Aggregated Campaign Dashboard

This Guide Will Help You Understand:

What this Use Case Does and Why We Developed It

Problem

You have probably met with some obstacles when you tried to measure the effectiveness of your campaigns. Although you actively collected consents, you were unable to gain an overall view of the campaign performance without assigning open and click actions with individual customer records.

This limitation posed a significant obstacle to your ability to assess the impact of your campaigns effectively and make informed decisions, mainly in two areas:

  • Comprehensive Performance Metrics: Marketing teams require access to performance metrics, with a particular focus on key indicators like Open Rate and Click Rate. This need arises from the desire to evaluate the effectiveness of email campaigns and make data-driven decisions to improve engagement and conversion rates.
  • Data Privacy and Compliance: Concerns about data privacy and compliance with regulations such as e-privacy and GDPR regulations arose. A solution that enables you to gather the necessary insights without a direct connection of customer data to specific actions and that ensures the protection of customer privacy and adherence to data protection laws was needed.

Solution

The solution to this problem is access to a comprehensive overview of crucial performance metrics, such as Open Rate and Click Rate. Such overview comes from aggregated anonymized click and open actions from email campaigns. Anonymization means that no direct connection to customer data is created. This ensures privacy and data protection regulations compliance.

This Use Case

Aggregated Campaigns Dashboard allows you to obtain a comprehensive overview of important performance metrics, specifically Open Rate and Click Rate, by aggregating anonymized click and open actions from email campaigns. All while these actions remain unlinked to any customer data. This Use Case enhances the value and utility of your email campaign analytics and allows you to make informed decisions and optimize your strategies effectively.

Setup Guide

This feature introduces a new section within Dashboards named Bloomreach Dashboards. This is an out-of-the-box, pre-defined optional dashboard that will display aggregated Open and Click Rate metrics for all the Email Campaigns within your project.

Note

Please, read the Terms of Use and consult with your legal & privacy teams before you enable this dashboard.

3. Aggregate Open and Click Actions

Once, enabled the application will now start aggregating Open and Click actions for each Email Campaign in a new storage that is separate and not linked to any customer identifiers or events within Engagement.

How to Work with this Use Case

Dashboard View with Preset Duration Options

You can filter Campaigns that occurred within the selected preset time period (3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 24 months)

Dashboard View Filter

You can use the Dashboard View filter to narrow down on specific Campaigns to easily compare two or more campaigns for Year-over-Year Analysis.

Display Metrics

You can expand each Campaign and display the metrics for each variant with it.

Active Campaigns & Edit Campaigns

Active Campaigns are visually indicated with a green icon next to the name of the campaign.

You can also directly navigate to the Campaign when you click on the Edit button against each row

Examples of this Use Case in Practice

  • You wish to have a higher-level view of all running Email Campaigns that shows Open Rate and Click Rate metrics without tracking or tying any actions to the customer records.
  • You wish to compare Open and Click rate metrics for two or more campaigns year-over-year, such as engagement on two Black Friday Campaigns.
  • You do not need to store events longer than necessary if you are mainly interested in just these metrics viewed long-term via the new Dashboard for up to two years from the last tracked action against the campaign (keeps MES and overall events storage under control).

Limitations

  • The current version of the dashboard only supports Email Campaigns.
  • Aggregated metrics displayed are always computed taking into account the total of all unique open and click actions tracked against the email node(s), for the entire duration of a campaign.
  • Aggregated Campaign dashboard cannot be edited or shared.
  • Aggregated data collection is only used to drive usage of this dashboard and will not be accessible within any other areas of the application outside of this dashboard.
  • Aggregated data is only captured and visible on the dashboard from the point that this feature is activated and for any Email Campaigns that are sent thereafter. It does not retroactively collect Open and Click data for any email campaigns that were sent prior to the activation of this feature.
  • Data will not be pushed or accessible within EBQ.
