  • Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?

    No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.

    A VentureBeat webinar helps marketers wade through the tech-speak and discover how to:

    • Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics
    • Winnow down your options to a handful of appropriate platforms
    • Come up with ways to measure success
    • Generate meaningful business insight from data
    • Plan for the future by the ability to add new data sources and tools

    Speakers:
    * Jon Cifuentes, Analyst, VB Insight
    * Ken Davis, CEO, TaskEasy
    * Ware Sykes, CEO, Nowait
    * Mike Osborn, CMO, Upstart
    * Wendy Schuchart, moderator, VentureBeat

    This webinar will be based on the results of Jon Cifuentes' VB Insight Marketing Analytics report.

  • Before every company executive sits down to write a blog, pull together a slideshow, or provide data for an infographic, marketers must come up with an overarching strategy for their content marketing initiative.

    Without this, consumers will see a scattershot approach that doesn't fit with your organization's messaging – and they'll miss out on the opportunity to learn more about your business. Do it well and you'll have forged the foundation for real connections between the faces of your org and your customers, separating yourself from competitors and producing a return on your content marketing investment.

    Given that so many companies today use content marketing, how can you rise over your competitors? How can your content sparkle, capturing consumers' eyes (or ears), versus the virtual noise of paid and unpaid content filling the Internet and mobile devices?

    This VentureBeat webinar stars some of the top experts in content marketing. When it concludes you'll know:

    • How to design a content marketing program that complements your marketing initiatives
    • The way to find your voice – and how to adhere to it across media and platforms
    • Which internal professionals to target for particular platforms (and how to get them to agree to do it)
    • The benefits of content marketing, such as lead generation, expanded social presence, cementing brand recognition, and building individual executives' brands
    • How to determine the ROI of content marketing, plus the tools and metrics to use.

    Speakers:
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VB Insight
    * Corey Weiner, COO, Jun Group
    * Chase Hooley, Senior Manager, Content Marketing, MapR Technologies
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat


    This webinar will be based on Stewart Rogers' VB Insight report, which will be published in February, 2016.

  • Businesses spend a huge amount of time and money profiling their customers to predict behaviour based on historic information, such as where they live and what they’ve previously purchased. The problem with this approach is that it assumes we fit certain stereotypes. It also only allows you to profile those customers who have provided you with their personal details, excluding the masses who may walk into your shop or visit you online and never leave their details. At Triggar, we believe that the best predictors of behaviour are what we’re doing or how we’re feeling from moment to moment.

    Discover how we use predictive analytics to help us analyse, predict and improve online and offline experience, turning more prospects into customers and more customers into brand advocates.

  • If you've ever seen a picture of Taylor Swift or Jon Hamm in a magazine, you'll know the outfit they are wearing wearing probably cost in the region of $1-10k. You really, really want to look like Taylor Swift or Jon Hamm, but that's a bit out of your price range. Fortunately, the magazine has your back, and tells you how to buy (almost) the same looks for under $100.

    We thought it was high time someone did that, but with marketing technology.

    In this webinar, we'll tell you which marketing technologies are most popular among the Fortune 500s of this world, and then explain how to "get the look" for considerably less. Sometimes free.

    By attending this webinar, you'll:

    * Find out which marketing technologies have the most 'enterprise-class' users
    * Discover free or cheap alternatives to start using today
    * Learn the limitations of those more cost-effective solutions
    * Get the scoop on the up-and-coming products making waves

  • Every single day, the world's internet users spend well over 150,000 aggregated years reading, watching, clicking, liking, and commenting on digital content on the two global superpowers of digital content's sites: Facebook, and Google's YouTube. And every single day, more and more of the world's $600 billion advertising spend moves from TV and other legacy media to digital.

    Cue WWIII.

    We'll dig into the findings of John Koetsier's latest VB Insight report and investigate actionable strategies for today's video marketer. We're also going to talk to hot video-based marketing leaders about what works for them in their own video content -- and their biggest tips for avoiding pitfalls and costly mistakes.

    *Learn where the youth and millennial markets are watching their video content
    * Focus your marketing strategy on the right platform for your niche
    * Get contextual and in-depth data to make informed decisions about your video platform today... and tomorrow
    * Monetize your content the right way... once and for all.

  • According to a recent CMO Council study, the ability to achieve a truly personalized, enriched and highly relevant digital experience has been challenged by data availability and aggregation—and more specifically, getting to the right intelligence that can be learned from this wealth of data. “Brand Attraction From Enriched Interaction,” a report completed in partnership with IBM, reveals that only 21 percent of corporate marketers believe they are doing a very good job of captivating and engaging their audiences while only 19 percent feel they are doing a good job of creating campaigns that reach and resonate with their diverse and complex customer bases.

    But just as customers keep evolving their own expectations for experience, service and engagement from the brands they choose to do business with, global trends and technology evolutions also threaten to drive the ability to exceed customer expectations further and further out of marketing’s reach. This digital disruption that is being powered by the customer requires each marketer to look forward to spot key trends that are on the horizon so that organizations can start laying a solid foundation to enable the rapid advancement of the digital agenda.

    Join the CMO Council, in partnership with IBM Digital Experience, as we explore the opportunities, requirements, challenges and strategies needed to stay ahead of the curve and take optimal advantage of the key experience trends and transformations shaking up marketing in the coming year. Among the issues to be discussed in the interactive hour-long webcast:

    •Marketing’s reaction to how key tech trends will impact operations and business
    •Insights into where, how and why these technology trends will change how our customers choose to engage—and who customers will turn to for new experiences
    •Best practices in leveraging and integrating these technology trends, from APIs to capitalizing on the Internet of things
