Innovation in Acquisition: Big Data and Real-Time Targeting at the Top of the Funnel

Wednesday, May 18 - 10:30 AM – 11:15AM

Better quality opt-ins and a larger database don’t have to be a struggle, but year after year, email marketers complain that customer acquisition is one of their largest challenges. In this session, industry veteran Jordan Cohen will lead a panel of brand marketing executives in a discussion about the strategies, tactics, and technologies that they are using to acquire their best customers, with precision, at a massive scale.

Key takeaways will include:

  • How to generate mass quantities of sign ups across multiple channels while ensuring a great user experience
  • New approaches and technologies that make acquisition programs easier and more effective than ever
  • Exciting opportunities for expanding the reach of acquisition programs across email, mobile, display and social

Innovations: Making Subject Lines Pop in the Inbox.

Wednesday, May 18 - 11:20 AM – 12:05PM

When marketers write a subject line, there’s two possible outcomes: 1) they win the lotto and write the one in a million which wins; or 2) they’re wrong, and lose sales as a result. In this presentation, Parry Malm will take you through the lessons he’s learned from his time ESP-side, Client-side, Agency-side… and now as a subject line innovator. Parry will start by debunking accepted best practice - and then will show you how, through scientific rigor and statistical methodology, you can flip the script and make your subject lines pop in the inbox. You will learn 3 Crucial Secrets about Subject Lines that the “experts” won’t tell you.

It’s Time to Prove the Worth of your Email Campaigns!

Wednesday, May 18 - 11:20 AM – 12:05PM

How many times have you known what can improve your email-marketing results, but you weren’t able to get the buy-in from senior management? Similarly, have you ever been frustrated with an aspect of your program — such as your email service provider or your deliverability — but you weren’t able to successfully get senior management to invest in a more appropriate platform? The problem likely is neither in your ideas nor your understanding of email marketing; it may be in how you are presenting the value to your management or your clients.

In this session, Mitch Lapides shares how you can use several practical models to estimate the impact of any of a variety of improvements to your email program. For example, what’s the impact of a 5% improvement in deliverability to your bottom line? As well, what would be the incremental revenue generated from a combined improvement in open rate and click-through rate over the next 12 months? The more you understand the value, the easier it will be to justify the investment necessary to achieve those results.

Then, with these financials, you will see how the conversation quickly changes in the boardroom…in your favor.

Finally, see how Mitch and his team put this to work with LasikPlus, a leading provider of laser vision correction. Their efforts resulted in multiple improvements (such as a 78% increase in clicks and a 33% increase in conversions) that generated significant revenue growth.

Dynamic Content: Email Personalization that Pushes the Envelope (On the Open)

Wednesday, May 18 - 12:05 PM – 1:05PM

You are sending more mail but fewer people are clicking. Why? Emails can no longer be the same for everyone, static and manually produced. Email marketers need to provide relevancy and leverage dynamic and real-time content to engage users and improve conversion. You have 3 seconds to make an impression - how do you do that?

With dynamic, personalized content you target individual subscribers with different content all within the same mailing. Using dynamic components will save you tons of time, get better results and is actually fun to use.

In this lunch & learn you will learn how to:

  • Match the right content with the right user based on a number of factors (hint: time, device and location, to name a few)
  • Avoid the time sink of creating segments and automatically adapt email for each recipient with the same template
  • Leverage data you already have and data you never knew you had to gain better insights
  • Get positive results on your email campaigns

Looking Through the Wrong End of the Telescope: How and Why the Lack of Customer-Centric Reports in your Marketing Platform may be Holding you Back.

Wednesday, May 18 - 4:45PM – 5:30 PM

Marketing Automation technology was meant to allow marketers to deploy seamless multi (omni) channel campaigns, kill batch & blast forever and take us to the Promised Land. Yet in a recent study only 4% of adopters rated multi-channel marketing as a benefit and batch and blast refuses to die. In his keynote Dela explains why and argues that despite recent advances in marketing technology the KPI’s in use are over a century old. Not only do they make decision making difficult, they have no place in the armoury of a modern marketer. Without customer-centric KPI’s - delivering a truly multi-channel experience to each and every customer will never be achieved.

Wear is the Future?! Email Marketers meet Wearable Tech

Thursday, May 19 - 11:20 AM – 12:05PM

Smart watches, connected accessories and other devices, coupled with machine learning and iot data platforms represent a whole new world of opportunities for email marketers. Way beyond just fitness trackers, the Apple Watch, Tory Burch ring, and many other form factors that are flooding the market have messaging as a key functionality; whether it’s simply notifications or the ability to display and respond. How can email marketers think about this new and extremely personal way that consumers will receive email…even more personal than the mobile phone (wearables are often thought of as the next generation of mobile).

What type of data will now be available through extremely powerful and detailed “big data” iot platforms? Will formatting and crafting the message need to be completely rethought? And most importantly how will this powerful new industry redefine the relationship marketers will now have with their customers?

Driving Digital Innovation in a 104-Year Old Organization

Thursday, May 19 - 3:40 PM – 4:25 PM

While most people think of innovation as moving into the future - sometimes it’s building a foundation for the present. Girl Scouts has embarked on an initiative to migrate all 112 councils to the same technologies for their Web platform, CRM, and email marketing platform over the course of three years. Kristin Bond, Senior Email Marketing Manager for Girl Scouts of the USA will discuss building and scaling up an email marketing program that currently has 50+ business units (and counting!) and more than 300 users - who don’t technically have to follow her recommendations. But how does one initiate change when faced with 104 years of “but we’ve always done it this way”? How do we persuade them to follow email best practices, when we’re not quite leading by example with our own emails (yet!)? And how do we persuade and educate our own team to start leading by example?
