Are marketers running at a hundred miles an hour and, as a result, too focused on box-ticking and just ‘getting things done’, rather than being mindful of having a real impact on the business? Is this the dawn of the Breathless Marketer?
Recent research from Octopus Group found that B2B marketing directors were losing sleep over their jobs. Competitive changes and choice were driving delays in decision-making and putting them under increased pressure to meet marketing challenges with innovation and creativity. All of this and a whole marketing plan to deliver – on time and on budget.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
•The typical traits of a ‘breathless business’
•How to spot the signs of being a breathless marketer
•Creating an action plan for change based on your situation & organisation
•The Smart, Strong and Slick levers – how they work and when to pull them!
There is a misconception that infusing automation into the customer experience will make it less human, and thus less relatable, to consumers. On the contrary, companies are pioneering AI technologies to enable them to gain a deeper understanding of the people they serve, resulting in experiences that are more relevant, personal, emotional, and ultimately rewarding--for customer and company alike.
Join Assaf Baciu, head of product and co-founder of Persado, who will demonstrate how Fortune 1000 brands are leveraging machine learning to create emotional relationships with their audiences.

Too often email metrics are compiled into a report each month, collect dust and they are not used to improve marketing.
The power of email marketing is in using the rich metrics to aid decisions, rather than taking them as a look in the rear view mirror. This webinar shows you what to look for in your metrics and what actions to take, covering:
· Making better decisions with campaign metrics
· Avoiding the trap of chasing higher campaign rates
· Using business metrics not just campaign metrics
· Email insight using Google Analytics

Marketers are driven by data. That’s no secret, but as consumer attitudes shift about how data is collected, managed, and distributed, marketers need to be at the forefront of the data revolution. A recent study found that more Americans are more concerned about their online data privacy than they are about losing their primary source of income.
In this webinar, analytics industry veteran Adam Corey will walk through the changes in consumer sentiment, recent legislation, and technology shifts that affect how marketers work with data, as well as the six things every marketer should know as they build their marketing roadmaps.
How many hours do your sales and marketing teams waste on “Tyre Kicker” prospects that never buy anything?! Blue Sheep has found that organisations waste 80% of their total time chasing prospects that contribute 15-20% of the revenue and just 20% of their time on clients that provide 60-80%.
The issue happens time and again where a business is not able to identify these ‘Tyre Kickers’ early enough in the marketing-sales cycle.
Using customer insight and a unique process called ‘Money Mapping’, Jemma Hardyman – lead consultant for the Blue Sheep Data Services team – will discuss how all B2B organisations can utilize simple analytics and segmentation techniques to ensure you devote your marketing and sales efforts on the right prospects that are going to spend big and stay longer!
You will learn:
- Most beneficial ways of segmenting your database

Call it what you want-- the customer 360, a single view of the customer, a unified customer profile -- it’s clear that, as businesses, we need it. What’s not as clear is how to pick a technology to pull it off.
With the number of technologies vying for this central component of the tech stack (not to mention the number complicating things by providing another stream of data), it’s bewildering to even consider where to begin. And looking at promises on the market…vendors aren’t making it easy.
EDWs (enterprise data warehouses), DMPs (data management platforms), CDPs (customer data platforms), the UDH (Universal Data Hub), Personalization vendors, even legacy CRM and Web Analytics systems are competing to be this unified source of data that feeds all other enterprise systems. But, it’s not an even playing field and it's essential to know the strengths and weaknesses of each solution prior to committing to such a critical piece of technology infrastructure.
Join this interactive webinar to determine which technology is best suited to create and act on a single view of the customer.

‘Data Marketing maturity’ can mean a different thing for different organizations but is an essential requirement for all marketing departments in the fast changing world we’re in. Data is never going to get smaller yet many organisations are being left behind not realizing that they need to upskill before it’s too late. For SMB marketing departments utilizing email marketing this could be a step towards analytics and segmentation, for enterprise organizations this could be consolidation of data sources, across multiple brands, to create a Single Customer View. Or perhaps it’s the big plunge into Big Data, Programmatic or Machine Learning.
Whatever the steps are towards ‘data marketing maturity’ there will always be a requirement for new skills, new technology and a requirement for change and learning new processes.
In this webinar, BlueVenn Consultant Pedro Rego will talk through the top five techniques necessary for marketing maturity success, including examples of those who are using these capabilities, and the ROI of executing them successfully.

Compared with other promotional emails, welcome emails are four times more likely to be opened and five times more likely to be clicked, according to a report by Experian Marketing Services. That means welcome emails are prime real estate for educating new prospects about your business and for encouraging them down the path toward becoming a customer. The best welcome emails result from the combination of digital marketing strategy and marketing automation software that automatically sends relevant emails when new leads come in. That’s why Digital Marketer, a leading strategy and consulting group, and Infusionsoft, a leading provider of sales and marketing software for small businesses, have teamed up for this e-book on crafting effective welcome emails.
The number of marketing technologies available to businesses has soared in the last five years – from about 150 in 2011 to over 3,800 in 2016, according to ChiefMarTech.com. This rapid expansion of the MarTech space has created significant challenges for marketing, technology, and management teams alike ─ making it difficult to build cohesive, end-to-end customer experiences because of gaps between marketing technologies, the data they leverage, and how they are implemented.
Left unaddressed, these gaps spread across an organization, resulting in four key problems:
- An increase in operational lag from vendor implementations taking too long and requiring more resources to maintain, update, and optimize
- Inefficient teams caused by a lack of data continuity and centralization
- Poor customer experiences from underlying data fragmentation
- Customer trust and data-privacy risks
Join Ted Sfikas, Director of Solution Consultants at Tealium, for this free webinar to discuss ways your business can address the cost, time, and risk associated with the four key problems, as well as how to enable cross-organizational access and activation for your most powerful data with a Universal Data Hub.
Each customer undertakes a unique journey, incorporating multiple channels and exhibiting different behaviors. Although this means huge potential for marketers to better engage with customers, actually tracking this behavior, and making use of the data, can seem like an insurmountable challenge for marketers.

You better get good at conversational video marketing, fast—or you're going to be obsolete.
Videos and photos get the most retweets. Last year, Facebook's video viewership doubled from 4 billion views per day to 8 billion views per day in seven months. Google owns YouTube, and coincidentally, rich media is a favorite of the search engine's algorithms.
Conversational videos drive traffic, boost engagement, and serve up information better than any other medium. They promote trust in your brand and your products. They're eminently shareable, potentially viral, and taking over the internet: 74 percent of all Internet traffic in 2017 will be video.
Step up and stand out in every step of the sales funnel with conversational video marketing when you join our latest interactive VB Live event.

A push notification is a tricky kind of social engagement: it can be a tap on the shoulder, a punch in the face, or water torture.
