IPA champions Silicon Beach

The IPA is a proud sponsor of this year’s Silicon Beach that takes place in Bournemouth this week (18-19th September). The conference draws together some of the most influential men and women, all leaders in their fields, from the worlds of advertising, communication and digital innovation to share their expertise and the latest innovative thinking.


Kicking off the first day of the Conference was the #IPASocialWorks’ and MBA’s James Devon who outlined the ‘Measuring not counting’ project, a collaboration designed to create best practice for the industry in measurement of social media ROI, which has been undertaken with The Marketing Society and Market Research Society, and endorsed by London Business School.

"There’s a tonne of numbers out there, but we need to know how to navigate them, and the difference between correlation and causality," declared James.

James explained how the project worked, with sponsorship from Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, to peer review case studies which are made available on the IPA Effectiveness Hub.

He referenced eight case examples, looking at the business impact of social media on customer services and marketing communications, including 02, BT, and Visit Iceland, then entertained the audience with a video from Mattessons.

He also heralded the launch of a ‘How to’ Guide due out later in the year, and invited critical comment and contributions to the online draft.
