  • According to IBM research, fully engaged customers spend three times more and are twice as likely to recommend your company. Yet time and time again, customers are being met with experiences that are not meeting their needs. Today’s buyers expect the right content to fall into place at just the right time, but only 21 percent say the marketing messages they receive are “usually relevant.” These heightened expectations—and the heightened reward from the new basic expectation of customer experience—present new questions for today’s marketing teams: Are you doing everything you can to provide a superior customer experience that is purpose-built to build loyalty and drive repeat business?

    In this webinar, the CMO Council will be joined by Rosie Judd, the Georgia Aquarium’s Digital Media Manager, as she shares the underlying strategy for one of the biggest public aquariums in the world, in addition to the incremental steps taken that directly led to increased engagement. We will also be joined by Keith Meade, Senior Account Director for IBM, who will share real-world success stories that will inspire ideas for enhancing the buyer experience before and after key customer interactions.

    Some of the topics covered in this interactive event will include:
    • New approaches to capturing and leveraging data to better drive engagement
    • Building a lifecycle marketing strategy that enhances every touchpoint and thinks beyond a campaign
    • Getting back to the basics of relationship building, including setting up welcome and post-transaction experiences that turn buyers into relationships
    • Measuring beyond opens and clicks, but making a splash with the business through loyal, engaged advocates
  • Do customers choose your brand first? This question is the essence of branding. Branding isn’t about logos, taglines, websites, or colors. Branding is about the bond you form with your customers — a bond where they choose you first.

    This is what separates average companies from what we call “sticky brands.”

    When you have a brand that works, your customers think of you first, and they come back again and again. You form real relationships with your audience. But here’s the challenge. The pace of marketing is changing rapidly, and your brand must evolve to keep up.

    In this talk, Jeremy Miller will show you how to transform your marketing to create a first choice advantage. His blend of humor, stories, and actionable ideas will inspire you to innovate and grow your brand.

    Join us on April 20th to learn:

    - How to adapt your marketing for active and inactive buyers
    - How to build relationships early and often
    - The trick to ABC — Always Be Converting

  • While it may sound like a staggering figure, only two to three percent of potential customers will share identifying information as they browse your company's products or services across digital channels. That leaves a tremendous amount - 97 percent - of visitors as 'unknown,' yet a vast majority of today's marketers focus on providing a personalized experience only after an identifier is provided.

    Even in an anonymous state, visitors are leaving behind valuable pieces of data that provide insight into their interests, preferences, and purchase intent. On Thursday, April 14th, Andrew Jones, industry analyst and consultant, will team up with Tealium's Chief Innovation Officer, Jay Calavas, to lead an interactive discussion that explores:
    - building detailed customer profiles using anonymous data
    - developing personalized experiences -- before an identifier is provided
    - the technology solutions that enable you to capitalize on anonymous data

    We hope that you'll join us.

    Where do you create value and how can you make technology the enabler of your connected customers journey?

  • There is little doubt that marketers have made a commitment to customer experience—from developing roadmaps to an uncompromising customer journey to the development of data-rich personalized engagements. But what is next? Has customer experience become too buzzed about? Are we really re-thinking customer experience strategies, or are we just applying new buzzwords?

    How we think about customer experience must evolve. Without this continuous evolution, transformation becomes impossible. To debate and discuss the big question of what’s next, the CMO Council has invited three marketers to join an interactive roundtable discussion that will focus on everything from transformation to the next conversation around experiences and expectations. Join us for this hour-long conversation, where live viewers will be able to ask questions and provide their own insights and thinking and where we will take on issues around media, lifecycle and insights.

    Some of the early questions being asked of the panel will include:

    •How has the landscape changed, and how are customers valuing and weighing new points of engagement?
    •Where have we gone wrong with CRM and campaign management? Are we just automating reactions, or are we building relationships?
    •What are the new points of insight and customer voice that need to be incorporated into our strategies? Has our quest for data moved us farther away from the real voice of the customer?
  • It’s easy to get sucked in by alarmist headlines about shrinking investor confidence. But hear this: last year, more than 400 VC’s poured over $11 billion into 323 marketing tech startups. For martech, it was a record year. There’s no question that software startup funding is booming, and 2016 is off to a similarly torrid start.

    The unprecedented growth has been experienced across all factors: deal sizes, frequency, and valuations. Yes, VC's cooled on growth capital investments, particularly in tech at the end of last year. There were a number of reasons: fluctuating financial markets, markdowns from institutional investors, global conflict, and others.

    But what's clear is that investors are making a strong pivot to value revenue over growth in the later stages. That's an important distinction, and will shape the industry moving forward.

