Rethinking Centricity: Moving Past Products and Focusing on Engagement

Shaun Randall (Rogers Communications), Ben Salmon (Pitney Bowes), and Liz Miller (CMO Council)
Given the heightened expectations from customers for flawless experiences, and the heightened expectations from management to optimize revenues, marketers are being challenged to enhance the overall customer experience by moving away from the traditional product-centric marketing model. Customer-centricity has become the new mantra for marketers looking to leverage the deep insights and intelligence that can be mined from customer data. The challenge is how to shift from looking at campaigns and instead looking at customer dialogs and engagements.

Focusing on the customer and harnessing analytics to fuel initiatives that retain and acquire customers, C-level marketers are earning a place in the board-level bottom line conversation. In addition, true collaboration between sales, marketing and customer service departments can pave the way for a customer experience that truly caters to the customer.

The third in an ongoing dialog, this webinar will explore how data, analytics, segmentation and strategy can come together to create a superior customer experience that generates advocacy and propels brands. The CMO Council has invited speakers who will share how to make marketing, on all levels, customer-centric. Some of the key issues our speakers will focus on include:

- Best ways to gain a holistic view of the customer
- How to measure customers in terms of lifetime value propositions and thereby measure marketing performance
- Bringing sales, marketing and customer service departments together to most effectively predict churn and produce the best (read: most profitable) customer experience
- Customer relationship marketing strategies to reduce burn and minimize churn

  • Learn how marketers can harness two of the biggest digital trends to optimise content strategy as content marketing comes of age.

    Duncan Clark, Head of Global Research at Netbiscuits, discusses how two mega-trends are creating a wealth of opportunity for marketers to optimise their content.

    Firstly Big Data - the focus on gathering data and insight has brought the importance of understanding customer experience to the forefront.

    Secondly, the phenomenal rise of mobile has completely changed the way in which consumers interact with brands and reshaped their expectations.

    In 2015, these two unstoppable trends will converge to redefine key areas of marketing strategy. Analytics, when applied to key business objectives, empowers marketers to make the right decisions about customer experience and content optimisation. Mobile, meanwhile, enables brands to be more closely and personally engaged with customers than ever before.

    In this webinar, we explore the challenges and opportunities emerging in this new multi-screen world.
  • Event sponsorship can be the biggest purchase a marketer will make. If done well, events provide a unique platform for face-to-face interaction with prospects, which is unrivalled through other marketing programmes.

    However, with a growing focus on ROI, they can also be a costly mistake if not executed correctly.

    In this webinar, Phil Cooper from Closer Still Media will use his experience of organizing one of the largest cloud computing tradeshows in the world, to share success stories and practical tips that will leave you stand full to bursting.

  • Content Marketing has become both mission critical and a large investment. Yet, the reality is most content fails to drive traffic and as a result, downstream engagement and conversions.

  • Going Global The New Reality of Globalization in a Digital Age Mar 18 2015 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    With the economy emerging from recession and businesses looking for new opportunities to reach, engage and attract new and profitable audiences, it is no wonder that talk of “going global” is spreading. According to the CMO Council’s own “State of Marketing” study, 86 percent of senior marketing leaders are looking at global markets thanks to new market sizes and opportunities. And the majority (48 percent) also believe that presenting a strong story via optimized digital channels is the best path to success.

    Despite the opportunities that new global markets present, there are also significant challenges and pitfalls that marketers must avoid to ensure that a relevant, contextual and robust customer experience is actually being delivered in a way these new global audiences understand and value. This is not just a conversation about how to translate a website. In fact, this is often where so many globalization strategies fail. This is a call to turn great digital experiences into globally relevant engagements, regardless of where customers live or what language they speak.

    Join the CMO Council for an in-depth discussion into the new mandates to reach and engage the digital global customer. Experts from Lionbridge, Esri and ISITE will share their perspectives on where and how new strategies must be outlined to address the complexities of staging globally relevant conversations in the new digital world, regardless of whether this new customer is across the ocean or just across the street.

    Some key issues to be discussed in this interactive webcast will include:

    •The new expectations of the global customer—and a call for relevance across all channels
    •The complexities of language, content and engagement
    •The impact of globalization on the bottom line: Are real-time experiences making real advancements in profitability and loyalty?
  • Building a High-Performance Marketing Engine Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 105 mins
    Boosting the Operational Efficiencies and Effectiveness of the Modern Marketing Organization

    It is undeniable that the customer experience is a complex and ever shifting landscape, defined and initiated by the customer and spread across an online and offline landscape that is growing with every decision and journey. But how has this complexity impacted marketing’s operations? How are leading organizations managing everything from budgets, strategies and assets to core resources, tracking strategies, activities and outcomes in this ever expanding and increasingly complex business landscape?

    As marketing continues to focus on delivering exceptional customer experiences that are highly rewarding to the customer—and increasingly profitable for the business— savvy CMOs are looking to improve operational efficiencies to create truly agile and effective business engines.

