Project 1 - Spring 2005

Where to start
Where to Start

You should begin to analyze the data by using the techniques we have discussed in class, such as:

  • Computing SOV (for category & brand)

  • Computing Media Mix (for category & brand)

  • Computing BDI/CDI

  • Computing Seasonal Sales Indices (for category & brand)

    Beyond the computations, what do the data mean?

Project 1 - Spring 2005

What else
What Else?

Look for connections among different data types.

  • For example, the MRI product summary may lead you to look at MRI user data in a particular way to identify targeting opportunities;

  • Or, the media mix analysis, combined with MRI user data, may help you identify a targeting problem;

  • Or, MRI user data plus DMA sales data plus media mix data may identify geographic opportunities.

Project 1 - Spring 2005

Important comparisons
Important Comparisons

  • Heavy / Medium / Light Users vs. Smokey Users

  • Market Share vs. SOV

  • Smokey Media Mix vs. the Category

  • BDI vs. CDI

  • Seasonal Sales Indices for Smokey vs. the Category

Project 1 - Spring 2005

The completed project
The Completed Project

  • You should turn in a printed PowerPoint deck with one slide per page.

  • Each page should include your name and a page number.

  • You are limited to a maximum of 5 pages, plus a cover page with a signed honor statement.

  • Each page should identify one of the most significant problems/opportunities faced by Smokey brand in a particular area of interest to media planners.

  • Due at the beginning of class, Tuesday, March 1.

Project 1 - Spring 2005

Areas of interest
Areas of Interest

Your project should identify problems / opportunities in each of the following areas:

  • Product Users / Potential Users

  • Geography

  • Seasonality

  • Competitive Environment

    In addition, you may include one other area of significant problems / opportunities.

Project 1 - Spring 2005

Some cautions advice
Some Cautions / Advice

  • There are lots of problems / opportunities in this data set. Your job is to find the most significant ones.

  • Don’t ignore any of the data. You should examine it all or you could miss something very important.

  • Don’t make recommendations.

  • Provide rationale for your analysis. Tables, charts, and graphs are good ways to present data.

Project 1 - Spring 2005

An example page
An Example Page

  • The next page shows a good example from a hypothetical presentation deck.

  • This sample page shows analysis of product users using three data sources: MRI Product Summary, MRI All Users, and MRI Heavy Users.

  • The page presents a related problem and opportunity (restates the problem as an opportunity).

  • Sources are clearly identified.

  • Presentation of data in table format.

Project 1 - Spring 2005

Product users
Product Users

  • Problem: Age 18-64 user base is overly broad.

  • Opportunity:Redefine primary users as age 35-64.

  • Rationale:

    • Significantly above-average indices for Heavy Users in this age group, particularly 35-54. (SOURCE: MRI All Users; MRI Heavy Users)

    • 65% of Heavy Users are age 35-64. (SOURCE: MRI Heavy Users)

    • Heavy Users (25% of users) account for 78% of volume. (SOURCE:MRI Product Summary)
