Clearsaleing powers Rosetta & Helzberg Diamonds to Win 'Most Effective Use of Web Analytics' at SES San Jose

Top interactive agency develops winning analytics methodology for

NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation in Web analytics methodology, as well as excellence in execution, earned the Rosetta - Helzberg Diamonds team the "Most Effective Use of Web Analytics" award at the August Search Engines Strategies (SES) conference in San Jose, Calif.

The winning campaign, announced at SES, used the attribution management component of ClearSaleing's analytics platform to properly assign conversion credits to each advertising source, campaign and individual ad along the Purchase Path. The scope of the reporting included clicks on a variety of tactics, including organic search listings. Simultaneously, Rosetta integrated ClearSaleing's technology with DoubleClick data to expand attribution management analysis.

"During the SES Conference, one of the major themes across panel discussions was the importance of understanding the true purchase funnel, no matter what the industry or conversion," says Chris Boggs, director of Search Engine Optimization at Rosetta. "The Helzberg Diamonds case study was a great example of the thousands of online conversions that occur each day that could have been only attributed to the 'last click' in the past."

Using the Rosetta methodology powered by ClearSaleing, each of the display and search initiates that introduced, influenced and closed a conversion at received credit and was measured appropriately. This allowed Helzberg and Rosetta to determine each ad's impact on the bottom line.

"Sophisticated marketers such as Rosetta are seeing how ClearSaleing improves the bottom line for their clients by more effectively tracking all the points along a Purchase Path that receive customer interaction. We are banishing the 'last click' mentality from the profession and giving marketers a full scope view of what marketing and ad spend elements are really working to enhance returns," adds ClearSaleing CEO Mike Lanese.

"As marketers, we continue to face challenges to demonstrate direct ROI and it is imperative that we develop accurate, reliable, and consistent metrics around the performance of marketing investments. Not reviewing the big picture is a huge error," says Sarah Cucchiara, Interactive Marketing Manager. "If tactics are reviewed individually and last-click attribution is the measurement model, a snowball effect of measurement errors can occur throughout the entire marketing decision process. Rosetta understood the importance of evaluating our current measurement framework and the need to build a solid foundation."
