When we hear about the Internet of Things (IoT) we often think of consumer products like wireless thermostats and multiroom speakers, meaning business uses are often overlooked.
The boom in the B2B big data market (from a sub-$100m industry in 2009 to $130bn today) mirrors an enterprise-led scramble to invest in data mining, reminiscent of the California gold rush, accompanied by a similar media buzz.
Essentially, user scoring and propensity modelling are the same thing and they also go by a number of other subtly different synonyms, just to make everything more confusing.
You might have heard or seen reference variously to:
This week's tinder box of digital news has included Shakespeare, Slack, AI (as usual), Vine, a humongous acquisition and Donald Trump (as usual).
Why not read it while eating some seasonally-appropriate porridge with a topping of your choice?
Customer relationship management (CRM) is more complex than ever as marketing channels allow for ever-more sophisticated targeting and content delivery.
So what are the challenges facing CRM marketers?
I spoke to a couple of people in the industry and here list a mere 10 challenges we discussed.
Our 2016 Measurement and Analytics survey is in the field and you can take part yourself to receive a free copy of the ensuing report.
Last year, the survey found that fully two-thirds of client respondents have no formally documented analytics strategy.
These marketers are no doubt still attempting to optimise their marketing spend in an ad hoc fashion, so what needs to change?
I’m not trying to teach anyone how to suck eggs here. Perish the thought.
But let’s face it: some of you probably just smile and nod when somebody starts going on about the merits of ‘second-party data’.
Sure, everyone knows what these terms mean in principle, but in this post I’m going to break down three key types of data – first-party, second-party and third-party – and explain what they all mean, where the different data sets come from and the pros and cons of each.
More data is not necessarily a good thing.
It needs to be actionable, providing marketers with insight. If it's not, then perhaps now is the time to invest in new technology.
It was International Women’s Day this week, so you probably think I’m going to take an inspiring quote from a woman and replace part of it with ‘the weekly Econsultancy digital marketing stats round-up’ because that’s basically the only joke I’ve got.
Attention spans are evolving, and by that I mean they’re shrinking.
Halfway through writing that sentence my phone dinged and I saw a tweet pop up that looked quite interesting.
15 minutes of internet rabbit hole-diving later and I remembered I was supposed to be writing a sentence.
I’m not alone in this, and one of the talks at our Creative Programmatic event last week that particularly interested me was from Innovid’s Tal Chalozin, who was there to discuss how video advertisers can cater for the modern-day online attention span.
Some people seem slightly alarmed by the rise of automation in marketing.
Is it the first step towards all of us being replaced by robots that will eventually enslave humankind and force us to oil their joints until the end of time?
While that might have been a lame attempt at a joke, it is actually very relevant to the Creative Programmatic event I attended yesterday, which was all about how this largely automated channel needn’t spell the end of human creativity in marketing.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – an EU-wide overhaul of consumer data laws aimed at strengthening the protection of people’s data privacy – was announced at the tail end of 2015.
The new laws won’t be finalised until later this year, and won’t take effect for another two years after that.
But in a talk I attended at Data Protection 2016 on Friday, two leading government figures did their best to tell the audience what to expect and explain why the reform is happening.
