Data insights + creativity = competitive advantage

A seismic shift from intuition to analytics

The traditional agency model of relying primarily on beautiful or clever creative to sell products has long been replaced by data-driven, science-based approaches, dominated by digital marketing.

Vast amounts of data are now available for agencies to profile, predict, assess and monitor clients, customers and campaigns.

But extracting powerful insights from this data pool is trickier than it seems. Do it effectively and your agency will achieve competitive advantage, efficient budget spend, and effective campaigns. Data is fast becoming an advertising or marketing agency’s most valuable asset.

Agencies have a legal responsibility to secure data and protect privacy. Whether this includes protecting consumer data and preferences, or sensitive client information like databases and confidential product information, security breaches and hacks can be catastrophic.

In the advertising and marketing context, another source of huge data volumes is content. Copy, graphics, large image files and high resolution video need to be stored properly and made accessible to internal and external parties who need it. Agencies with geographically dispersed offices need to manage and organise this data efficiently, avoiding duplication and version control issues.

Key challenges in the advertising and marketing industry

The most successful agencies of the future will be those who balance creativity with data,
and personalisation with privacy.
