While the majority of MeasureCamp sessions were scheduled in advance for the first event, we are reverting to a more traditional unconference approach for this event. Attendees are encouraged to prepare a presentation or decide on a topic they would like to run a discussion on. During the morning opening of MeasureCamp, the session grid will be declared open and attendees can claim a slot for their session.
There will be a limited number of sessions which will be scheduled in advance, all on topics which would be expected to feature in a Digital Analytics unconference. Descriptions of these sessions can be found on this Scheduled Sessions page.
While attendees cannot claim a slot as yet for their sessions, everyone is encouraged to share a short description of what they are planning. Below are session descriptions that have been shared so far.
User Intent – Using the Long Neck
Speaker: James Cornwall, Shell
An analytical approach to focusing on User Intent and building frameworks and taxonomy around that data. This session is on a method and approach to help onsite optimisation.
Attribution – Last is not always the best
Speaker: Russ McAthy, Stream:20
Within this presentation we will discuss the different types of models, how you use each type of model. And how to communicate through the jargon to explain them to a business person. Attribution should not be a black box – we will open the box and uncover what people have been hiding.
Paying for it
Speaker: Nicholas Redding, Hargreaves Lansdown
Google Analytics changed the Digital Marketing landscape, and opened up Web Analytics to the masses. But as organisations grow their online presence, a free tool may not be enough. At what point do your analytics needs justify the expense of a paid solution? And how do you build a business case to secure funding?
Commercial analytics for non-profits
Speaker: Temina Moledina, WaterAid
Commerical analytics should inform marketing campaigns, conversion optimisation and product development but often this doesn’t happen. What are the challenges that non-profit organisations face in developing their commercial analytics? And what can we do both in-house and agency side to make the most of the opportunities available?
Customer Lifetime Value
Speaker: Yali Sassoon, SnowPlow
This will cover:
- Why customer lifetime value is important for informing marketing spend for acquiring new customers and up-selling existing customer
- Challenges associated with measuring and forecasting customer lifetime value
- Tools and techniques for overcoming those challenges, and how these vary for different types of business.
The Future for MeasureCamp
Speaker: Peter O’Neill, L3 Analytics (and founder of MeasureCamp)
This will be the second MeasureCamp in London. Anyone interested in organising future MeasureCamps, in London or anywhere else in the world or just giving their feedback is welcome to come along and be involved in discussions.
Measuring Content Marketing
Speaker: Adrian Kingwell, Mezzo Marketing
Is our content marketing effective? What metrics should we use? This session will challenge the current KPIs for content marketing and propose a better way to measure success.
Attribution analysis vs attribution modelling
Speaker: James Gurd, Digital Juggler
The goal of this session is to discuss what attribution analysis and modelling really mean and how they can be applied to help businesses make intelligent decisions. The first step will be to define the business questions and the commercial imperative for this work. The intended output is a sharing of knowledge, opinions and experience to help people better understand the difference between analysis & modelling.
Getting to the People behind the Keywords
Speaker: Carmen Mardiros, Mardiros Marketing
Popular keyword analysis techniques often lead to more questions than insights. This is because they’re numbers-focused rather than people-focused. As most good SEOs know, the power of keywords lies in the underlying intent of the searcher. But there is little information for us, practitioners, on how to actually determine meaning and intent in large keyword portfolios (often hundreds of thousands of rows).
In this session, I’ll show one possible approach for breaking down keyword portfolios into different intentions using the meaning of keyphrases. It is my hope that we can develop an analytical approach that applies to various verticals and is practical to use with large sets of data.
The five gravest threats to our future as Digital Analytics
Speaker: Andrew Morris, Gaia Insight at The Group
Andrew will debate and discuss what are the major threats to our industry. You can get a flavour of this session by reading his interview on the blog.
Does anyone outside this room care about Web Analytics
Speaker: Charles Meaden, Digital Nation
While ‘analytics’ is this years management buzz word, are some companies and agencies just paying lip service to it? This session will investigate whether this is a common problem among attendees and invite attendees to offer some ideas to getting round this.
Problem solving using AB/MVT or how to increase cross-sell revenue without impacting bookings
Speaker: Guillaume Lombard, WebTrends
In this session I will present a case study on how AB/MVT can be used to increase cross-sell revenue without impacting bookings providing that you have a decent strategy and know where you are going
This session will cover
- Defining goals and KPIs (and how to stick to them)
- Coming up with hypothesis and test ideas
- Learning from results and feed them back to your roadmap
The Digital Analytics Association (DAA)…What’s in it for me?
Speaker: John Lovett, President DAA (and Web Analytics Demystified)
The DAA has been advocating for the web and digital analytics community since 2004, but are they really representing a global perspective? Many think not. During this session, John Lovett President of the DAA, will lead a lively discussion about how the DAA believes its currently serving global members and then open the floor for debate about how it could be doing better. Everyone is encouraged to join including: DAA members, industry association skeptics, and the vehemently opposed. We welcome your input to help us understand how the DAA can support UK and global members.
Discovering the WHY, not just the WHAT
Speaker: Simon Robinson, SessionCam
The why behind the what, a somewhat tired adage now days. I’m keen to open the discussion up to look into the ways we investigate and resolve site and customer experience issues on a day to day basis, the tools we use and of course introduce some of the approaches we have seen in practise.
