As the measurability of marketing campaigns has gone up, marketers have become obsessed with things like CPL and MQL. They’ve focused more of their budgets on demand generation volume rather than on understanding the drivers of better outcomes. Despite their best efforts, for many companies, SQL/SAL conversions remain just half of where they should be for their efforts. There’s clearly a better way.
In this webinar, we’ll address how better synchronizing content development and delivery, to truly integrate your branding and demand generation, can lead up to a 2x increase in ROI. Here’s what we’ll cover:
• A preview of TechTarget’s research on the effect of integrated branding on real consideration rates and demand gen conversion – based on the analysis of 110,000 IT solution deals
• How Bedrock Data uses a blend of thought leadership and demand generation content to achieve their sales goals
By 2020, five billion people will be online, with 25 billion devices and machines using the Internet. Many devices will share data and services, and the way we engage with them will fundamentally change. In a connected world, consumer expectations of executing transactions on a phone, tablet, VR device – or even a refrigerator – will be higher than ever.
As time goes on, devices will become smarter and make more and more decisions for us. We’ll be able to create rules as users to tell our devices what we’re comfortable with them paying for automatically. The use cases for rule-based payment are endless!
As such, the onus of creating frictionless download and shopping experiences while overcoming barriers between devices lies with each business. When it comes to recurring and subscription payments, the technology underpinning these user experiences across devices is critical. Seamless, simple, and secure are the watchwords of an IoT world.
Don’t wait until 2020 to address consumer pain points and overcome technological barriers to IoT adoption. Tune in to the latest VB Live event and hone in on the fastest, best ways to prepare for the IoT world. After all, it’s already here. Attend this webinar and find out:
•How companies are already dealing with device connectivity
•How the challenges posed by IoT are being solved for today
•Global consumer attitudes around payments made by devices
•How payments will become ‘invisible’ or ‘translucent’ for users
•Payment technology that will enable devices to make decisions

Your content experience is the environment in which your content lives, but it’s also so much more than that. It’s the place where all the user action takes place. It’s where a visitor converts to a lead, and where you can measure your content’s effectiveness across the entire buyer journey.
If you want to improve your content’s performance, you can’t afford to ignore your content experience any longer. In this live webinar, you’ll learn:
- Why you need to start focusing your content marketing efforts on optimizing your content experience
- How to build a high converting content experience
- How a well-optimized content experience can help enable content to be used across your entire B2B organization

Customers use multiple devices across many online and offline channels, generating overwhelming amounts of data. Organizations and marketers don’t only have to pull all this data together and make sense of it, but use it to deliver a seamless and personalized journey across every channel.
While a CDP to create a Single Customer View can help you triumph over disparate data, the battle is only half won: these persistent, unified records need to be put to use. With multi-channel campaign management, marketers have the ability to engage and communicate with their customers at every stage of their journey.
During this webinar, Customer Data Platform Institute founder David Raab and Jim Kelly, Principal Consultant at BlueVenn, will discuss how a holistic view and a consistent customer experience creates more relevant marketing. Asking questions such as: How else do the two marketing technologies benefit each other? Can one work without the other? Plus, of course, why a CDP and multi-channel campaign Management is a Match Made in Heaven.

So how does a company do both?

We think of content as documents: articles, books, presentations, videos. However, readers focus not on the documents but on the answers that they may contain — the answers to questions such as "what is this for," "how do I," "why should I," and even "what is all the information on this particular subject." The tools of structured content let us sequence, chunk, and reuse information in a customer-friendly way. Yet, often a single chunk of information is not the whole answer — that answer lies in the meaningful connections between various pieces of content.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my guests, Joe Pairman of Mekon, and Andreas Blumauer, managing partner of the Semantic Web Company for this free webinar. Joe and Andreas will guide you on a journey that will show you how taxonomy helps us build meaningful connections so that readers can understand the big picture. They will talk about doing a better job of surfacing information for search engines—from Google to our own intranets. Ultimately, when granular chunks of content are networked with taxonomy tags as a knowledge graph, the system can answer questions that no-one has imagined yet — the myriad of messy, complex queries that arise in real-life knowledge-seeking.
• Benefits and principles of granular structured content, and how to prepare your own content for this new architecture.
• Best practices for linking structured content to standards-based taxonomies and pitfalls to avoid
• The underlying semantic architecture to build a truly mature and scalable approach to linking content and data
ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

