There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.
Join us for this live webinar on Thursday, September 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.The face-to-face B2B sales process of the past — the many phone calls, the gratuitous lunches, the exhausting trade shows, followed by more phone calls — has been transformed by the digital landscape.The number of touchpoints and opportunities that now exist to intercept prospects and turn them into viable leads is unprecedented.That doesn’t mean lead generation has become easy.It takes a healthy mix of art and science to succeed in a hyper-competitive, crowded space.And it takes a well-honed knowledge of all the available channels and how they can compliment one another.
Join us for this live webinar on Web Personalization Thursday, October 22 at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern.A few years ago, if the theme of “personalization” had emerged in your marketing circles, most industry people would have referred to Amazon as the gold standard.Amazon still is the Prime, free-shipping standard when it comes to knowing what products I want and when I want them.By way of personalization, Amazon transformed online shopping into a web experience (and we know how many times “customer experience” comes up in marketing meetings).Companies of all sizes are following Amazon’s lead and many have been seeing huge results.In fact, according to VB Insight analyst Andrew Jones, in his latest report on website personalization, 87 percent of those companies have seen a lift of at least 5 percent in their most important metrics.
In a show of sensitivity carefully plotted nine month ago, the $2.2 billion Seattle-based sporting goods co-op is officially opting out of the shopping madness the day after Thanksgiving this year.In a touching email dispatched to its 5.5 million co-op members yesterday, the company pledged to keep its doors closed on Nov. 27, the day when all hell breaks loose at malls across America, sometimes fatally.That’s right: All 143 of REI’s retail locations, along with its headquarters and distribution centers, will not be open for business.The same goes for Thanksgiving Day, too.Gee willikers, Charlie Brown would be proud.Instead, they’ll shake a leg in the Great Outdoors to “reconnect with family and friends…” (We’re sure none of them will Netflix and chill, lazily riding out the tryptophan crash, like we can’t wait to do.)

And, as fans of the movie franchise know, these spoofs are of the affectionate variety, created out of reverence for the films rather than to mock them – most of the time, anyway.You could spend days trawling through the endless parade of spoof videos on YouTube, ranging from Robot Chicken to Family Guy to Community.If there was a prize for completeness of a parody, then without doubt the award would go to the Blue Harvest episode of Family Guy.In the episode the electricity goes out, so Peter retells his family the story of A New Hope, with the show's characters playing the leading roles – Chris is Luke, Peter is Han, Brian is Chewbacca – and Stewie is Vader, of course.Various episodes of The SimpsonsThe Simpsons first hit our screens four years after the release of Return of the Jedi, and by the time The Phantom Menace was released we were reaching the point where the show's decline began Simpsons nerds tend to agree it was around Season 12 .

Similarly, in the B2B world, artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive technologies represent a disruptive shift that’s forcing companies to reimagine how they operate.With that in mind, here are eight questions everyone is asking about self-driving cars, each of which has an important parallel that helps frame AI’s impact on business and society at large.Google’s self-driving cars have already driven 1,210,676 miles yet, as of July this year, there had only been 14 accidents — all caused by human error, not by the software.Given the fact that around 33,000 people die in traffic accidents in the U.S. every year, and much of blame falls to distracted drivers, there is a huge opportunity to make our roads safer.In the B2B world, very few of our decisions are life or death, but there is still important revenue at stake.When the models are live, someone needs to monitor the impact of any changes and watch for drift in performance to ensure continued accuracy.

Confirming earlier reports, the NY Times says that Google will introduce a voice-controlled digital assistant device for the home tomorrow at its developer conference in San Francisco.Part of Google s motivation here is that it sees a successful product that it believes it can improve upon and partly the move is defensive.The Alexa assistant relies on relatively structured voice commands and is often stumped by queries where it doesn t have available data or question phasing is confusing.While Amazon does have search technology A9 , it doesn t have Google s massive search index, Knowledge Graph, AI chops or its historical understanding of and ability to answer questions.Google s search assets and structured data could enable it to build a broader set of capabilities into Home.Virtual assistants offer the potential realization of the conversational search concept Google has been discussing and promoting for the past few years.
Done right, your editorial calendar will help you manage ideas, streamline content production and promotion, align content with key touch points along the buyer s journey, and craft content that addresses key customer pain points while providing the fuel for marketing and sales to nurture prospects and turn leads into customers.If you choose to utilize an existing template, eliminate extraneous fields that you won t use; they re only a distraction.Here s a look at a few essential elements most businesses will use for an effective editorial calendar:Title or topic: You may not have a finalized title for every piece of content that goes into production, but you should have a general topic or working title.Product or service offering: If your company sells multiple products or services, aligning each content asset with the related offering in your editorial calendar results in more relevant content.In either case, it s helpful to document writers and editors responsible for each content asset for historical analysis over time.This field allows for quick reference and filtering when you re looking for ideas or assets relevant to an upcoming promotion or event and also helps you get more traction out of ideas – rather than disappearing into the black hole of a months-old email thread, you can rediscover ideas you can use today that would have gone unutilized otherwise.
