How A ‘Concierge Experience’ Online Can Increase Leads And Revenue Pipeline
Why should B2B brands seek to deliver a ‘concierge experience’ online, and what is it? Shaun will look at how you can map user journeys and define personas to identify hidden ‘experience’ opportunities. He will also provide a practical example of how a ‘concierge experience’ is driving a dramatic increase in international revenue pipeline for a technology company.
Customer Centric Search
Logged out searchers still get personalised results. Rank tracking only gives us part of the picture. So is SEO a mass media channel, or should we be trying to talk to an audience of one? How do we even do that in a post-GDPR world? Now is the time to move on from “user experience” as a ranking factor – the only result that matters is the one with the best customer experience overall.
Head of Network & Partnerships
Bringing Open Banking To Life With Bud
Open Banking went live in January 2018, but what has really happened? Bud, an award winning financial marketplace, are leading the charge in this space bringing it to life with key players such as HSBC. Collaboration is the new norm with more banks and fintechs collaborating and even the Government. Alan Walsh, Head of Network and Partnerships, will show how these collaborations benefit everyone involved, especially the consumer and explain their vision for the future of finance.
Director of Client Success
The Psychology Of Referral Marketing
Referral is the most effective form of new customer acquisition, outstripping the likes of PPC and social. With CPAs costing up to 80 per cent less than via other channels, it’s easy to see why brands are rushing to offer refer-a-friend programmes to their customers. But getting your programme live is just the start. Robin takes a look at some of the whip-smart psychological hacks brands such as Gap, The AA, and BT are employing to get their customers sharing more and, in turn, those customers’ friends shopping.

Whichever way you see it, GDPR represents a new chapter for email marketers. The future is bright, but to succeed post-GDPR we must focus on building trust, providing transparency and delivering value to our customers. Dani explores how to build a data strategy that delivers long-term growth.
