Nothing is more top of mind for marketers than attribution. It’s a complex topic, and there are lots of questions. Should you measure only the first click, or the last click? Should you also measure views? Should you combine view measurement with click measurement? How long should you wait to give credit to user activity?
In this whitepaper, we examine the history of attribution models and dive deep into AdRoll platform data, third-party research, and advertiser survey data to make the case for marketers to adopt a blended attribution model, one that combines both ad views and clicks.
Attribution is critical to marketing success because nothing has a bigger influence on evaluating results than how you measure the impact of your advertising. And in the digital paradigm, almost everything is measurable. When we surveyed our customers, we heard this point loud and clear. Of the 1,050 marketers we spoke to in our 2016 State of the Industry Report, 84% believe attribution is critical or ver

In our second annual marketing survey, we surveyed CMOs in The CMO Club about their use,expectations, and measurement of social media, then compared the results to the previous year's survey. In short, 2009 marked the year CMOs embraced social media marketing but struggled to tie their strategies to the bottom line. Many evaluated engagement metrics created from social media- such as the number of click-throughs to the website or number of fans or followers - instead of evaluating business metrics like revenues and conversion. In 2009, CMOs aspired to tie social to the bottom line.

How does marketing compare to a game of pool? Sometimes you hit a good shot – 9 ball corner pocket – like when you’ve marketed a product and your customer purchases it. But sometimes your shot misses, and you knock in your opponent’s ball. You could even knock your ball into the pocket, but mistakenly knock your opponent’s ball into a different pocket at the same time.
Of course, you can’t predict everything in a game of pool – or in
marketing. A campaign may reveal a weakness that sends
customers scuttling to a competitor. A new product can
cannibalize an existing product line. Customers could leave one
of your legacy product lines to consume one of your newly
launched products – perhaps causing you to lose some
But unlike pool, it’s hard to observe and measure with the naked eye what’s happening in marketing. The way to improve your chances of success is to build a solid measurement plan that lets you define and measure diagnostic metrics.
Banks and financial institutions have faced a spate of regulations centered on capital adequacy since the financial crisis started in 2008. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) initiated a series of reforms to strengthen risk, capital and liquidity rules across banks. Among the important changes recommended are new rules for calculating Tier I and Tier II capital and the inclusion of additional risk measurement components for market risk, liquidity risk and counterparty risk. Despite these changes, a key drawback of the Basel framework is its focus on historical capital adequacy. While being useful, it does not help assess the impact of stress events on banks from an ex-ante basis. Hence regulatory agencies in several jurisdictions have mandated banks to define a forward-looking capital plan that incorporates stress scenarios.
