An evolutionary change for Shopping Ads on Google is upon us, yet many searchers will never notice the difference. For the first time since Froogle, effective immediately, Google is allowing unpaid product listings on its “shopping properties” (the Google Shopping Tab). You heard that right, free product advertising on Google Shopping! No need to create a new feed, just ensure you are opted-in to “surfaces across Google”. Why make this change? The answer is two-fold. In the short-term, amidst this COVID-19 pandemic, Google wants to help businesses combat the decline in brick and mortar sales. This change offers all brands the opportunity to sell on Google Shopping, without the need for investment in ad spend. The update was scheduled for later in the year and would have most likely been a slower roll out, but in response to the challenges in the retail sector due to the coronavirus pandemic, Google advanced their plans. From a long-term perspective, this is the next phase in competing with Amazon. Products on Google Shopping are no longer limited to brands with big budgets, allowing new and unique products to be displayed, which may better suit consumers' needs, creating an improved user experience and increasing the likelihood of a purchase. In addition, Google added PayPal to its list of eCommerce partners, opening the door to future advancements and the possible expansion of “Buy on Google”, a feature where the user completes their purchase without ever leaving the Google Shopping property. Via increased relevancy, increased conversion rate, and decreased barriers to entry, Google is hedging their bets that over time, this will create a behavioral change away from both their large eCommerce competitors and their new social eCommerce competitors. For the consumer As a result of the lowered barrier to entry for retailers (zero cost), consumers will get more choice in product selections due to the increased number of brands on the page. However, there is another factor which increases consumer choice. With large retailers, typically, only about 30% of their feed inventory is displayed due to the nature of Paid Advertising and the drive for efficiency in spend. For the other 70% of inventory, the performance metrics simply did not make Google Shopping a viable solution. For example, the cost of listing a $4 nail glue in Google Shopping outweighs the potential profit so advertising would need to be paused. However, Unpaid Product Listings open up this 70% of inventory as there is no cost. The consumers truly benefit from this update, getting more variety both in overall brand as well as individual product selection. But what does this mean for you as a retailer? There will be an impact to Performance, Reporting, and Optimization, but it is up to you to ensure it is a positive impact. Performance – The Paid Media real estate on Google Shopping properties will be dramatically reduced. Similar to the removal of the right rail ads in 2016, we can predict that this will lead to instability in product visibility (ad position and impressions) and inflating CPCs, as advertisers battle for the limited ad slots which remain. These limited ad slots will be housed in their own carousel at the top of the page while the new organic listings will populate underneath. However, it is worth remembering that there is now an abundance of free listings to take advantage of, so the potential increase in CPC will likely be offset by the free clicks elsewhere on the page. Additionally, as it stands, the majority of paid traffic still flows via the