Data-driven Marketing Strategy: Spatial Analytics for Micro-marketing

Organizations, often in their me-too hurry to adopt a new technology, just pour their old-wine (data) into a new bottle. What was originally called ‘sales-information-system’ in the good-old-days underwent many avatars before it became BI (business intelligence) and then off-late, it is time to switch again. The latest avatar is called Data-Visualization-Tool, and every CIO…

Influencing Behaviour Using Persuasive Data

I came across the story of a manager who felt that the best way to encourage desirable behaviours was through reward and humiliation.  This encouragement occurred indirectly through what I would describe as “persuasive data”:  a table of data went out each week showing the best and worst performing employees.  Everyone in the team could see the stats plainly along with the names of coworkers.  They were encouraged to make comparisons.  This represents an aggressive use of data.  From my…

Charting a Mandate for a Chief Data Scientist

The profusion of big data alongside helpful nudges from Wall Street has inspired many companies to create Chief Data Officer(CDO) and Chief Data Scientist(CDS) roles.

Structural Accommodation

A theme in my blogs is how the "structure" of data - rather than just the "content" - affects what that data can say and is capable of doing. In particular, I suggest that certain structures tend to reinforce certain contents; this means that a structural imposition can have an effect similar to a contextual imposition. Structure is an interesting conversation…

Brexit: Why Projections Were Wrong

Shame on YouGov! Did their survey really miss the outcome of the Brexit consultation? Not quite. If you hit your finger while hammering a nail into the wall, do not blame the hammer.

The media circuit is responsible for having broadcasted inaccurate information. I must confirm that I am in no way linked to YouGov, the market research agency that supplied most media agencies with projections of the outcome results for the Brexit consultation in the UK, and this article…

How to go from data to information to insights and unleash the power of strategic thinking

Recently I spoke with a Brand Director about how to find market space he can win and defend in the long run.

Statistical Attribution & Optimization in the B2B World.

There has been a lot of activity recently around revenue attribution - marketers want to develop a better understanding of their customer acquisition funnel and be able to measure progress against it.  Most of this attention has been focused on the B2C space. However, less work has been done measuring the performance of B2B marketing activities. 

Certainly the marketing automation segment is very vibrant with a large number of vendors (both big and small) providing solutions that…

Blending Marketing Mix and Attribution

Marketing measurement has long been an arcane field - companies interested in understanding how their marketing programs impacted revenue (or brand value) would hire expensive consultants who labored long and hard to deliver complex models at great cost to help their clients set high level marketing strategies and advertising budgets.

 

This worked well until the internet came along and changed the game - new digital channels and online marketing techniques were embraced by…

Getting the Complete Picture from Your Brand’s Social Listening

Social listening has a nasty habit of being completely soft—all about the words without the context of volume and velocity of conversation—or completely quantitative with little information about what’s actually being said. Unfortunately, this leads to conclusions that don’t help you make better strategic decisions. Whichever way your listening leans, you can’t get a clear picture of a situation or your brand online without both the qualitative and the quantitative.
