Driving Leads to Profitable Conversations

Architecting today’s customer journey is a top priority for senior marketing leaders, who must guide the customer through the path to purchase and craft experiences across a multitude of channels and devices, all while keeping sight of the ultimate goal: guiding a customer through to conversion. But there is a channel that often goes unrecognized and unsupported in this new digital age: the phone call.

According to a recent BIA/Kelsey report, “call commerce” is a $1 trillion influence engine as analysts estimate that click to call influences some $1 trillion in U.S. consumer spending. The firm went on to project that some “169 billion mobile calls to businesses (will be made) by 2020, driven by smartphone penetration, high commercial intent and the natural handoff between mobile engagement and phone calls.”

The digital experience has brought rise to an influential channel of profit in the phone call that must not be overlooked. As customer satisfaction is measured in quick clicks and frictionless engagements, tools like the Google call button have made it even easier for brands to actively connect digital experiences to profitable inbound calls. This call commerce demands a new set of strategies, campaigns and executions, in addition to new measures and metrics to better track these online to offline conversations.

    As organizations look to set bold goals for the future, many will turn to people, platforms and processes to power their journey forward. But what are the big trends in data and analytics, technology and computing that will directly impact how we work, how we secure and how we advance organizations to a better tomorrow? From shifts in data management, analytics and security to new thinking in how to orchestrate digital transformation and activation, the future holds endless opportunities for those who can navigate it effectively.
  • Are We Prepared to Achieve Digital Transformation? Recorded: Mar 28 2019 64 mins
    Liz Miller-CMO Council, Stew Maurer-Convercent, Brandon Ebken-Insight, Alvin Lu-HashiCorp, Jen Mills-Microsoft
    Digital transformation is, for most executives and organizations, top of mind as we look to shift our people, processes and platforms to a more connected, efficient and effective ecosystem. For many brands, the reality is that transformation has not come at the behest of an internal quest for innovation but rather to keep up with a connected customer making new choices based on experiences and value delivery.

    But the quest for transformation has been rife with buzzwords, failed promises and more than a few platform investments that have only partially yielded results. Teams continue to be hampered by fractured operations and limited access to customer intelligence, and there is growing frustration that transformation initiatives may prove to be never-ending with no real payoff in sight.

    The call to action for business leaders focused on growth is to shake off the missteps of past transformation programs and embrace new strategies that empower employees to act. This also means entrusting teams with intelligence and insight into the customer, and better connect and align teams and partners across the customer engagement lifecycle, in order to deploy truly relevant and meaningful experiences. These experiences, according to today’s customer, must be personalized, relevant and must not violate the customer’s trust that the data they have provided the brands they love has not been misused or mismanaged.
  • Activating Voice for Experience Velocity Recorded: Oct 18 2018 61 mins
    Liz Miller, Stephanie Genin
    Marketers are listening for the voice of the customer. According to early findings of a study from the CMO Council in partnership with SAP Customer Experience and Hootsuite, over 60 percent of the marketers based in Europe have formal customer listening initiatives in place.

    Unfortunately, only eight percent of European marketers believe these programs are “excellent”, with most marketers admitting that their listening programs are just “fairly good”, listening through corporate owned formal feedback channels, but struggling to ingest unstructured intelligence from across the organization.

    Part of the issue could be how organizations view critical listening posts. With early indicators pointing to marketers primarily viewing channels like social media as either free engagement tools or PR amplification channels, it is not a surprise that many marketing leaders are looking to tackle the issue of leveraging intelligence from customer voice to better deliver consistent, contextual and personalized experiences. The big question becomes how.
  • Tuning in to Context: Achieving Quality, Consistency and Transparency in Digital Recorded: Jul 10 2018 52 mins
    Mary Anne Hensley, CMO Council ; Mike Olson, Fox Rent-a-Car
    For obvious reasons, video represents an unprecedented level of opportunity for companies looking to amplify their digital engagement efforts. However, many companies still lack a formalized strategy for implementing video, and worse, the metrics currently being used to gauge the success of video are questionable, at best. Many organizations are still applying the same metrics for online video that they use for TV advertising, and with Facebook and Google both admitting to flawed, incomplete and often incorrect reporting structures for video campaign outcomes, it is becoming more important than ever for marketers to establish reliable strategies and metrics for video performance.

    With the level of opportunity that video presents, how can marketers ensure that they are getting the biggest bang for their video investments? What metrics truly matter when it comes to understanding video campaign success, and how can marketers achieve the contextual consistency they need to really understand how their videos are performing?

    To address these issues, the CMO Council will be hosting a webinar to explore the greatest barriers to success when it comes to implementing video campaigns that deliver the intended results, in addition to the metrics needed to gain full transparency into video performance to understand who is viewing videos—as well as when and where they are being viewed—and determine their impact on the bottom line.

    The webinar will be on July 10 at 10am PST/1pm EST, and presented by Mary Anne Hensley, Director of Content and Marketing Programs here at the CMO Council; Ben Segal with Vuble, and Mike Olson with Fox Rent-a-Car.
