Just over a year ago, Pointlogic became part of Nielsen. This was always likely to be one of the more interesting mash-ups in marketing measurement. On the one hand, there was a global leader in data and research with databases spanning media and buying behavior (Nielsen). On the other hand, there was an agile software and analytics specialist with a big reputation for custom and proprietary solutions at the heart of client strategies (Pointlogic). There are areas where Pointlogic teams aligned with the needs to deliver critical currency data innovations and there are reverse situations, where Nielsen are learning and bringing to market some of the innovative Pointlogic products. This article is a quick catch-up on how things are going.

In the world of currency media data, we understand that everyone needs to see the same numbers. However, for communication planning it is vital that the planning tools used blend with and complement the frameworks and thinking that the agencies work with.

Every marketer wants to improve their ability to influence brand relationships. That might mean understanding that marketing is a “long game” and we have to win people over before they are even thinking of buying. Or we might learn that decisions are made late in the day and the right message tone and channel can grab a purchase just as it is being put into the shopping basket. All this comes to life when we use a consumer journey framework to organise our consumer exploration. The consumer journey is currently a hot topic in media and marketing, as businesses move away from traditional purchase funnels and look for a more holistic way of analysing customer decision-making. Pointlogic and Tapestry are at the forefront of this evolution.

In today’s media landscape, effective decision-making relies on having quick and easy access to the right and most actual information available. As a complement to the various planning and simulation solutions that Pointlogic delivers to optimize our client’s marketing and communication strategy, dashboards are an accessible solution that allows you to simplify access to data and to uncover insights coming from multiple data sources in a timely, resource-saving manner. However, many of the people we work with have built dashboards in the past and were somewhat disappointed with those experiences. At Pointlogic, we specialize in developing dashboards that are used to monitor and analyze the reach and impact of media and marketing campaigns, in conjunction with various brand metrics. Our dashboards are always custom-made, integrating multiple relevant data sources and using the most granular data available, ideally on a respondent / person level. This results in dashboards that allow users to quickly create insights and become experts in their data and not in the software. Now that we have achieved a growing number of happy dashboard users, we have gained some insights on what makes a dashboard or Business Intelligence project successful. We will share some of those insights along with an explanation of the techniques behind successful projects. This paper will take you deeper in the world of our dashboards, our specialization in media and the way we work with our clients. However, before we start, lets define Pointlogic’s dashboards.

Marketers have more options than ever before when it comes to consumer engagement. That should make communication easier, but of course the challenge is to find the right ways to communicate. That depends not just on the category or brand, but on the types of people we are seeking to connect with, and the message we want to put out. There are a huge number of variables in play, so finding the right contact points and messages for a particular audience is where the new challenges for agencies and brands lie.

What factors drive a person's purchase decision? This is an important question that every brand must answer, if they are to succeed in their industry. After all, it relates to many key areas, from how your brand is perceived to what makes people choose your products over a competitor’s (or vice versa). And it’s crucial if you want your marketing and brand positioning to hit the mark and resonate with your core audience. Chances are you’re gathering extensive quantities of data to answer these questions, but there is a danger that you can collect so much that it becomes difficult to understand and generate meaningful insights. That’s where Pointlogic Brandpoint comes in. Utilising comprehensive research, the latest Bayesian modelling techniques and simulation-based software functionality, Brandpoint enables you to develop the best brand strategies for your target audiences, avoid costly missteps and get the most out of your marketing budget.
