SDX – more granular and complex querying of unsampled data
The upcoming BigQuery integration is a planned feature for Google Analytics Premium that allows clients to access their session and hit level data from Google Analytics within Google BigQuery for more granular and complex querying of unsampled data. For those unfamiliar with Google BigQuery, it’s a web service that lets you perform interactive analysis of massive data sets—up to trillions of rows. Scalable and easy to use, BigQuery lets developers and businesses tap into powerful data analytics on demand. Plus, your data is easily exportable.

At 13.40hs cames along Jody Sarno, Customer Insight Senior Analyst at Forrester to talk about solving marketing challenges: How attribution can help.

Clear up the confusion. Marketing Mix modelling (MMM) is the process of using statistical analytics to estimate, optimise and predict the impact of paid, owned media.

Key Findings

1. Marketers leverage attribution to uncover marketing and consumer trends.

2. Opportunities. Data integrations, change management and customer purchase path.

End of Jody conference

While the next speaker begins you can take a look and register at the brand new Google Analytics Academy.

Now Bill Kee, Head of Attribution Products at Google Analytics talks about how to make attribution works.

  • In 2011 multichannel funnels
  • In 2012 Attribution Modelling tool
  • In 2013 Data Driven Attribution

There are two important new integration, the first is Youtube Display Network with Google Analytics and the second is Double Click with Google Analytics allowing to understand the full clickstream (user journey) of a user.

Data driven attribution model.

Calculate the impact of each touch point. ”All models are wrong! But some are useful.” Bill Kee – Head of Attribution Products, Google.

Bill invite Melissa Shusterman, Strategic Engagement Director at MaassMedia to talk about a case study.

Melisa says that attribution allow them to optimise all displays campaigns an not just the ones that drives conversions…(sorry I don’t understand what she wanted to say).

1. Initial Analysis, click throughs.

2. View Throughs conversions, confusing. This contradicts click throughs. conversions.

Key areas of attribution:

1. Last Touch Sales.

2. Attributed Sales.

3. Percent Non-last touch sales.

4. Cost per attributed sale.

Results: The traffic decreased but the conversions with the Data Driven Model increased.

Making it work

  • Set up acurate weighted goals
  • Allow advertisements time to work
  • Dont’ think too small
  • Kill poor performers
  • Sell attribution-  Help display compete
“Data Driven Attribution forces Display teams to get smarter”
