Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Social Media Marketing

  • Before every company executive sits down to write a blog, pull together a slideshow, or provide data for an infographic, marketers must come up with an overarching strategy for their content marketing initiative.

    Without this, consumers will see a scattershot approach that doesn't fit with your organization's messaging – and they'll miss out on the opportunity to learn more about your business. Do it well and you'll have forged the foundation for real connections between the faces of your org and your customers, separating yourself from competitors and producing a return on your content marketing investment.

    Given that so many companies today use content marketing, how can you rise over your competitors? How can your content sparkle, capturing consumers' eyes (or ears), versus the virtual noise of paid and unpaid content filling the Internet and mobile devices?

    This VentureBeat webinar stars some of the top experts in content marketing. When it concludes you'll know:

    • How to design a content marketing program that complements your marketing initiatives
    • The way to find your voice – and how to adhere to it across media and platforms
    • Which internal professionals to target for particular platforms (and how to get them to agree to do it)
    • The benefits of content marketing, such as lead generation, expanded social presence, cementing brand recognition, and building individual executives' brands
    • How to determine the ROI of content marketing, plus the tools and metrics to use.

    Speakers:
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VB Insight
    * Corey Weiner, COO, Jun Group
    * Chase Hooley, Senior Manager, Content Marketing, MapR Technologies
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat


    This webinar will be based on Stewart Rogers' VB Insight report, which will be published in February, 2016.

  • The inbound marketing methodology for lead generation and lead nurturing is increasingly popular year over year in B2B industries. Yet many business don’t fully understand what it takes to transition to a content driven and automated form of marketing via the internet.

    Everyone wants to experience success as quickly as possible, but not every company is in a position to execute inbound marketing for many reasons. It’s a big change for businesses who are use to event based campaigning, advertising, or cold calling.

    The goal of this presentation is to help you assess - for those who want to transition to inbound marketing - how ready you are to start campaigning. Or perhaps you’ve invested in a marketing automation platform but not getting the traction you’d like to see. In either case, after this presentation you’ll have a precise understanding of what to tackle operationally to make your company's inbound machine roar to life.

    Here are just a few of the issues we’ll address:

    •How ready is your marketing leader and inbound advocate?
    •How ready is your email list?
    •What should your first marketing goals be?
    •What services will you outsource?
    •Appropriate document management for security and version control
    •Is the needed social media protocol in place?
    •Roles of team members

    The presenter, Marguerite Inscoe had a 12 year career in workplace learning and performance before transitioning to inbound marketing 5 years ago. She is a blogger, social media marketer, email marketer, and certified with Hubspot as a partner. This fits around her other full time job as mom, wife, choir member, and a martial arts practitioner.

    Marguerite’s full service agency, ReLaunchU, specializes in internet marketing for B2B companies - particularly those in the consulting and training industries.
  • Marketing automation platforms (MAPs) help to identify, qualify, convert, and grow customers. It does this by enabling marketers to define rules and processes by which to engage customers at greater scale and with greater relevance, driving a demand generation overall strategy.

    Marketers using marketing automation are substantially increasing key metrics like demand generation, leads, conversions, and revenue. We find in our own research that 80% of MAP users see their leads increase, and 77% see conversions increase.

    Yet only a fraction of businesses are using marketing automation for demand generation today. Why?

    First and foremost, it’s hard to choose: The top challenge in vendor-selection is simply understanding the differences in functionality between them. Not only are there more vendors than ever, but more features. MAPs are made up of many different feature-sets.

    Implementation is also a challenge. Nearly three in four MAP users said they had issues or delays in getting results.

    This webinar is based on data from 243 marketing automation users. The findings cover features, pricing, and services for 24 of the top vendors. We also conducted dozens of interviews and incorporated market share close to 20 million websites.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:
    * Select the right vendor for you, based on business type, size, and industry
    * Understand and avoid delays and challenges
    * Maximize ROI by using tactics that work best

  • You wouldn't order a grinder in New York any more than you'd request a sub in Boston. Residents of both states might understand your sandwich order, but using the wrong lingo is a surefire way to discourage customers from clicking on your mobile app.

    Cross outside the U.S. borders and the need to use local language, including slang, only increases; get something translated incorrectly and it could be illegible, incorrect, or offensive. If businesses don't work with regional experts or truly know a nation's preferences they come across as arrogant, uninformed, or both. Words, though, paint only half the picture. Equally important: Cultural innuendos, monetization differences, and personalization expectations vary in each nation and region, and marketers should tailor their messages accordingly.

