    • Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture?
      Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture? Shreesha Ramdas | CEO at STRIKEDECK Upcoming: Dec 18 2018 10:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Customer success isn't just about a title, department, or jumping into an account manager role. It is a lifestyle. It should flow through the veins, and ooze out every pore. From the external, it appears that it comes from jumping on top of tasks and engaging with customers, but true CSM's feed their entire lives not just into their assigned customers or company customers, but every customer that they have an interaction with. This includes walking into Starbucks and holding the door open for that person behind you, or picking up the paper towels on the floor in the bathroom. Demonstrating that customer success can happen everywhere you go. It can go unappreciated, but this is also where it can catch on. Your co-workers, potential customers, and perhaps even the occasional current customer are watching. The mentality of being there to serve others is a culture shift which can catch people off guard and see the difference as to why they selected you as their vendor. So the next time you visit Starbucks, don't just walk in, but hold the door and give that person a huge high five!

    • From marketing campaigns to insight-driven, contextual customer interactions.
      From marketing campaigns to insight-driven, contextual customer interactions. Brandon Purcell, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research and Steven Noels, Chief Technology Officer at NGDATA Recorded: Nov 29 2018 3:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • With so much data at our fingertips, why are marketing campaigns so much less effective today than ever before, at acquiring and retaining customers? It’s because consumers are more distracted, and they’re being marketed to with little relevancy. In order to stand out, you need to deliver personalized and context-driven interactions with each customer.

      Brands that seize this potential are embracing a Customer-Obsessed Marketing Model around core competencies: mindset, talent, process, and insights. And they are assembling what Forrester calls, Contextual Marketing Engines: brand-specific platforms that exploit customer context to deliver utility and guide the customer into the next best interaction.

      In this webinar, we’ll discuss the Customer-Obsessed Marketing Model and how to build a Contextual Marketing Engine to realize the shift from static product-focused marketing campaigns that target customer segments, to dynamic and contextual customer interactions based on real-time scoring of individual customer data.

      We’ll focus on the capabilities you need to be successful and how a Customer Data Platform can help fill this essential gap in your current marketing stack.

      Join our guest, Brandon Purcell, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, and our own Steven Noels, Chief Technology Officer at NGDATA, for an interactive and informative conversation.

      Key takeaways will include:
      • How can the right marketing strategy, processes, teams and technology enable your brand to make the shift to conversational programs.
      • How brands are currently gaining advantages through contextual marketing.
      • How contextual customer interactions create value for both your brand and your customer, improving long-term business results.

      Maximizing the business benefits of your Inhouse customer data Monica Mullen, Solutions Marketing Manager and Marcus Kästel, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting Recorded: Sep 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 44 mins
    • Competing on customer experience in retail is not just a passing fad – it’s here to stay. Customers expect more, want convenience, and they change quickly. Retailers have responded by introducing new channels, services, and personalized marketing promotions to capture customers’ attention and wallet share. What does it take to really take to engage with customers?  The answer is hidden in your data. According to Forbes, 80% of data is dark and untouched - meaning it’s never actually used to make improvements or changes deemed necessary by the customer.
      In this discussion you’ll learn what is possible as we review how you can create a trusted 360-degree view of your customer and put the customer truly at the center of your operations.  We’ll review how retailers of all types are delivering a customer experience that sets them apart from other brands to drive consumer loyalty.  And we’ll share the best practices and use cases retailers have adopted to get to know their customers better by unleashing the disruptive power of their data.
