  • [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness
    [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness Jon Ann Lindsey, Google and Val Swisher, Content Rules Recorded: Sep 19 2017 59 mins
    We’ve all heard advice about how to improve source content. These tips and tricks usually sound like perfectly reasonable suggestions. Common sense, right?

    But, where's the proof that these so-called best practices actually improve customer experience? In 2016, content strategists from Google visited 11 countries to talk to customers in order to find out what these real people actually want and need from their content. As it turns out, lessons learned from Google customer feedback research provided some surprising results.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and my special guests, content strategy manager, Jon Ann Lindsey (Google) and global content strategy expert, Val Swisher (Content Rules), for a lively discussion about the importance of getting feedback before you make decisions about how you’ll translate and localize content. You'll learn several ideas you can use to adjust your source content so that your translations are improved. You’ll see lots of examples from content in the real world and leave with actionable items that you can implement immediately.

    You will learn which problems Google found (they weren't just the usual suspects) and to make big improvements in your content that are easy to implement. And you'll discover why overtly "empathetic" language and reassurances don't always serve the needs of customers.

    ASO or GTFO: App store optimization that works Trey Stout, CTO and co-founder, ScribbleChat and Handwriting.io Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    For LTV, engagement, and life­cycle, organic installs blow paid install campaigns out of the water—and they're a lot cheaper. VB Insight analysts report that if you want to boost organic downloads by at least 20 percent—or in some cases double or even triple that rate—you need to get in the ASO game.

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!

    Machine Learning: The what, how, and why you need it now Andy Barkett, VP of AI and Machine Learning, REX Recorded: Jun 14 2017 61 mins
    The short answer is that machine learning is the enemy of a post-truth world: Set loose on large data sets, it’s used to uncover patterns and deliver key insights that help predict how things will unfold in the future. The long answer is that from the transformation of forecasting and predictive analytics to the development of self-driving cars to Microsoft working to prevent blindness in children, machine learning has quickly become the kind of technology that transforms the world, from impactful business use cases to powerful social change.

    Are humans the lucrative new distribution channel?

  • Boxing and Unpacking Content For A Digital Migration
    Boxing and Unpacking Content For A Digital Migration David Hobbs, David Hobbs Consulting Recorded: Mar 7 2017 55 mins
    Website improvement projects are often undertaken because they come with the promise of dramatically increasing business results. The way in which we tackle these projects—and the approaches we choose to use—determine whether our efforts will yield improvements or not.

    Migrating web content from one system to another can be challenging. To be successful—and to get the results we seek—it’s best to start with a plan.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my guest, David Hobbs, for a free, one-hour webinar designed to help you plan for a website content migration. Attend this session to discover why web content migration planning should start from the perspective of quality. Learn why boxing—and unpacking—content can help us achieve desired results. And, find out why, unlike a house move, we often need to unpack the content during a content migration project.

    ABOUT OUR GUEST

    David Hobbs helps organizations that want higher-impact digital presences, especially those ready to take on silos and otherwise disconnected site visitor experiences. These types of complex, high-impact changes require early visioning and buy-in (a “build it and they will come” approach won’t work). David works with organizations on early strategy as well as how to achieve the content needed on the new site (including migration and rollout planning).

    David has a Master’s in Computer Science and started his career as a C programmer. Before the web took off, David lived in a mud hut in Chad working with trash-collection and water-distribution system community groups.

  • Structured Docs + Taxonomy: Finding New Answers in Your Content
    Structured Docs + Taxonomy: Finding New Answers in Your Content Joe Pairman, Mekon, and Andreas Blumauer, Semantic Web Company Sep 28 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We think of content as documents: articles, books, presentations, videos. However, readers focus not on the documents but on the answers that they may contain — the answers to questions such as "what is this for," "how do I," "why should I," and even "what is all the information on this particular subject." The tools of structured content let us sequence, chunk, and reuse information in a customer-friendly way. Yet, often a single chunk of information is not the whole answer — that answer lies in the meaningful connections between various pieces of content.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my guests, Joe Pairman of Mekon, and Andreas Blumauer, managing partner of the Semantic Web Company for this free webinar. Joe and Andreas will guide you on a journey that will show you how taxonomy helps us build meaningful connections so that readers can understand the big picture. They will talk about doing a better job of surfacing information for search engines—from Google to our own intranets. Ultimately, when granular chunks of content are networked with taxonomy tags as a knowledge graph, the system can answer questions that no-one has imagined yet — the myriad of messy, complex queries that arise in real-life knowledge-seeking.

    Key takeaways:
    • Benefits and principles of granular structured content, and how to prepare your own content for this new architecture.
    • Best practices for linking structured content to standards-based taxonomies and pitfalls to avoid
    • The underlying semantic architecture to build a truly mature and scalable approach to linking content and data

    ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

    Joe Pairman is Lead Consultant at Mekon Ltd., helping clients from healthcare to software realize the full potential of structured content and innovative information delivery with taxonomy. Andreas Blumauer is managing partner of the Semantic Web Company and is experienced with large-scale semantic technology projects in various industry sectors.

  • 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

  • Why can't my business be seen on Google Maps or Local Results?
    Why can't my business be seen on Google Maps or Local Results? Nick Gomez & James Barber (Co-Head of SEO & Senior Account Manager) Nov 7 2017 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Local SEO is more important than ever, with Google increasingly favouring local search results and allocating a significant portion of the search engine results page to the local 3 pack (a Google Map entry featuring 3 local businesses).

  • 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
  • Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI
    Preparing Your Content for the Future: Bots, Machine Learning and AI Steffen Frederiksen, DitaExchange Nov 16 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Are you ready for how AI, machine learning, and other future technology will affect content development?

    The database revolution changed our relationship to data, making it reusable for different target audiences, contexts and situations. It also made it ready for flexible delivery to different apps and across many different platforms and media. But somehow these outcomes never fully transferred over to content. How can we bring this same revolution to content and win the same kind of enormous improvements that would prepare us for the future?

    Structured content management enables organizations to store, organize and build their content so that pieces are easily discoverable, reusable, reconfigurable and adaptable. It provides the perfect solution for constructing large, complex documents, but also for delivering modular content to chatbots, portal sites, and mobile apps. But, more importantly, it is also key to future-proofing your content for emerging technological trends.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, Founder and CSO of DitaExchange, for this free one-hour webinar. Attendees will learn what structured content management is and how it works. They will understand what benefits structured content can have for writers, project managers, business owners, IT departments and content consumers. They will also learn how to prepare their content to be fed into new technologies with practical examples from the field.
  • To follow or nofollow? That is the question.
    To follow or nofollow? That is the question. Nick Gomez & James Barber (Co-Head of SEO & Senior Account Manager) Dec 5 2017 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    To really understand what is going on with follow vs. no follow links, we need to provide a bit of background about how most links work in the realm of SEO. When a site page gets an inbound link, which is a hyperlink pointing to that page, the page gets a small SEO boost. Think of a link as a point, and the more links you have, the more points.
