Multichannel Marketing Insight
Unique to market tooling and consultative support from industry experts.
Our in-house tool Corvidae uses machine learning to solve the issue of aligning multiple data silos to allow true customer-lifetime-value calculation.
With this data, we isolate customer cohorts for your highest lifetime value customers and understand their critical first conversion path, enabling the development of highly tailored multi-channel strategies that drive growth at your chosen ROI with statistically sound forecasting at their heart.
We also transform session-led analytics information into customer-led insight, ready for re-ingestion back into yuor existing analytics platform or for immediate visualisation via API. Our insights and analysis team cascade multi-channel strategies from this data to truly drive performance that moves the needle.
Achieving this focus requires a skilled separation of signal from the noise. Using bleeding-edge data analysis in our agile tool suite, our analysts isolate meaningful insights, quantify their impact on performance in fine-grain detail and deliver market-leading performance improvements.
QueryClick's data insights are focused on facilitating change. By showing the pound or dollar impact of each insight in the overall strategy, we enable clear and easy prioritisation and focus on the actions that matter.
Understanding the impact of cross-channel change also facilitates the strategic use of what we call 'halo-effect' insights. Named after this effect, our in-house Halo tool is designed to demonstrate its impact on SEO and PPC activity by determining the precise saving or spend opportunity that is achievable when SERP behaviours across these channels are integrated. This maximises your budgets efficiently and aggressively grows overall search traffic volumes at the highest achievable ROI.

A Data-Led Culture
To execute and deliver actionable insight at scale for major global brands, we have built our performance marketing service around a well-balanced combination of agile data platforms and a data-led analytical approach.
Analytical insight is harder to come by (and more expensive) if 90% of an analyst's time is spent sourcing, grabbing and cleaning data. By leveraging automation, QueryClick analysts spend just 10% of their time collecting data and 90% exploring, investigating and extracting insight for our clients.
For example, we utilise an agile tooling platform (SearchLens) and an automatable data cleansing tool (Sternidae) to collect 10.3 million rows of data daily from B&Q's data silos to undertake unique customer-lifetime-value calculations and cohort analysis to derive statistically significant forecasting and budget realignment across their online marketing channels.
Our teams, from analytics to content and inbound marketing, are invested in letting data lead their client strategies. Meaningful metrics form the basis of key deliverables and serve as the rationale for day-to-day and month-to-month actions across our campaigns.
+$350k p.a. high lifetime value (LTV) cohorts.
Cohort analysis using Corvidae uncovered an extra $350k p.a. high value customer-cohort audience available for targeting in the US market via lookalike modelling and programmatic prospecting at the lowest CPA of any channel.
All clients undergo an onboarding process to align their data collection and storage with best practice and to enable tagging and unique-customer identification cross device and offline-data integration. Typically, that process includes:
Our analytics healthchecks ensure accurate data and the existence of 'ground truths'. This provides a solid basis for a rolling upgrade and gap-reduction plan to enhance ongoing reporting and analysis.
In our experience, client-side analytics teams are highly skilled but lack the time required to undertake high-level audits, especially as this often leads to further investigative work to uncover the cause of data gaps or tracking inconsistencies. By delegating this activity to a third party, businesses benefit from an impartial view and can purchase ad-hoc, follow-on support from our team to supplement their in-house capabilities and bring data-collection standards up to the mark.
In addition to auditing data collection, we implement tagging solutions that ensure easy maintainability and safeguard the continual process of deep-data collection.
Agile Data Sourcing and Ingestion
QueryClick's analysts use our in-house tooling solutions to automate the extraction and cleansing of data, allowing them to focus on leveraging insight from your data. Our data pipelines ensure quick and robust access to a wide range of insight.
10.3m rows of data cleansed daily
Sternidae cleanses and automates the ingestion of 10.3 million rows of data daily for Corvidae analysis with B&Q.
After establishing a solid data foundation, our analysts utilise robust statistical techniques to build forecasting and behaviour-prediction models on top of the data supplied by our tools to provide an accurate, interpretable picture of the future. Delivering confidence intervals and margins for error ensures that the full context is used when analysing data.
In practice, this means in addition to accurate multichannel budget remodelling or forecasted Organic traffic return, our data insights are provided with a plain-English walkthrough of meaning and impact and are associated with actionable insights within a defined timeframe.
Our approach ensures that your recommendations are tailored to drive underlying business performance and can be broken into digestible actions that can be delivered by your internal team or QueryClick's team on your behalf. By making sure that all recommendations work within this framework, we deliver significant performance improvement over the duration of your campaign.
