Opening keynote speaker

A Thousand Ways to Say Hello

Tony Chapman, Founder and CEO, Capital C, Canada

A wave of disruptive change is rendering conventional marketing strategy obsolete. Amazon has become the world's largest vending machine, consumers are armed with super powers, and the internet is everywhere. Retail is saturated, media is fragmented, clicks are overrunning the bricks, and working dollars have to work harder.
Tony Chapman, Founder and CEO of Award Winning Ad Agency Capital C, TV Personality and marketing thought leader sees an unprecedented opportunity for entrepreneurs who have the courage to disrupt this disruption.
His new keynote – 'A Thousand Ways to Say Hello', is targeted for organizations large and small, local or global, who want to engage and change their consumer behavior by creating arresting narrative that satisfies the consumers insatiable appetite for relevant content, timed precisely to match their connection to the grid.

Setting the Scene - Firestarters

The Future Foundation Digital Download
The latest and greatest in the world of digital

Richard Nicholls, Account Director, Future Foundation, UK

The Future Foundation presentation, tailored exclusively for ESOMAR, is designed to stimulate debate, inspire ideas and encourage interaction. As well as setting the scene with an overview of the latest events in the world of digital, several brand new emerging trends will be revealed which are predicted to have an impact on brands, organisations, industries and sectors across the world. The aim is that delegates leave this session enlightened, inspired and armed with the tools needed to understand and tackle the challenges of an ever-evolving digital world.


Digital Research Practices from 500,000 Marketers
Why some marketers succeed with analytics… and most fail

Ilya Lichtenstein, Cofounder and CEO, MixRank, USA

For the past two years MixRank has been building the world's largest database of digital advertisers. By analyzing the websites of more than 500,000 digital advertisers with sophisticated data mining technology developed for this project, amazing insights into cutting-edge research best practices employed by the world's leading marketers can be gained. The enormous volume of data studied permits going beyond case studies to present, for the first time, a truly comprehensive perspective about questions like: Which surprising analytics strategy is used only by the top 3% of marketers? How do major global brands effective decide which user activity data to capture and how do they separate the signal from the noise? Which measurements are actually correlated with the success of a campaign?

First Dimension: Online Research and Big Data

Big Data and the Value of Information
Innovative applications of big data collection and where it could lead

Jeffrey Hunter, Associate Partner, Cambiar Consulting, USA

Big Data is a hot, but ill-defined, topic in the business world. This presentation examines some characteristics and trends in the solutions that are now available in a relatively data rich environment. Additionally, trends in the availability of data and analytic solutions suggest the potential for a “value of information” paradigm in the future.


Beyond Big Data
How big data needs consumer insight in order to realise its full potential

David Krajicek, Chief Executive Officer, GfK, USA

Big Data is likely to radically change the consumer insights landscape. Commentators question the role of market research when so much data is readily available. Does market research have a role to play in this new environment? This presentation argues that whilst Big Data is likely to be transformative for the research industry, it also represents a huge opportunity. Marrying an in-depth knowledge of the consumer to data of unheard of breadth and depth can radically change the way in which we both measure and understand the consumer. The presentation proposes a new framework of thinking and techniques for the industry, turning ‘Big Data’ into much more powerful and insightful ‘Smart Data’.


Where the Magic Happens
The integration of big data into traditional market research

Donald Hodson, Consumer Insights Director, AT&T Mobility, USA
Gregory Mishkin, VP Research & Consulting, Market Strategies International, USA

Big Data research uses large quantities of data to determine what behaviors a broad customer base has exhibited, essentially determining "what" these customers do. Traditional market research methods such as surveys and focus groups aim to identify the motivations and attitudes of a targeted customer base, or in other words, "why" customers feel the way that they do. This presentation introduces a novel continuous improvement cycle serving as a framework that holistically integrates traditional and cutting-edge research methodologies – effectively demonstrating an approach that can serve as a model for market research organizations in the rapidly shifting research landscape.

First Dimension: Online Research (Part II)

Inspirational Customers Dialogues
The journey behind the global evaluation of the 2013 IKEA catalogue

Frederic Gennart, Global Market Researcher, IKEA, Belgium
Tom De Ruyck, Head of Research Communities, InSites Consulting, Belgium

The annual catalogue is IKEA’s main communication channel with existing and potential customers globally. This case study demonstrates how the 2013 edition of the catalogue was evaluated through MROCs in five different countries.
The presentation gives insights into the key marketing challenge global brands like IKEA are confronted with: how to ensure that global communication efforts stay locally relevant. The paper also shows what’s next for MROCs and shares best practices in moving an existing qualitative project online, creating internal buy-in for emerging methods, engaging internal audiences with the results, reactivating a MROC and using a MROC as the backbone while fusing it with other qualitative, quantitative and observational research techniques.