traditional SERP on Google.com, which remains unaffected by this change. With new products, more choice, and possibly lower price points, CTR could potentially drop. Google’s plan is to increase product relevancy for the consumer by allowing free product listings thus directly competing for that all-important “click”. While CTR is an advertising metric, what you, as a retailer, truly care about is qualified site traffic. This change may allow your brand to serve in both a Paid slot and a Free slot, therefore increasing the likelihood of incremental site traffic, offsetting any decrease in CTR. Also, at the present time, the majority of traffic is via the SERP which remains unaffected. Reporting – Currently, reporting for the Unpaid Product Listings sits within Google’s Merchant Center and exclusively focuses on clicks. For tracking and analysis purposes, you will likely want to enable auto-tagging or build custom click parameters. It is important to note that organic clicks will be aggregated together in one-line item. Google is working on the ability to segment data by category, product, and brand. As Google Shopping becomes more comparable to marketplaces like Amazon, it will be beneficial for retailers to aggregate metrics to share insights and inform strategy. Reporting will remain challenging in the short term. However, we must bear in mind this was an accelerated roll out by Google and that more functionality is to come over the next few weeks and months. Optimization – This update opens the doors to a new and exciting world of Shopping Feed SEO. Like Google Shopping Ads, these new unpaid listings will be powered by a product data feed managed through Google Merchant Center. We previously mentioned that CPCs are likely to increase, CTR may possibly decrease, and the best way to combat these from an overall business perspective is by maximizing visibility in the unpaid slots but this is a challenge without a robust data feed solution. The quality of your product data (paid and organic) is directly correlated to higher visibility on the SERP so your feed set-up matters now more than ever. A “functional” feed is not enough to drive success. But what differs between a functional feed and a best-in-class feed? Merchant quality, product data quality, and user engagement are three of the most important factors, but are also just the tip of the iceberg. From an Organic and Structured Site Data standpoint, there are a few elements that should be considered essential: ● The feed should use only Canonical URLs to avoid pulling information from the wrong version of a page. ● Schema Markup should be utilized and must match the contents of the page. ○ Pricing Schema should be considered, especially for any sale price items Retailers need to consider developing a technology-based frame of thought that outlines a strategy to achieve performance goals, layered into the role and impact of data feed solutions to arrive at that destination. While we expect results of this evolution in Google Shopping to be relatively small in the short term, we believe Google will now look to establish innovative ways to increase traffic, thus increasing the impact, both positive and negative. Unpaid Product Listings are valuable for Google, helpful for the consumer, and can be beneficial for brands as long as marketers monitor performance, optimize toward the data, and increase focus on feed based optimization. Amend these practices immediately to future-proof yourselves and truly reap the benefits. 0

Media 3.0 - 迅雷不及掩耳的媒體行銷科技戰來了,你準備好了嗎?

