Online advertising has grown into a $37 billion industry from nothing in the last twenty years. Encompassing banner ads, rich media ads, video advertising, social network advertising and retargeting, online advertising is a key component of digital media marketing. Learn how to optimize your digital strategy from online marketing experts.
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

Hi there [first_name],
We know that using personalization in marketing works, and not just in isolated incidents either. In looking at case studies across industries and channels, from email to web to location-based marketing, it produces amazing results.
But consumers are worried about the use of their personal data: 96% of American consumers are concerned about data privacy, and 80% of consumers have changed their privacy settings. Today's customers have legitimate worries over the type of data marketers want to use in messaging, and advertising.
In this webinar we'll deliver the latest research into how consumers feel about personalization. We'll tell you what consumers want, what they hate, and best practices on how to introduce personalization without being "creepy."
After this webinar, you'll:
* Know what types of personalization are acceptable, and which to avoid
* Learn the correct process for on-boarding personalization, and how to manage when consumers opt-out
* Understand what the future of personalization looks like, for both B2C and B2B organizations
* Get an overview of the rules and regulations at play
* Find out the marketing technologies that will save all marketers from crossing the "uncanny valley" into "Creepyville"
If you're a CMO, SVP/VP of Marketing, Marketing Director, or Marketing Manager, you won't want to miss this. Sign up now...
This webinar will be based on Stewart Rogers’ VB Insight report, which released on July 22, 2015.

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

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.

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

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.

More than half of all programmatic display dollars are expected to go to mobile this year.

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:

• 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.

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.

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!

For your message to resonate, you need to be thinking not just at a regional level, but at a global one as well. Localization efforts are a tough art. Your content has to be spot on and it has to get out the door quickly. But how can you balance speed, quality, and the right message for the right individual? We can help.
Localization isn't limited to simple translation -- you can't set it and forget it. Companies shouldn't assume, for instance, that a campaign created for Spain will be equally as effective to all Spanish-speaking consumers in the U.S. or Mexico. It's not just language, but cultural differences. Consider the message you might send to someone in Berkeley, California, versus one you might send to someone in Phoenix, Arizona or New York City. And once your unique branding content has been sent out to different geographies, your localization efforts aren't over just yet. True experts understand that the campaign as a whole is not a sum of its parts -- a campaign's success can be in the granular regions, creating a truly unique customer experience with that added local flavor to resonate within the audience.
In order to conquer the tougher elements of localization, we'll walk you through the most common mistakes that companies make and help you improve your campaign's quality, accuracy and relevance to reach the right consumer. From simple documents and emails, to the more advanced website and app localization, we'll give tips on not only improving the localization process but help you deliver better metrics to senior leadership that tell the true story of your brand's reach and globalization.
In this webinar, you'll learn how to:
- Re-think campaign creation at the regional level -- and the global one
- Effectively use in-market experts to drive better impact
- Make your branding as world-ready as possible.
- Use metrics to show the truest picture of your campaign's effectiveness
- Enhance the customer experience through added local flavor
