Data is at the core of CAMG’s response-driven marketing approach. We developed the Legal Marketing Index® and our Data and Analysis Reference Guides for various torts to share response data, industry monitoring data, and analysis. As firms continue to look to digital opportunities as a component of their marketing mix, we’re now including digital data in our monthly LMI for many torts, as well as in our updated reference guides.

Let’s look at the various types of digital data and how you can use that data to help you make smart marketing decisions. We’ll begin with a look at a snapshot of digital data for various torts and practice areas.

3M Defective Earplugs

In our 2019 3M Military Earplugs Marketing Data & Analysis Reference Guide, we included a first-time deep dive into digital data, which we will review here.

Targeting Parameters for Digital Media

Efficient marketing starts with defining and targeting the most likely buying audience. Digital marketing is no different. In fact, digital platforms provide a highly granular approach to audience segmentation. When you segment your audience, you divide people into subgroups based on demographics, including age, geography, interests, occupations, and additional criteria.

We put together targeting parameters with digital media for 3M Earplugs, which can be applied to your digital marketing strategy.

Digital Data from October LMI

The digital data provides us with a look at response data from campaigns in progress. Data that was published in the October LMI shows us that 42% of the responses came from males, 25-45, which helps us further drill down demographic targeting. We also see that Facebook was the most commonly used platform by those who responded. Almost all responses came from smartphones. The highest concentration of delivery was between 6am-3pm and the conversion rate was 5.38%. All this information gives us pertinent information to make marketing decisions.

Top Performing Digital DMAs

(Highest Concentration of Response)

An additional data piece we look at is the top performing DMAs or designated market areas. This tells us the cities with the highest concentration of response, which can help firms decide in which markets to run digital campaigns.
