Customer engagement is an important part of managing a successful business, organization and/or marketing campaign. Simply selling products or services does not attract and retain loyal customers. To truly build lasting business relationships and connect with customers, you'll have to make an ongoing effort. Customer engagement marketing is not a one-and-done process, nor is it a one-size-fits-all approach. In this webinar, you will gain insights into creating a successful customer-first approach.

While 2020 brought us into a new decade, it also introduced us to an unfamiliar world of “social distancing.” Life has changed and this collective shift in behavior and practices has been coined the “new normal” as businesses and individuals alike pivot to adjust to the current circumstances.
While this shift has proven difficult, it’s not all bad news — many have found ways to adapt and innovate during this time. One such area of innovation is virtual events and conferences. Join us as we dive into how virtual events are evolving and where we have the greatest opportunity to shine.
Virtual events have shown us how much more efficient hosting a large-scale event can be. Is this trend here to stay and are in-person events really on the brink of extinction? Watch as we debate this highly relevant topic area to determine the future of events as we have known it.

Do you follow all the best practices for email creation and still not get the response you want? That's because today there's more to success than targeted lists, compelling offers, and perfectly executed creative.
Today you need to know the decision-making shortcuts people use with email – the automatic behaviors that determine whether they open, read, and respond to it. Behavioral science research has proven people don't operate in rational, considered ways. Rather, readers cruise along on autopilot, with certain prompts sending us clicking in one direction or another.
In this example-jammed session, discover scientifically proven tactics that will get your target to open, read, and respond to your email without even thinking about it!
• Two ways to position your message for faster response
• How to turn a small "yes" into a big win
• When "negative" messages can have positive effects
• Why you'll sell more using Social Proof
• The journalists' secret that boosts email readership

Everyone in business aspires at engaging others at some point, internally or externally. In fact, engagement is so widely addressed that it’s becoming a big word that often means very little. So let’s define it meaningfully, by using science. What does it really take for the brain to be engaged?
An intriguing approach to understanding engagement is to view it from the angle of its absence. So what do we know about the psychology of boredom? Is it possible for the brain to be bored in the age of overstimulation? The answer is yes. As scientists, we used to believe that boredom was defined by the absence of stimulation. Now we are discovering that too much stimulation can have a similar effect. So how do we prevent the brain from getting bored – therefore staying engaged with your message and your cause? The good news is that the brain does not want to stay bored for too long. From an evolutionary point, we cannot afford to stay bored. This keynote offers three evidence-based, practical guidelines, which you can use immediately to create meaningful engagement for your internal and external audiences.

The friction between marketing and sales is real. A recent survey found nearly half of B2B marketers said their sales team doesn’t understand what is important to the marketing team, and 31% of B2B salespeople said their marketing team doesn't understand what’s important to the sales team.
Although sales and marketing serve different functions, it’s when they work together that companies see substantial improvement on important performance metrics: sales cycles are shorter, market entry costs decrease, and the cost of sales is lower. So how can these two teams stop battling and work better together?
Join Michael Collins CMO and Managing Director of CFA Institute for a fireside chat to understand how removing friction in favor of collaboration and staying laser-focused on customer needs and engagement can position for long-term marketing AND sales success.

It’s an age-old argument that sales never appreciates the leads that marketing delivers. There are never enough, and when leads are flowing in, the quality is not good enough. Conversely, marketing feels exhausted because they have done everything possible to deliver the best outcomes. This session will outline 7 ways to improve relationships and overall lead performance.
1. Planning alignment
2. Definitions alignment
3. Performance tracking and alignment on metrics
4. Regular meetings to discuss performance and refinement
5. Persona and buyers journey alignment
6. Messaging alignment
7. Respect each other as professionals in our trade
• Best practices for collaboration
• Concepts to factor into performance tracking
• A few deep breathing techniques in case all else fails

The more you exploit the symbiotic nature of the relationship between marketing and sales, the more streamlined both organizations will be.
In this webcast we will visit what premium research tells us about the state of sales and marketing alignment. We will recast that thinking. We will think beyond alignment to symbiosis - the relationship or “living together” of two dissimilar organizations. Are marketing and sales so dissimilar in today’s environment?
This thinking applies to B:B, B:C and B:B:C organizations.
In this interactive webcast, we will exchange ideas about strategic and very tactical steps that marketing and sales can take together to
• Streamline processes
• Improve CX
• Reduce time to close
• Increase profitable organic growth.
