An Efficient Alternative to Concept Optimization

We are all familiar with the empirical tools used to evaluate concepts, optimize the words and phrases, and forecast sales. But these fail to examine it from a real life perspective: what do consumers want from the concept or, more specifically, what is the best combination of elements to include in a concept? Read this paper for exciting details about an alternative optimization solution that doesn’t favor close-in ideas and actually rewards uniqueness.

The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple,” Oscar Wilde famously pointed out.

In the audience measurement business a less famous British commentator, Rodney Harris, noted in the 1980s that:

“Media research is not designed to find out the truth. It is a treaty between interested parties.”

Certainly, if by truth we mean perfection, then audience measurement falls down. There are no perfect audience numbers; all are estimates. Short of interviewing everybody in the population and achieving error-free recall or tracking of behaviour, all measurement systems are imperfect.

So we employ statistical techniques to help us. Four stand out: sample weighting, ascription, data fusion and modelling.
