When Facebook announced it was overcounting clicks and conversions on its video carousal ads, this wasn’t the first time this sort of issue had been announced. These sorts of errors and bugs occur across all advertising platforms. Worse still, data collection across advertising tools varies in quality and type of data, which leads to further reporting challenges.
Over the last few weeks, Canopy Labs has interviewed a number of attribution experts to understand how they deal with the challenges of incorrect data, bias in ad networks, and discrepancies in reporting. This is a big problem: many advertising budgets are higher than marketing budgets. Without knowing which channels actually drive acquisition, conversions, and customer growth, it’s impossible to drive the right marketing mix… You can’t make the right decisions with the wrong data.Read More
Canopy Labs has now worked with over 400 companies that are interested in optimizing their customer journeys. During our five years working in this space, we have seen numerous varieties of skill sets, data sets, and capabilities.
The Status Quo
In a business environment where the only constant is change, whether it be from consumers or providers, companies need to be able to pinpoint problems with their customer experience and position accordingly. Yes, there are a plethora of tools and resources out there that help businesses improve aspects of their customer experience; however, the tricky part is selecting these tools wisely. One common challenge is maintaining a narrow and focused scope of action that fits your company’s strategic needs. To overcome this challenge, you first need to assess and understand your company’s position on the CX spectrum, similar to a data-based SWOT analysis. You can then leverage your knowledge of your customer experience maturity to correctly approach improving the customer journey for current and prospective customers.Read More
Companies are investing heavily in customer data hubs and integration strategies to build a full, 360-degree view of every customer. At the same time, marketing clouds are becoming more connected, enabling marketers to orchestrate their customers’ experiences in one place, across all channels.
However, as marketers work to map more complex and in-depth customer journeys, they tend to discover a scaling issue with these approaches: the more experiences, sub-segments, and models you optimize for, the more complex the entire orchestration process becomes. Ironically, this can lead to more manual work, where marketers need to create new content and copy, and manually run more campaigns. What marketers need is a solution that can automate the thousands of decisions around a customer’s journey, the experience they should be exposed to, and the content that enables this experience.Read More

Many businesses across a number of industries are attempting to use the data that customers leave behind when they interact with the company, be it online, in-store or both. Even though harnessing this data can provide several organizational benefits, many companies still have not gone beyond collecting and storing their data. It isn’t easy to deal with unstructured data but the benefits are rewarding if you do.
