  • Your Mobile Customer is Ready to Engage. Are you? Recorded: Feb 27 2014 61 mins
    It’s no secret that companies today need a mobile strategy in order to communicate with their ever increasingly mobile audience. But putting together an effective and cost-efficient mobile engagement strategy is no easy task.

    Your mobile strategy must tie-in to your existing communication practices to enable true cross-channel interactions, and so that your company is speaking with one voice.
    Your newer front-end mobile applications technologies should work seamlessly with your more established back-end operational or transactional systems.
    Your mobile strategy must constantly be reassessed. Mobile technology is experiencing an incredible pace of change. What might have been acceptable a year or even just six months ago, might no longer be enough.

    Are you prepared? Join Message Systems and guest speaker Julie Ask, Forrester Research, Inc., and learn:

    How mobile is changing the engagement model with customers.
    Why, where and when mobile is effective, and what role messaging can play

  • The Time Is Now For Multichannel Recorded: Feb 26 2014 38 mins
    Why ESPs Need to Move Beyond Email – Now!

    Customers today control when and how a brand’s messages are viewed. So, multichannel marketing is essential for interacting with customers when they want and how they want. But it’s not easy!

    39% of marketers agree with the statement: "We lose business because we are not able to integrate customer interactions across all channels." And 49% of marketers said they found it hard to consolidate customer feedback from multiple channels.

    Marketers today are looking for providers who can help them with multichannel campaigns – no longer just for email programs alone. Multichannel marketing allows them to take advantage of all the ways they can engage with their customers. Done poorly, a multichannel campaign can alienate customers by bombarding them with emails, text messages, and social network notifications. Done well, a multichannel campaign can smoothly maintain customer engagement over multiple devices and channels.

    Attend this webinar to learn how you can expand your service offering through a unified digital messaging platform and offer marketers:

    Access to multiple digital channels where their customers would be most receptive to receiving messages.
    Cadence management – so they are not bombarding their customers with messages sent out from siloed systems
    Messaging data that indicate how each channel differs from the others, which content resonates best and where your customers are reading and reacting
    Technology that allows marketing teams to focus on the message, timing and channel, while shielding them from the complexities of dealing with different networks, message types, formats, protocols, and devices

  • How human interaction boosts sales and loyalty Recorded: Feb 19 2014 49 mins
    The emphasis on digital marketing has affected investment in other channels. So have we lost sight of the benefits that ‘live’ human interaction can bring to B2B sales.

    The whirlwind advance of digital marketing has resulted in a stampede as marketing managers race to ‘land grab’ their part of the digital space.
