Financial Services Marketers: What to Read As You Plan Your 2019 CX Strategy

December 11, 2018 by

I don’t think I need to explain the importance of the customer experience. Without customers, you don’t have a business. While everyone understands this in theory, not every business prioritizes the customer experience. Jim Marous of The Financial Brand and The Digital Banking Report said it best: Despite all of the talk about improving the customer experience, most financial institutions have […]

As marketers, we all rely heavily on email. It remains a key channel for communicating with prospects and customers. Given its importance, most marketers view each email address they acquire as quite valuable. But what do you do with unsubscribed and bounced email addresses?

How Invaluable Delivers 1-to-1 Experiences to Collectors Across Website and Email

November 20, 2018 by

Online shopping is fundamentally a personal experience. When you shop online as a consumer, you’re typically either looking for something to meet your specific needs right now (like when you’re trying to find something to help you clean the grout in your shower) or you’re looking for something that meets your specific preferences (like when you’re browsing a shoe sale for something that ca […]

Understanding Customer Data Platforms: 3 Levels of Functionality

Understanding Customer Data Platforms: 3 Levels of Functionality

November 16, 2018 by

Even though it may feel like everyone in marketing is talking about customer data platforms (CDPs) these days, the idea of the CDP as a martech category is still in its infancy. There’s a lot of confusion about how to categorize CDPs. Forrester’s Joe Stanhope mentioned in a recent Evergage webinar that he doesn’t consider “CDP” as a category on its own yet. He believes it needs a stronge […]

Why You Need to Combine A/B Testing and Personalization

Why You Need to Combine A/B Testing and Personalization

November 14, 2018 by

A/B testing has been a must-have for data-driven marketers for decades. With A/B testing, you stop making guesses about your digital experiences. Instead, you run tests and use real numbers to tell you what works and what doesn’t. But I would argue that traditional, one-size-fits-all A/B testing is a thing of the past. Let me take you through a simple, theoretical example to show you what I mean […]

5 Things Marketers Can Be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

November 8, 2018 by

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, which is why I write a Thanksgiving-themed post for the Evergage blog every year. I never cared for it much as a child, but as an adult I appreciate that this giftless holiday can bring my scattered family together. Plus, I love the food. Especially the mashed potatoes. And the pies. The one part of Thanksgiving I have never enjoyed is the tradition my […]

My Takeaways from Evergage’s Personalization Summit 2018: Realizing the Dream

November 2, 2018 by

This was my second consecutive year attending The Personalization Summit. When I attended last year as a new Evergage customer, the world of personalization seemed more like an emerging technology than something digital marketing was ready to embrace as a standard. What a difference 12 short months has made. The landscape has changed, and web marketing has evolved into a new iteration – one that […]

Webinar Recap – CDP Hype vs. Reality: A Discussion Between Experts

October 25, 2018 by

There are three things we know about the customer experience. First: Nothing should matter more to a business than its customers and future customers. There would not be a business without them.
