September 14 at 11am EDT

This two-part series dives into determining the ROI on advertising. We will discuss how our marketing efforts more generally, has become a major, and important, preoccupation. This preoccupation has distracted us from a more important question: what causes advertising to work in the first place?

Knowing an advertisement works tells us little about why it worked. That doesn’t stop us generating ideas about why it did (or did not), but how do we know those ideas map onto reality? How can we assess the veracity of these beliefs? The answer is that we cannot. This poses serious problems when it comes to creating effective advertising content.

Fix: Break the Addiction That’s Killing Brands

The advertising industry has changed and will never be the same. The way in which brands need to communicate with their audience has evolved, partly due to a more sophisticated consumer and partly because current marketing tools, techniques and strategies are yielding less than optimal results.

While conventional wisdom has driven ad agencies to focus on digital marketing and web design, Chris Kneeland, CEO of one of North America’s leading marketing agencies Cult Collective, argues that these activities are becoming less relevant as time goes on.

During this 60-minute session, Chris will provide an overview of what needs to happen for consumers to turn from transactional customers to engaged apostles.

This webinar is part of a 3 part series called Nudge, Persuasion, and Influence: How Emergent Marketing Activities are Impacting How we Decide, What we Buy, and Who we Vote For. Contact us to register for all 3 webinars!

The Changing Role of Branding in the Era of Experience

It used to be “the medium is the message”, but in today’s high touch social environment “the experience is the message”, and the brand. Now, more than ever, customer experience is tied fundamentally to how a brand is perceived, and has a direct impact on it’s success.

In this webinar Laurence Bernstein makes the argument that the experience is the brand, and by extension, the brand is the business. Understanding how strategic design and management of customers' experiences impact the business and determine the strength of the brand (and hence the business), is essential in a world where customers really do have the final say.

Laurence Bernstein has been a proponent of experience based branding as the central function of effective consumer marketing since 2001. He was a pioneer in the idea that the secret to building great brands is converting features, attributes and benefits into meaningful customer experiences, and triggering these experiences at every relevant touchpoint.

Creating Customer Experience: How to Keep Customers Coming Back for More

For some organizations, creating a customer experience is simple—the experience is the purpose of the purchase in the first place. A tourist destination in the Bahamas for example. In this case, the organization must become an expert in understanding what drives customers’ reactions, what inspires delight, and what pitfalls to avoid that could undo the experience.

For other organizations—many other organizations in both B2C and B2B contexts—the customer experience may not be the central provision, but it is nevertheless crucial to the overall interaction. By ignoring the customer experience, organizations are missing a great opportunity to build relationships and secure repeated sales. As worldwide competition increases, marketers must think of the relationships they develop with other firms as analogous to providing an experience for their customers—one that creates a commitment to maintaining an ongoing business relationship.

So how can your organization create an experience that makes customers want to keep coming back for more?

It’s not good enough to simply be ‘on’ social media. Without clear strategic objectives and goals, all those tweets could be for naught. Everyday, more and more brands are learning that in order to truly see success in social media, they must move beyond “vanity metrics” (like “Post Rate” and “Growth Rate”) in favor of more dynamic and innovative measurement techniques.
