  • 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 Progress® 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 Progress, 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:

    • How organizations are best supporting multiple digital properties
    • 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.
  • 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
  • Best Practices for Setup, Templating and Widget Creation within Sitefinity CMS

    So much focus goes into development planning and coding that often proper setup within the Sitefinity CMS is neglected. Following the recommended best practices can not only speed up time to market, but will also help you create more maintainable sites. 

    This technical session is part of a new series of webinars dedicated to Sitefinity best practices. The inaugural webinar session will focus on the early steps in a project after installation – Setup and Templating. We'll also review some best practices when creating widgets in Sitefinity CMS.

  • Microsoft SharePoint and Telerik Sitefinity: The Right Tool. The Right Job.

    Hammers and screwdrivers are both useful tools, but you don't want to use one when you should use another. The same goes for complementary solutions like Microsoft SharePoint and Telerik Sitefinity CMS. Every solution has strengths, and to be successful you have to align those strengths to the right projects. 

    During this webcast, you’ll hear from two experts about how Sharepoint and Sitefinity CMS can work together, and how .NET developers and non-technical people can get the most out of these solutions. Lino Tadros, President and CEO of Falafel Software, is a leading expert in both Sitefinity CMS and SharePoint, and Robert Mattson, Director of Sitefinity Product Marketing will discuss the pros and cons of using each solution.
