Three Reasons 'Good Enough' Analytics Is Bad For Business »
With so much discussion about marketing attribution recently, agreeing on a definition for the term can be a cumbersome process these days. The IAB defines attribution as "the process of identifying a set of user actions ('events') that contribute in some manner to a desired outcome, and then assigning value to each of these events." Econsultancy's definition says, "Attribution is the practice of allocating partial value to different touch points within the customer journey influenced a sale or another desired outcome." I like both of these for different reasons, but note both refer to crediting all touch points that contribute to conversion. Of course, within the attribution market there are also several different methodologies.

Solving Marketing Complexity through Collaboration »
With the rapid rate of expansion in the advertising industry, it’s no surprise many companies are experiencing growing pains. A recent survey found that four in 10 CMOs feel “unprepared” to meet modern campaign objectives. An even greater percentage (7 of 10) said they fully expect a dramatic overhaul in corporate marketing within the next five years. Many marketers are working tirelessly to revamp processes and realign strategies around multichannel opportunities designed to drive higher revenues and improve efficiency.

Why We Need to Pivot in the Fight Against Ad Fraud »
In recent weeks there has been substantial debate about fraud in the advertising industry. Of course, these conversations aren’t new. Click fraud lawsuits have been a near constant for almost a decade.
In 2009, the Wall Street Journal wrote an in-depth report about hidden ads, prompting the formation of an industry group, StopAdFraud.org, which for a time attempted to create a blacklist of offenders in order to curtail the number of publishers enabling click fraud or low-quality impressions. More recently, there have been widely-reported organized click fraud rings – mostly originating from China and Russia in the form of “Botnets” – that involve tens of thousands of IP addresses visiting hundreds of domains and clicking millions of digital ads. Among our clients, which include large and small advertisers, agencies and ad networks, approximately 16 percent of monthly clicks are invalid – roughly half the industry average aided by sophisticated blocking lists that have been assembled to weed out known offenders over several years. While a 100 percent block rate is impossible, this number is still much too high.

Adometry Combines Attribution with Optimization »
So…my last two posts on attribution systems (MMA and VisualIQ ) were among the least popular ever, right down there with Marketing Lessons from Chernobyl (which, let’s face it, was in pretty poor taste). But vox populi isn’t always vox Dei, eh? I think it’s an important topic, so here we go again.
The lucky recipient of that less-than-stirring introduction is Adometry, which in no way deserves any disrespect. From humble beginnings in click fraud prevention, they have grown in recent years to be one of the leaders in algorithmic response attribution. Their latest expansion moves them beyond digital channels to offline media including direct mail, television, and print. They have also moved from attributing past results to using predictive models to optimize current and future campaigns. Impressive.

The End of Intuition: A Discussion with Paul Pellman »
Measurement is a topic that has been top of mind for digital advertisers for what seems like ages, and as more advertising dollars shift online, it is only growing in importance. Advertisers have always trusted their guts when it comes to connecting with consumers. But, how do we really know that works? Enter data science. The numbers are out there to tell us if campaigns are truly effective, and it's sparking a debate over the end of intuition. Has the time finally arrived for us to let computers tell us what people respond to and connect with most, or do we still need to trust our instincts?

How and Why We Track: Confessions of an Ad Tracking Company »
In tech, everything moves quickly. So quickly, that there are times when a topic gains so much steam that the nomenclature and hyperbole used to discuss the topic are effectively separated from the technology that enabled it (see, “Cloud Computing,” “Big Data” and “SoLoMo”). The latest, persistent example in the ad industry is the ongoing debate about online tracking, a topic that includes increasingly muddled discussions around specific technologies, preferences and implementations including do-not-track signals, consumer choice and third-party cookies.

Some of these advances are shown on the accompanying timeline.

Marketing Attribution: What You Need to Know »
In the early stages of your company, you might need to bootstrap your marketing plan to build your brand. But as your company grows, you should invest more dollars to advance your sales and marketing efforts so you can better understand your customer base.
In order to target your customers, you need to analyze their behavior both online and offline. Before a customer makes a purchase, he or she can have several touchpoints with a brand through print, TV, or banner ads, but how do you evaluate the performance of each media channel?

Worlds Collide! Bringing Offline Data To An Online World »
One of the most complex challenges facing marketers is trying to measure and understand the impact offline or online marketing has on purchases, regardless of where they take place.
A classic example of this challenge is the difficulty in understanding the value of direct mail: Does it influence a customer to go online and make a purchase there, or ultimately in a store? How can one track it accurately? To truly understand the impact of the entire marketing mix, businesses need to understand what advertisements those buyers were exposed to before making a purchase.

Adometry Takes a Step to Integrate Attribution Data With DSPs »
It’s a common refrain that last click attribution is broken, but what should replace it has yet to be resolved. Algorithmic attribution modeling is perhaps the leading candidate, and vendors such as Visual IQ, Convertro, and Adometry are competing to provide solutions in this area. But these attribution specialists still struggle to make fractional attribution data available to marketers in ways that are actionable on their ad buying platforms of choice, without giving away too much data to those platforms.

Mobile Campaign Measurement: Reality Or Figment Of Our Imagination? »
Mobile devices present an opportunity for advertisers to reach consumers anywhere in the world at any time. While marketers can sense the impact of the mobile revolution, there's no scientific evidence to indicate whether mobile advertising drives conversions -- and if so, how? A recent poll of participants in an MMA webinar on mobile advertising found that 48% of marketers feel that measurement is their biggest challenge in new media platforms. It is likely due to this lack of confidence that mobile advertising only represents an average of 5% of advertisers’ total media spend (according to the IAB Internet Advertising Revenue Report), in spite of the massive uptick in mobile use.

They May Not Know What It Is, But Your Prospects Love Advanced Attribution »
We all understand the imperative of serving the right ad, with the right message, at the right time to a brand’s intended audience. It’s one of the mantras of marketing today. Marketers themselves understand better than anyone the brands they represent and the audiences they need to reach. But marketers can work more efficiently and effectively with insights gained from advanced attribution about the right time to reach that audience, and even about what the right message looks like.

Why Last-Click Doesn't Tell the Whole Story »
The fallacy of the current, and increasingly antiquated, last-click standard is that it assumes that if any media touch point is in the path of a conversion, it deserves a share of credit. There is a fundamental difference between causality and correlation, and only an advanced attribution approach can adequately uncover that difference.

Three Simple Steps You Can Take Today To Improve Media Buying »
Every election year, the topic of dirty attack ads comes up. Pundits chastise candidates about the advertisements and everyone agrees that politics would be better if candidates focused on positive messages. Yet negative political ads live on despite the finger-wagging. Why? Because campaigns have looked at the history of attack ads and carefully monitored their results using very sophisticated approaches. And the data shows they work.

In an effort to maximize conversion rates, today’s online marketers take advantage of myriad channels and ad types to reach their customers.

This leads advertisers to wonder, “How much is too much?”

Adding Advanced Attribution To The Purchase Funnel »
The purchase funnel -- aka the marketing, conversion, or sales funnel -- has long been the backbone of traditional marketing programs. First introduced in 1898, it depicts the theoretical journey that consumers take from their initial exposure to a brand to their becoming first time and ultimately repeat customers. The original purchase funnel, or the AIDA model, characterizes this journey as a series of four stages: awareness, interest, desire and action. Since its initial adoption, the funnel has been updated to include CRM concepts such as loyalty and advocacy, and to address the maturation of buyers’ behavior over the last century, but the concept has largely withstood the test of time.
