Today In Communication History

On this date in 1984, CBS television debuted Mickey Spillane’s ‘Mike Hammer’ starring Stacy Keatch.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

Research Notes
Business Leaders Increase New Media Budgets, Not Legacy Media
Fifty-Six (56%) percent of business leaders are expecting to increase their marketing budgets this year, report Selligent and StrongView in newly-released survey data. Email appears to be a primary recipient of increased budgets, according to the StrongView report and a separate study from Campaigner. Six in ten respondents reported planning to increase their email marketing spending this year, the broadest consensus of the all the channels measured. Closely following were social media (56.3% increasing spend) and display advertising (55.9%), with mobile marketing spend also expected to climb for a slight majority (51.9%) of respondents. These are the for the most part more buoyant expectations than found in last year’s survey, in which only one channel (email) was slated for an increase by a majority of respondents.
Meanwhile, traditional channels fall lower on the spectrum again. Still, more than twice as many respondents plan to increase (26.8%) than decrease (11.5%) their direct mail spending. Research from MarketingCharts has found that US consumers, particularly Baby Boomers, ascribe strong purchase influence to direct mail. Respondents were also more likely to say they would increase (16.3%) than decrease (12.9%) their tradeshow and event budgets. Research has similarly shown that in-person events are particularly effective for B2B marketers. Finally, more respondents expect to decrease than increase their print and TV/radio advertising budgets, though fewer than half of respondents overall appear to advertising on radio and TV.

Email Priorities and Challenges
Returning to the Selligent and StrongView survey, a closer look at email marketing indicates that respondents are most likely to increase spending for the following email programs:
◉ Social media channel growth – 44.8%;
◉ Promotional (batch) – 43.1%; and
◉ Triggered/transactional programs – 39.7%.

Specific to lifecycle email marketing programs, the largest proportion of respondents plan increases for:
◉ Welcome (67.7%);
◉ Loyalty (60.6%); and
◉ Winback/re-engagement (56.8%).

Turning to email marketing challenges, the report indicates that the biggest challenge heading into 2016 is leveraging customer data from multiple channels and data sources, though many also say that improving segmentation and targeting will be a challenge. Of note, the biggest challenge to leveraging more data in email marketing programs is data cleanliness and quality, per respondents. A recent survey from Ascend2, noted improving list quality was cited as the most important goal of respondents’ list strategies. A recent survey from Phrasee found that data quality is considered to be the top element affecting email response rates.

Finally, respondents to the Campaigner survey indicate that earning new subscribers will be their biggest email marketing challenge this year, an interesting result given previously-released StrongView data showing that email marketers are far more focused on increasing subscriber engagement in the year ahead than they are on growing their lists.
