Refreshment Break

Words Matter - The Foundational DNA of Marketing

There is a growing “confidence crisis” today related to digital marketing creative. In fact, 71% of CMOs don’t believe in their creative’s ability to drive results. Join this session to learn about Persado's unique solution for turning the traditionally subjective process of choosing the words and phrases used in marketing copy into an objective, data-driven machine delivering earth shattering results across digital channels for your brand. 

Finding New Revenue in a Digital World

A large, national omni-channel retailer in the gift industry was struggling with customer engagement particularly for their largest revenue-generating holiday. Surprisingly half of their holiday sales came from new customers making it even more critical to increase engagement from their existing customers. Learn how combining analytics and modeling along with targeted marketing activities in underutilized channels generated an incremental $3.9 million dollars over the 3-day holiday for this retailer.
