Marketing data: pleasure or displeasure?

Marketing Data:

Or why is the data scaring us?

Feeling overwhelmed


This feeling is exacerbated by the emergence of new data marketing practices. "The digital revolution is creating oceans of data about our transactions, our movements, our habits, our 'friends' and our moods," writes Sylvain Lafrance. [1]. The flood of ethical, moral, legal and economic questions that accompanies this digital revolution is causing us to feel drowned out.

The feeling of being controlled


Jacek Dukaj, science fiction author, explains to us [2] "the big data knows us better than we know ourselves ." We live in an age where technology allows us to accumulate masses of data. It's so intense that the human brain alone can't analyze it. The author puts his finger on an unpleasant reality: "It is not humanity that is the subject reading this data, it is technology itself, moving forward by its own inertial force. The more it advances, the less we understand and control it."

An exercise not very obvious...


If you put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, big data can also be frighteningly complex. Gymnastics of the permanent mind, numerous and unsuitable tools: mastering digital is not easy. A myriad of questions jostle each other: how to collect relevant data without being too intrusive? How to manage recovered data in an efficient way? How to transform this data into usable information? How do you connect with your audiences through this information? Communicate at the right time, via the right channel? It all sounds extremely difficult. 

However, we - Arenametrix - have chosen to feel the potential of mega-data and take advantage of it. We believe it is vital to know how to navigate this sea. Data is reinventing and redesigning all industries. The key is to turn data into actionable information so that you have a minimum of visibility on the horizon.

Who's the Data?

"What if we gave data a soul?"ask INfluencia and the Kiss The Bridge agency in the first issue of DATA & EMOTION magazine [3]. Let's get to know it to better understand it!

Proust's little questionnaire to Madam Data:

Bonus : My motto

"It is not enough to speak, one must speak justly ", a quote from William Shakespeare. I like it. That goes for the Man just like the data! Look! It is possible to humanize data and give it a soul. The goal now is to use their power to strengthen relationships between people and improve their daily experiences.

Marketing Data and Emotion, Marketing Data PLEASURE

The richness of a relationship between a cultural or sporting structure and its audience lies in human contact. The use of data allows a fine knowledge of the spectator, touching his personality. Thanks to a data collection, it is possible to understand his expectations, to embrace his needs and thus increase their satisfaction. By generating emotions throughout the performance experience, structures encourage the loyalty of their audiences. They create unforgettable moments of life. "Data will always need emotion to become irresistible, creativity will always need data to become relevant", says the preface of DATA & EMOTION Magazine. The future of audience loyalty and engagement rests on this union. Some brands reward customers who comment on or share their digital content with loyalty points, elevating them to the status of ambassadors. This recognition fosters their links with the brand. [4]

In practice, have fun!

Think CDP ! The CDP website allows you to get to know your audience better and to maintain a personalised relationship with your audience before, during and after your event. It is a key tool for managing your audiences.

    Posted at 12:43pm, May 25

    ...] Socio-demographic data on audiences, an additional measure of interest to the Dallas Museum, is monitored through the Friends program and is put into perspective with the demographics of the Dallas - Fort Worth area. During program registration, Friends have the opportunity to enter their postal code. This data is then extracted into a real-time mapping tool that can show the number of Friends for each location, as well as population statistics cross-referenced with information from the 2010 U.S. Census. This map provides an overview of the areas of the city where DMA is present or not. While the map highlights locations where the DMA has a high concentration of members, it also highlights the potential and opportunities in places where few Friends live. Staff began an investigation of two underserved postal codes in the vicinity of the Museum. The goal is both to explore and strengthen existing relationships between the Museum and the community in these urban areas, while creating new connections.
