To get the most out of your entire marketing funnel, not just your app store presence, you need to step up your ASO game with these key takeaways from our latest in-depth, Godzilla-sized ASO report.

  • Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base
    Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base Marissa Aydlett, VP Marketing, Appboy Recorded: Jul 13 2017 60 mins
    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. In other words, it can be tremendously successful at driving commerce and engagement, or it could piss your customer off so badly they'll go rip you a new one on Twitter. And we've seen how well that works out for brands.

    At the very least, every misstep reduces open rates, strikes a blow against retention and destroys engagement. You want to know how to not be the boor at a cocktail party, because push notifications, one of the most powerful and immediate engagement tools in your arsenal (when you do it right) can garner 2770% higher conversion rates.

    Don't be part of the 63 percent of marketers who stumble on the messaging, timing, and frequency of your notification strategy—join this interactive VB Live event.

    * Discover the one trick to never-fail push notifications everywhere, not just apps

  • Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports
    Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports Rick Styll, Product Management, SAS; AJ Rice, Alliance Manager, Esri Recorded: Jun 29 2017 56 mins
    Nearly 70 percent of business data contains some level of location information. But business analysts rarely use this data within their BI and analytics workflows.

    Location analytics is more than just putting points on a map. It’s part of a much larger picture of using location to provide context in visualizations, reports and analytics. Utilizing geographic data in descriptive and predictive analytics helps companies discover new patterns, identify location-specific opportunities, and get a complete picture before making business decisions.

    In this webinar, Esri and SAS discuss the role that location analytics can play in determining practical next steps for your organization. A product demonstration will be shown as well.

    We’ll answer:
    • How does location analytics add value to BI and analytics initiatives?
    • What are the right uses for location analytics?
    • What pitfalls should organizations consider as they implement processes and technology for analyzing geographic data?
    • Are special skill sets required to use location information?
    • How can organizations best develop a strategy for using geographic data?

  • Transforming Your Digital Advertising With the Power of First Party Data
    Transforming Your Digital Advertising With the Power of First Party Data Lakshmi Ramesh, Director of Digital Marketing at Treasure Data Recorded: Jun 15 2017 26 mins
    Data Management Platforms (DMPs) have helped marketers improve digital advertising in the last 10 years by providing easy access to 3rd party global audience segments, but smart marketers have realized that this isn’t enough.

    Modern marketers are now looking for ways to incorporate 1st party data into their entire marketing strategy but the problem is that this data is frequently siloed and challenging to access/analyze fast enough to keep up with market demands.

    The solution is a Customer Data Platform (CDP) which is a new system - recently recognized by Gartner - that works in harmony with existing marketing technology to connect internal 1st party data, with external 2nd or 3rd party data.

    Join us for our webinar and you will learn:

    - How to leverage your most valuable asset - 1st party data - to maximize your programmatic advertising impact.
    - The common pitfalls of working only with 2nd and 3rd party data
    - Gain a deep understanding why it’s crucial to unify 1st party data for holistic customer insights as well as activation.
    - Why a Customer Data Platform is essential to integrate 1st party data with your Data Management Platform.
  • The Account Journey: Stage Automation and Attribution
    The Account Journey: Stage Automation and Attribution Grant Grigorian, Co-Founder and CEO of Path to Scale Recorded: Jun 15 2017 36 mins
    In this webinar we'll explore how to design and begin to measure the Account Journey by mapping out the end-to-end marketing and sales processes.

    Specifically, we'll introduce the idea of an "Account Stage" and map out a few variations of an Account Lifecycle Model - ie how do we take a prospect from "Target Account" to "Customer"?

    Once we've established an account lifecycle model driven by the Account Stage, we'll fully automate it by using information about the contacts and sales deals in the account. The Account Stage will serve as the high-level indicator of where the account is in the sales cycle, making it easier to evaluate the health of our sales pipeline overall.

    Mapping out the Account LIfecycle will also improve marketing and sales alignment for Account Based Marketing orchestration and performance measurement.

    We'll conclude the webinar by showing examples of how Account Based Marketing Attribution can be used to analyze the performance of the account lifecycle.

    Note to Audience:
    This webinar is NOT a product demo or a pitch. Instead, our webinars offer an in-depth exploration of challenging topics that our customers and partners are working through - and that we hope to shed some light on.

    Please attend the webinar to learn more about this topic and bring your own questions/comments to make the session more interactive - and more valuable to everyone.

  • Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices
    Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices Joshua Eastman, Test Automation Architect Jul 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Behavior-Driven Development with Ruby/Cucumber automation is a practical, fail-proof, read-to-use strategy or process that improves software quality and decreases costs. 

    Ambiguity and miscommunication cause the majority of critical defects and undesirable outcomes in the software development lifecycle. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) ensures that requirements are accurate. It builds a mutual understanding of what should be developed and tested through a common vocabulary.

    This webinar introduces BDD methods that promote product quality by generating business requirements in Gherkin (Given-When-Then) format. Tool agnostic, BDD emphasizes communication between business, requirements analysts, developers, and testers to ensure quality expectations are achieved. Describing requirements in the form of system behavior eliminates scope creep and guarantees proper software functionality.
