Address the need to analyze data creatively to yield fresh and robust insights, and how to then leverage that insight to find meaning and gain competitive advantage.
The world is moving towards universal connectivity at a dizzying rate; underpinning this complex system of incessant transaction, connection and digital experience is an infrastructure that generates a trail of data. This trail not only tells us about human behaviour, but provides vital insights into market dynamics, consumer behaviour, as well as the relationships we value and the culture we live in. Creativity and Data Marketing helps marketers access this data, find meaning in it and leverage it creatively to gain a competitive advantage.
Creativity and Data Marketing addresses the need to analyse data creatively, and in particular how balancing tangible insights with creative market influence can maximise business innovation and results. The book clarifies where businesses can improve existing infrastructure, processes and activities, as well as finding new addressable markets ready to validate or rethink market demand. By identifying how and why a consumer interacts with touch points beyond paid media, for example forums, blog content, native advertising and word-of-mouth, Becky Wang presents a creativity and data blueprint on how businesses can make lucrative steps forward to innovate their products, services and communication strategies, laying the groundwork for long-term results. Online resources include bonus content covering analytics methods, evolving research, data platforms and more, and a creative brief template.
In a landscape weighted down by buzzwords and big concepts, Becky has crafted a thoughtful guide to navigating the art and science of data informed marketing. Too often the creative process of inspiration and design is divorced from the strategic practice of insight and analysis. This book is a much-needed bridge that models a new way of working, while bringing these concepts alive through case studies and practical applications. A must read for any modern marketer!
