Ipsos MMA’s Unified Marketing Mix Modeling / Multi Touch Attribution solution enables companies to:

  • Accurately measure and value each marketing touchpoint (campaign, media channel, creative, and device) against multiple objectives and KPIs
  • Optimize all stages of the customer journey, including media, promotions, creative, salesforce, call centers, etc.
  • Target, prioritize, enhance, and build audiences to optimize communications and engagement with customers on a 1:1 basis across each phase of their unique journey
  • Identify the highest value interactions across channels, prioritizing best performance and suppressing influencers of least value
  • Combine customized analytics with benchmarks and industry-leading consultants to drive strategic and tactical allocation decisions
  • Dynamically identify and automate the delivery of the most relevant, tactical next-best-action recommendations into priority platforms based on key priorities and KPIs

What are the tactical questions that Unified Measurement and Optimization addresses with Attribution?

  • What is the optimal creative message for each customer? When and where should it be delivered to drive richer performance?
  • What is the optimal reach and frequency strategy, and how do I minimize delivery waste?
  • What are the most valuable audiences, where do I find them, and how do I ensure they receive the right message at the right time?
  • Which tactics and audiences should be suppressed and reallocated into higher performing buckets in line with business objectives?
  • What is the impact of upper-funnel marketing, and how does it drive efficiency in performance marketing? How do brand and performance marketing best work together?
  • What is the correct sequence for a specific customer to drive loyalty (or key brand health attributes), and what sequences should be used to drive new incremental customers?
  • What unique, real-time, data-informed signals indicate shifts in business or market performance? Are marketing adjustments needed to stay ahead of potential risks or inform new opportunities?
  • What is the immediate next best action by offer, tactic, message, segment, and business unit?

The Role of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Unified Analytics

Given the vast number of digital media touchpoints and interactions across a customer journey, intelligent computational capabilities are required to mine, identify and quantify the actions and opportunities that represent the most relevant value to a brand based on objectives.

AI-based models account for the network of options and combinations to quickly inform and influence future customer decision-making, including how a single interaction within a single customer journey can lead to a positive business outcome. AI recognizes changes in data patterns, learns from the data, and continuously revises recommendations to drive each customer’s next best experience.

AI and Machine Learning techniques enable Ipsos MMA to detect critical interactions between media and external factors (macroeconomic, weather, competition, etc.) and derive real-time marketing insights based on market conditions that exist at the time of execution vs. plan. Successful models need to explain the “whys” and predict and prescribe how, when, and where to connect with each customer.

Data-informed analytics are evolving rapidly. Emerging technologies, clean rooms, and privacy safe environments make the AI-driven data process a critical asset for successful Unified Measurement capabilities. An agile unified analytics solution helps translate disparate data to targetable individuals in a consent-compliant manner, driving value creation across business functions such as Marketing, IT, and Finance.