Minding the Product Transition Gap
How digital qual helped P&G solve a diaper dilemma

Andrew Sauer, Senior Researcher Baby Care Technology, The Procter & Gamble Company, USA
Steve August, Founder & CEO, Revelation, USA

Every time a consumer makes a product transition, there is an opportunity to either lose or win that consumer. It is crucial to understand the drivers behind consumer product transitions, as these decisions can cumulatively represent millions of dollars in sales. Recently, P&G’s Babycare division faced a product transition dilemma. Sales data showed they were losing volume and market size when moms switched diaper sizes. Sales data couldn’t provide the reasons for these customer losses during transition. Ultimately, the answers lay in the ground truth of the consumer transition experience. This presentation shows how digital qualitative research enabled P&G to have in the moment access to their consumers and solve a million dollar product transition challenge.

The Client's Cafe - A Business Talk Show

Interactive panel

Making an Impact
How to turn insights into action

Britta Cleveland Ware, Vice President Research Solutions, Meredith Corporation, USA
Carol Jones, Director, Insights and Intelligence, Enterprise Holdings Inc, USA
Eulin Goh, Research & Insight Manager, British Airways, UK
Julie Wittes Schlack, Senior VP Innovation & Design, Communispace, USA
Karla Rains, Director, Customer Relations, MnDOT, USA

One of the greatest challenges market researchers face today is translating the wealth of data about consumers into meaningful action. Market researchers must decide how to synthesize and broker insights across their organizations, informing the business, inspiring action, and producing bottom line results. In this panel, consumer insight executives from major brands will provoke and inspire you, discussing what they are doing today to make a difference and have an impact. They will share how they have come to play strategic roles in their companies: aligning research against business needs, synthesizing information, translating insights into action, engaging their peers, driving innovation, and – ultimately - changing their businesses (and our industry).

Second Dimension: Social Media Research

The Effect of Engagement with Social Media on Purchase Behaviors

Bobby Calder, Professor, Northwestern University, USA
Edward Malthouse, Professor, Northwestern University, USA
Mark Vandenbosch, Professor, Ivey Business School - University of Western Ontario, Canada
Su Jung Kim, Professor, Northwestern University, USA

This presentation reviews how a different form of engagement with the Air Miles Facebook page and their own social media site affects future purchase behaviors. Engagement includes a hierarchy from passively reading content, liking something, and contributing and sharing content. The test compares utilitarian and aspirational prompts. The particular form of engagement of entering a social media contest was also studied. It was found that participation increases mile accumulation behavior over a control group and after controlling for pre- contest behavior. How to estimate return on investment is illustrated. The Facebook test is currently in the field. Explanations for these findings are proposed, and their implications and applications discussed.

Interactive Session

Digital Dimensions 2023
Reflecting on future trends and challenges for digital market research

John Wittenbraker, Global Innovation Director - Brand and Customer Experience, GfK, USA
Josephine Hansom, Associate Director - Global Innovation and Digital, GfK, UK
Norbert Wirth, Global Head of Innovation CR, GfK, UK

Taking a step away from the formal conference agenda, this session invites delegates to reflect on the future of digital market research. Drawing from the content of the conference papers and the global experiences of GfK, the session will explore the current and emerging trends in digital research. This session will leverage dynamic content from the conference Twitter feed during the first day and involve a crowdsourcing exercise to collect and accelerate ideas from delegates to help describe how the digital dimensions will affect how market research looks in 2023. We will end with a roundup of the key trends for market research going forward and how innovation in digital research will produce a new face foundation for the development of business insights.

Second Dimension: Social Media Research (Part II)

Keynote speaker

Social Physics
Harnessing Social Influence for Change

Alex 'Sandy' Pentland, Director - Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program & Co-leader of the World Economic Forum Big Data and Personal Data Initiatives, MIT, USA

In the last few years we have reached a new way of understanding social influence that has let us use social networks to recruit millions of people in a day, change long-standing habits, and even help millions of people make better decisions.  This new understanding is called Social Physics, and it gives us precise, effective tools for shaping conversations and behaviors.

Consulting Special Feature


You Love the Web... but How Much?
Measuring the value of the internet

Emmanuel Huet, Principal, Boston Consulting Group, France
Gabriela Barrios, Other, Boston Consulting Group, USA

The Boston Consulting Group recently conducted various research projects to quantify the value of the Internet to consumers generally and for some specific activities. We anchored these studies on the concept of Consumer Surplus, developing a series of experiments to estimate value for Internet activities. Creative applications of choice based research techniques were leveraged to evaluate specific behaviors as a way to estimate how much value consumers place on different web functionalities, and ultimately to model the overall value and consumer surplus created for consumers by the internet. Beyond this quantification of the value of the overall consumer surplus, the research conducted in 14 countries also provided new knowledge and insights on today's connected consumers across countries, segments and notably generations.

