Kia’s George Haynes and Zappos’ Nate Luman discussed mining social data at Digiday’s Data Marketing Summit, giving actual examples of how they use data to inform marketing.
The execs agreed that there’s more to Facebook than just likes, citing that the ability to conduct sentiment analysis was one of Facebook’s strong points. Furthermore, the executives expressed frustration with the integration of social data into their existing CRM strategy, since a lot of the data on Facebook is almost stuck on the platform, leaving brands little opportunity to extract it.
“Some of the things we use data for is interesting,” Haynes said. “Looking at data from things that happened is like driving in a car and looking in the rearview mirror. If you look in the rearview mirror too long, you’re going to crash and everyone will pass you. We look at the data for the road ahead and glance in the rearview mirror. We focus on how we keep our eyes focused on the road and use milestones of where we’ve been to make sure we’re staying on the right path.”
