      How do you get the best mobile users? That's a question thousands of app publishers ask themselves daily. We have the answer.

      If you build the best app in the world, it's going to be wasted if no one ever finds it. But there is a virtual sea of mobile apps out there, each clamoring for the attention of those top users -- the ones with the great attention spans or the deepest pockets. Most consumers will only tolerate so many apps on their phone -- that means yours has to really count. Mobile ad spending doubled last year and top apps are spending anywhere from $4 to $30 per user for fresh users.

      VB Insight took a hard look at mobile user acquisition -- the major players, the best strategies and the top user acquisition companies. We surveyed 731 mobile developers with over a billion users among them. We also studied data summarizing the results of almost 14 billion mobile ads, and talked to leading user acquisition experts. And now John Koetsier is going to give a first look at the data -- for free. We'll also talk to two experts in the field of mobile user acquisition and get their real world take on a very tempestuous arena. Your mobile strategy can't afford to wait another day -- don't miss this vital information and free interactive web roundtable.

      This webinar will be based on John Koetsier’s VB Insight report "Mobile User Acquisition: How top publishers get the best users for less money", which was published Sept 10, 2015. This is independent analysis and vendors did not have any influence on the outcome of this report.

    • Attracting Top Talent: Why the candidate experience does matter Attracting Top Talent: Why the candidate experience does matter Mitzi Jordan, Global Leader for Talent Acquisition Advisory at Futurestep Recorded: Jun 24 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • There is no better marketing for your organization than a good candidate experience. It reinforces positive perceptions of your business, as well as setting the stage for high levels of employee engagement and performance.

      Meanwhile, a bad candidate experience can be more than a missed opportunity to engage new employees. It can also severely reduce a company’s ability to hire quality talent in the long term – and, because each candidate is also a potential customer, a bad experience can even hit the bottom line.

      Please join Futurestep as we discuss how the right talent acquisition strategy and process can significantly enhance a company’s competitive advantage.

      During the webinar, we will explore:
      • The impact on your overall brand of key candidate interactions, all the way from attraction to retention
      • How to develop a better understanding of candidate touch-points
      • Some of the innovate strategies developed to collect candidate perceptions and manage the total candidate experience

    • Proceed With Caution: State and Local Tax Issues Affecting Mergers & Acquisition Proceed With Caution: State and Local Tax Issues Affecting Mergers & Acquisition George Kyroudis, Director – M&A Tax, Myron Vansickel, Director – State and Local Tax Recorded: Mar 6 2013 4:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • Multistate businesses face increasing financial burdens and a web
      of conflicting rules and complex tax issues – not only because of
      the sheer number of taxing jurisdictions, but also because state
      and local tax rules are not consistent from one jurisdiction to another.
      This complexity is further magnified for a multijurisdictional business
      involved in a merger/acquisition transaction.

      Whether it’s an acquisition, disposition, spinoff, or reorganization, the
      implication of all relevant state and local tax laws must be accounted
      as early in the transaction process for either the acquirer or the target.
      Sloppy planning or insufficient consideration to state tax implications
      of such transactions could result in significant state and local tax
      consequences, including lost or severely reduced ability to: 1) attain
      tax efficiency; 2) utilize favorable tax attributes; or 3) qualify for tax
      exemptions. Companies considering any M&A transaction cannot
      afford to ignore the state tax opportunities and implications.

      After participating in this webinar, you should be able to:
      • Develop a due diligence plan to identify and evaluate tax risk
      and the potential tax impact of a M&A business transaction
      • Determine the unique issues in a transaction itself and transaction
      structuring to mitigate state and local tax consequences
      • Apply the best method to integrate the acquired business to ensure
      compliance with state and local laws after the transaction occurs
      • Describe the critical tax developments and issues governing
      state and local M&A transactions in the context of income tax,
      sales/use tax and other indirect taxation considerations

    • Mobile user engagement is the new user acquisition Mobile user engagement is the new user acquisition John Koetsier, TUNE; Robin Zucker, Playboy Media; Jason Allen, GameStop Recorded: Dec 10 2015 8:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • Sponsored by TUNE

      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.

    • Where to Fish: Optimization of Your Talent Acquisition Strategy Where to Fish: Optimization of Your Talent Acquisition Strategy Jim McCoy, VP of Sales Recruitment Process Outsourcing and Kelly Kliebhan, Practice Leader, Borderless Talent Resourcing Recorded: May 31 2012 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • More than ever before, the ability to tap the potential of people is becoming every organization’s key competitive advantage. At the same time, many organizations are finding it more difficult to attract the kind of talent they need, where and when they need it most. In this talent-driven era, companies also need to do business more flexibly on an increasingly global scale. Talent is the new “It,” and the race for talent is leading organizations to expand their talent acquisition horizons, from exploring opportunities for a virtual workforce to those in borderless talent solutions.

      In ManpowerGroup’s 2011 Borderless Workforce Survey of more than 25,000 employers from 39 countries and territories, about one-quarter of those surveyed said they’ve been looking outside their borders to find talent and solve their skills shortages. With increasing demands for niche skills in companies around the world, people are also becoming more mobile, willing to relocate to take advantage of new opportunities. Determining how to strategically migrate in-demand talent within and across countries is a growing business need – and those organizations that realize the importance of mobilizing their workforce will win in the Human Age.

    • Emerging Trends in Merger & Acquisition Disputes Emerging Trends in Merger & Acquisition Disputes Jim Smith, Jeff Litvak, Jeremy McGannon Recorded: Nov 7 2014 6:00 pm UTC 103 mins
    • The economy is progressively improving and M&A activity is beginning to show signs of improvement. The courts have focused on numerous challenges for valuation experts in M&A transactions. Some involve a failure to close a transaction, but many are over claims of fraud, misrepresentation or breach of warranties or covenants after a transaction has closed. In these types of disputes, the most important question is whether a party will be entitled to seek damages and, if so, the manner in which the damages are to be measured. After the dust settles, however, other questions arise, including: how did we get here and how can we prevent this in the future?

      The session will provide insight into emerging trends in mergers and acquisitions following the economic downturn as well as observations and insights into the types of disputes that have emerged in this economy. In this context, the session will provide background on the legal and transactional issues that must be considered during negotiations, drafting of the transactional documents, closing and beyond and an overview of the various legal, accounting, and valuation aspects of disputes over misrepresentations, breaches, earnouts and post-closing adjustments