    Join the CMO Council as we examine this quest for marketing effectiveness and impact, and see what brands and leading experts believe will take us to this next stage of truly effective marketing performance. How are successful teams reshaping how resources and relationships are being managed? How do highly effective organizations align their talent and technology to deliver high-impact customer experiences? How are resources, assets and strategies being tracked, monitored and measured in order to reach key business goals faster? How are highly effective marketing teams thinking about budgeting, planning, asset management and campaign management to meet the needs of the business and advance at the speed of the customer?
  • Map the Gap: Seeing the Weakest Points of your Marketing Foundation Recorded: Dec 11 2014 61 mins
    Marketing technology is at the very core of today’s business strategy. According to a recent CMO Council study, Quantify How You Unify, marketing leaders are facing significant challenges managing the growing sprawl of marketing technology. The study reveals that 42 percent of CMOs who own their marketing technology strategy see greater business impact than those who do not. Moreover, those with a formal strategy contribute more to overall revenue and value creation: Half (50 percent) are able to achieve more targeted, efficient and relevant customer engagements, and 39 percent achieve greater return and accountability of marketing spend.

    While 67 percent of survey respondents believe new marketing technologies are essential or very important to overall marketing group performance and effectiveness, they are being held back by technology overload, too many data sources, and lack of strategic application and integration of disparate point solutions and data.

    So where do we go from here? The growth in the marketing technology space will continue to grow. Marketing technology researcher and expert David Raab, CEO or Raab Associates, estimates that that nearly half of features upgraded by marketing automation vendors in the past year relate to analytics, including customer analysis, content analysis, and lead scoring, firmly placing better analytics at the very top of the technology agenda. But how do marketers know if their foundation has any gaps? Where are duplicative solutions being deployed? And where is the data flowing – or even more importantly, where is the data being clogged – in this tangled stack marketing has built?

    Join the CMO Council as we head from experts in the Marketing Technology space as well as from brand leaders who are taking steps to make sense of the marketing technology stack.
  • The Evolution of Video Recorded: Dec 11 2014 62 mins
    Where are we now, and where are our customers tomorrow?

    According to the CMO Council’s 2014 State of Marketing report, marketers’ investments into online video is taking the next evolutionary leap from experimentation into full-fledged testing. In order words, investments are increasing at a pace like never before. Why? Customers are viewing online video like never before.

    According to a recent report from Neilsen, online video consumption has risen from 13 minutes per day to 27 minutes. While this still pales in comparison to TV consumption, marketers have clearly seen that there is something to online video, and to be late to the game could be a disaster.

    This trend brings with it a slew of obvious questions: What ROI should we expect? What is getting reallocated? Does this mean TV ads should be pulled in favor of online? What content are people really viewing and how will my brand be relevant in that context?

    Join us as the CMO Council delves into a deep dive into online video, asking marketers and industry experts where the key trends, opportunities and pitfalls are when it comes to online video. What are industry leaders investing in…what content are they creating…and how is ROI really being measured?
  • CMO Buzzword Bingo: Demystifying The Biggest Hype-Tastic Phrases of 2014 Recorded: Dec 10 2014 61 mins

Join the CMO Council as we delve into the biggest buzzwords that terrorized brands and marketers throughout 2014…and we predict what the big buzzwords will be that we will try to outrun in 2015. If we were still hung up on buzzwords from 2013, we would be obsessing over gamification and multi-channel…but that’s all SO 2013.

    Now we are dealing with BIG DATA, personalization, and omni-channel experiences. Tomorrow we will obsess over the Internet of EVERYTHING. So, what is the reality behind these big issues? How much of it is hype and how much is really being applied in winning strategies? Where have leading brands learned to steer clear of the hype and maximize opportunity?

    While we have a couple buzzwords in mind, we want to hear from you, so register for the webcast and be sure to tweet out the biggest, buzziest catchall phrase that you have been grappling with this year. Hit up Twitter with #CMOBuzzBingo and we will try and cover as many as we can during our time together.

  • Customer Context: Power Relevant Experiences. Create Brand Advocates. Recorded: Oct 21 2014 61 mins
    Consumers expect relevant experiences and meaningful interactions across all channels and devices. They don’t trust your ads and they are more likely to engage and interact with your brand on other channels. So where are those interactions taking place? And how can you spark engagement to keep them coming back? The key is understanding the customer context.

    Hear from Carlton Doty, Vice President, Forrester Research and Howard Beader, VP Product Marketing, SDL as they explore key strategies based on deep customer insights that drive unprecedented levels of engagement so you can create brand advocates and increase revenue.

