  • How to Grow Your Startup and Scale Your Product Using Rigorous Research Jun 17 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Robert J. Lewis, Ph.D.
    A broad overview of basic research methods accessible to product-based businesses of all sizes. The discussion focuses on the most common and useful qualitative and quantitative research methods, and how to overcome each technique's individual disadvantages.

    Participants will learn:

    - How to define their business problem better, and choose the right method(s) to solve it.

    - How to practically implement several very useful methods without the need for proprietary software.

    - How to leverage the data they already have to find insightful patterns.

    - Which methods are out there. Business leaders often do not realize there is a method that has been built specifically for their class of problem.
    Having a broad understanding of the types of techniques that are out there (*and what they are for*) can be 90% of the battle.

    About the speaker:

    Robert J. Lewis, Ph.D. is a quantitative social scientist and software developer. His academic work in media psychology and entertainment has garnered more than 700 citations in his discipline. He has worked with multiple clients on various types of research problems, including Whatsmywine.com, Summery.ai, Crux Climbing Gym, and Rhu Collective.  Additionally, he taught analytics and research methods to advertising students for seven years at The University of Texas at Austin.

  • Marketing’s Digital Divide: It’s Just Marketing Recorded: Feb 12 2020 33 mins
    Marianne S. Hewitt, Marketing Strategy and Technology Leader, The Growth Strategy Group

  • Content that Connects: Accelerating Demand with C-Suite Content Recorded: Feb 12 2020 61 mins
    Rob Leavitt, SVP, Consulting, ITSMA & Leslie Cozatt, Sr. Director, Integrated Marketing, C-Suite Audience Engagement, Optum
    Absent compelling content, the most carefully designed campaigns fall flat. The challenge, of course, is that our customers and prospects are inundated with content and tune out all but the most timely and relevant material. And the C-suite audiences we all want to engage are the toughest of all.

    Marketers obsess over the newest tools and channels (TikTok, anyone?) but what we say is at least as important as how we say it. Yes, we’re all moving to more video and interactive (as well as back to direct mail), but how can we ensure that the core of our campaigns is substantive content that our audiences actually care about?

    Crafting compelling content, especially for executive-level audiences, is no simple task. Join ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt and Optum’s Leslie Cozatt to explore what the most skeptical buyers are looking for and how the most successful marketers are developing and using C-suite thought leadership content to accelerate demand in the most challenging markets.
  • Great Campaigns Don’t Chase: Demand Generation Starts with Knowing Your Audience Recorded: Feb 12 2020 36 mins
    Keith Johnstone & Dennis Le, Contrast Digital Marketing
    Simplify your demand generation process by breaking it down and focusing on the components that matter most. Dividing the process into 4 steps, you can create an effective demand generation strategy that will drive interested leads into your sales team's open arms.

    · Gather insights

    o Consider how and where your audience spends their time to identify what their interests, needs, or parallel pain points they may suffer from are

    · Demonstrate value

    o Create compelling content that attracts them to you and demonstrates value – something that will make your audience say thank you

    · Set the bait

    o Lastly, use your content and leverage targeted marketing channels to drive leads to you

  • Why influencer marketing deserves its place in today’s marketing mix Recorded: Feb 12 2020 33 mins
    Jeanette Okwu, Co - Founder & CMO, 1nfluencersmarketing
    The increasing role of digital and big data technologies in advertising has disrupted traditional ad agency business models. As advertisers consider how to confront these new challenges, a myriad of technology platforms can offer a variety of Ad/MarTech solutions.

    Approaches like content marketing, reviews & recommendations, and social or influencer marketing are all considered viable ways to drive impact. But as advertising continues to decline, it’s Influencer marketing ($10BN industry in 2020) that has shown the greatest potential to reverse the trend of ad-fatigue, use of ad-blocker technology, and changing consumer behaviours of the new digital and mobile-only generation.

    Take one look at the media landscape, and the bold new pioneer on the horizon is Influencer Marketing. But while it’s blazing new trails as the newest, boldest player in the advertising scene, it is often grossly misunderstood. Some point to its revolutionary successes. Others criticise its ineffectiveness. Leaving many with the perception that Influencer Marketing is simply a gleaming, glossy riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Real observers know the truth: this pioneer has proven to be the only marketing discipline that delivers tangible consistent results for brands. And yet significant knowledge gaps on both the brand and creator sides keep the misconceptions alive.

    Partnering with influencers is already familiar to us, but the market is undergoing constant change: Brands must continually evolve their strategies accordingly. The space is rapidly expanding as influencer types have proliferated and consequently fill every conceivable niche and sub-niche interest.

    Each of these types offers distinct benefits and trade-offs for brands. But how to create a meaningful scalable program that folds into the entire marketing stack?

    Here’s how: with date, insights, and a human touch.
  • What’s next in B2B Marketing: Looking beyond Inbound and ABM Recorded: Feb 12 2020 40 mins
    Karthik Nair, Director of Demand Generation, JOOR
    For every B2B marketer who ever wondered 'why should B2C marketers have all the fun?', the 2010’s had all the answers. We got to learn frameworks such as inbound, ABM, conversational marketing, talk triggers and had access to technologies that helped us achieve those goals.

    So, what’s next? Evoking strong emotions among your users/prospects for your product is the future for B2B companies, and the Product Led Growth (PLG) framework, combined with building communities is how you get there. Marketers should look at adopting specific elements of PLG’s framework whether you sell to SMBs, Mid-market or Enterprise businesses. PLG will soon become a basic expectation, like Inbound became a few years ago.

    At the heart of PLG is the approach of giving users the ability to easily experience the product before the paywall and equip them to appreciate the value in the trial period or trial version. While companies have begun finding their stride with successful sales-marketing alignment, the stakes how now increased, the future is going to be about sales-marketing-product alignment.

    Join this session for:

    1. A quick introduction to PLG and how it will take you further along in the journey to higher personalization and higher organizational alignment

    2. An approach to generating demand with traditional approaches, with some creative nuances, as you set yourself up for PLG

    3. Build alignment with technology/product teams to structure data to move to PLG

    4. A guide to building ‘tribes’ by connecting audiences with each other and with your company around theme of the problem you are solving for them

    5. A recommended approach to structuring your team

    6. Metrics you should track to measure performance