Media 3.0 - 迅雷不及掩耳的媒體行銷科技戰來了,你準備好了嗎?

科技,毋庸置疑地扮演著人類文明進步的推手,而在講求消費者媒體接觸的廣告傳播界來說,媒體行銷科技的技術平台之崛起與應用,深化了你我對消費者的理解,直接改變了行銷人員在媒體配置的思考慣性,甚至是團隊的組織型態。   過去 30 年,台灣媒體產業經歷了兩次結構性的大型演化,第一次是 1994 年電視環境開放了有線電視台執照的申請,消費者有了第四台的視聽選擇,使電視廣告也成為當時的媒介主流,自此盛行了超過 20 年,我們稱為 Media 1.0 時代。 根據台灣數位媒體應用暨行銷協會 (DMA) 的調查,2016 年台灣的數位媒體投資量首次超越電視廣告,開啟了 Media 2.0 時代,也就是以數位為主流的媒體行銷戰局,正是第二次的媒體產業演化。績效行銷大行其道,以轉換數據為衡量目標的績效優化,揭開了過去衡量成效的黑盒子,行銷人員找到了對老闆解釋數位媒體導致業績成敗的救贖方案,但從此皆大歡喜了嗎? 行銷人員的數位百憂解,其一是「行為的數據」 隨著媒體環境的多元,消費者日常觸及的媒介管道所建構出來的消費者旅程,以及策略佈局的行銷漏斗,早已不是慣性思維下的線性傳播,因此,當付費媒體操作帶來的一致性的績效驗證邏輯,不偏頗單一媒體的數據判讀,直接略過消費者複雜的行為歷程,只檢視最終點的轉換績效來說,的確讓行銷人員找到了部分的解方。然而,績效行銷其以數據為核心的運作模式,在 2019 年的現在,不再只侷限消費者所能觸及到的付費媒體動線上,因為當分眾行銷與個人化傳播的背後,搭著媒體科技劇變的發展作為推手,特別是當 5G 與物聯網的崛起,究竟要掌握到多少數據,才能在這個 VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) 年代,當個有憑有據的行銷策略規劃師,而不是心虛的趨勢算命預言家?「行為」的數據是關鍵。掌握「快、狠、準」的數據,才能在分析上無縫接軌。 當電商紛紛面臨流量紅利效益的銳減,最大的問題,還是出在對潛在消費者的觸及與循環不夠,以及無法全面掌握已網羅顧客的「行為」數據;使得看似有千千萬萬筆的交易資料,卻少了動態消費者旅程中的行為資料。這將導致行銷執行策略無法直接與消費者連結,因為能夠與他們連結與觸發的行為訊號不存在,也就是付費媒體流量所帶來的群體匿名數據,在無法串連行為數據的前提下,就不能直接與個別顧客的身分產生認同與呼應,導致無法在「對的瞬間 (Right Moment)」、用「對的管道 (Right Channel)」、投以「對的意向偏好 (Right Intent)」。 只要能掌握「行為」數據,甚至深入了解該顧客的購買考慮週期、瀏覽動線、購買決策變因,在模擬最佳投資報酬率的測試計畫上,優化過去的付費媒體配置,搭配自有媒體的歷史數據,整合機器學習 (Machine Learning) 的測試與預測,來開啟 Media 3.0 科技賦能的時代,用科技加速數據驅動 (Data Driven) 的策略判斷與優化效率,以達成全媒體管道綜效最大化的終極目標。 MarTech 是 Media3.0 的加速器,讓數據的整合連結得以規模化成長 Media 3.0 著重於三個層次的進化,第一是整合行為資料作為動態消費者歷程的分析基礎;第二是超越付費媒體的投報思維,串聯客戶端自有媒體的溝通管道,將客戶的行銷資源發揮到極致;第三則是突破單一媒體巨擘 (例如: Google 或 Facebook) 的廣告生態系,讓前兩點所整合的資料源,能延展運用到顧客資料。藉由使用中立的行銷系統科技平台 (MarTech),以整合所有數據資料的斷點,成為可供全面佈局的運作結構,透過平台加速整合數據,就能成就大數據的連結脈絡,以因應日後人工智慧 (Artificial Intelligence) 自動化的時代來臨,最終真正實現智慧行銷大未來的理想國。只不過,MarTech 的應用,仍是現今許多行銷人員焦慮的一環。 過去,行銷人員在面對數位化的浪潮,躬逢其盛的當時,也歷經策略視角上的自我懷疑,以及數位應用上的摸不著頭緒;時至今日,好不容易捱過 Media 2.0,也搭上數位太空母艦,但錯愕的是,當現今談到 MarTech,對於那些善於撰寫策略的企劃大師、或是因窄化分工而不曾親力親為的行銷人員,若沒有以數據應用與科技原理的邏輯當作思維的基底,也就無法體會 MarTech 在行銷工作上的助益,例如:如何有效地區別何謂「可行使的洞察訊號 (Actionable Insight)」,以及區別後的執行成效為何。因為這都需要長期累積在動態數據 (Dynamic Data) 應用上的理解與經驗,才能徹底實踐。 我認為當今 MarTech 的應用也就是 AdTech 的延伸,而台灣在 AdTech 的技術已經走了好幾年,市場上也有一群熟稔於媒體系統 (AdTech) 之分析與優化經驗的專家,也就是安布思沛台灣 (iProspect Taiwan) 一直以來佈局經營的優化人才,可以扮演著 MarTech Enabler 的角色,幫助品牌端的行銷人員,在數據無縫串聯的平台下,挖掘更深的消費者脈絡,並在最適切的時機與管道,傳遞最容易取得共鳴的經驗。當消費者感知的所有接觸經驗也被完整串聯,消費者對於品牌、商品、服務的偏好與消費可能性,也能從數據驗證的角度被提升與優化。 MarTech 跟 AdTech 一樣並非空談,若沒有三兩三,光靠嘴上練兵,乃無法驗證實績。在數據當前的現在,成功是有跡可循,對於行銷人員來說,現在正是最好的年代,驗證你的假設,實現有所本的夢想,而媒體科技正是主導這股浪潮的加速器。當智慧自動車、人類上火星,都不再是癡人說夢的二十一世紀,面對媒體科技的新浪潮,身為行銷人員的我們,虛心的問問自己,你準備好了嗎?     0

Future Focus 2019: Searching for Trust

Future Focus 2019: Searching for Trust

In Future Focus 2019, we examine how brands that are built on credibility, relevance, and reliability will see trust as the very foundation for their success in the digital economy.   The digital economy has brought new opportunity for development and innovation in every business sector. While the majority is “good innovation”, we continue to see a significant gap at a societal level, driven by a continued disparity in access to technology based on socio-economic factors. In today’s hyper-sensitive media landscape, how should brands and publishers navigate the notion of truth and authenticity?    We interviewed more than 300 global marketers and leaders across a broad spectrum of brands, including FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies, and used the real-time responses to outline key insights and priorities necessary for businesses to thrive in our fast moving, high expectation digital economy.   Feedback shows that trust is at the forefront globally with 88% of marketers making trust in their brand a priority in 2019. Marketers see gaining consumer trust as vital to business growth with 76% stating that trust is important to keep consumers buying their brand.  