BRAND TRUST: NOW OR NEVER.

As we all strive to figure out what combination of the old normal, the abnormal, and the new normal will define each of our industries and the customer experience they deliver, one thing holds true: people and brands need each other.  People expect great customer experiences from the brands they love and that means ethically using data and technology – no matter what’s happening in the world or what big tech or legislatures are doing (or not doing). In fact, people trust business to figure out tough problems.  According to the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer, business is currently the only institution seen by the public as both competent and ethical.  So, join us as we discuss this critical moment in time and the dos and don’ts for brands dependent on the ethical use of data to build trust with the customers the love and those they’d love to have.

THE NEXT FRONTIER OF MEASUREMENT

With campaigns that span media providers, formats, and channels, marketers constantly need to keep their eyes on consistent core metrics across channels. And while measuring cross-channel impact is crucial to telling a successful story, a more connected world brings an increasingly complex media landscape. Yet, the core of the consumer-first imperative remains: experiences need to be relevant and seamless to garner attention and drive brand outcomes. With that, it's essential to go beyond those baseline metrics to understand a campaign's effectiveness, and without this visibility, there's no way to know the true value of advertising investments.

This panel will convene execs from Oracle Advertising, Kellogg, Wavemaker, and TVision to engage in a conversation focused on:

  • The state of measurement today and the future of measurement across emerging formats and channels.
  • Key metrics to consider when implementing a holistic measurement strategy.
  • Perspectives on open standards and industry-wide collaboration.

SOLVING COOKIE DISAPPEARANCE, MEASUREMENT BIAS, AND PRIVACY ADHERENCE WITH REACH AND FREQUENCY PREDICTION FOR VIRTUAL CONSUMERS

In this presentation, Marketing Evolution will present the challenges of, and solutions for, implementing a cross-channel media impact measurement software system in the age of rapid and disruptive changes in data-sharing policy. The media data ecosystem continues to be in perpetual flux. Media exposure data varies in availability of data granularity, as well as variation in the quality and availability of identification of consumer exposure. Moreover, changes to data availability occur with little announcement. In response to these challenges, we talk about how to achieve continuity in cross-media impact measurement with resilient cutting-edge science.

THE FUTURE OF DATA-DRIVEN MARKETING

Marketers around the world face challenges: consumer attitudes and regulatory regimes change; browsers and operating systems adopt new policies; and marketers have more responsibility to manage the customer experience.

Competitors collect more first-party data and go direct-to-consumer, leaving less advanced marketers behind. Join Salesforce SVP of Strategy for the Marketing Cloud Martin Kihn as he describes how the best global marketers prepare for the new data revolution and future-proof their customer relationships.

BEYOND CAMPAIGN DATA: HOW A MEDIA DATA MODEL CAN UNLOCK SIGNIFICANT VALUE

Many times we focus on high level campaign metrics as a way of defining success. However, in this session we would want to help marketing leaders understand what a connected media data model looks like and what value it can unlock; we would look at log files, api feeds, and even excel files to determine media efficiency possibilities. This session will help marketers really think through what data is important for them, and to what level of granularity of data is required by their vendors.

DATA STRATEGIES- FROM OVERLOAD TO INSIGHTS

For marketers, data has always been the essential tool used to make critical decisions that impact their businesses. As our hyperconnected world continues to advance it has become simple task to track every action a customer makes. With this wealth of data at marketers fingertips, it can become overwhelming trying to analyze and convert that information into meaningful insights. If marketers can reveal the metrics and KPIs that are actionable and most effective to their businesses, they can turn their data overload into usable insights that can be used to shape future campaigns.