    The VentureBeat Insight webinar, "How to Spell Success Everywhere in the World," discusses the steps marketing pros can take to build an international message that cements their brand while tailoring it to specific regions.

    Marketing professionals will learn how to:

    • Increase sales, loyalty, and engagement through localization and translation

    • Think globally for campaign creation

    • Partner with in-market experts for enhanced effectiveness

    • Prepare your brand for an international reputation

    • Capture, use, and analyze metrics from around the globe

    • Empower customer's experiences through localized storytelling

  • Every single day, the world's internet users spend well over 150,000 aggregated years reading, watching, clicking, liking, and commenting on digital content on the two global superpowers of digital content's sites: Facebook, and Google's YouTube. And every single day, more and more of the world's $600 billion advertising spend moves from TV and other legacy media to digital.

    Cue WWIII.

    One of the hottest battlegrounds is digital video. Mobile video advertising has jumped 5X in past months, and video offers the clearest path for TV's $172.5 billion in ad spend to go digital. Facebook's been staking a claim here, and media outlets have been proclaiming Google's demise.

    We'll dig into the findings of John Koetsier's latest VB Insight report and investigate actionable strategies for today's video marketer. We're also going to talk to hot video-based marketing leaders about what works for them in their own video content -- and their biggest tips for avoiding pitfalls and costly mistakes.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    *Learn where the youth and millennial markets are watching their video content
    * Focus your marketing strategy on the right platform for your niche
    * Get contextual and in-depth data to make informed decisions about your video platform today... and tomorrow
    * Monetize your content the right way... once and for all.

  • There's no disputing that email marketing is an integral part of successful marketing organizations, but as with all marketing channels, it's no longer enough to be the master of one siloed discipline. Sitting squarely at the intersection of technology, data, and creativity, email marketers are primed to lead the new era of customer engagement and drive true cross-channel marketing.

    We'll start this interactive discussion by exploring the three core strengths of email marketers that are critical to pioneering this new era, including:
    - strong experience with handling personally identifiable information
    - a keen eye for detail and expectation of operational excellence
    - ability to see the whole conversion path

    Then, we'll dive into how these characteristics are essential in overcoming the three key challenges email marketers now face, including:
    - the increasing difficulty to identify, reach, and engage new visitors
    - the inevitable issue of email fatigue
    - the new normal of a non-linear customer journey, due in large part to anonymous research

    We hope you'll join us on Dec. 15th.

    There's no point in acquiring users if you're not going to engage them.

    By the end of this year, brands and publishers will have spent $70 billion on mobile ads. The inevitable result? The cost of mobile user acquisition is skyrocketing, hitting the high $3 and $4 range this year on average, but jumping to easily $15 to $20 for apps in hot, lucrative spaces.

    That’s why we’re saying user engagement is the new user acquisition.

    Almost 70% of users you acquire do NOT become long-term loyal users, players, or customers. Bringing that number down could halve or massively reduce your average cost of acquisition per user.

    How do you do that?
    What do you do?
    What do you NOT do?
    What results are possible when you engage better?

    There might be no one on the planet who has studied this space as much as VentureBeat's former VP of Research, John Koetsier. He's going to sit down with some chief marketing officers who are leading in the mobile engagement -- and we're also going to talk to the chief marketing officer from Playboy Media, a venerable publishing titan that has been around longer than than many marketers have been alive.

    In this webinar, you'll

    * Hear the mobile strategies that top tier B2C companies are using to engage consumers.
    * Discover the mistakes some marketers make in measuring mobile engagement.
    * Achieve the sweet balance between mobile customer engagement and user acquisition.
    * Get top notch industry survey results from VB Insight's latest mobile report.

  • Marketers, it’s time to fuse your marketing with Emotion Potion. Behavioral and digital data are overflowing these days, yet most marketers are unsure how to turn this abundant information into true insights. While data from loyalty cards, digital clickstreams, and CRM databases tell marketers WHO their audience is and WHAT they are shopping and buying, they can’t fully unlock the WHY behind consumers’ complex behaviors. Emotional forces drive decision-making, and when evoked, emotions forge deep, enduring brand loyalty.

    In this webinar, our panel of thought leaders will lay out the steps to achieving a holistic consumer understanding by integrating attitudinal and emotional data assets with behavioral data sets. By the end, marketers will have the recipe to building brand loyalty through engaging shopper marketing programs.