    • Why you need a multifaceted approach to truly capture your audience’s attention

  • The Real Customer Journey Recorded: Sep 30 2014 48 mins
    Today’s customer journey does not start and stop at the known touch points of marketing engagement. From word of mouth on social media to the actual last-mile delivery of the product, customers expect that the brands they trust and invest in will be there every step of the way. Yet marketers admit that they have not been highly effective at mapping the totality of the customer experience. According to a report from the CMO Council, some 41 percent of marketers admit they do not have a comprehensive view of customer experience across all customer touchpoints. This begs the question: Have we not tried to map the journey, or are our systems so disconnected and siloed that we can only map what we ourselves create?

    Join the CMO Council as we delve into where and how industry leaders are taking a broad view of the customer experience and journey, as well as how this view and process have impacted the bottom line. How are campaigns managed differently when insights into supply chain are available? Who are the key stakeholders, and how are they aligned to ensure the customer experience is managed from the first conversation through to re-order and advocacy? How are marketing leaders orchestrating this view of the customer journey, and how is that strategy embraced cross-functionally and supported technologically?

    This one-hour interactive webcast will explore the customer journey from the mindset of truly customer-centric organizations, including the critical steps and strategies marketers must take in order to turn customer centricity from catchphrase into profit.
  • The New CMO To-Do List: How Today’s Digital CMOs Are Getting More From Social Recorded: Sep 25 2014 60 mins
    In our first conversation around the new requirements for today’s digital CMO, we learned that CMOs still have work to do specific to building a robust digital marketing and engagement practice.

    In this latest discussion of the to-do list for today’s digital CMO, we will focus on this issue of social preparedness. What has been holding marketing back from truly understanding where and how social can be leveraged? Where can social media impact the advancement of today’s business agenda? How are we using this channel to listen and better understand the customer, from their issues and challenges to their needs and behaviors?

    Join the CMO Council, together with IBM, as we explore these new priorities and the required to-do list for the senior-level marketer. This one-hour webcast will focus on how these industry leaders are shaping their own social strategies, teams and businesses for future success. From achieving a deeper understanding of the customer to creating new channels to loyalty and revenue, our speakers will share their own views on the evolving requirements and new emerging challenges being faced in this age of digital, social and mobile engagement.

  • Manage: Beyond the Bond: Advancing the Alignment Between the CMO and CIO Recorded: Sep 4 2014 70 mins
    Much has been written about the need for partnership and alignment between the CMO and CIO. In the CMO Council’s own investigation into the relationship, we have seen the ebbs and flows of this critical dynamic.

  • The CMO + Technology Connection Recorded: Jul 23 2014 61 mins
    Much has been reported about the new technology buying power of the CMO, and it appears that savvy CMOs have fully embraced the role that technology plays in effectively reaching and engaging their digital customers. But all too often, marketers are buying technology first without clearly thinking through their strategy, goals and processes. According to new research by the CMO Council, only 19 percent of senior marketers believe that their back-office systems and technologies enable their companies to live up to their marketing claims and customer experience promises.

    A new mindset is needed as CMOs become more seasoned marketing technologists. These new mandates will require a more rigorous and strategic approach to technology investment and application.

    Join the CMO Council as we speak with Sheryl Pattek, Vice President and Principal Analyst with Forrester Research, and Tracy Hansen, Chief Marketing Officer of Tealium, as we debate and discuss the role that the CMO needs to play in selecting the best solutions to drive marketing and overall business success.

  • Preparing for and Responding to the Next Heartbleed Recorded: May 29 2014 61 mins
    Was your organization affected by the recent Heartbleed security bug? Open source vulnerabilities on the scale of Heartbleed would seem a rare occurrence, yet over 5000 vulnerabilities are reported against open source components each year. While public resources exist to track these vulnerabilities, mapping them to the open source in use within your organization depends on you knowing what components you are using and where they are being used.

  • A Farewell to Campaigns: The Future of the Customer Experience Recorded: May 15 2014 64 mins
    Marketing has often found itself trapped in a world of silos, with siloed data that is hard to aggregate across the organization, in addition to siloed campaigns and measures split across functional tasks and business units. But savvy marketers keenly understand that customers don’t see or understand the issue of silos. Customers only see one brand and expect a direct, relevant and immediate experience at the time they choose and through the channel they select.

    Join the CMO Council as we bid farewell to the campaign-driven mindset of marketing of the past, and say hello to the new mandates and expectations for the connected customer experience. We will hear about new research from SDL, who surveyed millennials in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 36 to gain insights into how customer experience expectations will place new demands on marketers hoping to connect with this customer of the future.

  • The CMO of 2018: Where Will Marketing Be? Recorded: Dec 12 2013 49 mins
    It is hard to believe the amazing changes that marketing has seen in the past five years. With the explosive rise of social media shaping how customers engage and communicate to the era of Big Data and the need to master new analytics and technologies, marketing looks very different than it did.

    So what will marketing look like in another five years? And how are marketers setting skills, technologies and processes now to be prepared for the customer of 2018? Will more CMOs be CEO's? Will the role of the CMO continue to change? Or will a new role emerge…the Chief Digital Officer or the Chief Marketing Technologist?
