SEPTEMBER 24, 2014 • 11:00AM–12:00PM

A large part of customer needs are latent and unstated. Usually these are emotional and capturing them is not easy. While research facilities such as neuroscientific research exist, wearables provide an easier and alternative way of capturing these emotional responses, albeit in real time, cost-effective and uninhibited manner. Using wearables to measure emotional engagement helps in understanding customer needs, effective customer targeting and right messaging without asking the wrong questions.

Join this webcast to delve in the new realm of consumer data captured in real time and how it can be utilized for anticipating customer needs.

Learning from Winners with ConAgra Foods
Special Webcast – Free for member and non-members
Wednesday, October 1, 2014 1:00–2:00PM EST

ConAgra Foods uncovers the winning research and strategy behind their two ARF David Ogilvy Award winning campaigns – Reddi-wip and PAM Cooking Spray.

Reddi-wip boosted sales outside the holiday season by highlighting a different host food – fruit. The campaign showed how Reddi-wip has the power to transform fruit from an ordinary dish into something more exciting and, with only 15 calories per serving, it is an everyday treat you can still feel good about.

PAM’s ‘Haunted’ campaign addresses a really big problem lurking in kitchen cabinets across America:  the brown, sticky, lingering gunk on your cookware called “residue.”   Our insight journey lead us to identify and resolve the problem and then convincingly communicate PAM’s superiority with a campaign that generated strong branded awareness, impacted perceptions, and moved volume to meet our Marketing Objective.

At this webcast learn why the research behind recent campaigns “Unleashing the Joy of Reddi-wip and Fruit” and “Haunted” were celebrated by the industry, and what steps ConAgra took to take home the Grand Ogilvy Award

How Panera Bread Developed a “Single View of the Customer” to Drive Marketing Strategy and Tactics
OCTOBER 15, 2014 · 1:00-2:00PM ET

Increasingly brands have access to more and bigger data about their customers and prospects. CRM and transactional data can provide millions of behavioral data points. Primary marketing research can provide attitudes, needs and perceptions. And third party marketing data provide a robust picture of activities that can be leveraged for communications planning. However, it is often a challenge to integrate these sources to provide consistent, comprehensive view that can be leveraged for both brand strategy development and the execution of marketing tactics.

In this talk, you will learn how Panera Bread leveraged their “big data” MyPanera behavior data, with primary marketing research data and third party marketing data to develop a harmonized “single view of the customer.” It will describe in detail how a segmentation framework was developed to guide overarching brand strategy, fully leverage the execution and tracking opportunities of MyPanera, drive new customer acquisition and retention strategies, inform media/communications planning and even assist in real estate planning.

Presenters
Eric Paquette – SVP, Copernicus Marketing Consulting and Research
Shawn Utke – VP, Brand Insights and Research, Panera Bread

Testimonial

"The ARF has really evolved over the last couple of years and become a go-to source for all levels within the organization. We use it to understand client needs, hear fresh ideas and be exposed to a balanced perspective of what are the key trends in the industry and how we as researchers, need to start thinking about these trends and their impact on the research industry - the ‘People Are Talking, Are you Listening?’ the ARF initiated was a perfect example of just such an effort."
Jeni Lee Chapman – Executive Vice President, Harris Interactive
