People-Based Attribution: Measurement for Omni-Channel Success

Room: Harbor I

As YoY eCommerce sales continue to grow at a rapid pace, investment in Digital Marketing & digital media buys has also grown significantly. While many still remember the glory days of incredibly low acquisition costs, competition has increased forcing many to question the true value of paid media – all the while, consumers buying patterns have become more fragmented (cross-device, online/offline) and harder to understand what marketing drives their motivation micro-moments.During this session, Simon Poulton, Senior Director of Digital Intelligence at WPromote, will:

  • Challenges: Dive into the attribution challenges facing modern marketers working across Facebook, AdWords, Bing Ads, DoubleClick, Amazon & more.
  • Solution Discovery: Outline and weigh the pros & cons of existing attribution solutions available to the majority of digital marketers, including Google Attribution, Facebook Attribution, and the migration towards the 3rd wave of attribution modeling – Data Driven Attribution.
  • Looking Ahead: Share a vision for the future focusing on predicting lifetime value, evolving the way we look at cost-per-acquisition and the potential future challenges we will face.

*Presentation slides will be distributed following the event.
