    John Lovett - Senior Director (Search Discovery) and Kelly McKeown - Senior Director, Revenue Marketing (conDati) Recorded: Dec 11 2019 54 mins
    Marketers continue to be inundated from all sides about artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

    Join our martech and data insights experts as they show you how to use AI and ML to drive pipeline and revenue growth. You’ll learn techniques to better plan, manage and execute your digital campaigns.

    Watch this webinar and learn:

    Ways to blend data silos to create a unified measurement data set

    Techniques to course correct campaigns in real time
    Tips for more accurate pipeline and revenue forecasting
  • Insights: The Missing Piece in Your Marketing Data
    Insights: The Missing Piece in Your Marketing Data
    Zoe Dowling, Ph.D., SVP Research, FocusVision Recorded: Dec 10 2019 47 mins
    A freshly released Forrester study, commissioned by FocusVision, shows that how a customer feels about your brand is 1.5 times more likely to drive a positive business outcome (i.e. purchase, loyalty, advocacy).  With this in mind, it's essential to understand your Customer Truth - how they think, feel and act to create experiences that drive business outcomes.

    Yet we rely on our marketing dashboards to provide data on how we are doing and whether we need to change course.  But it only tells one side of the story.  To succeed in creating great customer experiences, you also need the other side - the small data gathered by talking directly to your customers.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    - Get insights that are essential to build the right experiences
    - Really know your customers and how this data can be used across the board
    - Add customer research to help build your marketing foundation and inspire your work"

    Mobilize Me!! - Mobile Survey Design Enhancements
    Zoe Dowling, Ph.D., FocusVision, Roddy Knowles, Dynata & Ted Saunders, MaritzCX Recorded: Dec 3 2019 55 mins
    Mobile Survey Design. We've got this, right? Well, not quite. While we've learned a lot over the years, we continue to learn more all the time. And as mobile design evolves, we continually need to monitor whether we are making the best use of the small screen. This is as important for data quality as it is participant experience.

    Recent research-on-research jointly conducted by MaritzCX, Dynata, and FocusVision, sampled nearly 3,000 survey respondents to better understand the preferences of mobile and non-mobile respondents and explore optimal ways to present multi-attribute grids, NPS, lists and pagination.

    Join MaritzCX's Ted Saunders, Dynata's Roddy Knowles, and FocusVision's Zoe Dowling, as they discuss the research findings and the displays that improve respondent experience and capture higher quality responses.

    In this webinar, we will cover:

    - Where we are with mobile completion rates
    - Findings from the research-on-research
    - The need to continually review and evolve mobile survey design best practices

    Why Brand Message Dilution Hurts In The Experience Economy
    Zoe Dowling, Ph.D., SVP Research, FocusVision & Christopher Wallace, President, InnerView Recorded: Nov 26 2019 55 mins
    Brands are spending more than $200 Billion on marketing and advertising annually, yet the advertisements customers see are only part of their experience with a brand. The true faces are the people who represent the company - the front-line employee and partners who interact with customers every day. This leads to the question: are Marketing and front-line employees telling the same story? And if not, what is the business impact of misalignment? These are the questions that InnerView and FocusVision set out to answer in freshly-released research talking to 250 senior business professionals in Marketing, Customer Experience, and Product. Join Chris Wallace, President of InnerView and Zoe Dowling, SVP Research at FocusVision, as they discuss the findings.

