  • Mobile is taking over as the pre-eminent way companies connect with customers.

    For sales. For service. For feedback. For support. For … everything.

    In just 8 years, smartphones have taken over the world. In just 3.5 years, smartphone media consumption has overtaken television. In just 5 years, we have been talking on our phones the same amount, but our data usage has skyrocketed more than 3400%. Mobile commerce has jumped 123% just in the first quarter of this year. It's happening. It's happening right now.

    We're taking a hard look at how mobile is the new normal. Your customers expect it. Business demands it. Mobile marketing automation is only used by 1.5% of businesses today -- and those businesses are making a killing because they understand the unique relationships we have grown to expect with our mobile devices.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how psychology meets technology with mobile marketing automation
    * Improve customer engagement and retention through marketing efforts
    * Get a running start on using the mobile revolution to drive massive engagement

    Speakers: John Koetsier, VP Research, VentureBeat

  • For today’s digitally demanding customer, a rich, personalized customer
    experience is quite simply the cost of doing business. It is no longer a differentiator, but the standard. It is a journey defined by the customer, who is setting a new pace in an intensely personal race that, in their mind, only involves one runner. This leaves leading marketers to question where and how the next great evolution will happen…and whether their organizations are set up to leap ahead of the curve. Are they set up to thrive, or will they become irrelevant and eventually obsolete?

    Agility becomes a key denominator in this new marketing equation. With customer knowledge dispersed across systems of records, insights, interactions and an array of new sources of data, organizations need the business agility to be able to leverage insight from these disparate sources of information. This also requires the ability for the entire customer experience to be optimized—not just the deployment of campaigns—so that opportunities can be captured faster in order to beat out rivals also looking to connect through revitalized customer experience strategies.

    We will be joined by Pitney Bowes’ Jeff Goldberg, Product Marketing Lead for Customer Information Management, who will share an expert perspective around creation of a digital marketing record for increasing conversion rates and improving marketing communications overall.

    Full list of speakers are:

    Liz Miller, SVP, Marketing - CMO Council

    Jeff Goldberg, Product Marketing Lead for Customer Information Management - Pitney Bowes

  • How to Use Content Marketing & Segmentation to Re-engage a Dormant Database Recorded: Mar 14 2012 48 mins
    John Sweeney, DemandGen & Renee Himelhoch Chemel, Senior Marketing Manager, Global Programs, ECI Telecom
    Join DemandGen for another close up study of Marketing Automation in EMEA. Renee Himelhoch Chemel is a marketing automation and lead-gen advocate with a passion for driving high quality leads to the sales organization. As part of the centralized Corporate Marketing team, she is responsible for prospect and customer engagement. With almost two decades of high-tech B2B marketing and communications experience. Renee is a true believer in face-to-face marketing for the complex sales cycle.

    A re-engagement program is a little like a first date. When you reacquaint yourself with someone, usually, your first statement wouldn't be, "Hello, I love you. What's your phone number?" That would be too forward and scare people away. Instead you want to offer the person something interesting about yourself that would engage him/her in conversation, or ask them a question to get the conversation started. By doing a little online flirting, you offer your potential customers a way to get to know your company.

    By offering your audience an incentive, content, which is part of your market positioning, you begin that first conversation. As that conversation progresses you also begin to profile your customer with advanced segmentation. A re-engagement program is the first step in getting to know your customers better. Jump in and get started, because maybe if you're lucky - you will have them at "hello".

    Join John Sweeney as he shines a light on Demand Generation best practice. Today' webcast features Michelle Levy, AVP of Marketing Programs at ECI Telecom.



    Marketers are under increasing pressure to show their contribution to the bottom line. They have evolved from a demand generation machine that was responsible for generating, nurturing and handing leads over to sales to marketers that are focused on bringing measurable value to their company’s bottom line. The creation of the revenue marketer is the holistic approach to closed loop marketing and this requires sales and marketing to walk down the same path, hand in hand, with the same goals.
    So how do we make that change? Michelle Levy, AVP of Marketing Programs at ECI Telecom will share the formula which led to her team’s successful alignment with a global sales team and ultimately led to the repositioning of corporate marketing as a valuable contributor to the company’s bottom line. She will share their step by step plan on how they leveraged cutting edge technologies together with dedicated support to show to sales the true value of alignment, and the measurable results of this process and the effect it has had on the sales pipeline, active opportunities and closed business where marketing’s influence has made its mark within the sales organization.
