Wasn ’ t always this easy to identify prospects 12 years ago relatively simple
Data was relatively push or pull Uncomplicated data processes
Internet has changed all this No longer push or pull, direct or ATL Consumers are now far more powerful than ever Through Social Media they have a voice
Social media means that consumers can interact with brands outside of the brand ’ s traditional channels…… The Guardian has sold over 150k Apps to iPhone users, but this is all they know….Apple keeps all behavioural data, so whilst Guardian has received additional revenue and exposure, it doesn ’ t know which of it ’ s readers are also consuming the news via their iPhone.
Historically marketeers strived to find that key piece of data; trigger, behavioural to signify consumer engagement Difficult to identify unless you asked the consumer directly: low response rates, high costs Even though direct marketing was targeted…..was also more than a hint of blanket mailing.
Plus they leave data trails that are complex and often disjointed. Simple page query on a website can result in text string of over 3k characters.
Not just data…..technology and vendors Is SCV thing of the past? Series of data marts that speak to each other but not all in one box
Consequently marketing terminology has also changed We ’ re still coming to terms with what these mean and how they fit into the comms process
Consumers expectations have changed….based on experiences with other brands, they now expect (and demand) a level of service from all brands and also have the amplification to voice their dissatisfaction.
Marketeers are having to quickly integrate Social Media channels and online data into their strategies to acquire, grow and retain customers. New sources of data mean that messages can be quickly and easily amplified by consumers….but including consumers as part of the marketing process is a two-way exchange. Whilst they expect their information and data to be handled with respect and diligence as a matter of course; they demand that the information they provide is listened to, processed and acted upon at the relevant time intelligently.
Making sense of consumer data in the digital world
A few years ago there was ‘The Line’… Long lunches, beautiful ads, sexy models, big budgets… Sales? ROI? The econometric model says we need more TV… “We’re brand builders, darling.” Targeted comms, just smaller budgets (& lunches)… Response Rates may be low but it’s profitable… “We use data-driven insight & analysis”.
…consumers interacted directly with brands “ I buy in shop, direct or through an intermediary I’ll ask friends or read reviews in magazines I watch TV, read the paper, have a mobile Identity theft is losing my wallet My bank, the Government & data companies know me Brands or data companies survey me I can opt out or ignore comms ”
The information age has transformed this… Explosion of channels Google, Facebook, Apple etc. are the new data giants Technology, software, social change? We’re all fuelling this data explosion More data for marketeers then ever before… Picture: hardknoxlife.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/digitalrevolution.gif
…consumers don’t just engage directly with a brand 955m Facebook users by 2011 ½ of all mobiles to be smartphones by 2015 400m Tweets a day c25bn App downloads via iTunes Twitter has 13bn API calls per day Picture: hardknoxlife.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/digitalrevolution.gif
Alexsandr Orlov… 810k people who ‘like’ him on Facebook 53k Twitter followers 4m views on YouTube channel & 5k followers A great example of an integrated awareness campaign But is it just multi-channel ATL branding? What actionable, consumer data can CTM identify through these social media? (Why do people ‘like’ or ‘follow’ a fictional meerkat?)Picture:http://blogs.sundaymercury.net/telly-talk/meerkat.jpg
Now we have what we’ve always craved: Contextual Data Likes, dislikes, real-time location, preferences, interest… Consumers openly supply data to brands & friends Brand interaction can be tracked Active Word of Mouth can be measured Brand Engagement Consumer influence can be gauged Tracking technology continually getting smarter
