  • Empowering business users with self-service analytics and data visualization Sep 14 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ina Yulo, Tom Berthon (Senior Product Owner, Growth team), Kathryn Birch (Customer Success Manager), BrightTALK
    Data is everywhere, but unfortunately, most business users don't have the time to sort through a bunch of stats. They just want to see the bigger picture--so why not give it to them?

    Self-service analytics has enabled business users to access and interpret data without needing any statistics background. When coupled with data visualization techniques, we've seen that not only are business users more encouraged to make more data-driven decisions, but they are also able to do this without needing help from their BI or IT teams.

    Join this session where we will discuss:
    -How to encourage people from all different teams to embrace self-service analytics
    -Why data visualization plays a huge role in the success of a data-driven culture
    -Top things to take note of when creating dashboards that can easily communicate and add value
    -How to teach users to get the most from their data and generate actionable insights

  • Actionable Takeaways to Nurture Prospects throughout the Buyer’s Journey Recorded: Jun 15 2016 34 mins
    Rob Arnold, Principal Analyst, Connected Work at Frost & Sullivan and Dallas Jessup, Content Marketing Manager at BrightTALK
    It can be difficult to get noticed among the over-abundance of content continuously marketed to B2B buyers. The best way to maximize your exposure and connect with your buyers is to offer easily discoverable, on-demand access to the most relevant resources. However, simply reaching prospects does not ensure they will successfully become a customer. Modern buyers are self-educating on purchase decisions at every stage of the sales funnel and have specific expectations throughout their journey (and career level).

    In this presentation Frost & Sullivan and BrightTALK will discuss:
    - Keeping prospects engaged throughout the buying cycle
    - The types of content prospects want in different stages
    - How prospects interact with relevant content

    Creating a dynamic, robust community is a critical task for today’s marketers. Your community needs to cultivate a collaborative, inclusive approach that delivers real value, thought leadership, and a platform for commentary and connections. One of the best ways for marketers to build their brand and drive loyalty is to give customers a place to go for information, best-practices advice, analysis, news, and peer interaction.

    However, creating a community is not the same as nurturing one. Marketers must understand what works—and what doesn’t—when it comes to bringing people to the site, again and again. Join us for this data-driven webinar to discuss what over 1,000 BrightTALK members had to say about what they’re looking for when they’re researching and participating in online events.
