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:

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. Vindicia, a subscription billing and recurring revenue leader that is driving the pace of the digital economy, will share expert perspectives, along with key questions that marketers must consider when building new digital revenue models.

Join Marin Software and iProspect for this 1 hour webinar and Q&A on integrating your Search and Social strategies in order to better manage, measure, and optimize your campaigns for improved ROI and maximum customer lifetime value.
We'll share 15 proven tactics, along with case studies exhibiting how you can most effectively implement these proven ideas into your own Search and Social advertising programs.

In a world where the customer is constantly connected to social networks, understanding that space and the tools that help drive support, engagement, leads, demand, brand awareness, and more is imperative.
Choosing the right SMM tools and tactics, therefore, is a ‘must do,’ not a ‘nice to have’ or something that can be ignored in favor of other marketing channels.

Consumers today have access to more information than ever before when making a purchase decision. Buyers are looking for informative and trusted thought leadership content as they research their purchases, meaning that your brand's PR strategy needs to be working in tandem with marketing campaigns. As buyer behavior continues to change, marketers are re-examining their campaign and product launch strategy to incorporate PR storytelling tactics.
Join us as we discuss how to tell a unique story through a cohesive content plan to build audience trust and achieve campaign success.
During this webinar we will discuss:
• How to influence behavior through authentic and transparent content
• The evolution of earned media, and how to harness it
• The role of distribution as the missing link to any content plan
The desire to have an accurate and complete view of an individual customer is not new for marketers. Ever since marketers were first able to access data about a customer, there has been the desire to understand what makes a customer buy. In a recent CMO Council study, only 20 percent of marketers said they had a comprehensive view of customer touchpoints and engagements, and only 7 percent felt they had a single version of customer truth.
So why is it—when marketing admits that the ability to deliver data-led, personalized, customer-centric experiences across channels, in-real-time and at scale is critical to their business—that we are still struggling to obtain this 360-degree view of our customers? According to 30 percent of marketers, it is because the data that could create this unified view is trapped in silos across the organization.
While the industry talks about CMOs needing to transform into everything from customer officers and marketing technology officers to revenue officers and beyond, one functional requirement stands at the center of marketing’s ability to truly accelerate in this customer-focused, digital age: silo busting. As the chief silo buster, marketing leadership finds itself needing to work with cross-functional teams, in partnership with IT, to aggregate and manage customer data to create a single vision of the customer that can not only integrate from across the organization, but also be shared with all parts of the company.
The CMO Council, in partnership with Trillium, will host an interactive, one-hour webcast to discuss the key challenges and concerns marketers are facing when it comes to silo busting. Through conversations with brand experts, we will explore how marketing can accelerate their strategies through more effective and efficient engagements, campaigns and operations while also learning more about their customers and building customer loyalty.
As mobile overtakes desktop usage, and statistics show 70% of mobile searches lead to online action within an hour, having an impactful mobile presence for your brand is imperative.
But how do you build a mobile experience with impact? Join Senior Art Director Guy Merrill as he outlines the science behind what makes an image effective on mobile and to hear tips on how to use visual content to pack the most punch for your brand’s mobile experience.
Press releases have the potential to yield enormous benefits for an organization, including building online visibility and driving long-term brand exposure in addition to securing media coverage. But in order to obtain these results, the news release your organization publishes must be engaging, conducive, and inspire social sharing.
Learn how to create press releases that can compete with the best of the web's content for audience attention. This webinar will dive deep into press release tactics, including:
- Writing headlines that do more than just grabbing attention - they inspire action
- How to construct your news release copy to channel the interest of your readers
- Strategies for optimizing content for maximum search engine benefit for your brand
As PR and marketing communications are often competing for budget with demand generation and marketing technology, it is important to better understand the impact of PR and branding on demand and lead generation. The ability to engage new prospects and existing customers with your brand at a high level builds awareness, generates qualified leads, influences buying decisions and ultimately drive revenue.
By re-thinking the role and impact of public relations, PR and marketing professionals can more proactively help to drive demand by creating and distributing quality content to create engagement and build the sales pipeline.

Real-time marketing meets real-time research: Understanding Consumers' Digital Media Addiction
The goal for marketers is to present the right advertising message to the right person at the right time - no matter whether a person is surfing social media, watching television, checking their mobile phone or walking into a store. This becomes more and more difficult as media consumption is ever-changing. Furthermore, while we need to keep different communication methods in mind and optimise our messaging for the medium, we should also approach consumers holistically, understanding that they are who they are on mobile devices, in their cars listening to the radio, or while watching television.
In addition to dissecting the typical consumer and their media consumption, we’ll discuss how this new world order requires complete cohesion between brands, their advertising and media agencies - all the while supported by smart, real-time market research. This presentation will focus on the consumers' role in that ecosystem and their ability to recognise and internalise the messages they are sent.

