  • The lure of data-led tactics for web re-targeting and advanced customer experience applications is intoxicating for marketers, particularly when customers demand relevance and reward personalization with increased frequency and volume of purchase. But while this age of data-led marketing has opened up a world of possibility for engagement, personalization and real-time, one-to-one experiences, it has also prompted customers to grab indelible paint to draw the “creepy line”—that point at which knowing the customer turns from creating a relevant experience to exhibiting stalker-like behavior. The magic for marketers is not just understanding their customers, but understanding where that line in experience has been drawn…and knowing that while there are universal truths to engagement, the repercussions of crossing the creepy line can be detrimental to a customer’s desire to engage with a brand.

    To address where and how marketers must engage and interact in a customer-defined scope of individualization and personalization, the CMO Council, in partnership with Teradata, will host a one-hour webcast to kick off the discussion around just how close we can and should get to the creepy line. Joining the conversation will be brand leaders who have made strides in driving relevant experiences that add value to the customer’s journey, in addition to customer intelligence experts to share key trends, mandates and best practices in moving beyond mass personalization to achieve true individualization.

    Abstract:

    In a 2,000-product marketing technology ecosystem, marketing clouds attempt to bring all the functionality you need into one place, in one system of record, with one unified profile of your customers, and one unified, simple user interface to control it all.

    At least, that’s the theory. To find and report the reality, we surveyed 1,483 marketing technologists, studied marketing cloud penetration data on 10s of millions of websites, combed through vendor financials, conducted more than 20 personal interviews, collected over 150 feature and functionality data points on 19 vendors, and gathered and analyzed revenue share statistics for key vendors.

    Our webinar will be a condensed overview of our VB Insight Marketing Clouds report, which covered:

    - What is a marketing cloud, anyways?
    - Features of marketing clouds (plus: most used, least used)
    - Marketing cloud penetration data, including who is using them
    - The 5 different kinds of marketing clouds
    - Our scoring matrix
    - Vendors’ scores on 12 different categories
    - VB’s “best bet” marketing clouds for enterprise, midmarket, small companies, and startups
    - What existing marketing cloud clients say about what ROI they’re getting, what effect having a marketing cloud has had on their marketing, how long they took to research marketing clouds, how long it took to set up their marketing clouds, how much they intend to invest next year.
