We are AI Focus, an artificial intelligence startup in Silicon Beach using machine learning to explore and develop new marketing technologies for our clients. The focus of this White Paper is the statistical analysis of the results of our Gbizbot, an online AI tool which drives customers to engage with brick and mortar businesses. You were invited to download our presentation because of your interest and expertise in statistics, big data and new business technologies. We welcome your thoughts, questions and critiques regarding our results and methodology.  If you are interested in analyzing our raw data for an academic article or PhD project, please contact us at aifocus as we are happy to share our data.

The primary goal of a business is to increase revenue. Revenue is an increasing function of the number of customers a business serves. Our company AI Focus leverages artificial intelligence and big data to drive customers towards our clients. Using machine learning, we determine how much value our clients are getting from their current digital marketing efforts and how their resources can produce better results. The most basic way clients measure the impact of digital marketing is through revenue. To achieve increased revenue, we must manipulate the variables which have the highest impact on revenue. For instance, increasing the number of people who discover our clients’ website, increasing phone calls, or increasing the frequency of branded searches can all increase the revenue for a client. While there exists marketing industry standard methods to impact revenue, we leveraged our decades of marketing expertise with new technologies to develop advanced tools and methodologies capable of manipulating variables far beyond industry expectations.

Methodology 

To protect confidentiality, the data presented here has been anonymized and codes will be used to represent various clients. The project presented herein is a basic comparison between 10 different businesses before the intervention of our Gbizbot and after our interventions, thus providing two sets of data for comparison. All of our client data is provided by Google for the Google My Business page and by Caller Insights for our client’s tracked phone numbers. Here are the variables tracked on a daily basis.

Variables provided by Google for each client 

  • Total searches
  • Discovery searches
  • Total views
  • Search views
  • Maps views
  • Total actions
  • Direct searches
  • Website actions
  • Directions actions
  • Phone call actions
  • Total owner photos
  • Owner photo views
  • Total customer photos

We have found the following six variables have the most significant effect on revenue and thus our analysis will focus on these. From past analysis, we know the other seven variables Google tracks are functions of the six key variables stated below so we do not need to analyze all thirteen variables.

  • Direct searches
  • Website actions
  • Directions actions
  • Phone call actions
  • Owner photo views
  • Customer photo views

As Google provides data for these variables via their Google My Business page, for the purpose of this project we have sufficient, accurate, consistent data from a credible and universal source. As we have access to Google data recorded before our clients initiated our services, we can test the impact of our activities on our clients’ trading position at different points in time.

Descriptive Statistics

The table below shows the mean, standard deviations and confidence intervals for each of the variables 100 days before and after our interventions. For each of our clients, there are six variables with the last part of the variable name being the code assigned to the client for the purpose of anonymity. The 95% confidence intervals of the means shows that the bounds for all the variables before our intervention are lower than the bounds of the same variables after our intervention. In other words, the confidence intervals do not intersect and thus the means of each of the variable was significantly lower before our intervention compared to the means of 100 days after our interventions.

Analysis of Variance

The table shows the analysis of variance output for the six variables. We can easily observe that in every case the p value is way below 0.05. In fact for this test we are able to test our hypothesis at 99% level of confidence. In all cases the null hypothesis that the means for these variables before our intervention and after are rejected with overwhelming evidence.

Three Means Cluster Analysis Graph 1

From graph 1 above we can clearly see that the web activity data can be clustered into two clusters. There is the first cluster that contains the web activity data for the period when we had not been signed up for marketing services. The second cluster contains the data for the web activity after the impact of our interventions had taken full effect.

The clustering means table 2 below shows the distribution of the means of the six variables across the two clusters. By observation we can see that the means for the two clusters of each variable are quite different implying that the data has been changing over time as the impact of our activity took effect.

The clustering vector below shows the distribution of all data points that did not have missing values for the 100 days before and after our intervention. We can easily observe that the data is divided into two clusters. The first cluster contains more 1’s than the second cluster. The second cluster took most of the 2’s. Given that the data is divided into two equal portions where we had 100 days before our interventions and 100 days after our interventions, we can easily observe that there are more 1’s compared to 2’s. This can be explained by the fact that there is a 20+/-5 days lag before the impact of our intervention is felt. From the tables above, we know that the 2’s or cluster two represent the days when web activity was high. On the other hand, 1’s represent the days when web activity was low. By observations we can see that 1’s dominate the first half of the clustering vector which implies that most of the 100 days before our intervention had low web activity. For the 100 days after the 2’s dominate which shows that most of the days that had high web activity are in the 100 days after our interventions.

CONCLUSION

Thank you for reviewing our data sets. We hope you found the presentation informative and interesting. The GbizBot, our artificial intelligence tool, is constantly learning and being upgraded, and we will update this White Pape in the future when we have 50 client data sets.

We also plan to release future White Papers with statistical analysis of the GbizBot results for the 12 month time frame and analysis of what befalls a client when the Gbizbot is turned off.

We welcome your thoughts on the results presented. If you are interested in the raw data, we are happy to share the anonymized data for your own analysis.

Reviews:

***** Michael Perlmutter

“The increase in client revenue is based on the Google data and recorded phone calls.  All Clients had a substantial increase in incoming  customer calls and very large increase in number of web visits from GMB & Maps get directions, which has increased client revenues quite substantially. I recommend it to my clients.”  

***** Asher Peretz

“I am the principal of my business  and our incoming customer call volume more than doubled (year on year ) we are Very happy with the increase in business”TEST for  Xcellimark

***** Mike Jones

As a practicing statistician, I have reviewed the article  GOOGLE MY BUSINESS MACHINE LEARNING project. I can confidently say that the technology applied led to significant differences based on the 100 days before the technology and after. It is easy to observe that the changes included but not limited to an increase in business activity and thus revenue

***** Winnie Ross

To the best of my knowledge, based on the raw data provided, I can confirm that GOOGLE MY BUSINESS MACHINE LEARNING article utilized valid statistical methods and thus the conclusion that GBizbot led to an increase in revenue is statistically sound. I would recommend AI Focus GMB marketing operations to anyone who wants to boost their revenue any day.

***** Evans Wright

I have reviewed the GBizbot operations as analyzed in the  GOOGLE MY BUSINESS MACHINE LEARNING white paper in my capacity as a data scientist. Based on the data provided, I came to the same conclusion as the article that business revenue increased as a result of the GBizbot operations conducted by AI Focus.
