    Modern marketing has become customer-centric. Rather than one-way, generic message broadcasting, marketing today is about delivering a relevant, personalized experience… but how do you deliver relevance if you don’t know who you’re talking to?

    Knowing who each customer is and what she cares about is a major challenge with two parts:

    * Data collection - picking up the digital breadcrumbs from each customer interaction
    * Data unification - tying together customer details from multiple interactions and databases

    This webinar will explain:
    * Why customer identity is more critical than ever
    * The challenges of collecting and unifying customer data
    * Key tools for capturing customer data
    * Best options for enriching existing customer profiles
    * Methods and technologies to unify customer data

    And includes data from:
    * A survey of 506 marketers about customer identity and personalization
    * 27 vendor and brand interviews

  • In 2014 RNDC, the second largest wholesaler of alcoholic beverages in the US, built a suite of Sales Force Automation tools that would transform the way their field sales force went to market.

    RNDC's challenges were:
    Provide best-in-class information technology that outpaces their competitors and creates a significant point of difference
    Keep pace with emerging technologies
    Build mobile solutions focused on Sales Force Automation
    Standardize wherever possible and drive utilization

    In this presentation, Bill Smith, Director of Sales Quality Assurance, will discuss how sales leadership and BI developers, working with MicroStrategy Mobile technology, developed best-in-class mobile applications, delivering real-time analytics to the field sales teams at RNDC.
  • The rise of mobile offers a once-in-a-generation chance for deeper connections with consumers because mobile is inherently intimate and always-on. Being able to reach customers at any time, on any device, allows brands to boost engagement, increase retention, and grow revenue. But with so many avenues of communication, including email, push notifications, and social, businesses run the risk of spamming users rather than communicating with each individual person in a valuable way. So, how can brands intelligently leverage the bevy of marketing channels to better understand and engage customers?

    Winning brands must embrace an omnichannel engagement strategy that’s built specifically for their channel-agnostic customer base. This webinar outlines the key issues in delivering a seamless omnichannel experience and provides actionable tactics that deliver proven ROI.

    You’ll learn:

    * Why today’s marketing automation solutions fall short of customer expectations
    * How winning omnichannel marketing strategies balance push notifications, in-app messages, email, and social communications
    * Why understanding users on a person level, and not device level, is critical in mobile
    * Why “Marketing” is evolving to “Communicating” and how to prepare for that transition

    Abstract:

    Advertising used to be simple. As the number of potential advertisers and publishers grew, however, it was nearly impossible to track down and maintain a handle on all direct media buying processes. That is when ad networks were born – to help marketers scale in a fragmented world. With all this complexity, advertisers just can't keep up. There's a $25 billion -- that's with a B -- mobile advertising gap.

    So what are you going to do about it? And how do you start pulling in the mad revenue that's waiting to be taken?

    We'll share the findings of our most recent VB Insight report on mobile advertising, chock full of advice to help you understand the mobile advertising ecosystem. We've got the best practices for mobile advertising and the five biggest mistakes you can make as a marketer in this space. And best of all, we'll walk through the best ad networks for various use cases.

    * Get strategies from major players in the mobile ad networks to increase engagement
    * Learn the many ways fraud can wreak havoc on your mobile ad strategy
    * Hear the best practices in mobile advertising
    * Drive huge engagement with one mobile concept you're probably not doing today

  • 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

    Abstract:

    Personalization is critical to the success of your business model. Many of the most innovative and beloved companies in recent history -- think Facebook, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and Hulu, just to name a few -- have transformed customer expectations and disrupted their individual industries. Now customers expect it. It increases clicks, open rates and conversions -- usually by pretty substantial margins. But -- how do you DO it?

    The process is different at every step of the customer journey and there's a lot that goes into personalization. What's more, there's a lot more ways to reach your customers than ever. Personalizing display ads is very different from personalizing emails or a mobile app experience. The data, content, and delivery mechanisms necessary to personalize those messages changes -- and so should your strategy.

    We're taking a holistic look at the art of personalization -- from customer expectations to ROI. We'll show you a new way of looking at identity -- from both the customer's behavior to predicting their behaviors.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how to collect data that helps visualize the customer's journey
    * Get tips on one of the biggest challenges to increasing the ROI of marketing automation
    * Access the theory of identity enrichment
    * Gain insight into best practices for personalization in different channels

    Over 84% of marketers think email contact is important for building brand loyalty -- the thing about email? It works. It works well. It might even work so well that marketers are satisfied with the ROI and don't even know to mine the tools for more gold.

    In this webinar, VB Insight analyst Jon Cifuentes will dig deep into email marketing, providing an overview for proven ROI, desired volume and velocity of email.

    With this webinar, you'll:

    Gain a greater understanding of email marketing ROI, volume and ideal velocity

    We are on the verge of a new era of smart connected things, where devices and machines are much more intuitive, simplifying and enriching our daily lives.

  • Personalisation in advertising has become a hot topic for UK brands and marketers. Retargeting uses the power of personalisation to turn shopping basket abandoners into customers, but what else can it do?

