L’Internalisation Des Achats Media En France

La data est aujourd’hui au cœur de toutes les stratégies digitales et media et les entreprises expriment de plus en plus la volonté de reprendre la main sur leurs investissements media et digitaux Analytics. Nous remarquons donc une tendance d’internalisation où les sociétés souhaitent intégrer les expertises des agences au sein de leurs équipes. Obstacle ou réelle opportunité pour les agences media et pour les candidats? 

C’est déjà une réalité en Angleterre et aux Etats-Unis depuis plusieurs années où 80% des sociétés ont internalisé tout ou partie de leur conseil et leur achat d’espace publicitaire (autrement dit, une partie de leur marketing et de leur expertise sur le conseil et les médias). 

A contrario, en France, nous sommes légèrement plus en retard. Air France a été précurseur de cette internalisation et cela leur a permis d’économiser 20% dans leurs achats d’espace. Néanmoins, il est impossible pour toutes les entreprises d’internaliser 100% de leurs activités publicitaires digitales, car un appui externe leur sera toujours nécessaire - les agences médias ont pour but de proposer les outils et technos à la pointe du marché et c’est un métier à part entière. 

COMMENT FONCTIONNE L’INTERNALISATION? 


L’internalisation ne pourra se faire que de manière progressive, car c’est un processus long et complexe (on parle même de plusieurs années lors de ce type de changement/restructuration qui impact directement les organisations en interne), qui mobilisera très certainement plusieurs business unit. Ce qui permet aux agences médias d’appréhender et de proposer en amont des solutions compatibles avec les besoins clients. 

L’idée est d’accompagner et de former les équipes du client final pour les aider à internaliser un ou plusieurs leviers digitaux (composantes essentielles des stratégies digitale pour développer la présence de leurs clients sur la toile). Cela a débuté avec le SEA (Paid media) et ensuite tout le programmatique a suivi comme l’achat d’espaces publicitaires, le display et les réseaux sociaux. Cette équipe travaillerait directement en régie pour auditer les campagnes et accompagner sur du conseil et tout le long de la transformation digitale.  

QUEL EST L’IMPACT SUR LES AGENCES ET SUR LES CANDIDATS?


En France, les agences media baignent dans le digital depuis longtemps et leur expérience et expertise est extrêmement forte. Les sociétés auront toujours besoins de l’intervention de spécialistes. En effet, ce n’est pas le métier de la société mais celui de l’agence spécialisée que de se tenir en veille régulièrement et d’investir dans de nouvelles technos ( et les tester encore et encore). Autrement dit, ce métier demande autant de l’investissement en terme de temps que de montée en compétences régulière en très peu de temps. 

Dans ce cadre, l’impact que les agences pourraient avoir sur la transformation digitale des sociétés avec lesquelles elles collaborent pourrait être très large et c’est la possibilité pour les agences média de peser d’avantage dans la stratégie digitale globale des annonceurs. Cette situation est donc d’avantage une opportunité à saisir par les agences plutôt qu’un obstacle à proprement parler.

Côté candidats, de nouvelles opportunités d’évolution s’ouvrent. L’évolution de leurs expertises est impressionnante, que ce soit dans l’UX, la data ou l’Analytics, cela leur permet d’apporter de nouvelles solutions tant en interne en tant que consultant ou directement chez le client. Les postes qui en découlent seront principalement des postes de Media Trader, Traffic Manager Display, Expert SEA, Digital Data Analyst, Social Analytics, etc. 

Dans cette logique de créer de la valeur et de se réinventer chaque jour, les agences offrent de plus en plus un accompagnement personnalisé ce qui leur permet de se différencier de la concurrence.