Digital will play a clear role in this with 60% believing that the rise of AI will increase consumer trust as it allows for more relevant and personal experiences.83% don’t believe brands will dominate over convenient experiences in the future   83% don’t believe brands will dominate over convenient experiences in the future 62% don’t have a proactive role in approaching online reviews, although they think reviews represent the greatest risk to consumer trust   62% say the quality of their purchase experience and after-sales service will be a priority for 2019   69% think the rise of digital assistants represents an opportunity to become closer and develop stronger relationships with consumers   The report also includes exclusive interviews with global leaders from businesses, such as The New York Times Company, IBM, Microsoft, Hilton, The Economist, Rachel Zoe, Inc., IKEA, and AccorHotels.     Chapter One: Credibility in the Age of Doubt Outlines the role of purpose in the digital economy and how immediate benefits for brands will be bestowed to those who can use digital to build and reinforce their credibility in the eyes of consumers. By protecting the integrity of their brand online, communicating their values, and leveraging the power of technology, brands will see a steady increase in trust of their brand.    Includes exclusive interviews with: Mark Thompson, CEO and President, The New York Times Company, on leading the battle against misinformation and fake news. Armin Molavi, Interim VP Media, Hilton, on trust in the travel industry, social responsibility and the new place for data. Mark Cripps, Chief Marketing Officer, The Economist, outlines opportunities in the new value exchange and the notion of being data-responsible.     Chapter Two: Relevance in the Age of Noise Explores the rise of shrinking consumer attention and an increasingly fragmented consumer landscape. Successful brands will be those who focus on relevant experiences, outplay the influx on digital content, and make the most of the Assistance revolution.   Includes exclusive interviews with: Vanja Mlaco, Digital Growth Strategist, Transavia, on the importance of putting the consumer ahead of conversion, and using technology as a goal, not a means to an end.  Carrie Seifer, Vice President and Chief Revenue Office, IBM Watson and Weather, on the unstoppable rise of AI and how trust and transparency must underpin all action. Laurent Tiersen, Country Marketing Manager, IKEA UK & Ireland, on the constant focus on staying relevant to their customers. Jonathan Foster, Principal Experiences Manager, Microsoft, on how he builds Cortana, using personality goes a long way to building trust, and using art to show humanity to humans.    Chapter Three: Reliability in the Age of Convenience  Focuses on the rise of convenience as it intersects with the more traditional power of brand, and highlights the subtle balance between building brands and designing highly convenient solutions.  Successful companies will dominate by focusing on the convenience of their digital properties, media assets, and presence on third-party reseller platforms.  Includes exclusive interviews with: Antoine DuBois, SVP Marketing Global Strategy, AccorHotels, on the convenience, artificial intelligence and the war for talent.  Rachel Zoe, CEO, Rachel Zoe Inc., on navigating the rise and influence of digital in the fashion and luxury landscape, and why adaptability is key.
