User-Centric Analytics (MeasureCamp Talk)

  1. 1. USER-CENTRIC ANALYTICS JanTichý – @jantichy – tichy@medio.cz
  2. 2. TODAY • Tracking cookies, not users (multiple devices, reinstall, cookie deletion) • Multiple users on one single computer • Losing user history, context, multichannel, Customer LifetimeValue • Usually tracking sessions, not visitors • Weak cross-domain and cross-site tracking • No individual user data in Google Analytics • No or weak link to other tracking systems • ROPO effect, order cancellations, refunds • Impact on remarketing, personalisation, e-mailing, customer care • Analytics, multichannel, campaign effectiveness
  3. 3. Web 1 Web 2 Callcentrum CRM Offline store +420123456789 JanTichý

  4. 4. GOOGLE ANALYTICS CID • Stored automatically in cookies • I can send it along with order/user info into CRM or shop and use it for measurement protocol hits • Unable to get data from GA for given CID • Represents only one isolated browser, not user! • By itself, not helpful at all for us
  5. 5. IDEAL WORLD • Multichannel funnels, campaign evaluation • Purchase history, user behavior, Customer LifetimeValue • ROPO effect • Segmentation • Retargeting • E-mailing • Personalisation and recommendations

  7. 7. HOWTO IDENTIFY A USER • He introduces himself – login, contacts submit… • Submitting promo code, loyalty card • Click through newsletter link • Ex-post contacts acquiring on hotline or store • 3rd party data– Google, Facebook login • Heuristics, hints, signals, probability
  8. 8. GOOGLE ANALYTICS USER-ID • Need to identify an user by myself • I have to store the id and repeatedly send with each hit • Limited to a cookie and browser • No backward recalculation! • Hard to get individual user data from GA
  9. 9. MY OWN COOKIE • Generate right with first hit of the (anonymous) user • Send to GA with each single hut • Store to my eshop/crp along with other user/order info • Usable for segmentation, remarketing, user data import to GA • Getting individual info about a user from GA
 • Still limited to single device, browser, cookies • Still no overwiew across all user activities • Still losing most of important information and context
  10. 10. IDENTITY AGGREGATOR (IDA) • Auto creating and tracking BrowserID cookies • Matching all browsers and devices together • Coupling all users actions across data sources • Signals, heuristic and probability hinting
