Email is far from dead. It's thriving and continuing to evolve every day. But there's more competition for your customers' attention than ever before. Embracing and excelling in the next generation of email will require your marketing strategy to evolve, too, from your tech to your teams to your mindset.
Modern customer engagement is built on data. The key to making the most of data in your customer engagement efforts? Embracing effective data management and ensuring you have the mindset, tools, and strategy you need to make true data agility a reality throughout your brand’s technology ecosystem. Let's dig into the nuts and bolts of data agility with an expert, Tom Pinckney from customer data infrastructure experts Segment.
Growing your customer base is a phenomenal sign for your business. It means you're probably doing something right in terms of your product offering and the customer experiences that you're providing. But to continuing to offer these brilliant experience to your customers as you simultaneously continue to scale can be as much of a challenge as it is an opportunity. In this piece, we hear from Braze's Jon Hyman and American Well's Kaitlin Sannett on how to do it right.
As digital customer engagement efforts become increasingly central to how companies build long-term loyalty and drive stronger revenue, we’re seeing many companies—from startups to enterprise brands—lean on agencies to ensure that they’re doing things right. Get the inside scoop on how to get it right from leading agencies BrightWave, Laughlin Constable, Prolific Interactive, and R/GA.
While AI as a concept has been with us for decades, it’s moving more and more from the realm of fantasy into a reality—one that harnesses computing power to develop smart logic on top of a lot of data. But making AI work for your business isn’t as simple as pushing a button—you have to make it happen.
As 2019 gets underway, one of the big questions facing brands big and small around the world is: what does the new year hold for global data privacy and security? We sat down with our SVP of Legal, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary Susan Wiseman and Associate General Counsel and Senior Director (EMEA) Marjorie Armitage, who have been on the front lines of this evolving space in recent years. Read on to see them map out their predictions for the coming year:
Brilliant customer experiences are built on data. But the vast majority of the information being collected by brands is never used. To help change that, Braze is pleased to announced the launch of custom-made Looker Blocks to help our customers visualize and understand their data faster and more effectively.
In this industry, we all need to know if our actions produce the results we want, and, frankly, we’d like to know quickly. In marketing, testing has been used for decades to quantitatively compare messages against each other and against a control. In digital marketing especially, subject line testing and similar kinds of copy testing have never been easier. But, there are details to consider. One big one: how much data do you need to perform a meaningful test?
Security and data privacy have always been a key focus for us at Braze. Now, after a long and thorough process, I’m proud to share that Braze has successfully completed its SOC 2 Type 2 audit and ISO 27001 certification during the 2018 calendar year. These key new security steps mean that our customers can feel even more confident that we do what we say we do with respect to our security controls.
To dig into what’s possible when a brand gets their act together and successfully marries data, technology, and teams to create consistent, powerful brand experiences (and also what happens when they really, really don’t), let's take a—fictional—look at two very different versions of one person's customer journey.
