Training – Making sense of audience data
Jonathan Goodacre and Daniel Cowley from The Audience Agency, UK

This training day will look at one of our most important assets – audience data – what we need, how we source or collect it, what it means and at the ways it can be used. It will be an interactive session in which participants will be encouraged to consider their own research related to audience development or marketing strategies.

In particular, it will focus on practices of segmentation and profiling, looking at the theories behind these ideas and at how we can develop our own systems. The day will include case studies, exercises and opportunity for discussion.

Amongst the topics covered will be

  • The uses of data
  • The objectiveness and rigour of various ways of collecting and creating data
  • Practical research methods
  • The analytical tools that can be used to understand and model data
  • Concepts of segmentation and profiling
  • Action plans based on the evidence obtained

Participants are also encouraged to bring their own examples to the session and to share their own experience and expertise.