Most people spend more time every day on Facebook than exercising. With 204 million monthly users on Facebook in the U.S. and Canada alone, more and more small businesses are jumping on the Facebook bandwagon. Chances are, you’ve got a lot of questions on where to begin and how to deliver the most ROI for your business.
Which types of content and ad formats on Facebook are “clicking” with shoppers? How does Facebook lay the foundation for trust and credibility with new visitors? Is there value in organic reach on Facebook? How can I target an ad to reach my loyal, repeat customers? What types of content and offers will increase the likelihood of Facebook users walking into my local store and making a purchase? How do I know if my advertising spend on Facebook is being used wisely?
Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, March 11th to learn the answers to all of these questions with our trusted panel of industry experts.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
•How consumers are using Facebook as a resource for information about small businesses
•How the recent updates to Facebook’s platform can be leveraged to stretch paid efforts as well as organic
•Types of Facebook ad units that resonate best with small business shoppers and increase the likelihood of offline sales
•How to combine locally targeted Facebook offers and ads with organic content to drive maximum ROI
•Maximize your investment by learning how to test-and-optimize your paid approach on Facebook
Just because you have limited resources and budget doesn’t mean your results have to be limited too. Walk away from this webinar with a better understanding of which Facebook marketing approach is right for your business.

Growing installs is the number one mission for any mobile app developer, and any user acquisition strategy generally consists of a mix of organic installs and paid campaigns. But many see these as separate and distinct. Not true. To get the most out of each — especially for smaller developers — it’s critical to understand how paid installs impact organic installs, and vice versa.
In this webinar, Ian Sefferman of TUNE will share the eye-opening results of a study investigating the correlation between paid campaigns and organic installs (yes, it’s positive), and how this varies depending on the app category and operating system. Christian Calderon of DOTS will dive into the strategies and tactics that increase both paid and organic installs, and how they work together.
What you’ll learn:
For every paid install, how many organic installs an app can expect to see
How the multiplier effect impacts app categories differently
How organic installs and engaged users affect your paid strategy and spend
Best-practice examples on what really works to maximize both organic installs and paid campaigns for highest yield

It’s inescapable. Marketing is increasingly a technical discipline. Data and algorithms allow us to scale up the reach while refining targeting and personalization. But most brands are selling products that can’t be instrumented as easily as a digital product, especially after purchase. Ashu Garg of Foundation Capital will talk with Doug Miliken, VP, Global Brand Development, Clorox, Jeremy Wacksman, VP, Marketing & Product, Zillow about the challenges facing both traditional and digital brands. How can CPG brands monitor digital attribution the way mobile-first businesses do? And should they? Can a strictly digital brand like Zillow learn a few new tricks from an old dog like Clorox?
Most mobile experiences today are subsidized by advertising. In order to make that model sustainable, developers and advertisers have to make sure the user experience integrates the branded message in a pleasant way. Hear from Kiip's CEO Brian Wong how his company serves up advertising as "rewards" triggered by "moments" in mobile apps -- like passing a level in a game -- and how this model worked so well it is now expanding to offer white label loyalty solutions to the world's top brands. He'll be joined by MC Hammer to discuss how the next generation of connected devices will enable a whole new range of triggers and moments, and how brands will embrace a more natural relationship with consumers.
News happens around the clock. Reaching audiences on mobile at the right time, with the right message is crucial. Properly navigating the fine line between engaging and frustrating can make or break a customer relationship. Peter Roybal, Head of Mobile, ABC News/Disney ABC Television will discuss how they adapt the formats of storytelling based on the story and their audience’s expectations, to create varied audience segments of satisfied returning customers.
Description: As consumers jump from phones to tablets, and laptops to smart TVs, advertisers are pressed to better understand, track and convert as they travel through the mobile ecosystem. Mollie Spilman, CRO of Criteo, and Joe Megibow, Chief Digital Officer of American Eagle, discuss the current models available to advertisers on mobile, and the technology landscape at their disposal to optimize retargeting and conversions when consumers jump from one device to the next. They’ll bring up examples of why, more than ever, businesses need a unified view of their customers, and transparency on the attribution of the purchases to specific impressions.

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.

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

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.

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.
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
