Fospha as TikTok’s new measurement partner

Understanding media performance in digital marketing is like navigating an ever-changing maze. The emergence of platforms like TikTok has revolutionized the way brands engage with their audiences, creating additional complexity and opportunity. However, due to regulatory changes such as GDPR and iOS 14.5 updates, e-commerce brands now face a growing challenge: gaining clear insight into the performance of their media mix channels.

Top of funnel marketing

Top-of-funnel marketing is about more than just creating a buzz. It’s about laying a sustainable foundation for growth. Think of it like the first chapter of a compelling novel, where the story begins, intrigue ensues, and a relationship with the reader – or in this case, the customer – is formed.

Due to the difficulty of tracking and measuring the impact of these top-of-funnel activities, brands have historically gravitated toward bottom-of-funnel advertising where the results are more tangible, such as: B. Direct sales and conversions. However, this approach often ignores a crucial aspect of customer acquisition and brand building.

According to a Fospha reportBrands that consistently invest in top-of-funnel activities for at least 10 months are likely to see lower customer acquisition costs and a more robust return on ad spend (ROAS). Specifically, the report shows that brands that prioritize long-term brand awareness strategies can improve their ROAS by 42% and reduce acquisition costs by 35%, compared to brands that focus solely on conversion-oriented activities.

The challenges of current measurement practices

The digital advertising landscape has evolved significantly over the last five years, becoming more complex and requiring advanced measurement techniques.

Traditional pixel and cookie-based methods that have been the mainstay of most brands are becoming less effective due to regulatory changes like GDPR, CCPA, and iOS 14.5 that prioritize consumer protection over technological effectiveness. This has led to a significant reduction in visibility, particularly in the early stages of the customer journey. As a result, marketing attribution models that do not take into account top-of-funnel activities may overestimate the effectiveness of low-funnel activities.
