Building Community: Social Support for Digital Marketing

-Paul Gilliham

Something that has become abundantly clear to me in the 15+years I have been working with customers online is that even though you design and build cutting edge products, many of your customers often know more about using them than you. I think this revelation occurs to individuals long before organizations. It is pretty easy to suffer from organizational myopia, thinking that we know everything about the products or solutions we produce.

It is a company’s job to design and build products/solutions, yes; but customers’ jobs are using them every day to help run their businesses. This is especially relevant when we start to talk about high-tech products, particularly in the B2B sector, but can apply to just about anything from computers to guitars to food mixers.

Integrating Your Test&Target Campaigns into SiteCatalyst: Don’t Be a Party Pooper

- Rand Blair

One of the most challenging aspects of hosting a party is sometimes you end up inviting friends and colleagues from two mutually exclusive circles of friends. Under one roof you have your college buddies mingling with your boss and his or her significant other. Those are two distinct groups that represent different realities of you. Both of those realities are based on the same you, but you don’t really want to see those realities collide.

Both SiteCatalyst and Test&Target are amazing and powerful tools that allow a digital marketer to better understand the traffic on their site and test their marketing ideas among groups of users.  However, business users often wonder how to make sense of the titanic amount of data that is collected and actually use it to increase conversion on their site.  What I’m going to show you today is that you can actually build a statistical model to find the users who are most likely to complete a conversion using SiteCatalyst, and then target those exact individuals using Test&Target to really get some amazing conversion lift!

Using SiteCatalyst to Build Media Mix Models

- Trevor Paulsen

Adobe’s Digital Marketing solutions are now opening doors to predictive marketing optimizations that were previously only available to huge companies that spend millions of dollars constructing complex economic models to explain the reach of their marketing spend.  These large models typically include surveys, studies, panels, and hosts of other expensive outside resources to deliver statistical optimization to your marketing budget that will maximize your return on spend.
