It’s a fine line that marketers can cross in the new era of big data analytics. You can go from “cool” to “creepy” in a blink of an eye if you don’t truly know who you are targeting.

In this energetic and interactive session, we’ll explore the current industry trends in media & entertainment and address the technology and talent barriers marketers face as they work to engage audiences as individuals. We’ll also debate the order of the steps organizations are taking in their analytics journey to discover insights and drive relevance. We’ll ask: where do YOU see “predictive” fitting into the journey and how do you define that particular step? - See more at:

How does Big Data & Analytics enable marketers and media pros to personalize the customer journey in a way that feels relevant without completely freaking people out? @graemeknows

Marketing, Media & Entertainment are transforming at a highly accelerated rate 1. Cable & Satellite: Utility to Lifestyle 2. Movie Studios: Audiences to Individuals 3. Advertisers: Problematic to Programmatic 4. Marketers / MSPs: Reactive to Predictive 5. Publishers: Inventory to Optimization @graemeknows gives a vivid picture of an audience and the trends that affect it Analytics Team members at every level of the marketing organization Empowers Takes a fundamentally different approach Performance

Several Key Shifts are driving the urgency to act 1. Ongoing emergence of Big Data – in places we least expect to find it 2. Shift of power to the social consumer 3. Increasing pressure to do more with less 4. Requirement for ubiquitous distribution of content and culture across digital devices 5. Expectations that a conversion from insights to relevance will occur in real time *2013 IBM IBV Big Data and Analytics Study & ODM Group Study of business are not using big data for business advantage of consumers rely on social networks for purchase decisions higher return on invested capital for organizations using advanced analytics @graemeknows 65% 84% 32%

Getting to what’s “cool” by establishing clearly defined win-wins 1. Understanding and speaking to me as an individual instead of a “segment.” 2. Giving me what I want… when, where and how I want it. (aka: instant gratification) 3. Working to keep me informed about why you are using MY data. 4. Being consistent, respectful and completely transparent. 5. Add value and improve UE by making the transition from megaphone to headphone. Fine lines from Acquisition To Personalization And from Retention To Recommendation @graemeknows

Even though this seems blatantly obvious it’s all too easy for “creepy” results both on & offline. Brands that stalk you but add no value Advertisers that “target” kids without permission Inappropriate offers or content recommendations Marketers that are f*$@king stupid. WHY? REALLY? WTF? HOW? @graemeknows
