Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Email Marketing

  • Before every company executive sits down to write a blog, pull together a slideshow, or provide data for an infographic, marketers must come up with an overarching strategy for their content marketing initiative.

    Without this, consumers will see a scattershot approach that doesn't fit with your organization's messaging – and they'll miss out on the opportunity to learn more about your business. Do it well and you'll have forged the foundation for real connections between the faces of your org and your customers, separating yourself from competitors and producing a return on your content marketing investment.

    Given that so many companies today use content marketing, how can you rise over your competitors? How can your content sparkle, capturing consumers' eyes (or ears), versus the virtual noise of paid and unpaid content filling the Internet and mobile devices?

    This VentureBeat webinar stars some of the top experts in content marketing. When it concludes you'll know:

    • How to design a content marketing program that complements your marketing initiatives
    • The way to find your voice – and how to adhere to it across media and platforms
    • Which internal professionals to target for particular platforms (and how to get them to agree to do it)
    • The benefits of content marketing, such as lead generation, expanded social presence, cementing brand recognition, and building individual executives' brands
    • How to determine the ROI of content marketing, plus the tools and metrics to use.

    Speakers:
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VB Insight
    * Corey Weiner, COO, Jun Group
    * Chase Hooley, Senior Manager, Content Marketing, MapR Technologies
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat


    This webinar will be based on Stewart Rogers' VB Insight report, which will be published in February, 2016.

  • Evidence is mounting that traditional batch and blast email marketing is broken. Without the ability to smartly segment and truly personalize email campaigns based on consumers’ actual behaviors on web and mobile, brands are simply turning up the volume in an attempt to rise above the noise.

Join the upcoming webinar, “5 Ways to Use Mobile Behavioral Data to Send Engaging Emails” to see how brands can create impactful emails that are ideal for a mobile-first world.

  • Marketing automation platforms (MAPs) help to identify, qualify, convert, and grow customers. It does this by enabling marketers to define rules and processes by which to engage customers at greater scale and with greater relevance, driving a demand generation overall strategy.

    Marketers using marketing automation are substantially increasing key metrics like demand generation, leads, conversions, and revenue. We find in our own research that 80% of MAP users see their leads increase, and 77% see conversions increase.

    Yet only a fraction of businesses are using marketing automation for demand generation today. Why?

    First and foremost, it’s hard to choose: The top challenge in vendor-selection is simply understanding the differences in functionality between them. Not only are there more vendors than ever, but more features. MAPs are made up of many different feature-sets.

    Implementation is also a challenge. Nearly three in four MAP users said they had issues or delays in getting results.

    This webinar is based on data from 243 marketing automation users. The findings cover features, pricing, and services for 24 of the top vendors. We also conducted dozens of interviews and incorporated market share close to 20 million websites.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:
    * Select the right vendor for you, based on business type, size, and industry
    * Understand and avoid delays and challenges
    * Maximize ROI by using tactics that work best

    Cross outside the U.S. borders and the need to use local language, including slang, only increases; get something translated incorrectly and it could be illegible, incorrect, or offensive. If businesses don't work with regional experts or truly know a nation's preferences they come across as arrogant, uninformed, or both. Words, though, paint only half the picture. Equally important: Cultural innuendos, monetization differences, and personalization expectations vary in each nation and region, and marketers should tailor their messages accordingly.

    The VentureBeat Insight webinar, "How to Spell Success Everywhere in the World," discusses the steps marketing pros can take to build an international message that cements their brand while tailoring it to specific regions.

  • If you've ever seen a picture of Taylor Swift or Jon Hamm in a magazine, you'll know the outfit they are wearing wearing probably cost in the region of $1-10k.

    We thought it was high time someone did that, but with marketing technology.

    In this webinar, we'll tell you which marketing technologies are most popular among the Fortune 500s of this world, and then explain how to "get the look" for considerably less. Sometimes free.

  • There's no disputing that email marketing is an integral part of successful marketing organizations, but as with all marketing channels, it's no longer enough to be the master of one siloed discipline. Sitting squarely at the intersection of technology, data, and creativity, email marketers are primed to lead the new era of customer engagement and drive true cross-channel marketing.

    We'll start this interactive discussion by exploring the three core strengths of email marketers that are critical to pioneering this new era, including:
    - strong experience with handling personally identifiable information
    - a keen eye for detail and expectation of operational excellence
    - ability to see the whole conversion path

    Then, we'll dive into how these characteristics are essential in overcoming the three key challenges email marketers now face, including:
    - the increasing difficulty to identify, reach, and engage new visitors
    - the inevitable issue of email fatigue
    - the new normal of a non-linear customer journey, due in large part to anonymous research

    We hope you'll join us on Dec. 15th.
  • Every single day, the world's internet users spend well over 150,000 aggregated years reading, watching, clicking, liking, and commenting on digital content on the two global superpowers of digital content's sites: Facebook, and Google's YouTube. And every single day, more and more of the world's $600 billion advertising spend moves from TV and other legacy media to digital.

