Laurie Naspe, Director Strategic Insights, Quantcast
Rune Mortensen, Managing Director, Basis Research
Quantcast and Basis Research will exclusively unveil results from a recently completed global research study which measured the role that brands, advertising and other touchpoints play in shaping purchase decisions across 8 product categories. This longitudinal study followed 2257 consumers in the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany and Italy, using digital diaries during a 4-week period before a purchase. This innovative methodology allowed the capturing of in-the-moment interactions, brand touchpoints, consumer behaviour and sentiment before and after a purchase. This research will provide media buyers and sellers with a new perspective on consumer behaviour as it relates to purchasing, the various decision pathways that consumers follow in making their brand choices, and the major points of influence along the way. Laurie and Rune will uncover the findings for the first time in this session. Don’t miss out!

Successful brands in the age of the audience will be like ‘bamboo’, with firm brand roots but the flexibility to bend in the wind, sensitive to their audience interests and needs, quickly. Being ‘bamboo’, is about audience-led brand ideas that live at the intersection of creativity, data and technology. Delivered at speed and enabled by a creative culture of collaboration. Easy to describe, blissful to imagine, but bloody hard to do.
This panel will discuss the future of advertising in an age where we focus on the consumer, and use data to drive decisions both from a creative and media perspective.

Digital data has traditionally been used for buying media but this is changing as we begin to surface relevant insights about real time consumer behaviour.
