Making the move from Big Data to 'Smart Data'

In the past decade there has been a massive increase in the amount of data that is potentially available to marketers.

But simply having a lot of data is of no real use to anyone. It’s the quality of the data and what you do with it that counts.

If I may indulge in the use of some buzzwords: marketers need to move from big data to smart data.

A new report from Econsultancy and Acxiom investigates the complexity of the data landscape, especially in relation to marketing, and the importance of getting it right in the mind’s eye of the consumer.

Entitled Delivering Value in the Data Exchange, the report is based on interviews with brand-side senior executives as well as an online survey of 1,000 UK consumers.

A thoroughly entertaining beginner’s guide to data and analytics

Confused by cross-channel analytics? Bewildered by big data? Stupefied by structured data?

Well I’m not surprised. Who wouldn’t be?

It’s a big world of complicated words, terms and phrases that can intimidate even the most digital savvy of webmasters wishing to dig deeper into the information their website has been quietly amassing over the last few years.

Help is at hand though, in the form of this very beginner's guide.

I have written it in the form of a glossary, as it seemed the clearest method of presentation. Not only is it alphabetical but it should also make logical sense if you read it in order.

This is for anyone whose had a rudimentary glance at Google Analytics, or spent a little time in the Site Stats of their WordPress site, or has a copy of our Measurement and Analytics Report but has yet to open it. 

We call these people the intrigued but slightly baffled. Welcome, you’re in good company!

Digital marketing is a strategic priority for the telecom sector, with an average of 46% of total marketing budgets being assigned to digital.

This statistic comes from our brand new Digital Marketing in the Telecom Sector report, produced by Econsultancy in partnership with Adobe.

The report explores how companies operating in the telecom sector approach digital marketing, as well as the key trends, opportunities and sector-specific issues shaping their digital strategies.

The insight is based on a global survey of more than 200 telecom executives based mainly in North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and inside the downloadable report you’ll discover data around key business priorities in telecom, where companies are focusing digital marketing and technology, opportunities and budget plans for the next 12 months and obstacles to integrated marketing.

How data can be used to take your email marketing up a level

What needs to be done to bridge the gap between ordinary email marketing and best-in-class email marketing?

I’ll be taking a look at our recent report, Bridging the Gap in Email Marketing, written by Morag Cuddeford-Jones and in partnership with Pure360, in which interviews were conducted with digital marketing professionals across a range of businesses, exploring the challenges and opportunities for marketers who are committed to taking their use of email to the next level.

As the report reveals through its interviews, to ‘go up a level’ in email marketing actually means the necessary act of going down a level. Many levels in fact. Drilling deeper and deeper into data, into the organisation and deeper into the customer’s needs to deliver effective campaigns.

There are four key areas which need to be explored; mobile, personalisation, automation & integration, and data. Here we’ll be taking a look at the latter discipline.
