I. VANGUARD'S APPROACH TO MEASUREMENT AND QUANTIFYING ROI (9:30-10:30AM)
Vanguard, a 35-year-old investment-management firm, is owned by its shareholders and all of its funds are operated at-cost. The company works hard to return profits to its customers, meaning costs, including advertising, are highly scrutinized. Pinching pennies is part of the culture at Vanguard where copy machines even feature signage requesting that users pay 5 cents for personal copies! Michael Ma, Head of Retail Advertising and Prospect Marketing – The Vanguard Group and Kevin Laughlin, Assistant to the Founder – The Vanguard Group will share how he embraces this challenge when making the case for marketing investment and share how Vanguard measures and quantifies ROI.

II. KRAFT MIO COLLABORATES IN PRODUCT AND MARKETING MEASUREMENT INNOVATION FOR SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH (10:30-11:30AM)
Kraft MiO launched in 2011 and created a whole new beverage category. Still, while MiO was well received, Kraft was not certain whether MiO advertisements were creating the return on investment the brand had hoped. In doing a detailed analysis of the results, the team was able to identify what was working and not working and the "why" behind it. Key to the understanding was the use of "buyergraphics" and as a result, Kraft MiO was able to secure additional advertising dollars and was able to drive incremental sales. In this case study, Mike Boehme, Director CIS Analytics, Beverages – Kraft Foods and Leslie Wood, Chief Research Officer – Nielsen Catalina Solutions will uncover the process by which various methodological approaches were explored, proven successful, and now guide future media planning and investments for advertising campaigns.
