Before Beacons Use Mobile to Target Consumers
The key here is a metric called store visitation rate, which comes close to closing the loop for understanding the ROI and offline performance driven by digital marketing. Marketers can monitor how often a particular control group visits a brick-and-mortar store, and then compare that to a test group to see if exposure leads to in-store visits. This is consumer-level data that can be used to target consumers on another device, as well as optimize campaigns. Learn more
Geneva, Switzerland – The presentations from the Promotion Optimization Institute’s inaugural Summit May 12-13, 2015 at the Hotel President Wilson, in Geneva, CH are now available on the POI website. Attendees from over 17 countries attended the event, which brought together a range of stakeholders including leading CPG Brands, Retailers, Academia, and Technology. These cross-functional group of executives convened over one of our industry’s largest looming issues: how innovators must collaborate — and continuously improve — to provide the highest return on promotional investment, common to all in the store, and at the click of a button. “Thank You for a fantastic POI summit in Geneva, this was really executed to perfection in sublime surroundings” said Soren Sondergaard from LEGO. “Just a quick note post a great POI (event/location both raised the bar) – I thought the mix and schedule of sessions worked well and the hotel quality brought a great feel to both the event and the attendee experience” said Trevor Barrett of Premier Foods. Featured keynotes and speakers identified areas of need or growth in mobile, revenue management, retail execution, trade promotion, and collaboration education in front of an audience with various perspectives – sales, marketing, finance, supply chain, planning, analytics, and academics commingled. Challenges and solutions shared space to invite realizable change in the European, and global market through new partnerships and collaborations.
Exceptional case studies from Unilever, Coca-Cola, LEGO, Sequoya, Dr. Oetker, Nielsen, Gartner, Kantar, and otherpresentations from the POI Global Summit may be found here. The annual POI Global Summit is being planned now. Please reach me personally to reserve your place at the table at email@example.com
Next week POI will be at Saint Joseph’s University to graduate the latest class of Certified Collaborative Marketers, plus welcome new candidates that will reshape the way manufacturers and retailers will engage, and drive profitable growth.
