Last month, advertising guidelines concerning testimonials and endorsements that were issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) went into effect. They impact every industry segment. Simply put, these new regulations reflect a key pro-consumer shift that can not only impact the basis for governmental investigations but influence consumer litigation and advertising challenges. They establish liability for all stakeholders in the marketing process - - whether companies/brands, ad agencies, consumer endorsers, or celebrity spokespersons - - concerning “sponsored” communications that constitute “advertising messages.”

If you listen to people talk, it seems pretty obvious that everybody hates email.
But do they really?
Turns out that recent statistics do not support this myth. People hate bad email. But they like (and respond to) email that is timely, relevant and valuable.
According to eConsultancy’s Email Marketing Industry Census 2015, 74% of companies surveyed consider email one of the best channels to deliver ROI.
But shouldn’t modern marketers focus on social media and mobile marketing?
According to McKinsey it’s a mistake to ignore email:
“Email remains a significantly more effective way to acquire customers than social media—nearly 40 times that of Facebook and Twitter combined".
So how do you get most out of your email marketing efforts?
This webinar brings together a panel of Silicon Valley marketing veterans who will share strategies and best practices to make you a better email marketer in B2B and B2C.
Learn how you can improve your own email marketing programs by sending the smallest number of emails, with the greatest impact.
At the end of the webinar, you will understand how to:
• Send emails that your customers anticipate and value
• Achieve high email open rates and conversions
• Successfully integrate email and social media
• Build long-term customer relationships
• Have your customers seek your guidance on their journey through the buyer cycle
Every second, 800 apps are downloaded from the App Store, but 20% of those apps will only be used once. Listen in as we discuss the two most powerful ways you can keep users engaged with your app: push and in-app messaging.

Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?
No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.
A VentureBeat webinar helps marketers wade through the tech-speak and discover how to:
• Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics
• Winnow down your options to a handful of appropriate platforms
• Come up with ways to measure success
• Generate meaningful business insight from data
• Plan for the future by the ability to add new data sources and tools

It's 2016, and it's clear that content is no longer only in the marketer's domain — it fulfills the entire buyer journey from engagement and lead generation all the way through to sales and customer retention.
As such, the marketing technology landscape has exploded with content marketing software options. While this explosion of solutions is exciting, it can also be confusing and difficult to navigate. Should you seek a platform or point solutions? How do you avoid "software silos"? What kind of software do you actually need to crush your B2B marketing goals?
In this webinar, Uberflip co-founder and CEO Yoav Schwartz discusses an authentic framework through which content marketing software should be evaluated to build a powerful marketing technology stack.

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.

The inbound marketing methodology for lead generation and lead nurturing is increasingly popular year over year in B2B industries. Yet many business don’t fully understand what it takes to transition to a content driven and automated form of marketing via the internet.
Everyone wants to experience success as quickly as possible, but not every company is in a position to execute inbound marketing for many reasons. It’s a big change for businesses who are use to event based campaigning, advertising, or cold calling.
The goal of this presentation is to help you assess - for those who want to transition to inbound marketing - how ready you are to start campaigning. Or perhaps you’ve invested in a marketing automation platform but not getting the traction you’d like to see. In either case, after this presentation you’ll have a precise understanding of what to tackle operationally to make your company's inbound machine roar to life.
Here are just a few of the issues we’ll address:
•How ready is your marketing leader and inbound advocate?
•How ready is your email list?
•What should your first marketing goals be?
•What services will you outsource?
•Appropriate document management for security and version control
•Is the needed social media protocol in place?
•Roles of team members
The presenter, Marguerite Inscoe had a 12 year career in workplace learning and performance before transitioning to inbound marketing 5 years ago. She is a blogger, social media marketer, email marketer, and certified with Hubspot as a partner. This fits around her other full time job as mom, wife, choir member, and a martial arts practitioner.
Marguerite’s full service agency, ReLaunchU, specializes in internet marketing for B2B companies - particularly those in the consulting and training industries.
Businesses spend a huge amount of time and money profiling their customers to predict behaviour based on historic information, such as where they live and what they’ve previously purchased. The problem with this approach is that it assumes we fit certain stereotypes. It also only allows you to profile those customers who have provided you with their personal details, excluding the masses who may walk into your shop or visit you online and never leave their details. At Triggar, we believe that the best predictors of behaviour are what we’re doing or how we’re feeling from moment to moment.
Discover how we use predictive analytics to help us analyse, predict and improve online and offline experience, turning more prospects into customers and more customers into brand advocates.
