  • Orchestrating Optimal Interactions Orchestrating Optimal Interactions Mary Anne Hensley, CMO Council; Brandon Purcell, Forrester Research; Buck Webb, RedPoint Global Recorded: Jan 26 2017 63 mins
    Most organizations are unable to deliver their brand promise in a consistent manner. Many marketers strive—but struggle—to present high contextual relevance across all channels and touchpoints that span everything from marketing to sales and service. Fragmented engagement systems create data silos that make it difficult to leverage all data sources in real-time to deliver the hyper-personalized experiences that customers expect today.

    Solving this problem requires a customer data platform that provides key foundational elements, including:
    1. A unified view of customers that is continually updated over time
    2. The ability to leverage this unified view in combination with in-line analytics to intelligently orchestrate interactions in real time across all channels and touchpoints.

    Join the CMO Council, in partnership with RedPoint, for a one-hour, interactive webcast featuring an expert panel of experience and data experts, including special guest Brandon Purcell, Senior Analyst–Customer Insights Professionals from Forrester Research. Through the course of this webcast, senior marketers will hear how unifying and activating data through a customer data platform enables organizations to better engage with consumers/customers while optimizing marketing campaign performance, building brand affinity and increasing customer lifetime valuation.

  • 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 Recorded: Dec 13 2016 57 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

  • The new marketing reality: how organisations can capitalise on opportunities The new marketing reality: how organisations can capitalise on opportunities Jeremy Waite (EMEA Marketing Evangelist, IBM), Jim Clark (Research Director, Econsultancy) Recorded: Dec 8 2016 60 mins
    This webinar will highlight results from Econsultancy’s New Marketing Reality report in partnership with IBM.

    The traditional funnel no longer works. It assumes audiences are linear and predictable in their behaviour. At the same time, it doesn’t take into account the fact that people will act the way they want to act, rather than sticking to a sequence designed by marketers.
    Despite this being the perceived wisdom among practitioners, organisations still spend billions creating awareness to acquire new customers. What they should be doing is spending this on keeping existing customers happy by providing a superior customer experience.
    This webinar will seek to explore why organisations are failing to take into account this new marketing reality. In doing so, it will underline the challenges marketers face when trying to get a joined-up view of the customer and the opportunities that can be had from unlocking the value of customer data.

    As part of this, the webinar will address some of the following points:

    · What role does first-party data play in marketer’s strategies, and what facts are preventing organisations from making better use of their customer data?
    · How effectively are organisations joining the dots when it comes to linking their understanding of consumer journeys from online to offline? What sources of data are they using?
    · How do organisations rate the importance of understanding the customer journey and for more progressive marketers, what have been the business benefits of this understanding?
    · What’s driving this overall strategy – are organisations using this intelligence of the customer to drive business-focussed outcomes or measure the performance of individual campaigns?
    · What new technologies are practitioners using to make sense of audiences, from marketing automation to AI and intelligent algorithms?

  • Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base Push notifications that work: 6 tips for building a devoted user base Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat May 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A push notification is a tricky kind of social engagement: it can be a tap on the shoulder, a punch in the face, or water torture. In other words, it can be tremendously successful at driving commerce and engagement, or it could piss your customer off so badly they'll go rip you a new one on Twitter. And we've seen how well that works out for brands.

    At the very least, every misstep reduces open rates, strikes a blow against retention and destroys engagement. You want to know how to not be the boor at a cocktail party, because push notifications, one of the most powerful and immediate engagement tools in your arsenal (when you do it right) can garner 2770% higher conversion rates.