    In this webinar, we will cover:

    - What customer research companies are doing and are they leveraging it to its full extent
    - The link between brand promise and brand experience, and the cost of misalignment
    - The need for dynamic conversations, with your customers and your employees"

  • Top 10 Critical Concepts in Crisis Management Communications - November Update
    Top 10 Critical Concepts in Crisis Management Communications - November Update
    Thomas B. Cross Recorded: Nov 14 2019 21 mins
    This monthly update focuses on responding to critical crisis communications conditions. The world by all standards is not more stable but is actually significantly more vulnerable due to sabotage, espionage, and crisis’s of all kinds. A crisis management solution is a series of online tools/apps designed to assist, guide, track and manage all corporate communications activities in a timely manner. While we would like to think there is one term to describe responses in a crisis, there is not one type of crisis nor one word to cover all situations critical to any crisis communications. Increasingly, social networks are filled with toxic nonsense, mis and disinformation, weaponized media, shamers, haters, privacy violations, fake and deep fake which you cannot predict. You cannot react to all of this, you can only direct a strategy to manage personal and company messaging. Here are the top 10 reasons for acquiring and using a crisis management team as well as tools/apps as it is "not if but only when" a crisis, disaster or terrorist attack will happen.

    Here are the Top 10 Critical Concepts presented: Communications, Context, Contact, Collaboration, Connections, Consistency, Channels, Compliance, Cynchronicity and Customers. This 30-minute webinar will review, navigate and provide actionable tools to help you manage the upcoming crisis coming to you and your business.

    How AI-powered search is boosting efficiency for the digital workplace
    Lucidworks Recorded: Oct 29 2019 61 mins
    Your employees have a full spectrum of content and data both sourced within and external to the enterprise. It can be an overwhelming amount of information, easy to get lost in. And that can slow down the process of making profitable business decisions. AI-powered smart search is the key to harnessing that data. Machine learning can connect employees to the info they need right when they need it, eliminate unproductive, dead-end hunts by surfacing more valuable, more relevant data, and let employees and teams in every department combine those new capabilities into real-world, high-value solutions for complex problems of every size.

    With data eating the world, search will surround everything we do. User needs and expectations are evolving fast, so enterprise search technologies need to keep pace and stay robust. Join this VB Live event to learn how machine learning and search combine to complement traditional workflows and boost efficient data discovery and insight, what operationalized AI means, and how it applies to search and machine learning, and more.

    Data Privacy Laws: Compliance and Consent Management Tips for Marketers
    Sam Ngo and Connor Bouthot Recorded: Oct 10 2019 46 mins
    New data privacy laws continue to roll out worldwide. Browsers are doubling down on user-tracking behaviors. And with GDPR-esque laws coming to the U.S. — including the CCPA — companies need to provide a standard of consumer privacy.

    What most brands don’t realize, though, is these data privacy measures offer an opportunity to build trust with their customers and garner greater customer loyalty. Consumers expect to give up data — if they get something in return.

    A CDP with identity resolution functionality can help you unify and activate customer data on their terms. Be prepared to take advantage of new data privacy laws by joining our webinar.

    How Insights Can Help Brands Hit the Right Note When Supporting Causes
    Zoe Dowling, Ph.D., SVP Research, FocusVision Dec 17 2019 7:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    "It's long been recognized that brands need to identify and operate by their 'greater purpose'; to stand for something beyond their immediate functional benefits.  For some brands, this is ingrained in their DNA and it fuels each move they make (think Patagonia and The Body Shop).  For others, it make be on a smaller scale, championing causes at varying levels from local ads to large national sponsorships.  When it comes to socially charged causes, the waters can be challenging to navigate - how to support without offending.

    Given this backdrop, we wondered how brands have been navigating causes around diversity and inclusion; specifically showing support for the LGBTQ community.  So we asked.  We spoke to 1,500 people across the US to explore their feelings on LGBTQ in advertising, whether brands were doing an appropriate job representing the community and how this impacted their purchasing decisions.  Join us to hear what we learned, both around consumer sentiment as well as the role of insights in helping brands hit the right now.

    In this webinar, we will cover:

    - The results of our recent study into LGBTQ representation within advertising
    - Implications for brands as they look to support a social cause
    - A reflexive look at our study and what we'd do differently next time around"

  • The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    VentureBeat Feb 18 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.

    Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.

    There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!

    You'll learn:
    *How to identify your AI needs
    *How to identify your decision criteria
    *The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
    *How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy
