  • Mobile is taking over as the pre-eminent way companies connect with customers.

    For sales. For service. For feedback. For support. For … everything.

    In just 8 years, smartphones have taken over the world. In just 3.5 years, smartphone media consumption has overtaken television. In just 5 years, we have been talking on our phones the same amount, but our data usage has skyrocketed more than 3400%. Mobile commerce has jumped 123% just in the first quarter of this year. It's happening. It's happening right now.

    We're taking a hard look at how mobile is the new normal. Your customers expect it. Business demands it. Mobile marketing automation is only used by 1.5% of businesses today -- and those businesses are making a killing because they understand the unique relationships we have grown to expect with our mobile devices.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how psychology meets technology with mobile marketing automation
    * Improve customer engagement and retention through marketing efforts
    * Get a running start on using the mobile revolution to drive massive engagement

    Speakers: John Koetsier, VP Research, VentureBeat

  • For today’s digitally demanding customer, a rich, personalized customer
    experience is quite simply the cost of doing business. It is no longer a differentiator, but the standard. It is a journey defined by the customer, who is setting a new pace in an intensely personal race that, in their mind, only involves one runner. This leaves leading marketers to question where and how the next great evolution will happen…and whether their organizations are set up to leap ahead of the curve. Are they set up to thrive, or will they become irrelevant and eventually obsolete?

    Agility becomes a key denominator in this new marketing equation. With customer knowledge dispersed across systems of records, insights, interactions and an array of new sources of data, organizations need the business agility to be able to leverage insight from these disparate sources of information. This also requires the ability for the entire customer experience to be optimized—not just the deployment of campaigns—so that opportunities can be captured faster in order to beat out rivals also looking to connect through revitalized customer experience strategies.

    We will be joined by Pitney Bowes’ Jeff Goldberg, Product Marketing Lead for Customer Information Management, who will share an expert perspective around creation of a digital marketing record for increasing conversion rates and improving marketing communications overall.

    Full list of speakers are:

    Liz Miller, SVP, Marketing - CMO Council

  • In 2007, a CMO Council study tracked how senior marketers were embracing the customer in real-time, personalized engagements. Were we realizing the goal of “right message, right time, right channel” in our communications? In the study, 47 percent of marketing respondents felt they did not have a full view into the profitability of a customer, including access to customer lifetime value insights. 60 percent predicted personalization as a key route to maximize customer revenue, but the majority indicated they lacked the metrics needed to effectively leverage data to personalize experiences.
    Eight years later, many marketers feel they are in the same position as they struggle to optimize the customer journey using real-time insights and intelligence that enable them to craft robust customer experiences where revenue – not engagement metrics, like clicks or views- is the goal.
    While marketers still look to power experiences with personalization and relevance, customers now have different needs. Service expectations—from self-service to always-available personal or face-to-face service—rapidly increase as customers are not willing to wait for resolutions to issues. Our customers have new and more compelling options from disruptors. Despite years of loyalty building, customers are more willing to leave a brand in favor of experiences and service options that deprioritize pricing and promotions. Customers now demand to be known and heard.
    To address some of these issues and better understand how real-time marketing decisions are directly impacting customer engagement in this age of “un-marketing,” the CMO Council, in partnership with Pegasystems, will present a strategic overview of how marketers are feeding the always-on marketing brain. Gone are the strategies that simply look to maximize campaign engagements as they are being replaced by customer journeys that traverse acquisition, retention and advocacy to maximize customer lifetime value.

  • Over the course of numerous acquisitions, ACI Worldwide, a leader in banking and payment solutions, found themselves in the untenable situation so many firms find themselves in today — a giant content hairball made more challenging by departmental silos and disparate content management and delivery systems. The company realized that to overcome the obstacles of their legacy approach to managing content, they would have to rethink they way they work. The challenge involved designing, funding, and implementing an unified content strategy — one that would help the firm migrate the content stored in different content management systems — and authored by different content creation teams — into a single CMS.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a one-hour progress report with Jeanette LeBlanc, Principal Information Developer at ACI Worldwide, who will discuss the challenges the company has had to overcome as they made the move to SDL LiveContent Publication Manager and the XML authoring tool, XMetaL. Attendees will learn of some of the issues faced by the team as they’ve worked to migrate content from unstructured Microsoft Word, Adobe FrameMaker, and other content creation applications into structured DITA XML. Although the team is only half-way through implementation, the lessons learned are valuable for any team hoping to make a similar move.

    Abstract:

    Personalization is critical to the success of your business model. Many of the most innovative and beloved companies in recent history -- think Facebook, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and Hulu, just to name a few -- have transformed customer expectations and disrupted their individual industries. Now customers expect it. It increases clicks, open rates and conversions -- usually by pretty substantial margins. But -- how do you DO it?

    The process is different at every step of the customer journey and there's a lot that goes into personalization. What's more, there's a lot more ways to reach your customers than ever. Personalizing display ads is very different from personalizing emails or a mobile app experience. The data, content, and delivery mechanisms necessary to personalize those messages changes -- and so should your strategy.

    We're taking a holistic look at the art of personalization -- from customer expectations to ROI. We'll show you a new way of looking at identity -- from both the customer's behavior to predicting their behaviors.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how to collect data that helps visualize the customer's journey
    * Get tips on one of the biggest challenges to increasing the ROI of marketing automation
    * Access the theory of identity enrichment
    * Gain insight into best practices for personalization in different channels

    Register for this webinar today and get started doing personalization right!

  • The first step in running successful webinar programmes is determining what success means to your organisation. Whether it’s brand awareness, new leads, or sales pipeline, the foundation of an effective webinar programme lies in having clearly defined success metrics.

  • Performance-driven content is the future for content marketers and content strategists. With roots in data-driven marketing, a performance-driven content structure sets up businesses for successful content. Drawing from a variety of inputs—user research and behaviors, web analytics, industry trends and social listening—performance-driven models help content marketers and strategists make decisions around future content priorities. Done well, in a repeatable and sustainable model, performance driven content will drive personalization, omnichannel and customer-centric content experiences. Kevin Nichols has built such models for large brands for years. He even wrote an entire book, Enterprise Content Strategy: A Project Guide, structured around the premise of performance driven content framework.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler with his special guest, Global Content Strategist Kevin Nichols, and learn what performance driven content is, how to set up a sustainable model to support it, and the pitfalls to avoid along the way. You will also learn why it is important for businesses and how it can enable and empower personalization and omnichannel customer-centric experiences. Want to know if this talk is for you? Check out Kevin’s video blog where he deconstructs a performance driven content model and provides a brief but robust overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMLwkAuM9Wo
  • With limited marketing resource and budget, your content has to be timely, engaging and everlasting. But like a supernova, does it flash hot and burn out quickly?

    Your content works hard to explain and describe your organisation's value. Carefully constructed, thoughtfully created, and no expense spared, you launch it into the atmosphere with great expectations. But does it actually generate the tidal wave of support and interest you want and longevity it deserves?

    By building an influencer Community, you'll have a better understanding of the type of content that will resonate more highly, and you'll have a waiting audience of people ready to help you share it across their networks.

    Join Christie Fidura, former manager of the Adobe Community for Europe, Middle East and Africa, to learn how to create a Community whom will appreciate your content, share it with their networks and help you keep it evergreen.
  • Beloved brands are enabled to penetrate new markets by building on the gains of already fought battles. Mattel’s ‘Barbie’ is one of those. Barbie, like other brands, is not only a lifestyle being interpreted for today, but follows an image that was instituted decades ago. Generation after generation of little girls, young and old, are taught to imagine through the eyes, ears, world and those “got-to-have” accessories. Even though we all eventually grow up, our imagination and our Barbies are timeless. Maintaining the identity of what was, while introducing Barbie to a whole new generation and culture, is paramount to Mattel’s success. Her packaging: The way she looks. The way she sounds. The way she feels and smells are all integral to our enjoyment and nostalgia. Regional institutions and localized marketing are as critical to a market launch as they are to market domination. With that said, Brand fidelity is a focus that cannot be under thought. Mattel thinks so, so should you.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Todd Resnick, CEO and President at The Voice Company, and learn how to achieve timeless success through timeless marketing; discover how not to mess with a winning formula; but enable it through new technologies and avenues, and find out how to consider your audience and adapt it to the market while keeping the integrity of your product.

  • Which metrics are provided by your translation vendor on your project invoices? If you can count them with one hand, chances are that you are missing out on some important data. Metrics can help you pinpoint delays, hold team members and vendors accountable, and keep a clear blueprint of how your process works so that you can keep the translation cycle moving on a consistent path of improvement.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Scott Carothers, Senior Globalization Executive of Kinetic the Technology Agency, and learn which metrics hold the most value to your enterprise.
  • Content strategy has seen an interesting evolution of focus — from authoring and publishing smarter to embracing social media and personalization. The Internet of Things adds another layer of complexity: event-triggered communication. Devices and services can (and do) talk to each other in fragments, but at some point information about those interactions need to be organized and communicated in a human-friendly form. Proper localization planning is critical in this model.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Bill Swallow of Scriptorium Publishing Services, as they look at content development and localization practices for these scenarios.
  • The world of content delivery has changed. While paper remains an option for some (and is mandatory in some cases), electronic delivery systems are the choice for many. As display technologies become smaller (and are now both carry-able and wearable) and almost ubiquitous (screens in cars and home appliances) we have to rethink how we segment and organize our content so it can be displayed in its most effective manner on these different devices.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Charles Cooper, VP of the Rockley Group as he explains how you can design or update your content/localization strategy to take advantage of new and future content delivery systems.
  • We may not know what the future holds, but we can be confident as we move towards it. In this content marketing webinar, we take a look at emerging trends in content marketing, distribution and analytics. What will change? What will stay the same? And what marketing fundamentals will be useful as you move into the future?

    Join Chris Brosnahan, Content Manager at Hay Group, as he shares tips from his experience in his career in content, marketing and communications, and looks at lessons from a classic marketing text that have remained relevant over the years.

    Learn how to setup, implement, monitor and adjust your strategies, ensuring you get the best results possible.
  • One of the main problems facing B2B marketers is that content simply doesn’t work as well as it used to. We have to get used to a new normal – where content is everywhere and we have to compete harder to be seen. But we can’t simply throw more money at the problem; we need a new solution. Agile content marketing is an approach that reduces costs and improves quality – for those brave enough to embrace it. Attend this webinar to find out how to:

    • Be more competitive against B2B rivals
    • Make better use of resources
    • Streamline processes
    • Reduce costs
    • Create outstanding B2B content

    - How emotion is an essential element of great storytelling
    - Balancing structure and planning with spontaneous events
    - Necessity of a talented "crew"

    Hi there [first_name],

    We know that using personalization in marketing works, and not just in isolated incidents either. In looking at case studies across industries and channels, from email to web to location-based marketing, it produces amazing results.

    But consumers are worried about the use of their personal data: 96% of American consumers are concerned about data privacy, and 80% of consumers have changed their privacy settings. Today's customers have legitimate worries over the type of data marketers want to use in messaging, and advertising.

    In this webinar we'll deliver the latest research into how consumers feel about personalization. We'll tell you what consumers want, what they hate, and best practices on how to introduce personalization without being "creepy."

    After this webinar, you'll:

    * Know what types of personalization are acceptable, and which to avoid
    * Learn the correct process for on-boarding personalization, and how to manage when consumers opt-out
    * Understand what the future of personalization looks like, for both B2C and B2B organizations
    * Get an overview of the rules and regulations at play
    * Find out the marketing technologies that will save all marketers from crossing the "uncanny valley" into "Creepyville"

    If you're a CMO, SVP/VP of Marketing, Marketing Director, or Marketing Manager, you won't want to miss this. Sign up now...

    This webinar will be based on Stewart Rogers’ VB Insight report, which released on July 22, 2015.

  • There's a lot of B2B content 'units' out there. A lot of 'stories' being told. To succeed, it's not enough to stand out, you have to matter. This session looks at why this is, how to matter - and secure both love and sales too.

    Join this webinar with Simon Sanders, Head of Content at Pulse, to learn how to make B2b content so good - that customers fall in love with you. And then buy from you.
  • To translate or not to translate? Local Ad-agency or marketing teams are much better suited for crafting relevant local copy for marketing campaigns; they understand the local culture and they aren’t restrained by being “true to the source.” The conundrum that enterprises are facing though, is they just can’t afford the cost, time, and resource investment to have a marketer in every locale. For the enterprise, translations isn’t about getting your message into local language, it’s about doing it at scale. Translation may be the worst way to get quality local copy… but it’s the only way that furthers business goals.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and his special guest, Wayne Bourland, Global Localization Team Director of Dell, for this free one-hour webinar. Listen as Wayne challenges perceptions that the reason companies translate marketing is not to get good quality local copy. If getting the best possible local copy was the only goal, companies would either use in-market employees or ad agencies with experience in local markets... or they wouldn't translate. Ultimately, translation may be the worst way to get quality local copy, but doing it at scale any other way just costs too much, takes too much time and requires too much overhead.
