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.

We’re witnessing an exciting evolution of gender identity, and rapidly shifting away from a world of ‘either/or’. How is this blurring of gender impacting on advertising, media and popular culture as this trend moves into the mainstream?
Join Getty Images Visual Trends Director, Pam Grossman, for this in-depth exploration of the Genderblend visual trend and discover how your visual branding and campaigns can benefit from a blurring of the gender lines.
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.
Spotify is a pioneer in the on-demand music streaming revolution. Connectivity is everywhere and data plans are more affordable letting publishing platforms like Spotify leverage more signals to model their user’s behavior. Users love tailored experiences and advertisers love to know more about their audience’s habits. Always-on allows them to deliver on both. Big brands have advertised through traditional radio content for decades. Brian Benedik, VP, North America Ad Sales, Spotify & Harry McCracken, Technology Editor, FastCompany explore traditional brands realizing the huge benefits mobile platforms have to offer and they are putting their money where their mouth is.
The kind of simple advertising (offered by Google) may soon wither away, according to some analysts. In the highly competitive market of ride-sharing, Lyft has to maintain constant growth while grabbing new users’ attention in a more engaging way. The innovative pink mustache caught everybody’s eye and allowed them to standout amongst their more “traditional” competitors. But now mobile video advertising also provides them with a cool edge. Lyft’s CMO Kira Wampler and Vungle’s CEO Zain Jaffer talk with “sharing economy” analyst Jeremiah Owyang about how to deliver reach, relevance, and richness through video advertising — while acquiring new users at the right price.
Consumers are finding more ways to interact with brands than ever before, and most of it's happening on mobile. CMOs must understand their customer's mobile behavior holistically, and Jason plans to discuss how that knowledge should impact their digital choices. Some digital leaders, who are more increasingly Chief Digital Officers, are finding success by creating timely marketing in the right moments. Jason will share best practices from Google's work with CMOS, and go through ways they're combining insights with great digital tools to reach their constantly connected consumers across screens.

Where are we now, and where are our customers tomorrow?
According to the CMO Council’s 2014 State of Marketing report, marketers’ investments into online video is taking the next evolutionary leap from experimentation into full-fledged testing. In order words, investments are increasing at a pace like never before. Why? Customers are viewing online video like never before.
According to a recent report from Neilsen, online video consumption has risen from 13 minutes per day to 27 minutes. While this still pales in comparison to TV consumption, marketers have clearly seen that there is something to online video, and to be late to the game could be a disaster.
This trend brings with it a slew of obvious questions: What ROI should we expect? What is getting reallocated? Does this mean TV ads should be pulled in favor of online? What content are people really viewing and how will my brand be relevant in that context?
Join us as the CMO Council delves into a deep dive into online video, asking marketers and industry experts where the key trends, opportunities and pitfalls are when it comes to online video. What are industry leaders investing in…what content are they creating…and how is ROI really being measured?

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 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.
