CHALLENGE:

Schroders is advertising across many different channels which include AdWords, Social Media, Outbrain, Email and Programmatic. The marketing team in Singapore wanted to find a simple way of analyzing the customer journeys without any bias and double-counting of conversions across different channels.
Having a media and agency independent partner to analyze key performance indicators such as efficiency of the ad-spend across channels (CPA) was important too, as the company is moving more and more into outcome driven campaigns with call to actions goals such as form submissions

“One reason we chose Windsor.ai is because of their independence of any publishers or media companies.” said Isaac Poh, Asia Pacific Digital Marketing Lead. “It brings real transparency into our media-buy.”

THE SOLUTION:

Bringing visibility and transparency into the customer journeys took three steps

  1. On-boarding all DoubleClick Campaign Manager and Google Analytics journey data
    onto the Windsor.ai - Attribution Insights platform to get an understanding on how users convert across channels. Having ad-server data in addition to Google Analytics data allowed us to include view-through conversions in the data modelling.
  2. Adding the costs data from the various sources through the use of API’s and stitching them together with the customer journey data from analytics and ad-server data.
  3. Apply data-driven multi-touch attribution model to calculate the true CPA based on all activity in the customer conversion journey.

NEXT STEPS

Schroders is looking to decrease the CPA on an on-going basis and expand the use of the Attribution Insights platform across different markets in APAC.
