II. KELLOGG COMPANY: CAMPAIGN OPTIMIZATION IN A REAL-TIME WORLD (11:15am-12:15pm)
Digital campaigns often miss their target, sometimes delivering outside of the intended geography, gender, age and/or household income. This is why brands and their agencies require third-party verification data to answer critical campaign delivery questions. But, increasingly, marketers don't simply want answers to these questions once a campaign is complete. Indeed, gone are the days of post-buy reporting as we enter a world where real-time verification means the opportunity for timely course correction, less wasted ad spend and overall stronger campaign results. At the end of the day, the faster brands can understand the extent to which their campaigns are delivering, the more money they'll make and the less money they'll waste. Optimizing in real-time is the next generation of campaign measurement, allowing marketers to see whether they're delivering within their target as it happens.
In this session, Kellogg's and comScore will talk about the rapidly-evolving audience verification industry. Specifically, the presentation will include a review of best practices from Kellogg's, who has been working closely with comScore to verify the accurate targeting of their digital campaigns using real-time optimization, an investment that has paid off. The review will include findings from dozens of verification studies, including examples of target demographics being over- and under-exposed, insights for managing relationships with publishers and agencies during a campaign and tips for how to use these insights to make publisher, media and placement tradeoffs throughout a campaign to generate stronger returns.
