As the digital age has fundamentally changed how the customer functions on a day to day basis, it has also revolutionized the field of marketing. The same fundamental questions continue to dominate marketing: Who is my customer? How can I understand them better? How can we build their trust and loyalty and grow our business? But in today’s technologically advanced world, the answers to these questions are rapidly evolving every day. Given the explosion of data and the plethora of new technologies available to harness it, marketing leaders must determine what tools they can use to efficiently and effectively understand their customers better. Simultaneously, marketers are being pressed to demonstrate the value of their products/services across multiple channels in order to convince today’s economically constrained customer, while also building a relationship between the customer and the brand that is personal and valuable.
Argyle Executive Forum is bringing together leading marketing executives from a variety of industry verticals to discuss best-practices and innovative marketing strategies in a discussion-based format at our 2014 Leadership in Digital Marketing Forum. The forum will focus on several areas, including (but not limited to): the digital marketplace, the explosion of big data, the importance of analytical capabilities, social media, exceptional branding, etc.

"Busting the Myths of Digital Personalization"Every well-read executive knows that the future of marketing is one to one, omni-channel personalization. The customers want it. ¬†In fact, a recent Harris poll found that nearly three-fourths (74%) of online consumers get frustrated with websites when content appears that has nothing to do with their interests. ¬†Businesses want it. ¬†Over 94% of the executives surveyed by eConsultancy said that personalization of the web experience was critical to their current and future success. ¬†And the business impact is well documented. ¬†A report released by Gartner last week stated that companies embracing digital personalization saw their number of items per order increase up to 50%, average order values increase up to 53% and customer conversion rates increase up to 33%. ¬†So why are so few companies actually doing the one thing that has such promise to dramatically transform the customer experience?In this presentation, Monetate founder and Executive Chairman David Brussin will bust the myths that prevent companies from launching a personalization strategy. Mr. Brussin has been working with companies since 2007 on their digital personalization programs and will discuss the real-life challenges companies have had as they adopt personalization, and the unfounded fears they had to overcome to get started. ¬†He will also share what a digital strategy looks like and provide some critical case studies and best practices that will help everyone as they head down the path to personalization.In this session you will learn:

Panel 1‚ÄúSo, You Think You Can Dance?: Unravelling Digital Data for Superior Consumer Insights‚ÄĚAs companies are increasingly forced to expand their digital footprint, there lies a huge opportunity for Marketers to generate superior Consumer Insights hitherto unavailable to their traditional counterparts. Social media, for example, offers a large panel of consumers and the opportunity to listen-in to natural conversations that are not influenced or boxed in any way. This gives Marketers the opportunity to understand consumer preferences and consumption patterns, faster and on demand. It also exposes them to a greater depth and breadth of conversations, providing them with both valuable context as well as unexpected relations and preferences that could pivot an entire marketing campaign. Combining internal and external data as well as structured and unstructured data, provides Marketers a greater granularity into consumer behavior that maintains relevance even with scale. When customer care telephone logs are combined with social media data, Marketers can weave an intricate web of Consumer Experience as well as opportunities to cross sell and upsell. When structured CRM data is combined with unstructured geo-location data, Marketers can customize campaigns at an individual consumer level.¬†¬†Our panel consists of senior Marketers and Marketing Analysts of successful brands that both sell as well as interact with consumers online. They will talk about the most powerful ways in which they have used data to Tango with their Consumers.Moderator:Gopi KoteeswaranCEOLatentviewPanelists:Ken GodfreyDirector of Digital Marketing, North AmericaPhilipsBrian GrovesChief Marketing Officer, US Consumer HealthcarePfizerPeter HarrisonGlobal Head of Marketing InsightsCignaEd WildSenior Director of AnalyticsPepsi North America BeveragesPanel 2‚ÄúThe New ‚ÄėDigital‚Äô CMO‚ÄĚ
