The Attribution Accelerator conference, sponsored in part by the RAB on November 30, confirmed that the advertising industry has pinned high hopes to a new measure of media performance, Cross-Channel Attribution modeling.
Close to 300 marketers, agency, media and research providers looked at the in’s and out’s of attribution and its traditional forbearer, marketing mix models. Marketer representatives in attendance included: Unilever, Estee Lauder, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, Weight Watchers and Citi. The conference was designed to generate dialogue about Return On Investment measurement and hear what marketers have experienced and need.
If you think this is just another post on ROI, it’s not. It’s about the future of planning what media is included in the plan…or not!
