Media Optimization 4.0: New and improved tools and techniques

The ever-evolving world of marketing spend optimization has changed dramatically in the last five years. Legacy approaches such as market mix modelling aren’t the only games in town; new approaches such as multitouch attribution and rapid read analytics offer decision-makers with more opportunities than ever before. Which techniques should you consider for your organization? How can these tools work together for an ensemble approach to marketing optimization? And how do they address a company’s needs in a fast-moving digital-first media environment? Greg Pharo, Coca-Cola’s global director of media analytics and   chair of the ANA’s Data & Measurement Committee, will discuss how leading marketers are leveraging analytical techniques from artificial intelligence to behavioral economics to enhance marketing optimization.
