Make the Dream of 100%-Marketing-Target-Rate Come True in the Digital Era

Frank Chen
Dir. Consulting/Technology &
Chief Enterprise Architect

The traditional direct mail targeting rate is effectively 0.5-1%. Content-based digital advertising utilizing emerging technologies (internet, web search, social media, behavior tracking, etc.) improves marketing efficient target rate to 5-30%, but it still creates about 70-95% extraneous communications and some emerging problems (e.g., privacy, data-ownership, fraud-click, etc.). Transforming today’s content-based marketing to tomorrow’s mind-based “smart marketing” utilizes integrated consumer-driven digital models to improve marketing efficient targeting rate to 90-100%, removing guess work, eliminating extraneous communications, and protecting people’s privacy at the same time. A pilot client case will be shared.

Ethan Goller
Structural Graphics

As marketers today, we’ve become digitally connected through technology. But, connecting via digital as a standalone marketing solution is a myth. Engagement involves all the senses, and having the opportunity to touch, feel, smell, hear and even taste the marketing message is more impactful and longer lasting. This Insight Burst will highlight many strategies and executions that integrate traditional marketing formats with technologies such as video, conductive ink, virtual reality, and NFC among other tools, that bridge “tactile and tech” into a fully engaged marketing experience.

Coloring an Omnichannel World

Shoshana Burgett
Director of Corporate Strategy and Customer Insights
X-Rite Pantone

As the digital and analog worlds continue to converge, it is not so much whether communications are paper or digital, but rather, how all channels work together to deliver the right mix. For brands, color considerations are not just about an industry, but they must also manage the challenges of color across multiple cultures, technologies and media. This presentation will discuss how brands can balance their color needs of the brand against the limitations and capabilities of the various output technologies. This includes planning color as part of the brand story, as well as understanding lifestyle color trends and effectively applying them within an omni channel environment, where color may appear differently in one channel as compared to another.