    So what does all that mean for you? Based on the most current Q1 research, we’ll break down what kinds of companies investors are responding to, which VCs are leading the pack, and what’s important to them when considering where to park their investment dollars, i.e. what you need to do to get their attention.

    In this webinar, you’ll:

    * Learn which types of companies are gaining funding, and where in the marketing tech universe they fit.
    * Discover where we're seeing the biggest areas of consolidation.
    * Find out who the most involved / most active VCs are.
    * Understand implications for investors, vendors, and most importantly marketing technology buyers and users.
    * Learn how to get noticed by top VCs, straight from investors.

  • A picture is no longer worth “a thousand words.” In fact, Forrester’s VP Principal Analyst, Dr. James McQuivey, recently valued one minute of moving pictures, (aka video/animation) as being worth more like “1.8 million words!”

    People are visual learners. That’s why, in a world where B2B stories are increasingly growing more complex and data-centric, content marketers are turning to animation - and succeeding. Animated ads with just 6 to 9 seconds of animation are averaging 138% higher conversion rates than those without, according to Rocket Fuel’s Guide to Creative Optimization. Animation is no longer just for Pixar and Dreamworks. It’s also for you and your business.

    Join us on the BrightTALK Academy as we delve into some of the strategies and tactics for leveraging animation to increase the impact of your content marketing programs. In the webinar you will learn to:
    - Maximize your speed to meaning in the world of “8-second attention spans”
    - Strategize the types of stories that best lend themselves to animation and why
    - Captivate new audiences through multiple animation formats
    - Generate more conversions with some simple animation tactics
  • Marketing analytics is no longer just about tying in marketing initiatives with revenues. Top marketers are now able to predict the outcomes of their marketing efforts and optimise them accordingly.

    This video will look at the technologies, the metrics and processes you need to put in place to achieve this level of sophistication.

    Join Julian Buhagiar from BrightTALK as he moderates the discussion in a live panel session.

  • RaaS is the concept of “Referrals as a Service” as a way to develop and harness referral partners. The phrase was first coined by Randy Fahrbach, Sr. Mgr. of GoTo Channel Development at Citrix. Randy joins Amplifinity CEO, Larry Angeli, on this webcast to discuss why RaaS is working at Citrix and what other Channel Managers can learn from their experience.

    What you’ll learn:

    · What RaaS is

    · How RaaS works at Citrix

    · What you can do to start developing your RaaS strategy
  • Learn about best practices that allow companies to transform the mobile customer experience

    Consider this: every interaction with your customers is your “customer experience.”

    In order to be the champion of meaningful interactions, you must create data-driven marketing experiences that leverage everything that you know about your users, including their lifecycle stage. But that’s only half of the story; today’s interactions are all happening on the go, in people’s mobile moments and especially through mobile apps.

    We are in a brave, new world of data + mobile - and that’s no small feat for marketers to overcome. If data gathered from users' mobile moments has the potential to transform every business, and every customer relationship, what does it take to be successful?

    In this webinar, hear Localytics, and our guest Forrester Research, discuss the data and mobile best practices that will allow companies to transform their customer experience, making marketing more personal to their customers. Topics of conversation include:

    •How is mobile driving changes in consumers' expectations, and what must organizations do to rise to the challenge?
    •What are the best practices for building strong relationships built on data?
    •What are the first steps in building a data-centric and mobile-first marketing organization?
  • According to a study from the Content Marketing Institute, 65 percent of B2B marketers in the manufacturing industry believe that producing engaging content is their top challenge specific to maximizing the impact and efficacy of their content marketing initiatives. In this same study, B2B marketers revealed that, on average, they are leveraging some 13 different content marketing tactics across six social media channels and an average of three paid media resources.

    This punctuates the increasingly complex web of engagement channels that, woven together, craft today’s customer experience. It also sheds light on a critical issue: the mass of content being produced might not be the most impactful or effective, thus missing the intended target and diminishing the return on content investment.

    How are marketers confronting these issues of meshing content marketing and customer experience strategies across a growing digital landscape? In an age when customers expect the world to be available to them in perfect local context, how are marketers responding with highly relevant, contextual, impactful, content-rich experiences, regardless of channel or location? What silos need to be broken down in order to realize real ROI from both content and experiences? As the digital world enables rapid globalization, how have customer expectations for intense localization made content and engagement strategies even more rewarding?
  • Virtual reality is one of the most talked about marketing trends of the moment. Sceptics argue that the technology is over-hyped. But is it time for B2B brands to start thinking seriously about VR content?

    In this webinar, Simon and David cut to the chase. They highlight real examples of businesses using VR to deliver tangible benefits. And they explore the powerful contribution the technology can make to B2B marketing strategies. A specific area of focus will be sales and marketing surrounding high-value investments with long-tail consideration.

