  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Jan 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users

    Speakers:
    * Maximo Cavazzani, founder and CEO, Etermax (Trivia Crack)
    * Eric Shashoua, CEO, Kiwi for Gmail

  • The Future of Financial Services – Utility vs Meaning The Future of Financial Services – Utility vs Meaning Justin Small, Chief Strategy Officer, The BIO Agency Mar 8 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Uber, Nike and their like, have turned branding on its head. They have created utilitarian global brands by inserting themselves into our daily lives using technology as their Trojan horse. And through this utility they have invested more meaning into their brands than any global advertising campaign ever could. Utilitarianism is the innovation frontier for financial services. How do traditional financial service companies reconfigure and transform their capabilities to innovate around their customers' needs and rebuild their brand meaning through utility, instead of advertising.
