2 Agenda  The inherent challenge  Study around conversions  Progressive thinking  Analysis and justification  Understanding user journeys  Behavioural Targeting & User Profiling  The Real Story  Cross-channel targeting  Summary

3 The Journey of the User  Online advertising is generally seen in transient, linear paths  See ad → Click → Micro site → Main site  Can distort overall objectives  Focus becomes about driving through to a site  Real objective is beyond the click-thrus  Favourable awareness and then action  Ultimately a purchase of a product or service  Feed the user where they are  Users are more calculated in their approach  They choose delivery method and customise their environment  The rise of ‘desktop widgets’ – browser is no longer king  The need to speak to the user personally wherever they are Inherent challenge in digital advertising

4 CTR: Overall vs Video  Media Firsts: “What new format or feature can you recommend that will get me the best click-thru rates?” Dropped from 5% to less than 1% in 5 years

5 From Pull – “Traffic Drivers” WEBSITE YAHOO! MSN AOL ORANGE  Average CTR is below 0.3%  Clicks are not pre-qualified Trying to pull the users to your website

6 To Push – “Smart Ads” YAHOO! MSN AOL ORANGE WEBSITE  Average dwell time is about one minute Pushing content to the user, exactly where they are

7 Development of the web  Web 1.0 – Content  Web 2.0 – Conversation  Web 3.0 – Convergence It’s all about Conversions! The big ‘Con’? = clicks!

8  Engagement  Post Impression Activity (Sub-Conscious Acknowledgement)  Impression  No Awareness (No Conscious Acknowledgment)  Click-Thru  Post-Click Activity (Conscious Acknowledgement)  Call to Action  Required Response (Conscious Decision)  Information Request / Data Capture / Physical Purchase ? Shades of Grey Measuring the true response  Interaction  Pre-Click Activity / Post-Interaction (Active Involvement)

10 Impress to Convert Impressions drive 4:1 more conversions over clicks  Analysing post-impression and post-click tracking  Conversions happen as a result of ‘seeing’ not ‘clicking’ on the ad  Downplays the immediacy of initial response with a more powerful brand awareness driver, that produces tangible results later on Note: This is a case study based on one advertiser, 25 campaigns, 340MM impressions

11  Halo Effect: Even standard conversions happen due to rich media path 74% of total impressions were rich media based The Impact of the Impression Looking back at last 5 adverts in conversion sequence 98% of conversion path was rich media based 12345 RM: 82% SB: 18% RM: 98% SB: 2% 82% of conversions were rich media based Conversion Note: This is a case study based on one advertiser, 25 campaigns, 340MM impressions