    Viewers will gain:

    Insight into potential B2B applications of VR.
    An understanding of how VR investment can add value and enhance top-of-funnel elimination.
    Ideas for enhancing customer service with VR technology.
    A realistic view of the investment and dedication required to get VR off the ground.
  • According to a CMO Council study, “Closing the Gap: Understanding the Sales and Marketing Alignment Imperative,” some 46 percent of sales and marketing executives felt that in order to maximize sales across the organization, the level of action on opportunities needed to be boosted, and the speed to action needed to be accelerated.

    Despite this clear call to work smarter and faster, sales productivity improvements have been slow to materialize. According to CSO Insights, only 33 percent of a sales representative’s time is spent actively selling. Not only is sales struggling to push away the inefficiencies to build those critical relationships, but it can also be hard to actually get sales teams up and running. According to Accenture, 42.5 percent of sales reps take 10 months or longer to become productive enough to contribute to company goals.

    So where and how can businesses empower the front line while sparking profitability through accelerated sales productivity? Are there new calls to action that sales leaders can respond to in an effort to streamline inefficient processes, eliminate waste and remove friction from sales engagement? How are smart organizations growing at scale while remaining compliant and error-free in their engagements with customers and prospects?

    These are just some of the issues that the CMO Council, in partnership with Oracle, will explore in a one-hour, interactive webcast focused on productivity, profitability and opportunities to foster revenue. Joining the discussion will be experts and market leaders in sales and operational effectiveness to share where and how they are maximizing profitability while empowering sales teams and resources to work in a more nimble, agile and lucrative environment.
  • Marketing cloud terminology may be ringing in the ears of savvy marketers everywhere, but using cloud-based technology effectively is more than a dream of Silicon Valley wonks.

  • A Brave New (connected) World.

    For decades the marketing of technology has fallen into two distinct silos. On one side are the products and services that are sold to the end consumer. This marketing is known as Business to Consumer, or B2C marketing. On the other hand, there are the companies that sell products and services to other companies. This is known as Business to Business marketing, or B2B.

    Unfortunately, the world of connected devices, known by the more familiar term, Internet of Things (IoT), is changing all of this. The days of marketing, and marketing platforms, being built around the concept of a standalone product or sales channel are going away. In their place, we are entering a new generation of products whose very reason for being is their ability to connect to the world around them, to other products, share data, and become part of a larger ecosystem.

    This idea of an ecosystem is at the heart of the problem for marketers when it comes to IoT. In reality, what is needed is neither B2C nor B2B.

    Marketing organizations need to start planning now to capitalize on IoT to drive customer engagement and demand generation goals.

    In the webinar, you will learn
    • How IoT will effect B2C and B2B marketing
    • About the Business to Ecosystem (B2E) and what means for your marketing plans
    • Which marketing technologies and strategies you should be considering in the brave new world of B2E marketing
  • Webinars are a powerful tool for engaging prospects and filling the sales funnel, and their increasing popularity amongst B2B marketing and sales teams is a testament to this. However, developing effective presentations for your online audience is easier said than done.When delivering remote presentations, speakers are often competing with email, social media, YouTube and the likes.So, how do you get your key message to resonate with your audience in an engaging, persuasive, and memorable way in this era of perpetual digital distraction?

    In the age of Big Data, this is where science comes in. Research has shown that there are numerous tactics to take your webinar presentations to the next level.

    In this session, Susannah Shattuck, Content Marketing Manager at Prezi, and Dallas Jessup, Content Marketing Manager at BrightTALK, will narrow down the must-implement tactics and discuss:
    - How to be a more persuasive presenter - backed by science;
    - Sure-fire ways to ensure your message is ingrained into your audience’s brains;
    - Why you should focus on visuals and stories for revenue generating webinar presentations.

  • Marketers are ignoring one of the most fundamental customer needs: community.

But we have all been blind to one of the most fundamental needs in human life that only comes second to food and shelter: the need to belong.

    The stuff of the human condition is to belong, to make meaning, feel secure, have order within chaos and create identity. Marketers ignore these constituent building blocks of humanity at their peril.

    This webinar will explain what a branded community is, why it is fundamental for marketing now and in the future, and how to build one for your organisation.

    - Define and optimize critical marketing strategies
  • If you build it, they will come. Right. That may be the hope of many mobile app publishers, but it’s not even remotely true when it comes to the battle for quality users in 2016. And while most app publishers know it’s essential to have a fierce user acquisition strategy in place, what that consists of and how they put it into practice is another thing altogether.
