    What do you do with your results?

    If you're ever unsure what your Key Performance Indicators are telling you to do next; if you're unsure of where the insights lie, the answer lies in a simple, irrefutable formula.

    Sure, measuring performance is vital. Measurement tells you if you took the right actions, whether you made the correct changes and if you're hitting targets. Once the great analysis battle is won, and the smoke clears, you’re left with only two, possible actions

    Optimize. Or take the opportunity!
  • How to become a personalization ninja and delight every customer How to become a personalization ninja and delight every customer Brian Monahan, former VP Marketing, Walmart.com Recorded: Jul 13 2016 60 mins
    With the perpetually connected consumer (aka “perpetuals”) comes the ever-increasing need for marketers to reach every customer on the channel they are using in a personal, 1:1 interaction. Unfortunately, according to Econsultancy, only 5% of marketers say they adequately do this. Further, legacy technologies that marketers have at their disposal aren’t built for this level of scalable cross-channel engagement. The consumer has evolved and so must the marketer.

    In this webinar, Brian Monahan, former VP of Marketing for Walmart.com, will present the solution to real-world personalization challenges, including deploying timely messaging and increasing customer engagement, and share what he learned while at Walmart.com.

    Brian will share lessons learned about deploying personalized communication across multiple customer touchpoints, from emails, to website, to mobile push notifications, to display advertising. He will share opportunities uncovered while driving rapid growth for one of the most highly trafficked ecommerce sites in the world.

    Webinar attendees will learn to:
    * Understand every customer on an individual basis in real-time
    * Build user graphs that account for the persistent and transient behaviors of consumers
    * Create rich, aesthetic user-experiences that engage
    * Deliver timely, consistent messages across multiple channels

    Ever since iPhones came equipped with the soothing tones of Siri, artificial intelligence entered the mainstream. Whether answering basic questions or finding information on local architecture, artificial intelligence (AI) simulates human intelligence such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision making and even language translation. From the insurance industry’s anti-fraud efforts to the latest automobile technology (self-driving mini-vans anyone?) AI is revolutionizing products and services throughout the business world.

    From Google to Sony to Facebook, the big players are investing in AI and smart money is on its continuing relevance to emerging business.

  • The business case for bots: Understanding the bot landscape The business case for bots: Understanding the bot landscape Paul English, Co-Founder of Kayak Recorded: Jun 21 2016 60 mins
    Whether used for ecommerce, messaging, or checking the weather, the idea of a bot (software designed to automate tasks or simulate conversation) to streamline these efforts is easy to love. As a new form of interactive communication (think the Weather Channel’s pop-up weather report on Kik), bots have great potential to increase the reach of marketing and sales into the daily lives of connected users around the globe. However, as the bot industry takes off, so do bad bots, those bots used by hackers to access data and corrupt business operations. It is estimated that bad bots constitute about 40 percent of all bot traffic.

    What do bots mean for your business? Are they a technology you should be tracking that might strengthen your bottom line? The short answer is “yes.” In this webinar, experts will discuss the bot landscape: the how, what, where, and when of bots and how they can potentially impact your business. In addition, you will learn to:

    •Recognize bad as well as good bots and their implications for your business
    •Understand the difference between chatbots and SMS
    •Take advantage of developments in bot technology
    •Identify the key players in the bot landscape

  • Don't be a creeper: Stay out of the spam folder through email personalization Don't be a creeper: Stay out of the spam folder through email personalization Stewart Rogers; Director, Marketing Technology VB Insight Recorded: Jun 16 2016 47 mins
    Nothing makes customers unsubscribe and ignore emails faster than indifferent and uninformed spamming, but email personalization isn’t always the answer. It can be creepy when overdone -- think hyper-localization or incorrect demographic data. When it comes to email marketing, finding the middle ground between effectiveness and stalking is the sweet spot. Recent data suggests that more than 50% of people unsubscribe to email because content is irrelevant, too frequent, or both.

    This webinar will help you build the right kind of personalized email marketing, without being a creeper.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Narrow down customer interests and respond with content that is actionable and useful.
    * Targeting the right data to appeal to customers' needs and desires.
    * Managing email frequency the right way.
    * Identify warning signs that you may have gotten a little too personal.

