During Advertising Week New York

From Top Down to Bottom Up

Long before John Wannamaker famously quipped that half his ad spend is wasted, marketers have been struggling to solve his dilemma:  to identify “which 50%?” The dark art of attribution, of deciding which ad exposures where and when drive results, has undergone its own disruption of late. Traditional econometric and marketing mix modeling now meet digital approaches that leverage user-level data and path analysis to get a more granular view of the conversion process. At our inaugural OMMA Attribution we explore how marketers are just beginning to bring the pieces together. It is not only a matter of how to measure but deciding what to measure. How can top down or bottom up approaches complement one another in future modeling? What do we know about the digital and TV dynamic?  How can agencies and brands distinguish among the solutions now on offer? What will it take to move us towards total attribution solutions that account for all communications efforts on and offline? 

At OMMA Attribution during Advertising Week, we start to build the post-Wannamaker models of future media buying.
