Every week, we will be featuring a team member. I recently sat down with Judi Webster, Director of Strategy and Data and here is what I learned about her….
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.I have 3 kids under 3 as well as a dog. So you could say I keep quite busy chasing my kids around. I love to blog. In my spare time I like to write and have my own mom blog that serves as a resource for new parents. For several years now, I have been writing my own fiction novel as a hobby and I hope one day to get published. Q. What exactly is your role responsible for here at Force?I work with my team to run analysis of large amounts of data to find specific trends and variables that create successful marketing campaigns. We then distill down what really is and is not working from a strategy perspective. With these findings, I am able to conduct monthly strategy testing and apply new strategies to always keep our clients ahead of the curve. I am also responsible for working on overall efficiencies, creating methods for scale and, providing holistic account strategy recommendations from data analysis.Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?I love the level of the opportunity that is out there in the data atmosphere. There are so many ways to apply the same strategy across all channels. To me, it is really exciting to see all the various ways to become better at what we do and to help our clients. I really have a lot of room to be creative. Every problem is different, so I am able to find various creative ways to solve real dealer problems in many different ways. I am really passionate about putting time into data and coming up with a unique strategy and hearing the impact it had.Q. What’s one piece of advice you would give dealer?I would tell any dealer to look at data you already have, and learn how to leverage it. Clients don’t realize all the potential their own data has! By providing us additional information that only the OEM has it gives us added insight into the market. We then can use that data in various ways including refining targeting to eliminate ad budget waste or creating custom audiences around their data to get better engagement and response.Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or favorite place you’ve ever traveled?I have always wanted to go to Paris and Rome. I would definitely be that tourist that would be taking pictures of everything and EATING everything in sight. I really want to experience other cultures.Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
