    • Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Jun 9 2016 9:30 am UTC 40 mins
    • Retailers face intense competition for a decreasing share of the customer's wallet and the challenges are even more acute in markets that are deflationary. Promotions now play an increasingly important role in growing sales but an excessive dependence on deep and broader discounts and promotions can damage not only the bottom line but also the brand.

      What Will You Learn?
      In this webinar, we highlight some of the trends that are driving the increased use of promotions and discounts in retailing. We explain how information technology can help retailers develop "smarter" promotional and discount strategies. These seek to influence customer behavior and boost loyalty instead of simply generating a short-lived sales boost or clearing inventories.

      Who Should Attend?
      Roles with business responsibility in business processes in the Retail industry, for instance, Marketers, Store Managers, CIOs, CMOs, Merchandise Managers, etc.

Investors will also talk through where they use investment trusts and where open-ended funds might be more appropriate.

    • Miss this webinar at your peril! On the eve of the 5th anniversary of the Bribery Act entering into force we have now seen significant enforcement activity in the UK and the UK corporate crime regime is on the cusp of the biggest change in its history that will impact on every business with far reaching consequences for business.

      In this webinar we shall look back over the last 12 months and forecast where we see developments in the year to come. We shall discuss:

      1. Our take on the developments over the last twelve months, including the first DPA, corporate prosecution under the Bribery Act and use of the new sentencing guidelines.
      2. What's next:
      · What do the biggest alleged bribery scandal of all time and the Panama Papers have in common?
      · DPA's v. Prosecution. With no discount for a DPA, what is the point?
      · Changing the UK's AML regime: the other side of the Bribery Act coin & big changes are planned
      · The London May Anti-corruption summit and the proposed biggest change to UK corporate criminal law, ever…which will eclipse the impact of the Bribery Act.

      And you have our personal guarantees, that we won’t discuss Brexit and what that might mean for bribery and corporate crime. At all.

      Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Vivian Robinson QC, former general counsel to the UK’s Serious Fraud Office and now a partner in McGuireWoods London; Barry Vitou, partner in Pinsent Masons LLP’s London office; Richard Kovalevsky QC, 2 Bedford Row; and Julian Glass, Managing Director, FTI Consulting, as they answer your questions and address these key topics.

      A complete report on the current state of cost, payback and return within marketing technology.

      In this edition of the State of Marketing Technology, we look at the total cost of ownership across the most popular martech categories and show the ROI attributable to each of them.

      Which categories and tools provide the biggest return, and which are a waste of money?

      Which are the most expensive to own?

      Which tools might be best suited to your size of organization, and which should you discount from your selection criteria?

      And how do ROI levels change during different stages of marketing and sales?

      We also look at different approaches to marketing technology management, including insights on the shift from on-premise to cloud-based solutions, and uncover the reality of how many marketing technology projects fail to return on their investment.

    • Ninety-six percent of the world’s consumers do not live in the United States. This important fact is not lost upon American business executives, especially those looking for new ways to increase corporate revenues. That’s why many US firms have their sights set on emerging international markets. They’re developing partnerships and setting up shop in nations around the globe. It’s an exciting time. The opportunities are many.

      But, in a global economy, getting the right content to the right people at the right time in the right format and language can be challenging. It takes hard work — and a global view — to do it right.

      Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 10:30am PT for a free, one-hour web presentation for content marketers seeking to understand the role of translation and localization in a global marketplace. Three knowledgable international content experts — Kit Brown-Hoekstra, Diana Ballard, and Peter Argondizzo — will work together to demystify the role of content in a mobile, global world of business. You’ll learn what you can do to ensure your content works for the largest number of people possible, regardless of where they live or what languages they speak. And, you’ll learn why the way of the rules we were taught about content may actually prevent us from communicating effectively across cultural and language barriers.

      Bring your questions. This is going to be a great opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best and brightest on the subject.

      Attendees will receive a discount code for Content Marketing World 2014, September 8-11 in Cleveland, Ohio, The event is the largest of its kind and this year features an entire track dedicated to global content strategy issues for content marketers.

    • (DK) Churn analysis and Loyalty (DK) Churn analysis and Loyalty Henrik Hammer Recorded: Mar 11 2014 8:00 am UTC 43 mins
    • (The webinar will be hosted in Danish)
      Many companies run loyalty programs for their customers. Customers in the programs receive discounts and special offers in return for doing business with you. In Denmark the amount of loyalty programs has seen a significant increase – resulting in a highly competitive market. Customers are churning from the programs. The cross sell and up sell revenue from these programs are declining – while the cost for aintaining the programs is increasing. Often customers develop a fatique an immunity to marketing initiatives in the program because they are treated with a one-size fit all message.

      We can improve all of the above by intelligently looking at the cross sell and churn
      patterns of your customer base. This allow us to focus retention efforts on customers
      with a high Customer Life Time Value and a high propensity to churn.
