Reality Check
To do this well you need
MMO + Attribution
• Media Mix Optimization together with Attribution
• One model
• Integrates Offline and Online
• Most vendors doing some form of this
• Historically the two are related
Better Math
Attribution gaps
• Incrementality
• Decay Factors
• Interplay of media
• Math is understood
X-Channel experts
• Data Scientists
• All channel data
• Data Viz Experts
• Hard to find
Open Issues
Data Quality – Cooke Data has Issues
• Idea 1: Leverage CRM data
• Idea 2: Leverage Panels/”Good” samples
• Idea 3: Statistical Identification/Fingerprinting
• Idea 4: Model Cookie Deletion
• Idea 5: First Party Data
• No Silver bullet
Lack of Validation Social Challenges
• Rare in MMO
• Very rare in
Attribution
• No agreed upon
methodology
• Predicitvity
• Models
• Sentiment
Problems

Reality Check
Many people doing within channel personalization well
Far fewer are doing x-Channel personalization
To do this well you need
Cross Channel Infrastructure
• Data source across channels
• Enterprise segmentation
• Cross channel Technology
• Within-channel activation
• The technology is good enough
Open Issues
Organizational Silos
• Different Goals
• Different notion of customer
• Lack of incentive
• Different measurement approaches
Think this will become a large practice moving forward

Tying social media initiatives to business outcomes
CHALLENGE
Company X
needed a way
to optimize
movie
promotion
dollars in an
environment
where every
dollar is spent
prior to the first
ticket sale.
APPROACH:
• Model buzz as the response variable to media
• Determine how buzz maps to box office sales
– Substantial historical database for modeling
– Bass-diffusion models simulate buzz build
– Incorporate HSX data
• Leverage buzz as campaign optimization tool
• Real-time forecasts of box office
• Learnings

Incorporating buzz metrics into media mix models
CHALLENGE
Coca-Cola
wanted to
leverage buzz to
improve their
MMO and
potentially
replace
expensive
brand tracking
surveys.
APPROACH:
• Incorporate buzz into MMO (input and output)
• Results: Buzz showed no correlation with sales
• Caveat 1: FB, Blogs, Twitter, YouTube only
• Caveat 2: Sentiment analysis challenges
• Next steps – refine approach and continue
• Learnings
– Long dev process/custom
– Treat as experimental
– Industry Backlash/PR issues

Getting past aggregate-level data
CHALLENGE
In order to
leverage social
data for CRM,
companies
must get to
segment-level
and even userlevel data which
isn’t available
from most
social media
platforms.
APPROACH
A technology retailer followed a four-step process to
build out a social data warehouse
that will connect to the CRM database.
1. Identify available social data assets and sources
2. Evaluate applicability of assets via three criteria:
•
•
•
Identifiable - does the data source help us connect to a
customer/prospect record
Actionable - can this data source be used to power more targeted
marketing – via email, social, or site content or analytics/insights
Scalable - how large is the population
of identifiable and actionable records
now and what is its expected growth
3. Prioritize social data assets based
on score and review privacy
implications
4. Define use cases to test CRM
program impact

Forecasting Tune-in
Challenge: Making Social Measurement Predictive
Example: Sharknado (SiFy)
Sharknado runs on SyFy
Major social media sensation
5000 tweets per MINUTE!
SyFy plans a rerun of Sharknado
SyFy green lights Sharknado 2
Twitter competition for tagline
Sharknado rerun airs and…
1.89 MM Viewers
Not too bad. But not great either.
Sharktopus = 2.5 MM Viewers
Average = 1.5MM Viewers
GoTH Red Wedding = 5.13MM