The marketing team’s goal is to acquire new customers and grow existing customer spend. To do this, they must have customer data that is relevant, timely and trusted. Data-driven marketers don’t just manage their new marketing applications; they actively manage their data as a strategic asset. And, as with all strategic assets, that means putting in place rigorous systems of governance to define key dimensions and the metrics to control the data that defines them.
In this session, John Donlon, Senior Research Director, at SiriusDecisions discusses a seven-step process required within the marketing department for auditing, cleansing and managing data that is sustainable and delivers tangible results.
Consumers aren’t actually impressed by just a "Hi!" And as deluged by content as they are, they know they have the luxury of simply ignoring you. To catch their interest, you need to demonstrate that you know what they want, and you can deliver it.

Innovations in marketing tech, like AI, machine learning, and shopping bots, enable you to microsegment all the way down to a customer’s purchase and interest patterns to develop messaging that triggers powerful interest, creates deep engagement, and drives sales.

Display ads have become one of most common channels marketers leverage to reach the right person, at the right time, with the right message in the hopes of achieving a quick conversion. When organizations deploy multiple martech solutions solutions and marketing channels, like display ads, they are able to collect massive amounts of behavioral data at each of these touchpoints. While many brands are able to collect this 1st party data from each marketing touchpoint - most aren’t able to truly take advantage of the opportunity this data holds with their display ad strategy.
Brands are experiencing powerful results and driving more display ad conversions by connecting disparate 1st party data sources. Wondering how? Join this webinar to learn:
- The foundational concepts and terminology you need to know around the display ecosystem
- How Data Management Platforms (DMPs), Demand Side Platforms (DSPs), Email Service Providers (ESPs) and other martech solutions fit into the display ad sphere and how to use this combination to your advantage

For the third and final webinar of this series, the CMO Council and Teradata are concluding the conversation around shaping customer experiences by focusing on the importance of coordinated cross-channel messaging through a centralized hub for all customer interactions—one that listens to all interactions, automatically tells marketing channels when and about what to say based on all the latest data and machine-learning analytics, and applies contact governance so that your marketing is smart and optimized, not fragmented by channel.

Ad fraud isn’t becoming more prevalent -- the fraudsters are just getting slicker. From bot nets to device ID spoofing, the tricks are getting more sophisticated, and raking in more and more cash for the swindlers.
Staying ahead of the fraudster’s learning curve is the key — and collaboration is the crucial element. While vendors and advertisers are directly impacted by fraud, tracking partners provide the technology to help fight fraud – all three players have to work together to circle the wagons.
Making a game plan can be complex, when there are no clear benchmarks for defining or measuring fraud, as each player defines it differently and different benchmarks are needed for each app type, geo, traffic source, and so on.
Join this VB Live event to learn how to tackle that complexity, how to define benchmarks, detect and manage fraud, and work with your partners to circle the wagons against the fraudsters.

It also made it ready for flexible delivery to different apps and across many different platforms and media. But somehow these outcomes never fully transferred over to content. How can we bring this same revolution to content and win the same kind of enormous improvements that would prepare us for the future?
Structured content management enables organizations to store, organize and build their content so that pieces are easily discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It provides the perfect solution for constructing large, complex documents, but also for delivering modular content to chatbots, portal sites, and mobile apps. But, more importantly, it is also key to future-proofing your content for emerging technological trends.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, Founder and CSO of DitaExchange, for this free one-hour webinar. Attendees will learn what structured content management is and how it works. They will understand what benefits structured content can have for writers, project managers, business owners, IT departments and content consumers. They will also learn how to prepare their content to be fed into new technologies with practical examples from the field.

Ten years ago, The Content Wrangler published details about a survey that found most documentation managers don’t use metrics as a performance measure. Has that changed? Have documentation managers stuck to their old, metric-less ways, or have they all become “quants” in 10 years’ time?
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Barry Saiff, CEO of Saiff Solutions. Barry is the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Technical Communications Leaders, and a 30-year veteran documentation leader. He will lead a discussion about the ins and outs of calculating costs and return on investment for documentation projects.
Attendees will learn from the results of a real-world case study of a technical documentation project that required technical writing, technical illustrations, and a couple of key metrics: cost per page and pages per date. You’ll learn how difficult it was for the team to track, calculate, and report these seemingly simple numbers and how they overcame these challenges. You’ll discover the connection between measurement and process design and learn valuable lessons that should help you avoid getting lost in the weeds of data- and cost-tracking.
