  • How to Make Video for Mobile Audiences How to Make Video for Mobile Audiences Mark Mallchok, Director of Accounts; Dave Less, Director of Video; Mark Rochon, Content Team Manager Recorded: Sep 15 2016 45 mins
    This presentation will explore not just who is my marketing video audience, but how are they viewing the video? David, Mark, and Mark will discuss the different approaches required for mobile video from the storytelling and the aesthetic/technical perspective.

    We'll breakdown these important questions: Can you be sure that your audience will have the audio turned on? Why does direct address to camera work so well for mobile? What’s the ideal length for a mobile video? Could a slick, commercial style video actually be less successful than a playful more personal story?

    Addressing these ideas through the concepts of mobile aesthetics, user authenticity, personalization, humor, narrative, and serialization, David, Mark, and Mark explain how to optimize your video marketing for the vast mobile audience.

    • 8 different video types to support the BoFu

    Pokemon Go has taken the gaming world by storm. Released in a few countries on July 6, Pokémon Go shot to No. 1 in the top downloads, shooting ahead of games like Clash Royale, Clash of Clans, and Candy Crush Saga. Pokémon Go is making at least $1.6 million a day in the U.S. alone, according to tracking firm Sensor Tower. Even more importantly, it appears to be getting reluctant indoors-y types out of doors.

  • Why Your Content Marketing is Failing (and how to fix it) Why Your Content Marketing is Failing (and how to fix it) Gary DeAsi, Senior Manager, Digital Marketing & Brand SmartBear Software Recorded: Aug 17 2016 59 mins
    In a digital world where customers have all the power and everyone is a publisher, increasingly high competition and standards are pressuring marketing teams into a race to produce higher quality content, in greater volumes, and at a faster rate than ever before, often with the same amount of resources. But while content is the fuel for every digital marketing engine, not everyone gets the same mileage out of it. A 2016 report from Content Marketing Institute found that while 88% of B2B organizations are using content marketing, only 30% rated their content efforts as being effective for reaching their goals.

    This session delivers an insightful overview of common costly mistakes that can be killing your content marketing results, and a deep dive on how to maximize content marketing ROI with actionable tips and steps to amplify the impact of every content initiative, including:

    · Content Planning. Creating monthly and quarterly content plans aligned with the customer journey, and key business goals and metrics

    · Content Creation. Digital content creation approaches optimized for search, engagement and conversion, designed for re-purposing

    · Content Distribution. Integrated multi-channel content distribution tactics to reach both larger—and more qualified—target audiences across platforms

    · Data Utilization, Automation and Metrics. The utilization of data, automation and marketing technology to test, measure and enhance targeting to optimize results

    · Content Lifecycle Management. Understanding the stages of the digital content lifecycle to implement an efficient, repeatable process and lengthen the lifetime value of content
  • How to market for Google (and therefore your customers) How to market for Google (and therefore your customers) Jennifer Riggins, Marketing Consultant Recorded: Aug 17 2016 45 mins
    Time and again I hear from so-called captains of their industries what they want to say about their products and services. As thought leaders, they use jargon and insider terms to sound like experts, but when you're doing that for website, that's ridiculous. If you want new customers to find you, you need to write for what they are asking Google. I would recommend signing up for Google AdWords before because this will be a hands-on demo of how to use Google Keyword Planner as the backbone of your online content marketing strategy, that will provide you with SEO success even if you never spend a buck on AdWords.

    Workshop will include:
    - basic explanation of What is SEO
    - how to use the free Google Keyword Planner
    - how to choose the low-hanging fruit keywords (low competition, higher volume)
    - how to then apply those keywords, choosing 1-2 for across your entire website and then the rest for specific themed landing pages
    - how H1, H2 headers, bullets, bolding, etc work
    - backlink strategy - don't send all the juice to your homepage!
  • Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Jason Allen, VP Multi-Channel, GameStop Recorded: Aug 16 2016 61 mins
    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). Join Jason Allen from mega-retailer GameStop and Marissa Tarelton from RetailMeNot as they discuss how 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
    * Learn acquisition-engagement synergy tactics such as: pre- and post-install segmentation, organic growth, retargeting and reward-based acquisition

  • 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?

  • GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat Sep 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Building brand affection is one of the best things you can do for any product. Think about it -- do you ask for a tissue or do you ask for a Kleenex? Do you look for a plastic bandage or do you ask for a Band-Aid? Do you "use a search engine to find out information about your blind date" or do you Google them?

    This is more than performance marketing -- which evolved solely to drive transactions and downloads -- this is awareness marketing. And for the games community, it's about getting people to remember and associate an emotion with your game, so they seek it out now -- and later. But brand awareness is hard to measure -- and hard to get your arms around. Many games teams spend little to no budget, favoring the results-focused performance marketing. We're going to show you how to be better than them -- and get the advantage for your mobile game, starting today.

    Venturebeat's own CEO Matt Marshall will sit down with execs from the gaming industry such as Seriously's VP of marketing and Eli Danziger, product manager for YouTube Ads as well as the CMO of Smule, Rob Singer. Together, we'll discuss storytelling and brand awareness marketing tips tailored to mobile games today.

