Sydney, July 1, 2014: Ogilvy Public Relations Australia, part of STW Group, has launched its proprietary measurement system, Impact4, which offers its clients and organisations over 70 different tools and techniques to measure public relations and communication campaigns.
It combines the very latest measurement techniques, analysis software and tools, with a mathematical thread that allows Ogilvy PR Australia to be the first public relations consultancy in Australia to offer a unique combination of predictive analytics, statistical outcome modelling, independent analysis and integrated search optimisation methodology.
Impact 4 supports AMEC’s Barcelona Principles on measurement and is based on four specific principles. First it is built on a bespoke framework of different measures, allowing clients to build their own unique model. Secondly, it offers clients a fully graphic dashboard interface to analyse, in real time, the results of the campaign. Thirdly it is based around a constant quarterly cycle of review and insight based learning, and lastly and most importantly, it is powered by and built with, a relationship with Metrica (a global media analysis and media evaluation consultancy headquartered in London), allowing fully independent measurement across all Ogilvy Public Relations Australia clients.
Impact4 is organised into four groups of measurement:
Success is agreed at the beginning of each campaign or year with a number of proprietary tools including the Impact4 Scorecard and Impact4 Measurement Matrix. KPIs across communications outputs, out-takes and business outcomes are all set and agreed during this phase.
A full suite of statistical correlation techniques is offered which allows Ogilvy Public Relations to directly understand how a campaign makes an impact to a client’s business. Out-takes and outputs are correlated to business results via regression and correlation techniques. Finally, predictive analytics tools are offered to allow the agency to accurately predict the increase in revenue and sales of a campaign.
A full suite of communication out-take measures are offered, including awareness change, attitude change and propensity. A full suite of social media measures, powered by twelve different social analytics tools also forms part of the offer. The agency is also including a fully integrated complement of SEO tools within Impact4.
A full range of campaign output measures, analysed independently by Metrica, is grouped into four levels, and includes over 50 different ways to measure a campaign’s quantity and quality. Part of the system can score the quality and quantity of a campaign in a single number (Impact Points), allowing an easy and simple way to track a campaign over time.
Kieran Moore, CEO Ogilvy Public Relations Australia said: “The launch of Impact4 reflects Ogilvy Public Relations’ new global standards for measurement and builds on our commitment to offer a state of the art measurement offering. Our clients are sophisticated. They need hard data and together we need to measure the impact of our work. We have gone above and beyond with Impact4 and we are excited to launch it,” she said.
Richard Brett, Group Managing Director, Consumer, Ogilvy Public Relations Australia, who led the development of Impact4 for the agency said: “Impact4 puts all of our measurement knowledge in one place, combining the very best tools and techniques from around the world in both social and traditional media analytics. And, because it is fully tailored specifically for each client need, it allows clients to have a measurement tool that is both insightful and real time.”
The agency’s new system follows an eight month internal build process and client review.
Ogilvy PR is a joint venture between WPP and STW Group, Australia’s leading marketing and communications service group.

The Australian Media and Communications sector via journalism, public relations, advertising and corporate / government communications holds considerable power and influence in shaping our society, culture, views and decisions. As such it is imperative there is diversity at the senior level of all media and communications organisations and departments to ensure the messages that are communicated are representative and reflective of our diverse population. While there has been some improvement in recent times, there is still some way to go before gender diversity is seen across the board in media and communications due to a diverse array of challenges still existing.
Kieran Moore, CEO Ogilvy PR will present Mentoring – “The key to creating influential leaders?” She will also take part in an interactive panel discussion – “Highly effective women – Juggling your personal and professional goals and obligations”
