After work get-together

On Tuesday this week, the EUREF campus management organized their first after-work event for all 2500 employees working on campus. We mingled with our neighbours and learned about the businesses in a laid back atmosphere, helped by chilled drinks, currywurst and great music.

We also had the opportunity to officially introduce FactWorks in a short and sweet Pecha Kucha style presentation, covering our inception 15 years ago in the living room of our founders to the present day, with 45 employees and our new headquarters on EUREF campus.

EUREF campus is a melting pot for innovative businesses around sustainability, mobility and future living. We feel closely connected to our neighbors and are always trying to bring innovation to the forefront for our clients and to support them with actionable research recommendations.

Thanks for the evening, EUREF campus management!

After our office moving to EUREF campus last December, we finally had the chance to celebrate this joyful occasion. True to the motto "Timetraveling with FactWorks", we looked back at how the company evolved over the last 15 years and transformed the office into a glittering party space. Many alumnis joined as we played mobile exit room games, air hockey and danced 'til the early hours.

Thanks to everyone who joined!

MOBILE FIRST! MARKETING INSIGHTS FROM DMEXCO 2016

dmexco

When last Thursday the Dmexco – exposition and conference for digital marketing in Cologne – shut down its doors, it counted numerous new records. With over 50,700 visitors, 1,010 exhibitors and 570 speakers it’s now able to compete with the biggest marketing events globally. Big players in digital business showed up - Facebook, eBay and Google to name just a few - to present their ideas on how marketing and advertisement should be like from now on into the future. Some buzzwords to have on the radar this year were:

Mobile Marketing:
Mobile will be (surprise!) the future of every marketing campaign. As more and more internet activity comes from mobile devices, advertisers have to think of ways to catch customers’ attention on those smaller screens. Companies discover messenger apps as a personal communication channel where they can reach their customers one-on-one.

Programmatic Advertising:
Advertising processes are increasingly being automated. At Facebook and Google, where Programmatic Ads became popular, ads are placed using algorithms and real-time bidding functionality. Thus, artificial intelligence more and more opposes manual media planning.

Contextual Marketing:
As time of the customers becomes a valued good - there is just too much content out there - Contextual Marketing has become key. The advertiser’s message has to reach the customers with the right timing, on the right device and with the right content. The right content meaning everything needs to be personalized as well. Seems like demands for businesses marketers are getting ever more diverse and difficult.

With more and more data businesses gather from their customers and rising demands for individualized, multi-channel, contextual advertisement, market research and analytics will need to move ahead to conduct professional data analyses and give recommendations how to address customers effectively.

As one speaker at the event pointed out, only 12% of enterprise data is actually used for analytics today. Sounds like there is still room for improvement!

WHAT YOU MISSED AT THIS YEAR’S IFA

Technology is no doubt sexy as hell to consumers and thus this year’s IFA, as Berlin’s biggest exhibition for consumer electronics and home appliances, has another record year in terms of scope and visitors. The late summer date makes the IFA an ideal place for holiday-focused launches, also internationally – and always offers a good reason for the FactWorks team to check out newest developments and innovations in the field.

There is a race not only for new product launches like brand new really hot! smartphones (couldn’t resist), but also for who has the best new abbreviation. This year it seems to be 4k OLED, making the TV experience even brighter and more colorfully appealing. Not that new is the internet connection of all kinds of household devices. The ’internet of things’ is however still a growing topic and thus a refrigerator that tells you from the outside semi-transparent monitor what is inside and connects to a shopping list app is one of the stars of this year’s exhibition.

This might impact market research and the way respondents can be reached to get optimal usage and attitude assessments in a future not that far away – surveying via the fridge instead of the desktop PC or smartphone and getting online-ethnographic reads instantaneously, to name just a few possible scenarios. Or think of newest developments in virtual reality where future positioning and brand performance might also play a role in the digital space.

I guess I still prefer to just open the fridge door, but wonder when this might change – maybe if standing in the supermarket looking at my paper pencil shopping list doesn’t feel state-of-the-art anymore.