    In this Marketing Week webinar join Shane Murphy, AdRoll’s director of EMEA marketing, as he walks through the insights from our survey of 250 European marketers and AdRoll retargeting campaign data from nearly 4,000 advertisers:

    • Real world use cases for retargeting in driving brand awareness, customer retention, and driving sales

    • Industry insight on social, mobile, and attribution

    • Retargeting and attribution best practices
  • Did you know that 73% of mobile customers say they're fed up with being shown irrelevant content?

    In this webinar Duncan Clark, Global Head of Research at Netbiscuits, will explain why you need to think differently about some familiar digital marketing metrics and how to use analytics to prove ROI on your content. Using concrete examples and case studies, we'll give you the tools you need to succeed with multiscreen content marketing. Including amongst others:

    * Content analysis blueprint: How to easily get started on improving your multiscreen content experience without getting swamped in data.

    * Case Study: Is my content mix increasing customer engagement across devices? And how much is my content costing me for every minute a user spends on my site?

    * Case Study: How to ensure you show the most relevant content to customers across different channels and devices.

    You'll come away with a clear plan of key steps to optimize your content marketing campaigns as well as tried-and-tested methodologies for proving the ROI on your content.
  • If you’ve been pouring both time and money into creating beautiful content marketing, then you’ll probably want to know how effective your assets actually are, right? We’ve compiled some practical examples for improving web traffic and customer engagement with content marketing campaigns across any screen.
  • In this hands-on tutorial, Netbiscuits uncovers some powerful content marketing insights that marketers can quickly and easily act upon to help them understand where they should be focusing their time and resources.
  • Whether currently engaging in online commerce or contemplating such a move in the future, successful CMOs are realizing that their customers want a personalized, frictionless purchasing experience. Consumers seek agile interactions, painless fulfillment, and a memorable experience. CMOs are increasingly embracing a new priority: Identifying new and recurring revenue opportunities and optimizing the consumer experience to maximize customer lifetime value. The good news is that the global digital consumer is ready to spend. According to analyst firm Ovum, global consumer spend on digital content will increase from $76 billion in 2013 to $145 billion in 2018, doubling in a short five-year span.

    Working in lockstep with CFOs, successful CMOs are implementing new strategies to price products and services, bill customers, offer seamless payment facilities, create new opportunities to retain customers, and grow recurring revenue streams – all while defining new business metrics to measure success in terms of customer lifetime value. They team with product management to identify new opportunities and even new products that meet their customers’ growing expectations for innovation, engagement and relevance.

    To address these new mandates for digital marketing, monetization, and frictionless commerce and experience, the CMO Council will be hosting an online webcast (06/18, 10am PST/1pm EST/5pm GMT) to discuss and debate the realities of transforming organizations, strategies and revenue models and develop winning strategies to successfully navigate the online revenue maze.

  • We caught up with Paul Berney, co-founder of mCordis, on how content marketers should think about the challenges of the multi screen world.
  • Social media is about people. The holy grail of marketing is currently personalization.

    And while new amazing social media intelligence tools are making it easier than ever before to listen, analyze data, gain insights and make informed decisions, there is a real danger to over-automate.

    More and more social media strategies are employing auto-response, auto-Retweet, auto-content generation, auto-whateverpossible tools. This goes against the grain of social media and is a recipe for getting out of touch with your constituents.

    As @JoshDSullivan of Booz Allen put it, “No machine can be a miracle cure. Humans have to find patterns, ask questions, make the connections.”

    • How can you do that?
    • How can you ensure that your social media team is not getting overwhelmed and side-tracked by too much data and technological stimuli?
    • How can you enable them to respond vs. react to stay at the top of their game?
  • We’ve entered an unprecedented age in B2B marketing.

    Today’s buyers are savvier, more connected, and more informed than ever before — and they’re well aware of the power they possess. When companies fail to deliver the smooth and personalized buyer experience that consumers have come to expect, favorable alternatives are little more than a Google search away; it’s no secret and it’s a challenge that all B2B organizations face.

    But here’s the bottom line that’s too-often forgotten: delivering a seamless buyer’s experience starts with seamless alignment internally. Marketing and sales must work together throughout the decision-making journey, sharing insights and updates and allowing each team to play to their greatest strengths.

    Enter, Pardot plus Salesforce Engage. Join us on June 11th for this 30-minute webinar, as we explore the capabilities of these two powerful tools and discuss how they can streamline workflows to enable joint sales and marketing success. Attendees will learn how to:

    - provide real-time visibility into a prospect’s digital engagements
    - deliver content to prospects how and when they want it
    - translate data into actionable insights for both sales and marketing

    Consumers are constantly on the move and always eager to engage with any brand that will make their lives better. Smart marketers recognize the need to combine mobile into the overall brand experience but, why are so many businesses failing to keep up?

    Behavior is changing quickly. Consumers may start an interaction on one device on the go, transition to a tablet at home or in the office, and subsequently interact in person. These consumers are expecting a seamless experience that today is fragmented. Successful marketers realize that the experience must be integrated to live up to the brand across all touch points but as marketing channels continue to proliferate, it is extremely challenging to get the full picture of what that individual customer experience looks like.