Conflict Maps in Social Media
From traditional arenas to 2.0 environments

Julián Andrés Riveros Clavijo, Innovation Researcher, OMD, Colombia
María Angélica Aya Zárate, Research Director, OMD, Colombia

Many brands have entered the realm of social media as part of their marketing strategies, nevertheless, on many occasions due to mishandling these interactions devolved into conflict, which may scale rapidly and turn low intensity situations into crisis events.?This presentation analyzes conflicts in social media networks, fusing conflict map models with social network analysis such as graph analysis. The research is particularly focused on the Twitter platform, and is illustrated with cases from retail and travel categories. The methodology application can provide insights leading to control and neutralize conflicts in a fast and efficient way, enhancing consumers' rapport and confidence.


Making Your Brand Pinteresting to Youth
Examining youth usage and adoption rates of Pinterest

Caitlin Krulikowski, Research Associate, Fors Marsh Group, USA
Jennifer Romano Bergstrom, User Experience Research Leader, Fors Marsh Group, USA

Data from a two part national survey study will provide insight into how young adult users actually use Pinterest and help marketers determine strategy and teach companies to engage with young adults on Pinterest. The initial paper-and-pencil survey was fielded to a nationally representative sample of young adult ages 16 to 24 in the United States in the spring of 2012 (n=3,743). An online follow-up survey was fielded in the summer of 2012 to eligible responders to the paper survey who indicated social media use (n=1,686). By examining a unique user population slightly younger than the typical Pinterest user (i.e., mixed genders, ages 16-24 vs. females, ages 25-34), companies can leverage findings and create an effective strategy to market to and interact with a younger demographic.


Crowdpower
How co-creation leads to strong product innovations

Andera Gadeib, President, Dialego, Germany

An essential question in innovation is how well the new product will be accepted by the customer once it is launched. Measures are needed to detect opportunities in early innovation stages and to move the right ideas forward in the value chain. FMCG companies particularly need to hit the market within a very short period of time. This research evaluates different key performance indicators with regards to their strengths in predicting the success of a product idea. Subsequently, the best predictor is then taken as the object for a co-creation task to effectively shape and rework ideas early in the innovation process. The method unites qualitative and quantitative methods: consumer ́s crowd voice (let them talk) and interaction (let them play).

Third Dimension: Mobile Reseach (Fast Track)

Youth Mobile World!
A multi-country comparative case study of mobile use among young people

William Bell, Director of Research, International Broadcasting Bureau, USA

New media have been widely credited with providing a forum for young people to voice their opinions. To understand why the new media are such a powerful draw, we conducted a mixed-method study among youth in seven media markets. The methodology was replicated with little to no adaptation across selected countries. The study employed a suit of research methods from a large-scale national survey to expert interviews, focus groups, and ethnographic observations. While the new media did not turn youth into political activists overnight, they did make them more responsive to the world around them, and in times of crisis, more politically or socially active. The study served as a useful background for “situating” findings from follow up digital research in selected countries.


Tapping into Tabletomics

Kristina Bruehl, Manager, Strategic Insights & Research, Viacom Media Networks, USA

Tablet devices have emerged as the leading second-screen alternative to television for viewing full-length episodes, according to "Tapping Into Tabletomics." The new research examines consumer behavior and emotions around the tablet user-experience, with a focus on tablets as TV and the dual-screen experience. Other highlights include: Tablets are a very personal but shared device that’s a frequent flyer in and outside the home. Gaming takes share from smartphones and handheld devices, but most tablet owners are not ready to purge their smartphones, laptops or gaming consoles. Tablets are both gaming and TV devices for kids and often a part of their parents’ “screen time” equation.


Mobilizing your Branded Panel
Panel data quality during the smartphone transition

Christian Kugel, VP Consumer Analytics & Research, AOL, USA
Denise Brien, Research Director, AOL, USA
Joseph Blechman, Sr. Research Manager, AOL, USA

Multi-modal surveys with a smartphone option are quickly becoming a necessity for proprietary consumer-facing panels. Mobile presents the opportunity to reach and engage more and better panelists, and the web underpinnings of smartphones allow the addition of mobile to web-based data collection with little incremental cost. The challenge, as with all new data collection techniques, is for researchers to understand and account for the tradeoffs and fundamental differences between the web option and the burgeoning mobile option in delivering accurate results and optimizing the investment in panels.