    In this third installment of our Building Games Communities series, you will:

    * Learn how to use YouTube and other channels to drive brand awareness for mobile games;
    * Find the right time to invest in brand awareness marketing in your mobile game lifecycle; and
    * Understand the right KPIs to measure ROI on awareness marketing.

    Our esteemed panel for this rockstar discussion includes:

  • Website personalization: What online shoppers want now Website personalization: What online shoppers want now Emma Mcilroy, CEO, WildFang Oct 6 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We know one thing for sure -- three quarters of digital natives want a truly personalized web experience. But most marketers aren't actually personalizing their website and messaging content. Why? Because it's hard. And expensive. And messy. And where do you even start with all the data points?

    Machine learning is the key. And simplicity is the exception rather than the rule -- it has to be easy to use or forget it. It's time to stop talking about personalization and start actually using it or risk losing out on the the 80% of consumers who felt that brands were not familiar or only somewhat familiar with their needs.

    We're going to sit down with the CEO from the popular clothing retailer WildFang. She will reveal how it increased revenue by personalizing its e-commerce site to target small groups of visitors based on their behaviors (across many channels) and affinities. CEO Emma McIllroy will be joined by Craig Schinn, former digital-marketing leader for an outdoor-clothing e-commerce site, who can speak to the thought leadership for marketing professionals in real-time marketing personalization strategy as well as WildFang's case study in particular as it unleashed the power of machine learning-based website personalization..

    In the webinar you will learn how to:
    * Increase web conversions and revenue with personalized website marketing
    * Use behavior-based audience segments to better target visitors.
    * Target customers who are most likely to buy or most likely to churn using data science and advanced machine learning algorithms.
    * Use cross-channel customer data to power more relevant website marketing campaigns

  • Squad goals:  Why cost per lead is failing your lead gen strategy Squad goals: Why cost per lead is failing your lead gen strategy Sam Yount, CMO, LendingTree Oct 6 2016 7:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cost per lead. It’s like your basic black dress or suit -- never lets you down and crucial in crunch time. But everything we knew about about lead generation has changed. Marketing now owns most of the IT budget and is on tap for the lion’s share of revenue generation. If we’re supposed to Always Be Closing, the marketing team is on the line to deliver qualified leads with high ROI. That’s where we start to get into trouble.

    The new world order has moved way past cost per lead into outcome-based performance. It’s not quantity anymore -- it’s quality. How do you pull your marketing lead generation strategy out of this paradigm? We’re going to walk you through it in this free and interactive executive session with VB’s own director of marketing technology, Stewart Rogers, and his panel of lead generation and demand generation experts.

    In this webinar, you will:

    * Understand how to move past quantity and generate quality opportunities
    * Build the right marketing KPIs for defining lead quality and lead conversion
    * Define a conversion strategy that builds retention

    Speakers include:

  • The Data Dilemma The Data Dilemma Charlotte Rogers (Marketing Week) and Steve McNicholas (Managing Director of Marketing Solutions at Callcredit) Oct 12 2016 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Data and analytics are the lifeblood of effective marketing and consumer engagement. However, we found many of the marketers we recently surveyed are facing a data dilemma. On the one hand, they know data analytics is integral to achieving their marketing objectives. On the other hand, many are struggling with the resource-intensive nature that navigating data demands. This data dilemma is two sides of the same coin, where marketers can feel overpowered, rather than empowered, by data.
    In this Marketing Week webinar, in association with Callcredit, we will explore some of the reasons behind The Data Dilemma and ways in which marketers can gain control over their data, to translate it into insight that drives growth.
  • Email marketing: How to achieve 300% ROI Email marketing: How to achieve 300% ROI Tommy Lamb, Director of Loyalty and Retention, Teleflora Oct 19 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Consumers want to be catered to without being stalked. The right degree of email personalization leads to greater brand loyalty and LTV. The overdone personalization approach leads to unsubscribes. But email marketing is more than just opens and click-through rates (though that’s part of it).

  • Optimizing Technical Product Content: SEO, XML, and Findability Optimizing Technical Product Content: SEO, XML, and Findability Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, Val Swisher, Keith Schengili-Roberts and Joe Gelb Nov 2 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    There’s a joke going around that asks: "Where’s the best place to hide a dead body?" The answer: "On the second page of a Google search." It underscores the fact that if your technical content is difficult to find, it might as well not exist.

    Customers want to find answers, not search for them. As professional communicators, it's our job to utilize effective search engine optimization (SEO) techniques designed to help ensure prospects and customers can find the right answers quickly. Optimizing content for findability is a necessity regardless of whether your content is publicly available and indexed by Google, or protected behind a customers-only documentation portal.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his co-host, Val Swisher, Founder, and CEO of Content Rules, for a free, one-hour web discussion with DITA Specialist Keith Schengili-Roberts of IXIASOFT, and dynamic content delivery guru Joe Gelb, President of Zoomin Software. The presenters will discuss content optimization and share practical strategies for enriching technical product content and improving findability, while enhancing the customer experience.

    Special Focus on DITA

    While there are several mechanisms built into the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) that are designed to make it easy to find content for reuse, a successful SEO strategy for technical content requires more. Creating a taxonomy and inserting descriptive metadata into your DITA maps and topics is a good start, but this is only the beginning of effective SEO for DITA-based technical content. Attendees can expect to discover techniques that can be used to make DITA-based content easy for your users to find.