    Everyone loves free things. How can you not? It’s free! So of course, when it comes to the mobile gaming market, free-to-play games currently rule the roost. But for developers of those free-to-play games who are competing with hundreds like it everyday? It can very tough to see a return. Which is why many mobile developers are turning to in-game advertising to monetize their apps.

    Some free-to-play audiences are more accepting of in-game ads than they are of microtransactions. However, ads that seriously interfere with a user’s experience can turn them off your game for good. And if others are willing to make an in-app purchase, the last thing you want to do is scare them off with ads.

    There are many variables to consider when monetizing your F2P games, especially if you want to avoid having a negative effect on retention and user reviews. It can be hard to strike the right balance.

    In this webinar, DeltaDNA CEO Mark Robinson will be sharing the findings of their recent survey into in-game advertising and chatting with VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi about the state of the gaming industry.

    DeltaDNA questioned game developers about their most successful F2P games, discovering their concerns, thoughts for the future, and advice on best practice. You’ll hear about the strategies that are working, and discover some insider secrets on how to successfully monetize your game without upsetting players.


    In this webinar, you will:

    *Discover the brand-new insights generated from this survey.
    *Find out the strategies that successful games are using to monetize.
    *Learn what games are doing in different genres and with different player types, from indie to major.
    *How to balance and improve player retention, monetization, and game ratings using intelligent player targeting, powered by deep data.

    App publishers can realistically expect a 20% lift in organic downloads via app store optimization, and can in some cases double or even triple their organic downloads.

    * Learn how to position your app on the top of app store lists
    * Help your customers find your hot mobile properties

  • This year is going to be THE year of Instagram marketing. In the last quarter of 2015, Instagram rolled out paid programs for select partners and ad-tech companies.

    In this Marketing Week webinar in association with AdRoll; Alan Fitzgerald, Solutions Specialist EMEA AdRoll, and Sarah Cunningham, Growth Marketing Manager EMEA AdRoll, break down just how businesses can make the most of Instagram from organic, paid, and partner campaigns.

  • Can one word, picture, or extra icon make a difference in a brand's engagement? Quite simply, the answer is yes.

    Every component of a website or mobile app potentially can attract or repel the intended audience. From the headline's wording, color, and font size, to the use of photograph or video, and number of call-to-action buttons, too much or too little of a good thing may counter a brand's intentions.

    Marketers typically measure interactions: The number of times users watch and share a video, download a whitepaper, or tweet a link are only some of the many performance variables. Even when the figures are satisfying, conversion rate optimization asks "what if." By leveraging conversion rate optimization (CRO) tools, brands report tremendous gains in downloads, open rates, and overall engagement.

    Discover how your brand can benefit from CRO by attending this VentureBeat webinar, where the CMO of Columbia Sportswear, Stuart Redsun will join VB Insight's own Stewart Rogers to talk about his experiences and results with conversion rate optimization.

    In this half hour exec roundtable, you'll:


    * Learn best tactics – such as A/B split tests, website heat mapping, mobile, and performance tracking
    * Get a walk through the best and worst tools on the market today based on Stewart Roger's own VB Insight Conversion Optimization report
    * Understand the impact CRO can have on your brand

  • If you're like most marketers, your marketing cloud probably looks more like a Google spreadsheet. And that's a shame. Marketing clouds offer feature-rich platforms to deliver a complex and fully fleshed out marketing team experience. Essentially, they do the heavy lifting for you. But marketing clouds are pretty new -- and we're not seeing a huge penetration right now, partially due to a layer of complexity that could be off-putting to some. But the marketing cloud landscape is changing -- and if you're clever, you'll want to get in on the ground floor.

    Marketing clouds encompass smart emails and SMS messaging; social targeting; integrated call center and customer relationship management (CRM) support; data-supported marketing; smart apps, and more. Because they incorporate all data an organization knows about each customer, these cloud-based solutions empower marketing to be more efficient, engaged, and effective. While cloud solutions can be complex, time-consuming, and costly to implement, they are a good investment, according to about two-thirds of executives VentureBeat surveyed for its report, "Marketing Clouds: How the best companies are winning via the best technology." In this webinar, VentureBeat Research Analyst will discuss the hurdles and benefits of marketing clouds, most useful features, and cloud's impact on marketing initiatives.

    When you leave, you'll know:

    * What makes up a marketing cloud and why it may be right for your organization
    * The five different types of marketing cloud
    * VentureBeat's best marketing cloud software bets for SMBs, enterprises, and startups
    * The ROI marketers can expect from their implementation
    * How to improve adoption by encouraging user adoption

    Panelists:
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat
