  • How to Avoid the Top Five Personalization Mistakes


    Everybody wants their customers to have a friendly, comprehensive, personalized experience. It’s a big part of your reputation. But in a digital world where 60% of all buying decisions are made before a vendor is even contacted, making the most of each interaction is even more important. And when your website is your digital storefront, personalized service gets even tougher. Frankly, a lot of businesses struggle to do it well.

    Fortunately the experts from Siili of Helsinki and the Telerik® Sitefinity™ team are sharing their years of experience in what works, what doesn’t, and how to avoid fatal errors in personalization. Watch this webinar to learn:

    • The definition of personalization and why everyone wants to do it
    • Where should organizations be using personalization?
    • The common mistakes when adopting personalization
    • The “right” path to successful personalization, and why it matters
  • The Top 5 Challenges When Scaling A Digital Business


    Scaling a business used to be easy - more space, more people, more products.  The growth was linear and predictable. Scaling a digital business is not the same - it is hard, really hard.

    On the surface, digital business has no boundaries and constraints; it can grow by expanding its digital footprint across multiple websites, countries, languages, currencies and methods of support. Yet, digital growth poses unique growth challenges - scaling comes with hidden costs.

    Join Lora Kratchounova, Principal at Scratch Marketing + Media, and Robert Mattson, Director of Product Marketing at Telerik, as they discuss the findings and implications of new industry-wide research focused on the challenges organizations face when scaling their digital properties.

    Key takeaways:

    • What the biggest challenges are when scaling to multiple websites
    • The trials and tribulations of keeping your digital properties up to date after the implementation is all over
    • What the top benefits of a multi-site management platform are and why multisite management solutions are the key to seamless scaling.

  • What's New in Telerik Sitefinity 8.1


    The Sitefinity team is excited to announce our most recent release of Sitefinity. This release includes new features for both the core Content Management System (CMS) and Digital Experience Cloud (DEC). In our upcoming “What’s New in Sitefinity 8.1” webcast you will have a chance to see all these new improvements in action, including:

    Sitefinity CMS

    • Greater flexibility into syncing content across multiple sites
    • More robust support for email campaigns
    • More powerful language translation with built-in integration with Lionbridge Freeway
    • Even more modern MVC controls to build extensions to Sitefinity-powered websites.

    Sitefinity DEC

  • Why Personalized Digital Marketing Hasn't Worked... Yet


    The concept is simple and elegant. Provide each potential customer, or existing client, with exactly what they want, think they want, or don’t know they want for each interaction. Who wouldn’t want that? It’s the recipe for sales, engagement and world product domination.

    But, it doesn’t work….well, not for most of us.

    Not because the concept is wrong, but simply because it’s so hard to implement, maintain and do right. Sure, if you’re an Amazon or Netflix you have personalization down, but what about the rest of us? Why can’t we find that magic combination of process, technology and, of course, data that will enable us to be the perfect butler to meet the needs of our clients, and help us have a great quarter at the same time?

    When it comes to personalization many organizations set their goals too high too soon. This urge to over reach causes them to miss the smaller goals they need to achieve before they can reach their end game. In this webcast you’ll learn the steps to reach success with personalization, and more importantly, the pitfalls to avoid. You’ll see what data is truly necessary for different examples of personalization and where it can be found. You’ll learn where to start, how to improve and when to add a new layer of sophistication to your strategy in order to get the optimal short-term and long-term results.

  • Introducing the First Enterprise MVC CMS


    If you could choose, would you go with mature or modern technology?

    Very often, the term “Enterprise Software” has been associated with heavy, clunky, old but powerful systems. The technologies you love are just not always applicable in enterprise systems, nd yet you can’t spend time developing enterprise features from scratch.

    With deep roots in the .NET and JavaScript community, we are passionate about the same technologies you are—we simply refuse to build enterprise software the old way. We would like to introduce you to Telerik® Sitefinity™ Platform 8.0–the first Content Management System (CMS) to meet the challenges of the modern developer and match them with a mature, globally scalable infrastructure. Join this webinar to learn:

    • How Sitefinity 8.0 addresses your challenges as a developer or an architect
    • How you can use the Sitefinity platform to build modern web experiences using ASP .NET MVC, AngularJS, Bootstrap or your technology of choice
    • How can you scale efficiently even if you had to build hundreds of integrated websites, applications and portals globally
  • Data-Driven Marketing Done Right: Focusing on Prospects of Value Not Volume


    For 50 years marketers have lived by a mantra: volume and velocity. They became very effective at broadcasting compelling messages. In fact they became too good at it and the world became saturated with marketing content. 

    In the age of digital marketing getting your message out is not the problem – noise is. Customers have become increasingly effective in tuning out marketing and sales messages if the not relevant to them in the moment.

    Old tactics are getting more expensive and less effective, because the best they could do is focus on quantity – in the past marketers didn’t have the data or the capabilities to truly analyze quality. But as channels of interaction have expanded to include the digital world, marketing’s ability to be more data-driven and targets has expanded as well. You might be aware of the 80/20 rule of productivity, but in data-driven marketing there is an even stricter 80/2 rule. In many organizations less than 2% of the people you market to will eventually become customers that bring more than 80% of the revenue. The question is how do we identify, that 2% and treat them as the valuable resource they are? Or, perhaps even more importantly, how do we grow that 2% to drive more sales and revenue?

    In this webinar you will learn about data-driven techniques that are making it possible to focus on quality prospects and get better results. We will explore how to execute tactics that produce the best results at a lower cost.

  • The Next Marketing Era: Marketing’s Digital Command Center


    Marketing is now more responsible for revenue growth than ever before.  With 60% of each buying decision happening before potential clients even contact vendors, marketing is being called upon to be more effective in leading conversations.  The trouble is that those conversations are happening over multiple channels including web, mobile, events, and a bevy of others.