  • The Future of Social Analytics The Future of Social Analytics Leonie Roderick (Marketing Week), Luke Moore (Head of EMEA and APAC Sales for Crimson Hexagon) Recorded: Jun 9 2016 40 mins
    At Crimson Hexagon, we help the leading brands and agencies globally keep up with the fast changing world of social media. As we grow and develop our social intelligence, we aim to ensure they can tackle three big challenges the future of social will bring: image analytics, trend spotting and advanced emotion detection.

    In this Marketing Week webinar, in association with Crimson Hexagon, we will aim to take on these three challenges, providing examples of how organisations can future proof their businesses to deal with:

    Image recognition and analytics
    With more than 1.8 billion images posted to social media channels like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Whatsapp every day, how can brands better analyse campaign performance, identify influencers and understand consumer audiences?

    Trend spotting
    People have been sharing opinions and interests on social networks for more than 10 years. What can brands learn by analysing 750 billion social posts about how your target audiences are evolving and what they are talking about?

    Advanced emotion detection
    As organisations become more sophisticated in their application of social intelligence across different departments and business units, how can organisations move beyond positive and negative sentiment to distil true meaning from social conversation?

    Customer experience is a tough one -- we all have seen those businesses who think they're building a great scalable customer experience, but have customers who might not have the same opinion. And it's not enough to build a great product -- we define ourselves in the marketplace through each and every interaction we have with the customer.

    You might understand that the reason you're doing something is for a very valid business reason, but the customer may interpret that action entirely differently. And your world class customer service can sometimes start to falter as your startup organization adds more resources and more layers -- good for your growth but sometimes risking the very people who made your company successful. Ouch.

    Customer engagement doesn't take costly tools and high priced business analysts -- but it's also not always intuitive. We're going to show you some no-nonsense ways to keep customers loyal and driving growth while also building amazing customer experience that scales along with your business. Our panel of experts will share tactics and strategies that will help you kick start and refine your approach to delivering service -- and helps your company grow even faster.

    In this webinar you'll:

    * Understand what your customer wants and needs throughout the product lifecycle.
    * Learn strategies for rethinking the role of customer service within the organization
    * Create a new process for empowering employees to retain a top tier customer experience
    * Identify potential obstacles that may be causing customer attrition

  • Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Social media 30-minute series: Hard lessons for social advertisers Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 33 mins
    Let’s face it. Most consumers are less likely to click on keyword searches served up by Facebook than they are to run in place to get their 10,000 steps on FitBit. Does it pay to pay for social advertising marketshare? That is the existential dilemma faced by all social media marketers.

    Take Instagram. Once upon a time, they were the darling of social advertising and engagement, but a recent report indicates a 40% drop off in the interaction rate in 2015. According to some experts, one of Instagram’s biggest changes was an increase in advertising; namely that instagram ads were pushed out to everyone around the world. Like a warning to social advertisers everywhere, the all ads all the time approach resulted in a dramatic decrease in engagement.

    With more engagement comes more responsibility and an increasingly intelligent audience will be quick to yawn and then to resent an overly aggressive advertising effort. Join us for a discussion of what went wrong and how to do social advertising right.

    In this webinar you’ll learn to avoid similar mistakes, including how to:
    * Use not abuse user engagement
    * Target and personalize ads to maximize ROI
    * Understand the difference between social advertising and advertising
    * Identify which social channels are most effective for which advertising

  • Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Making games pay: Data secrets for monetization Dean Takahashi, Games Beat Editor, VentureBeat Recorded: May 26 2016 62 mins
    Most games need to make money. It’s a simple reality. In free-to-play games, this can be a formidable challenge when players are under no obligation to pay. Forcing players to pay is not a good plan - they’ll only leave disgruntled. The trick is to inspire player engagement, long-term retention, and multiple payments. But that’s easier said than done, right?

    We can show you how to rock a bottom line without turning off your best players, and make cash hand over fist in the process. The secret lies in data - what to measure, what to ignore, and which actions to take based on those KPIs.

    Using data has been proven to increase profits and player satisfaction. Sound too good to be true? Join the webinar and discover how data covers all bases you need for a lucrative game.

