown explosively thanks to Google Analytics A free tool that allows detailed traffic profiles • at a level of quality second only to high-cost products like Omniture’s SiteCatalyst or WebTrends Business-oriented data, not geek-oriented data • Can be used to to make non-intrusive inquiries • into your clients and visitors’ needs.
  24. The short-term trend: analytics will be as common as Outlook Terms that are becoming more and more common: • – ROI – Cost per Lead – Cost per Conversion – Sales Funnel considerations – “Stickiness” Web marketers that don’t promise metrics -- and • the ability to explain metrics -- will not do as well as those who do.
  25. The long-term trend: Analytics will be used to create sustained, detailed user profiles Company Product Line Books, some Media DVD Media, some Movie Consumer Goods (Deep) Downloads (Deep) (Broad, Deep) Business Model Brick and Mortar Online Subscription Online Commodity Commodity Purchase Service Purchase Knowledge of Customer Low High High Preference Degree of Customer Low High Medium Feedback Number of Customer Very Low High Medium - High actions captured Length of Transactional 0-1 ongoing, changes daily per login/purchase or history and weekly browse
  26. How will the business model change? • Increasingly commodities become monetized through services. The Amazon and Netflix web properties are services that contribute to the sale of commodities. - Amazon’s customer retention in 2002 was 60%; in 2004 it was 78%. • Increase in measurable “Micropurchase” business models – Subscriptions and Serials – Tracked sampling offerings and price-reduced to get data – Attribute bundling (enrich what a product is by adding reviews, friend recommendation, etc.)
  27. These ideas are not new, but they have been slow to grow. Netflix’ model has been mature since about 2003; • Amazon’s model continues to evolve, but reached Netflix’ standard around 2005-2006. Then they surpassed it! Traditional merchandising companies have been slow • to catch up because in order to make it work, a measurable, superior SERVICE has to be the core goal of any website. It doesn’t have to be “High Tech”, but the vision has • to be clearly defined and supported by the organization -The Ann Arbor District Library gets it, but Target doesn’t!