    Cue WWIII.

    One of the hottest battlegrounds is digital video. Mobile video advertising has jumped 5X in past months, and video offers the clearest path for TV's $172.5 billion in ad spend to go digital. Facebook's been staking a claim here, and media outlets have been proclaiming Google's demise.

    We'll dig into the findings of John Koetsier's latest VB Insight report and investigate actionable strategies for today's video marketer. We're also going to talk to hot video-based marketing leaders about what works for them in their own video content -- and their biggest tips for avoiding pitfalls and costly mistakes.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    *Learn where the youth and millennial markets are watching their video content
    * Focus your marketing strategy on the right platform for your niche
    * Get contextual and in-depth data to make informed decisions about your video platform today... and tomorrow
    * Monetize your content the right way... once and for all.

  • According to a recent CMO Council study, the ability to achieve a truly personalized, enriched and highly relevant digital experience has been challenged by data availability and aggregation—and more specifically, getting to the right intelligence that can be learned from this wealth of data. “Brand Attraction From Enriched Interaction,” a report completed in partnership with IBM, reveals that only 21 percent of corporate marketers believe they are doing a very good job of captivating and engaging their audiences while only 19 percent feel they are doing a good job of creating campaigns that reach and resonate with their diverse and complex customer bases.

    But just as customers keep evolving their own expectations for experience, service and engagement from the brands they choose to do business with, global trends and technology evolutions also threaten to drive the ability to exceed customer expectations further and further out of marketing’s reach. This digital disruption that is being powered by the customer requires each marketer to look forward to spot key trends that are on the horizon so that organizations can start laying a solid foundation to enable the rapid advancement of the digital agenda.

    Join the CMO Council, in partnership with IBM Digital Experience, as we explore the opportunities, requirements, challenges and strategies needed to stay ahead of the curve and take optimal advantage of the key experience trends and transformations shaking up marketing in the coming year. Among the issues to be discussed in the interactive hour-long webcast:

    •Marketing’s reaction to how key tech trends will impact operations and business
    •Insights into where, how and why these technology trends will change how our customers choose to engage—and who customers will turn to for new experiences
    •Best practices in leveraging and integrating these technology trends, from APIs to capitalizing on the Internet of things
  • In the mobile-first era, you can reach customers anytime, anywhere. But don’t think that means a spray and pray approach across channels will work. 86% of consumers say personalization plays a role in their purchase decision and 48% say they purchase more when marketers use their interests to personalize across channels.

    Brands who are defaulting to siloed, batch-and-blast email and push marketing strategies are failing to meet these expectations, leading to lower performance, opt-outs and uninstalls.

    Successful brands overcome these challenges by orchestrating a united email and push strategy rooted in deep customer understanding. Once you understand your customer, then -- and only then -- can companies execute a communication strategy that drives customer delight and business value.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    The role of email and push messaging in a cross-channel communication strategy
    The changes in customer behavior that demand a new communication approach
    How to marry your diverse messaging channels to drive great brand experiences
    The results of adopting an integrated approach to customer communications

  • While the appointment of a CMO sends the right signal, the credentials, character and capability of this emerging C-level executive member are of critical importance to internal acceptance and permanency. Combined with title inflation in the C-suite with multiplying turfs and sub-divisions of responsibility, including “chiefs” of revenue, digital, data, customer experience, relationships, insights and innovation, chief marketing officers are constantly being challenged to fortify their positions, expand authority and assert ownership of critical leadership roles in their organizations.

    Along with trying to establish themselves in the C-Suite, global marketers are also facing an increasingly complex, distributed and digitally driven marketing ecosystem. With unmeasured pressure to better integrate and manage data, best of breed solutions, creative resources, brand assets and go-to-market functions, they are also called on to collaborate on an unprecedented level with CFOs, CIOs and COOs as well.

    A true CMO must be the CEO-in-waiting, groomed in all aspects of the business and a true leader and value-setter for the organization. Many CMOs aspire to this role, but few make it to the corner office and even less serve on corporate boards. As the realities and requirements for a CMO are reflected in the selection and appointment process, this is likely to transform.

    To get an inside look into the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council’s upcoming CMO Summit in Surrey, UK, please register for our exciting webcast that will explore key Summit topics and how the role of the CMO must be reshaped in order for the CMO to rise as a true business leader.

    Some of the broad areas we will explore include:

    ● The biggest shifts in the CMO role during the past five years
    ● What has most impacted the CMO role: talent, technology or transformation of the business and the customer?

    Further webcast details will be announced shortly.

