  • Hyper-personalization: Marketing to a segment of one
    Hyper-personalization: Marketing to a segment of one Cherie Yu, Head of Local Marketing, Lyft Recorded: Sep 21 2017 61 mins
    Consumers aren’t actually impressed by just a "Hi!" And as deluged by content as they are, they know they have the luxury of simply ignoring you. To catch their interest, you need to demonstrate that you know what they want, and you can deliver it.

    In other words, hyper-personalization. Innovations in marketing tech, like AI, machine learning, and shopping bots, enable you to microsegment all the way down to a customer’s purchase and interest patterns to develop messaging that triggers powerful interest, creates deep engagement, and drives sales.

    Learn more about the tech you need, the strategies that win, and how to deliver the “you know me” satisfaction that keeps customers coming back for more when you join this VB Live event!

    Don’t miss out!

    You’ll learn:
    * Why broad segmentation is no longer enough
    * How shopping bots, AI + more enable one-to-one marketing
    * How psychographics, lifecycle data, and multi-channel behavior can build customer profiles
    * How engagement, experience and retention improve one-to-one marketing
    * The importance of not being creepy
    * The trends and future of hyper-personalization

    For LTV, engagement, and life­cycle, organic installs blow paid install campaigns out of the water—and they're a lot cheaper.

To get the most out of your entire marketing funnel, not just your app store presence, you need to step up your ASO game with these key takeaways from our latest in-depth, Godzilla-sized ASO report.

    For report highlights, key best practices and can't-miss ASO insights from super-analyst Stewart Rogers, join our latest interactive VB Live event!

  • Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base
    Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base Marissa Aydlett, VP Marketing, Appboy Recorded: Jul 13 2017 60 mins
    A push notification is a tricky kind of social engagement: it can be a tap on the shoulder, a punch in the face, or water torture. In other words, it can be tremendously successful at driving commerce and engagement, or it could piss your customer off so badly they'll go rip you a new one on Twitter. And we've seen how well that works out for brands.

    At the very least, every misstep reduces open rates, strikes a blow against retention and destroys engagement. You want to know how to not be the boor at a cocktail party, because push notifications, one of the most powerful and immediate engagement tools in your arsenal (when you do it right) can garner 2770% higher conversion rates.

    Don't be part of the 63 percent of marketers who stumble on the messaging, timing, and frequency of your notification strategy—join this interactive VB Live event.

    * Discover the one trick to never-fail push notifications everywhere, not just apps

    Unifying Customer Data Doesn't Have A One-Size-Fits-All Approach David Raab, founder of the Customer Data Platform Institute Recorded: Apr 20 2017 46 mins
    And that’s okay! When asked, digital marketers can rattle off a long list ways unified customer data would help them in their jobs, from better ad targeting (and retargeting) to smarter emails to more effective web personalization just to name a few. But there’s a big gap between knowing what you would do with customer data and actually deploying specific use cases. In this webinar, founder of the Customer Data Platform Institute David Raab takes attendees through how to approach customer data unification, so you get value right away – and set yourself up for more success as you go. Specifically:

    1. We’ll review the different scenarios that result when you’re using one data source, a few similar ones, or multiple disparate sources

    2. Then, we’ll look at how a customer data platform (CDP), depending on its features, supports an array of applications for the data, from simply providing access to adding messaging and analytics on top

    3. Lastly, we’ll bring those two dimensions together to look at the sequencing of use cases that result from the various combinations of these inputs

    Mobile ad dollars ripe for the capture Alex Tarrand, VP of Marketing, Lucktastic Oct 3 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The smartphone is the world’s first three-foot device — the only piece of technology that’s never out of your reach, from waking to sleeping. It’s the first thing a consumer reaches for in the morning, the tool they rely on throughout the day, and the last thing they look at in the evening.

  • Why video marketing has to be your top priority
    Why video marketing has to be your top priority Jess Jacobs, Director of Marketing, Wayfair Nov 2 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    All signs point to the fact that both consumers and business prospects would much rather watch a marketing video than read your marketing copy. Four times as many consumers would rather watch a video about a product than read about it; 59% of senior executives would prefer to watch a video than look at your content.

    Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter, all of which tend to have a pretty good handle on consumer interest and focus, have shifted to prioritizing video content, making it easier to post, watch, and share.

    And here’s a fun one: Social video generates 1,200% more shares than text and images combined.

    So if video marketing isn’t your top priority, you are leaving a lot of money on the table. Don’t get left behind — join this VB Live event to find out how to leverage the extraordinary growth and potential of video marketing

    In this webinar you’ll learn:
    * How to use video the right way to promote content to a targeted audience
    * How to leverage video at each part of the funnel to move customers along the journey
    * How to optimize video across social media
    * How video fits into a successful overall content strategy

  • Centralizing Intelligence to Power Individualized Experiences
    Centralizing Intelligence to Power Individualized Experiences Liz Miller, CMO Council and Mark Swenson,Teradata Nov 9 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    True one-to-one interaction is considered the holy grail of customer experience. However, according to a recent CMO Council study, only 7 percent of marketers are able to consistently create these individualized experiences across all channels.

    For the third and final webinar of this series, the CMO Council and Teradata are concluding the conversation around shaping customer experiences by focusing on the importance of coordinated cross-channel messaging through a centralized hub for all customer interactions—one that listens to all interactions, automatically tells marketing channels when and about what to say based on all the latest data and machine-learning analytics, and applies contact governance so that your marketing is smart and optimized, not fragmented by channel.

    During this one-hour webinar, our expert panel will share insights around how companies can build one central messaging hub for all customer interactions, regardless of channel. Marketers can elevate their marketing with a marketing hub to optimize and coordinate messaging, analytics and data so that the messaging automatically shifts, whether it’s time to sell or time to provide customer care, ensuring that each interaction is good for the customer and the brand. A featured brand expert will also share their company’s challenges in this area, as well as the steps they have taken in order to create consistent cross-channel messaging for the customer and make one-to-one experiences a reality for their organization.

    Among the topics to be discussed:

    • Challenges to achieving a full, cohesive view of all customer interactions
    • How to balance multiple customer interaction strategies amid the focus on clicks and conversions
    • Industry best practices and results from marketers who are coordinating their
    marketing in a hub and how it has elevated their marketing

  • The future of marketing is influencers
    The future of marketing is influencers Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Dec 7 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Influencer marketing is one of the big watchwords for 2018, as ad blockers, ad fraud, and ad network malware become curse words on both sides of the paid advertising industry.

    But influencer marketing doesn’t mean tapping a celebrity. It’s not about follower count -- it’s about micro-influencers with carefully curated crowds. And while it’s tricky to find the right person to deliver the right message about your brand to the audience that’ll be the most receptive, when you find the right match, the intangible benefits like deeper storytelling, genuine connection to an audience, and greater engagement translate directly to bottom line results.

    Get in on the power of influencer marketing when you join this VB Live event. From ambassador programs to why celebrity sponsorships don’t work and more, you’ll learn how to navigate the influencer marketing landscape and start to leverage the heart-to-heart connection that a harmonious match can create.

    You'll learn:
    * How brands find the "right" influencers and the role of word-of-mouth-marketing
    * How your company can leverage influencers to build your brand
    * The difference between celebrity endorsement and true influencers
    * Who are the big social media names and influencers to watch
