Experiential by the Numbers
More and more, brands are recognizing the impact of face-to-face interactions in making memorable connections with consumers. But in a business world driven by ROI, few know how to project and measure the outcome of these experiences. In this session, we’ll explore techniques and key metrics of two fundamentally different types of experiential campaigns—live interactions, where digital plays a part, and those where digital amplification is the sole intent.
3 key takeaways:
- How to put a price on one-on-one live interactions.
- Understand four consumers roles and three key metrics for maximizing and measuring digital amplification of experiential events.
- How to transcend typical event analysis by using data to tap into rich views of consumer emotion.
