A customer journey map can be the keystone to improving and analyzing any customer experience or channel.

Marketers who manage email lists often struggle with two interconnected issues:
How do I continue to keep my subscribers interested and clicking through my emails?
What should I do when subscribers stop opening and clicking, but don’t unsubscribe?
These issues are very common but certainly not insurmountable. With a well-planned reengagement campaign that includes compelling creative and clear business rules regarding who to target and when, it can be fairly simple to keep subscribers from defecting. (And with many email software platforms, such a campaign can be automated too!)
Register for this complimentary webinar to learn more about:
•Best practices for email reengagement programs
•How to garner interest through your value proposition and offers
•Which subscribers to consider unengaged – and when to purge them from your lists
•Why it’s in your best interest to purge unengaged subscribers
•Getting started with automating your reengagement campaign
If you have ever been called upon to forecast sales, revenue, demand, or other important business KPIs, it’s important to understand the different forecasting approaches available. A typical approach is spreadsheet-based judgmental forecasting where you project revenue, volume, or profits for a business. However, these top-down forecasts wind up being inaccurate because they don’t account for external economic factors, or they are driven by wishful thinking at the senior executive level.
In this webinar, we will empower you to develop data-driven forecasts that don’t just project an outcome, but also a confidence interval around that outcome by leveraging the following techniques:
•Forecasting an outcome variable using only the historical data for that variable
•Diagnosing cyclicality and seasonality in your outcome variable
•Identifying, gathering and preparing exogenous variables for your forecast (e.g., economic circumstances, search volume/popular interest in a given topic, weather-related data)
•An introduction to ARIMAX forecasting models that incorporate exogenous variables
