At its core, email is about a conversation between us and our customer – we’ve always heard their voices in our campaign metrics (did they open?, did they click?, did they buy?). Today, our business is riding a wave of new approaches and new information (did they like? who did they friend? how long did they linger on that page? Were they standing in the coffee line when they looked at my message?) that is amplifying the customers voice almost to the point where we can't hear it anymore! Amazon's Don Parsons will talk about some experiences in this new world and share ideas about how to find your customer's voice in the programs you send and how to adapt your programs to drive customer engagement with your messages.

 

Keynote
Donald Parsons, Director, Outbound Marketing, Amazon
9:30 AM

Everyone thinks they can do email marketing, but in reality there is a reason that marketers specialize. Despite a push towards integration, many marketing teams lack alignment. In this session, email marketers will discuss how they are overcoming silos and working with colleagues and creating pipelines, as well as how they are navigating internal politics to have email’s voice heard within the larger marketing organization. Attendees will learn successful tactics for working with digital marketing colleagues, how to align budgets and strategies, how to work as a team and how to convince the CMO of email’s importance.

Every marketer knows that email is a large revenue generator, yet the industry is still challenged with how to manage attribution. Just as overcoming siloed marketing departments won’t happen overnight, achieving true cross channel attribution models will take some real work.

To coupon or not to coupon? Standing behind the value of your brand/product is most often at direct odds with using coupons to discount the value that you’ve worked so hard to build.  We’ll explore strategies and tactics brands can take to remain competitive in this post-recession, discount-crazy landscape while still maintaining the integrity of your brand.

In a world where consumers leave an exhaust trail of data behind every move, marketers must learn to leverage data in order to optimize and systematically improve campaigns. Having the email trigger set up and deploying the content is not enough. Every email your company sends out must be the most mobile-friendly, customer-focused email you can produce. The days of “set it and forget it” are long gone, one must constantly and relentlessly be testing a strategy. In this presentation, Richard Cohene will reveal Beyond the Rack's approach to data.

Richard Cohene, VP of Marketing, Beyond the Rack

Attendees will learn about how email marketing job roles are changing and what learning opportunities exist in order to help manage their email careers.
