Closed Loop marketing, listening platforms, portals and crowd analytics – “The concept of informing marketing and business decisions with insights found in social media data is essentially the underlying principle for all Listening Platforms” source: Forrester Research.
The new economy requires us to think differently: to anticipate, react to, and exploit business opportunities at lightning speed. Companies, their brands, products and services are continuously in the conversations that are taking place on social media sites now more than ever. But in order to tap into the social conversations that are taking place on the web, brands and agencies need to have a powerful tool to track, measure and engage sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, RSS, blogs and others. And that’s why ThinkIT has developed and evolved a powerful customer-centric solution for the digital age. It’s our Closed Loop Marketing approach, and its strength is: listening, analyzing, predicting, responding and fulfilling customer needs while accurately measuring the ROI of marketing investment and quantifying the effect marketing efforts have on sales.
Web visitor behavior modeling
Approximately, 80 percent of all Web sites don’t sell anything. Yet, probably 80 percent of all Web analytics examples and case studies are based on transactional activities such as buying or subscribing to something. You can see why. It’s much easier to demonstrate performance improvement or increases in return on investment when there are hard dollar signs are attached.
But how do you measure success or improvement on the vast majority of Web sites where there’s no direct financial benefit? Take, for example, lead generation or public sector sites. How do these site owners know if they’re doing a good job and spending their money wisely and optimally? This is an increasingly important area for the Web analytics industry to get its head around as more and more of these types of Web site owners are looking for ways to demonstrate value from their digital marketing investments.
ThinkIT has developed a proprietary methodology which allows web marketers to answer the following questions:
– What is the TRUE ROI for every $$ we spend on Web Marketing and Product Education?
– Are our web marketing $S appropriately sized and spent efficiently?
Current analytics tools such as Web Trends, Google Analytics, Omniture etc. provide only a summary level view of visitor engagement. They do not provide adequate business inferences for non-transactional user visits.
Our solution: Approach analytics at a session level. Try to “follow” and “score” a unique user and generate intelligence based on individual user experience rather than cumulative or aggregate stats. Define desired goals (non-transactional) and analyze visit or engagement. Rate a visit based on – Pages Visited (Qualitatively and quantitatively), interaction demonstrated, Time spent (where and how much).
Benefits/answers include: Identify the level and volume of Engagement on the site. Know what part of the site is delivering education and what is not working. Determine what content is driving engagement and interactivity. Fine tune web site goals, events and call to action objectives. Understand how to optimize the Media Spend to generate truly engaged traffic. Correlate traffic to a geographic/DMA level correlation.
