Online Marketing ROI Objectives: 

Online Marketing ROI Objectives Brand Building Direct Marketing Online Sales Customer Support Market Research Content Publishing Services

Brand building: 

Brand building A brand is a set of differentiating promises that link a product or service with its customers (Stuart Agres, VP, Young & Rubicam, as reported in the Industry Standard) Interactivity of the web means that users interact with brand more intimately than ever before Brands are old Brands exist in the minds of consumers While the debate rages about whether brands are important or not, clearly more and more people will interact with brands online (Jupiter Communications says 16 million households by 2002) Brand advertising, more than a call to action, banner ads, etc., needs a sustainable visual burned into the consumers’ subconscious

Brand building: 

Brand building Studies show the brand value of an internet banner ad is greater than the value of the click through (1997 IAB Online Advertising Effectiveness Study) Increases in bandwidth and rich media will drive increases in brand advertising, or so some say However, delivering the brand promise is all important too! Peopod, best known online grocery brand, stock and financial performance have been hurt as company lost site of consumer needs (“Brands Aren’t Everything,” Evan I Schwartz, Industry Standard) However, delivering the brand promise is all important too!

Problems with online brand ads: 

Problems with online brand ads Small banner space can’t compete with TV richness Click through rates, introduced in 1994 at, averaged 2% in 1997 now hover at .5%. Users are ignoring banner ads Offline brand advertising works because of the distance between ad and sale. With one-click buying one-click away is the same true online? Online is changing to make purchases available in the banner Online brand advertising is $3 billion (Jupiter and Forrester) TV ads promoting web sites: $3.5 billion Smart money is looking offline for brand advertising 5 years from now, the Internet will be another channel to take into consideration as companies optimize their mix Dylan Tweney, Infoworld, October 4, 1999

Direct Marketing: 

Direct Marketing Web’s self selecting nature means that web surfer’s are more educated and have higher average household incomes Real-time targeted marketing using technology (collaborative filtering, neural nets, rule based systems) becomes possible Service providers for targeted banner ads (e.g., provide targeted Matching ads with editorial becomes possible (think of the newspaper equivalent) Direct Marketing and Brand Building are complimentary Who clicked? What do we know about them? How do you track a click through to a sale across time?

Marketing pyramid: 

Marketing pyramid

Marketing pyramid: 

Marketing pyramid How many and what kind of impressions/interactions do you need at one level to move someone to the next level? How many banner ad impressions yield a click to your site? How many visits to a site yield a purchase? How many purchases (or interactions) yield a high-value customer?

Online Sales: 

Online Sales When we think of internet marketing, we think of e-commerce web sites While typically focused on the Internet, Internet marketing can drive sales offline as well While business to consumer (B2C) sales are hot right now, business to business (B2B) is right behind and 6-10X bigger B2B has a more complex legacy system, product messaging problem, hence complicating the marketing problem Many B2B sites require much tighter contact with channel (broker, dealer agreements, etc.) Marketing is focused at channel and at end-user

Customer service and support: 

Customer service and support FAQs, newsgroups, automated e-mail responses, chat, web-based bulletin boards, complex searchable databases, inbound e-mail routing Still a rich and relatively unexplored opportunity Some Internet intermediaries e.g., Lots of 3rd party products/services

Customer support benefits: 

Customer support benefits Revenue enhancement Serve repeat customers well Potential cross-sell capabilities Cost of maintaining versus getting new customers Cost avoidance Less call center staff needed Soft benefits Barrier for new customer exit: just learned the online support channel Support is a Brand channel

Market Research: 

Market Research Data can be collected from surveys, online registration for value-add services (WSJ.COM) Purchase 3rd part data (A.C. Neilsen - consumer demographic data, channel supplied data - e.g., grocery stores to CPG firms) and combine with web traffic data to understand your market Collect traffic data as users interact with the web site

Content publishing/services: 

Content publishing/services The recipe is simple and well known (newspaper model) Publish content Aggregate eyeballs Charge others to advertise Yahoo, Excite, CNET, HotWired 2,000+ sites accepting ads CPM (cost per impression per thousand) is declining Online Advertising Report

Web value propositions: 

Web value propositions Interactive Personal Infocentric Instantaneous Measurable Flexible Interlinked Economical


Personal Not just personalized, but personal Interactive ranging from real-time to asynchronous Coke Classifieds Companies can conduct virtual focus groups on their site Companies can lurk and learn X-Files Fan Forum Message Board Demographic personalization Technographic personalization ( User’s internet domain (, etc) Browser type and version Time of visit

Personalization Techniques: 

Personalization Techniques Collaborative filtering System learns associations between items (pages) based on behavior (click stream) System then pairs content to users based on what other people with similar behavior have done in the past “Flocking” syndrome Simple agents Bayesian networks Neural Networks (Autonomy) Rule Based Systems Cluster Analysis and Rule Based Systems Combinations (Blue Martini) Fuzzy Logic (NetPerceptions) Genetic Algorithms (NetPerceptions)


Infocentric Data well - need to drink Boring consumer staples problems Tide’s home page DePaul University Alumni Relations Web Site ( Alumni search Job posting Resume posting


Instantaneous News sites (CNN.COM) Real time or near real time marketing Personalization engines can learn on the fly AA Net SAAver Fares program (Timely push) for up to the minute stoke quotes pushed via fax, voice-mail, e-mail, pager


Measureable Things you can measure Click through rates Web site traffic analysis (click stream) Data consumption analysis (not the same as click stream!) Problems Mirrors, caches, proxy servers can obfuscate measurement Hits, clicks, visits, page requests, page views may take on different interpretations to different vendors/service providers Click to purchase relies on cookies which can have problems (multiple users on the same PC, clear cookie cache etc.)


Flexible Database driven sites introduce new levels of flexibility Marketing campaigns can be revised and altered quickly Personalization not only tailors the message, but makes for a very flexible medium - users can rearrange home pages (


Interlinked This is the power of the web The value of the network increase exponentially with the number of nodes Surprisingly, many web sites are afraid of so-called exit links (they don’t want people to leave their site - as if they can stop you!) Aggregators of links - gateway content Link partnerships, mutual cross-linking Linking netiquette - can you use someone else’s url without their permission?


Economical Obvious For etailers, the results are simple: web stores sell much more than the BAM counterparts at a great savings However, marketing costs and construction costs are rising Reduced clickthrough rate e-commerce site construction between $1-3 million (Forrester)

The debate over banner ads: 

The debate over banner ads Some say Shrinking click through rates Banner size to small for proper branding Broadband and rich media still won’t work Others say Brand advertising does work with banner ads (1997 IAB Online Advertising Effectiveness study) Rich media does expand brand presentation capabilities The future says The question for most organizations is how do they handle the mix between online and offline advertising iVillage radio spots and Go network TV spots

Issues around dropping CTR rates: 

Issues around dropping CTR rates Some research shows CTR is related to immediacy. Users click on what they need immediately Perhaps the proliferation of content and dramatic increase of users causes this reduction (or are users tuning out?) Creative treatment of the banner does make a difference Nearly all online users use other media Synergistic effect across media (TV and Web is well known) Tie ads to keyword searches to improve CTR (e.g., travel agencies advertise on Infoseek for searches that include the word “travel”)

Targeted paid advertising :
