    Bridging the online and offline marketing gap
    Mark Coffey, SVP of Strategic Partnerships, GasBuddy Recorded: Dec 12 2018 57 mins
    While companies have been ditching traditional marketing methods in their race to capture the online-savvy millennials, no one is on their phone 24/7, and delivering brand messages out in the world is still vital to capturing mindshare.

    Those first-gen marketing methods, including outdoor, tv, direct mail, and more, are still valuable and essential to building a stronger bottom line, especially when integrated as a vital part of an overarching marketing campaign, firing on all cylinders. That’s easier than ever, because traditional doesn’t mean old-school and analog anymore, and innovations in marketing technology don’t only apply to your online channels. You can apply your martech capabilities not just for tracking, measurement, and attribution, but to keep tabs on omnichannel competitor strategies, design the most effective campaign copy in every arena, create the most impactful rollouts between all your channels and more.

  • How esports can combine old and new monetization models to reach new heights
    How esports can combine old and new monetization models to reach new heights
    Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer, GamesBeat Recorded: Dec 4 2018 60 mins
    Money is pouring into esports. There are more players, more games, more viewers, and bigger prize pools — and companies are taking note. Investment is coming from all angles, and everyone is looking for a piece of the pie. But many of the existing monetization models of esports only seek to follow the tried and true formats from traditional sports.

    There is a lot for the video game industry to learn from the legacy sports broadcast model; but there’s a catch: The video games industry uses some of the world’s most advanced interactive technology to create some of the world’s most compelling entertainment experiences.

    So why would we just do it the same way as before? The answer? We probably won’t. Not for long at least.

    In this special session, our panel of experts will unpack the old and the new of esports, and explore where genuine innovation may come from in the future. We’ll discuss how to get the most out of traditional methods, and how some companies are experimenting with new approaches to engaging with audiences and driving revenue.

    Register now to join us for free.

    Attend this webinar and learn:
    * How the current esports model stacks up against traditional sports, and where the money is coming from now
    * The new technologies that will change the existing business model
    * The difference between formal esports and personalized broadcasting — and what those differences mean for your bottom line

  • Why a 'channel agnostic' approach to search can deliver greater ROI
    Why a 'channel agnostic' approach to search can deliver greater ROI
    Mike McDougall, Organic Search Director, Stickyeyes Recorded: Nov 21 2018 35 mins
    Stop treating organic and paid as seperate channels and drive greater efficiencies and increase ROI.

    Brands are still approaching search marketing as two separate channels, organic and paid, and often engaging separate agencies to work on very different approaches. But in modern search, is this approach really relevant, and is it delivering the best possible return?

    This session will discuss why an ‘channel agnostic’ approach to search is not only more effective at getting more out of your agencies, but a much more efficient approach to generating a return on your investment.

    There are four key ways to ensure that your CX is flawless and your market share keeps growing. It starts from the inside out, with a unified vision of CX; a strategy to solve problems fast while offering self-help; continuous, ongoing iteration and improvement of best practices, and a consistent, personalized experience in every way.

  • Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Abinash Tripathy Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift Recorded: Sep 20 2018 61 mins
    Reportedly, 44% of Americans would rather scrub a toilet than call customer support. And heeding that cry for help back in 2016 or so, companies across the land stepped up to the plate, taking customer service from the phone to texting and messaging with AI-powered, NLP-reliant smart chatbots that could tell jokes, offer small talk, place taco orders, and more.

    Where those messenger bots fell down, though, was in actually understanding customer intent and delivering on-point customer service. So companies were left with frustrated customers who’d still rather get a root canal than talk on the phone, but left with a broken messenger-based solution that only made the experience worse.

    The answer: Make bots "dumber," to make customer service smarter. Simpler rules-based chatbots are easy to implement, easy to use, 99-percent effective web and mobile-based messenger apps that don't try to hold conversations — they just solve customer service issues, fast.

    To learn more about why companies like Amazon are dumping the NLP bots and going all-in on a new generation of rules-based chatbots, don’t miss this VB Live event!

    You’ll learn:
    * The difference between NLP and rules-based bots and why it matters
    * Why companies like Amazon are turning away from natural language processing-driven bots to rules-based bots