‘Tis The Season Of Data: Black Friday Is Here

‘Tis The Season Of Data: Black Friday Is Here

It’s that time of year again. Decorations are going up, the temperature is dropping daily, and the year’s biggest shopping weekend is upon us.  Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have started stateside, but they’re now a global phenomenon. This year, in the UK alone, shoppers are expended to spend £8.57 billion over the four-day weekend. But, for retailers, this mega-event means more than a cash injection. In the world of Data, insights gained from shopping and spending habits during this period can dictate their product and pricing strategies for the next twelve months.  So what is it, exactly, that we can stand to learn from the Black Friday weekend? THE GHOST OF BLACK FRIDAY PAST There are a few interesting takeaways from 2018’s Black Friday weekend that will likely impact what we see this year.  Firstly, and perhaps unsurprisingly given that it’s a few years since the event has become omnipresent, spending only increased about half as much as initially predicted. There are a number of reasons for this, but cynicism plays a central role. More and more, consumers are viewing Black Friday deals with an element of suspicion and questioning whether the discounts are as good as they’re promoted to be. This, combined with other major annual retail events, such as Amazon’s Prime Day, means that this weekend no longer has the clout it once did.  However, 2018 also saw marketers doing more to stand out against the competition. Many businesses have moved away from traditional in-your-face sales messaging and some are even limiting their Black Friday deals to subscribers and members. By taking this approach, their sales stand out from the mass market and can help maintain a level of exclusivity that could be jeopardised by excessive discounts. In addition to branding, marketers making the most of retargeting saw an even greater uplift in sale. Particularly when it came to the use of apps, those in the UK using retargeting saw a 50% larger revenue uplift than those who didn’t.  So, having reviewed last year’s Data; what should businesses be doing this year in order to stand out? GETTING BLACK FRIDAY-READY WITH DATA Businesses preparing for Black Friday need to take into account a number of considerations involving both Marketing and Pricing. For the latter, Data and Predictive Analytics play a huge role in determining what items should go on sale, and what their price should be.  Far from just being based on gut instinct or word-of-mouth, algorithms derived from Advanced Analytics inform Machine Learning models that determine what should be on sale, and for how much. These take into account not only how many of each discounted product need to be sold to produce the right ROI, but also what prices and sales should be for the rest of the year in order to make the sale financially viable.  In terms of Marketing, Deep Learning techniques can be used to accurately predict Customer Behaviour and purchases. These predictions can then reveal which customers are likely to spend the most over the weekend, and which are likely to make minimal purchases. Marketers can then, in the lead up to Black Friday, target relevant messaging to each audience whether it be “get all you Christmas shopping in our sale” or “treat yourself to a one-off item”. By carefully analysing the Data they have available and reviewing the successes and failures of their Black Friday events, businesses can generate greater customer loyalty and improve their sales year-round.

MARKETING INSIGHT AND THE CUSTOMER FEEDBACK LOOP

Marketing Insight And The Customer Feedback Loop

As the holidays approach, Marketers are focusing more than ever on User Experience (UX). They’re not only looking at what kind of product customers might want or need but how will it look and feel to them? If a product doesn’t have what you need or doesn’t function as appealingly as others, what good is it? Key elements such as aesthetics, usability, and ‘feel’ are integral to the user experience. Because these elements come from such seemingly disparate departments as Marketing and Developers, it’s important to figure out how to come together for the ultimate UX. After all, if today’s buyers buy experiences over tangible products, then ensuring the experience is important to bridging the gap between customers, marketers, and developers. This, when done right, helps to build and retain customer relationships; the foundations upon which business is built. Design User Experience with M&D By bringing marketers and developers (M&D) together, you create the opportunity for innovation. But there are some key elements to consider when designing UX and it follows four stages. Do your research. Identify needs, spending patterns, buying behaviours, and historical data to determine what it is customers desire. Find out what they want or need and give it to them. This is the role of the marketer backed by development.Gather the data. Using multiple touch points across multiple sources and channels, find what works. What product offers usability and determine how design choices can help to create a seamless experience for your customer.Design your idea and create a prototype. Brainstorm your design. What are its product features, user interface, and aesthetics? Does it look user friendly? Would you pick it up off the shelf? Why? What is it about the product that makes you want to have it? What problems can it solve for you?Time to Test it. Is your product user friendly? What are its useful functions? How does it look? Feel? Incorporate feedback to improve its performance, function, or aesthetic. What does your test market say? Would they buy it? Why or why not? Bridging the Gap with collaboration We can forget sometimes, lost in our jargon and our buzzwords, that it’s the customer who we hope will benefit from our product or service. Yet, traditionally, marketers gathered customer preferences and drove sales, while developers designed products based on those preferences. However, the two departments were often siloed and creativity, usability, function, and aesthetics either got overshadowed or underrepresented to varying degrees. Enter customer feedback an integral point of reference for all parties involved. Customers are at the heart of user experience and it’s their feedback which can inform the user experience. What better marketing insights than those straight from the customer? Working with Marketers and Developers, customers provide a crucial component to helping marketers understand market dynamics. On the flip side, customer feedback can help mitigate risk or issues down the road by providing solutions and helping to resolve problems. the impact on Product Development By conducting user experience testing, marketers and developers can determine if a product is a good fit for customer needs. At the same time, they may identify issues to be resolved which can be learned of in real-time for a better user experience once the product is launched. Each has their role to play in designing the user experience and contributing to market insights for more informed business decisions.  These include: Marketers are part of the design experience from conception to inception. They are responsible for gathering the data to identify problem areas, working with Developers to create a product or service to solve a problem, and gathering data from the customer. Do they like this product? Why? What pain points does it serve? And how can it be made better or improved? Developers are the designers. They must take the information the marketers have collected and try to make the product into something functional and aesthetically-pleasing. Though they operate more at the back-end, they too much collaborate with customers to capture issues and solve problems. Developers test the products, making improvements as needed. Each stage a constant in UX design.Customers offer invaluable data and metrics through their feedback and reviews. The insights they contain as the end user about using the product, revealing its challenges, and suggesting room for improvement, make this three-part collaboration the final link in the chain between marketers, developers, and customers when it comes to designing the ultimate user experience.
