  • Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 33 mins
    Let’s face it. Most consumers are less likely to click on keyword searches served up by Facebook than they are to run in place to get their 10,000 steps on FitBit. Does it pay to pay for social advertising marketshare? That is the existential dilemma faced by all social media marketers.

    Take Instagram. Once upon a time, they were the darling of social advertising and engagement, but a recent report indicates a 40% drop off in the interaction rate in 2015. According to some experts, one of Instagram’s biggest changes was an increase in advertising; namely that instagram ads were pushed out to everyone around the world. Like a warning to social advertisers everywhere, the all ads all the time approach resulted in a dramatic decrease in engagement.

    With more engagement comes more responsibility and an increasingly intelligent audience will be quick to yawn and then to resent an overly aggressive advertising effort. Join us for a discussion of what went wrong and how to do social advertising right.

    In this webinar you’ll learn to avoid similar mistakes, including how to:
    * Use not abuse user engagement
    * Target and personalize ads to maximize ROI
    * Understand the difference between social advertising and advertising
    * Identify which social channels are most effective for which advertising

  • Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Dean Takahashi, Games Beat Editor, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 62 mins
    Most games need to make money. It’s a simple reality. In free-to-play games, this can be a formidable challenge when players are under no obligation to pay. Forcing players to pay is not a good plan - they’ll only leave disgruntled. The trick is to inspire player engagement, long-term retention, and multiple payments. But that’s easier said than done, right?

    We can show you how to rock a bottom line without turning off your best players, and make cash hand over fist in the process. The secret lies in data - what to measure, what to ignore, and which actions to take based on those KPIs.

    Using data has been proven to increase profits and player satisfaction. Sound too good to be true? Join the webinar and discover how data covers all bases you need for a lucrative game.

    Learn how to:
    * Target the right players, and the key engagement strategies that work
    * Maximize profits from ads and IAP, and which players are most receptive
    * Predict and measure the lifetime value of players by acquisition channel
    * Apply killer strategies, taking lessons from the most successful games
    * Unlock the lesser-known data secrets behind monetization

    Customer experience is a tough one -- we all have seen those businesses who think they're building a great scalable customer experience, but have customers who might not have the same opinion. And it's not enough to build a great product -- we define ourselves in the marketplace through each and every interaction we have with the customer.

    You might understand that the reason you're doing something is for a very valid business reason, but the customer may interpret that action entirely differently. And your world class customer service can sometimes start to falter as your startup organization adds more resources and more layers -- good for your growth but sometimes risking the very people who made your company successful. Ouch.

    Customer engagement doesn't take costly tools and high priced business analysts -- but it's also not always intuitive. We're going to show you some no-nonsense ways to keep customers loyal and driving growth while also building amazing customer experience that scales along with your business. Our panel of experts will share tactics and strategies that will help you kick start and refine your approach to delivering service -- and helps your company grow even faster.

    In this webinar you'll:

    * Understand what your customer wants and needs throughout the product lifecycle.
    * Learn strategies for rethinking the role of customer service within the organization
    * Create a new process for empowering employees to retain a top tier customer experience
    * Identify potential obstacles that may be causing customer attrition

  • Top 5 Ways Next-Generation Masking is Changing How Businesses Prevent Breach Top 5 Ways Next-Generation Masking is Changing How Businesses Prevent Breach Matthew Yeh, Delphix, Product Marketing & Olivia Zhu, Delphix, Business Technology Consultant Jun 14 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data Masking Is Changing How Businesses Prevent Data Breach
    With data breaches on the rise, businesses are heavily investing in solutions to safeguard sensitive data. However, businesses too often fail to secure confidential information in environments used for development, testing, training, and analytics. These so-called non-production environments can represent over 80% of the surface area of risk for breach. Data masking has emerged as the de facto standard for protecting these environments from insider and outsider threats alike. Masking replaces sensitive data with fictitious yet realistic data, preserving its value for non-production use while completely eliminating the risk of breach. Moreover, a new generation of solutions couples data masking with advanced virtualization technology to secure and deliver data -- without the slowdown caused by traditional methods.
    Register and discover:

    The key reasons why next-generation data masking reduces risk of breach
    How masking compares to other security approaches such as encryption
    Why next-generation masking is essential for businesses that must comply with HIPAA, PCI DSS, and SOX

And do you know what part of the code is really causing the "hang up”?

    HPE Network Virtualization emulates real network behavior so you can validate and test applications to ensure that there are no failures in production and user experience will be above par after deployment. It also provides optimization recommendations on a code level for immediate remediation of issues and bottlenecks.

  • ASO - Master Class -Making ASO Your Routine To Rocket Your App Up The Charts ASO - Master Class -Making ASO Your Routine To Rocket Your App Up The Charts Peggy Anne Salz, Analyst, VentureBeat Jun 15 2016 7:30 pm UTC 30 mins
    In Part 3 of this six-part masterclass series we explore the popular myths around App Store Optimization (ASO), showing what flies and what fails. If you think keywords are 'king', or have built a strategy based on the power of A/B testing to help you make the tough choices about app marketing, then think again.

    But this masterclass isn't just a chance to reality-check your preconceived notions around ASO and app marketing. It's also structured to provide you the tools and tips to map a realistic and regular ASO routine that allows you address and optimize the key elements of your app presence in the proper order.

    ASO (which we show in our forthcoming VB Insight Practitioner’s Guide) is not a "set-it-and-forget it" activity. It consists of keywords that you should optimize regularly, to app screenshots that you should update at least quarterly.

    Learn to distinguish the myths from the industry best practices, and monitor the metrics that will tell you you're on the right track by attending this VentureBeat webinar with Oliver Kern — noted growth-hacker and Chief Commercial Officer at Lockwood Publishing — and Peggy Anne Salz, author of the report.

    In this half hour masterclass, you'll:

    * Put urban legends around ASO to the test in a no-holds barred 'mythbusters' marathon.
    * Determine how (and when) changes to your app store presence will drive positive results.
    * Identify the tools, techniques and strategies that will encourage installs and boost sharing.
