Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already begun to improve targeting, segmentation, media buying and planning in the advertising industry. AI algorithms can extract complex patterns from vast numbers of data points, and in so doing, are able to self-correct and learn patterns. The revenue potential that improved personalization, segmentation and targeting that AI provides to marketers is huge.
At HERE Technologies, we are placing AI and machine learning at the center of our products and services. We see the opportunity in automated machine learning to enrich the targeting and effectiveness of mobile advertising campaigns in real time. But the outcome of implementing such technology depends on the quality of data being fed into it from the outset. AI wouldn’t be as helpful if it’s being used alongside questionable location data or audience data.

Consider the many ways that a customer encounters your brand – organic results on a search engine, display media campaigns, social media links, re-targeting on external sites, etc. One thing is certain – consumer journeys are far from linear. They can occur across multiple platforms, devices and browsers. The problem is that organizations are often constrained to channel-limiting decisions regarding their media investment allocations.
Marketing attribution helps you analyze the impact and business value of company-generated marketing interactions to help make the best marketing investment decisions. The challenge is to interpret the massive volumes of customer data that continues to expand day by day.
As social media use has grown, an urgent need has emerged to correlate the information generated through social data with existing consumer information, and integrate it with sophisticated data management systems. This white paper describes how organizations can blend social insights with more-traditional data in an integrated customer data hub to optimize social strategies and create outreach efforts, new products, and campaigns grounded in real-time, repeatable, automated, and scalable analysis.
Social media is rising beyond just likes and retweets. Social media continues to shape the digital marketplace with how brands can engage their consumer. Whether its through a sponsored link on Twitter, an inline ad with Facebook, or retail placement on Pinterest, an understanding of the current trends will go a long way to producing a successful social media marketing campaign.
In this paper, we explore the challenges of quantifying social marketing’s financial and nonfinancial ROI and how businesses are employing strategic measurements that reveal dividends beyond the bottom line.

People control their own consumer journeys. Consumers expect a borderless world in which they roam freely between a brand’s social media channels, email campaigns, blogs and e-commerce site, effortlessly buying things that catch their eye. It’s led to a sporadic, personalized shopping journey that frequently begins on digital touchpoints that weren’t built for commerce.
That’s made it increasingly complex for brands hoping to meet customers’ needs and measure the results of their marketing strategies.
At the center of this new customer-driven revolution is visual content. Images and videos play starring roles in the decisionmaking process, and provide consumers with a whole new level of inspiration and knowledge. Every picture and video clip is now the entrance to a digital storefront, meaning brands can use them to drive not only engagement but revenue.