    Learn how to:
    * Target the right players, and the key engagement strategies that work
    * Maximize profits from ads and IAP, and which players are most receptive

  • Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots Smart(phone) Personalization: Apps vs. Bots David Hu, VP of Engineering for Dexter Recorded: May 19 2016 49 mins
    In this webinar, we’re going to talk about how the hyper-personalization of smartphones is taking mobile marketing to an entirely new level. Search Engine Optimization has transformed the way brands are marketers get their products to the public and the trend is reaching into Apps as well. Given that 90% of users’ time on their smartphones are spent on apps (according to some sources), getting users to your particular app can be particularly lucrative.

    But that’s not the only way that Smartphone Personalization is innovating how we market: In-app ads and how to block in-app adds (and how to outsmart them) is the next challenge marketers must face. Our webinar will bring together a mix of voices, all experts in their respective fields, to provide a unique and complex perspective from all angles of Mobile Marketing.

    In Part 1 of this compelling Masters of Mobile Data series, you'll learn how to acquire high value users the right way. If you build it, they will come. Right. That may be the hope of many mobile app publishers, but it’s not even remotely true when it comes to the battle for quality users in 2016. And while most app publishers know it’s essential to have a fierce user acquisition strategy in place, what that consists of and how they put it into practice is another thing altogether.

    That’s why VentureBeat took a deep dive into mobile user acquisition. We were determined to find out what’s working for successful app publishers, what you should be paying to acquire high-value users, and which user acquisition solutions you need to partner with in order to have an ironclad UA methodology in place.

    In the process, we surveyed over 700 mobile developers with a billion users among them. We also studied data summarizing the results of almost 14 billion mobile ads, and talked to leading user acquisition experts.

    Of course, you could read the full report -- or you could tune into this not-to-be missed webinar that will cover the most essential takeaways needed to hook those quality users.

    In this webinar, you’ll:

    * Learn the price app publishers are currently paying to acquire quality users across several categories
    * Review the top user acquisition platforms and why
    * Understand the role of timing in UA
    * Maximize organic installs of your mobile application

    Monetizing the mobile user is becoming more complex these days, especially as monetization expectations are higher as time goes on.

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users

    In part 2 of this compelling Masters of Mobile Data series, you'll learn that there’s no such thing as a smartphone user, tablet user, or web user. Rather, it’s the same user who hops between the different experiences. By the same logic, there’s no point in developing a “push messaging” strategy when what you need is a holistic communications strategy.

    How are some companies able to use mobile as part of a broader customer engagement strategy, when so many others struggle to even get mobile right within its own silo? How are these marketers able to know what’s really working, taking into account all of the various multichannel effects that drive people to the app and from the app into transactions that occur outside the app, using real data, not guesswork.

    Join our group of experts from retail, ecommerce, and travel as they review what works and what doesn’t when it comes to omnichannel success.

    In this webinar you’ll learn:
    * How to think about mobile apps versus the web, and the role of mobile in the wider customer journey
    * How omnichannel marketers integrate user preferences and profile information across multiple sources
    * Mobile strategies that work in an omnichannel environment (hint: it’s more than in-app messaging and email)

    Shoppers have an unlimited number of retail apps that promise to deliver the right product at the right price at the right time. The latest and greatest app bells and whistles may attract the new user, but developing them into a long-term follower/ user is easier said than done. It’s easier to get them then to keep them, after all.

    With an increasing number of apps on a user’s device, app marketers are challenged to draw the user's attention not only through efficient user acquisition initiatives, but also via engagement and retention activities. Leveraging marketing automation technology to increase user lifetime value and minimize cost per install is the crux of the issue. Let VentureBeat’s panel of experts shed light on how to use marketing automation to implement acquisition strategies that work.

    By identifying synergies between acquisition and user engagement, this webinar hits the high points of reactivation tactics (via push, email, retargeting) and virality initiatives to increase LTV and lower CPI.

    In this webinar, you will:

    * Harness the power of marketing automation to build a user acquisition program that works
    * Explore key strategies for efficient, highly-optimized user acquisition
    * Gain new best practices for engaging and retaining users while reducing churn