    After this webinar you'll have insights to

    •Gain new techniques to enrich the customer experience by understanding and acting on behaviors, preferences and sentiment;

    •Deliver amazing and integrated mobile experiences at every single touchpoint of your brand;

    •Engage your customers in the moment with contextually relevant interactions; and

    •Move beyond marketing campaigns to manage the overall experience along the customer journey.

    Mobile is driving new engagement models for your clients. Are you ready? Register today!
  • If you ask digital marketers what content is proving best for ROI, you’ll probably find a fairly even split of answers between video, long form and short form articles. Now, the scary bit. If you ask them what that answer is based on, more often than not you’ll find it’s the result of opinion or gut feeling. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with this. Most of us have a good idea of what our audience broadly is looking for.

    However, it makes the next set of questions really difficult to answer:
    - Do I need to be creating more videos, or more long form articles?
    - Are infographics a waste of time?
    - Do I have the right mix of content for my audience or could I be serving them even better?

    Added to this, there are many well-intentioned bloggers eager to share their best practice ideas, which can lead to truths, half-truths and sometimes pure myth. But how can we separate fact from fiction?

    In this webinar, we’ll explore how analytics can be used to debunk myths and really inform marketing intelligence. We’ll do this by analysing real live data against some of the common hypotheses, such as:

    - Long form articles are more engaging than short form
    - Videos are the most efficient form of content
    - Infographics are expensive and least effective for driving content marketing ROI

    In this webinar, we’ll explore how to link content to ROI and how to optimise ROI in a world where content has to reach a cross-device audience. Learn some top tips for how to plan a really rewarding content marketing strategy.
  • Chief marketing officers are being challenged to fortify their positions, expand authority and assert ownership of critical leadership roles in their organizations. They are surrounded by title inflation in the C-suite with multiplying turfs and sub-divisions of responsibility, including “chiefs” of revenue, digital, data, customer experience, relationships, insights and innovation. In many organizations, marketing still struggles for legitimacy and credibility.

    While the appointment of a CMO sends the right signal, the credentials, character and capability of this emerging C-level executive member are of critical importance to internal acceptance and permanency. A true CMO must be the CEO-in-waiting, groomed in all aspects of the business and a true leader and value-setter for the organization. Many CMOs aspire to this role, but few make it to the corner office and even less serve on corporate boards. As the realities and requirements for a CMO are reflected in the selection and appointment process, this is likely to change.

    Today’s increasingly complex, distributed and digitally driven marketing ecosystem is putting pressure on global marketers to better integrate and manage data, best of breed solutions, creative resources, brand assets and go-to-market functions. While digital marketing complexity is enormous—providing most CMOs with major transformation challenges—many are thriving on new customer insights and campaign measurement tools that make a strong case for marketing value, spend and sales pipeline contributions. They are collaborating at unprecedented levels with CFOs, CIOs and COOs, as well as establishing themselves as market experts, customer experience architects, and well-informed global strategists.

    Further webcast details will be announced shortly.
  • There’s more marketing data available than ever, and that’s exactly why it’s so challenging to truly make sense of it all. While cloud-based data platforms have accelerated the availability and access of marketing data, it hasn’t made the marketer’s job any easier. It’s just the opposite. ‘Mo’ data, mo’ problems.’
    VB Insight’s new research on analytics shows that brands plan to increase their spending on the category by a whopping 73 percent over the next 3 years. For big market cap B2C companies, it’s closer to a 100 percent increase.

    The trouble is most marketing organizations are lukewarm on both how good their own insights are and how good their business partners are at making their insights actionable.

    This webinar will cover how top marketers are using marketing data to their advantage and driving huge value with data.

    Attendees will:
    * Learn the primary objectives for marketing analytics organizations today
    * Get an overview of the massively complex marketing data ecosystem. We counted 800+ vendors in use across 10 key marketing use cases
    * Understand and be able to outline the top vendors available for every use case, who's meeting expectations and who's lagging
    * Gain guidance for the types of advanced analysis your marketing organization needs to be investing in now to compete for customer relevance

They are collaborating at unprecedented levels with CFOs, CIOs and COOs, as well as establishing themselves as market experts, customer experience architects, and well-informed global strategists.

  • Chief marketing officers are being challenged to fortify their positions, expand authority and assert ownership of critical leadership roles in their organizations. They are surrounded by title inflation in the C-suite with multiplying turfs and sub-divisions of responsibility, including “chiefs” of revenue, digital, data, customer experience, relationships, insights and innovation. In many organizations, marketing still struggles for legitimacy and credibility.

    While the appointment of a CMO sends the right signal, the credentials, character and capability of this emerging C-level executive member are of critical importance to internal acceptance and permanency. A true CMO must be the CEO-in-waiting, groomed in all aspects of the business and a true leader and value-setter for the organization. Many CMOs aspire to this role, but few make it to the corner office and even less serve on corporate boards. As the realities and requirements for a CMO are reflected in the selection and appointment process, this is likely to change.