    The good news: Organizations are willing to invest in email and related tools given its proven ROI, $38 for every $1 spent, according to VB Insight's research. The more points of contact you can correctly personalize, the stronger the bond, and those organizations pushing beyond dynamic field insertion (e.g., "Dear Jane") stand to reap the highest rewards from engagement, loyalty, and spending.

    In this webinar you'll become an email personalization powerhouse when you:

    • Learn how to can increase your email open rate and click-through rates

    • Discover new data types for personalization: It goes far beyond the recipient's name

    • Hear about the latest technologies that ease email personalization pain points – without hurting your wallet (or relationship with the CFO)

    • Figure out the best partners for your business, depending on specific requirements, vertical, existing solutions, and company size

    • Avoid the gotchas of personalization: Wrong names, outdated information, and missing data points

    As more brands develop personalized marketing, generic batch-and-blast messaging stands out for all the wrong reasons.

    Incorporating identity into marketing is a complex, two-prong process. It demands data collection and data unification from disparate sources, and delivers increased customer loyalty and higher sales. Yet 80 percent of consumer-facing companies don't understand their customers beyond basic demographics, such as age, education, and purchasing history, according to a recent VB Insight report (Identity and marketing: Capturing, unifying, and using customer data to drive revenue growth). And a whopping 96 percent of marketers admit constructing a comprehensive single view of customers is a huge challenge.

    In this interactive web event, you'll:

    * Unlock the customer data that you're missing today
    * Streamline your identity process, including detail-rich demographic information often overlooked
    * Hear insider secrets for getting that personalized message hit the customer right in the sweet spot -- driving serious bank to your bottom line.

    Speakers:

    * Andrew Jones, Analyst, VB Insight
    * Rishi Dave, CMO, Dun & Bradstreet
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat

    More speakers to be announced soon.

    This webinar is sponsored by Janrain.
  • Customers that take to social media to complain are ignored to the tune of over 280 million messages per year. The retail industry is the worst offender, ignoring eight out of ten customers on social channels.

    Understanding the tools that help drive support, and engagement is imperative, not just for your current bottom-line, but for the future. Don't forget, Google is indexing all those complaints for all to see.

    Choosing the right social media marketing tools and tactics for customer support is a ‘must do,’ not a ‘nice to have.’

    Join us to find out how to leverage social media management tools to win over unhappy customers. VentureBeat's own director of marketing technology Stewart Rogers is joined by New York Times' best-selling author Jay Baer ("Hug Your Haters" 2016) for this fast-paced half hour discussion, complete with audience interactive Q&A session.

    In this half-hour webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how to save face with your angriest customers -- and turn them into your most valuable asset.
    * Use social media management tools to curry favor with the faceless customers you don't even realize you had.
    * Increase customer engagement across the board.

    Speakers:

    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology
    * Jay Baer, social media guru and best-selling author "Hug your Haters"

  • Implementing marketing automation: breaking through the bottleneck

    More than 60 per cent of marketers use mass email blasts to stay in touch with customers, however only 13 per cent are using automation software. There are many reasons why the majoirty of companies are yet to embrace marketing automation, but, in most cases, it’s either down to a lack of time and resource; too many internal processes and stakeholder hurdles; or the inability to build a business case to gain financial backing.

    This guide will help you to overcome the challenges of implementing marketing automation within your business, including:

    The three most common business bottlenecks.
    Why you should automate your marketing.
    What can you automate? Including examples of marketing outputs you can automate.

  • While the appointment of a CMO sends the right signal, the credentials, character and capability of this emerging C-level executive member are of critical importance to internal acceptance and permanency. Combined with title inflation in the C-suite with multiplying turfs and sub-divisions of responsibility, including “chiefs” of revenue, digital, data, customer experience, relationships, insights and innovation, chief marketing officers are constantly being challenged to fortify their positions, expand authority and assert ownership of critical leadership roles in their organizations.

    Along with trying to establish themselves in the C-Suite, global marketers are also facing an increasingly complex, distributed and digitally driven marketing ecosystem. With unmeasured pressure to better integrate and manage data, best of breed solutions, creative resources, brand assets and go-to-market functions, they are also called on to collaborate on an unprecedented level with CFOs, CIOs and COOs as well.

    A true CMO must be the CEO-in-waiting, groomed in all aspects of the business and a true leader and value-setter for the organization. Many CMOs aspire to this role, but few make it to the corner office and even less serve on corporate boards. As the realities and requirements for a CMO are reflected in the selection and appointment process, this is likely to transform.

    To get an inside look into the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council’s upcoming CMO Summit in Singapore, please register for our exciting webcast that will explore key Summit topics and how the role of the CMO must be reshaped in order for the CMO to rise as a true business leader.

    Some of the broad areas we will explore include:

    ● The biggest shifts in the CMO role during the past five years
    ● What has most impacted the CMO role: talent, technology or transformation of the business and the customer?

    Further webcast details will be announced shortly.
