Why Now is the Time for Marketers to Innovate

2020 has forced brands to accelerate their digital transformations and find better, more efficient ways to reach their customers.

Why Real-Time Really Matters, in One-To-One Marketing

Staying relevant is harder than ever. Decades of irrelevant messages have trained customers to ignore us, and question the value of every outreach. By focusing on relevance, marketing and customer experience (CX) pros have begun to rebuild their customer relationships – but how relevant can they really be, making decisions with stale information, without understanding what’s really going on with each individual, right now? 

Join the team at Pega as we discuss why real-time really matters in one-to-one marketing. We’ll explore how disruptive companies are raising the customer experience bar right now, by leveraging AI to power millions of decisions per day, for hundreds of thousands of customers, across dozens of channels – all in less than 200 milliseconds.


Patrick Dwyer, Senior Customer Success Manager

How Rakuten Viki Creates Scalable, Cross-Channel Personalization Using Movable Ink + Braze

In today’s ever-changing landscape, it’s critical for marketers to leverage their martech stack to create the personalized experiences that customers want. But for teams lacking resources, activating that data to create scalable campaigns is challenging.

Rakuten Viki knew this challenge all too well. The video streaming service needed to effectively showcase a wide variety of programming to their audience in a relevant way to create a consistent, engaging experience across their mobile and email campaigns.

We’ll discuss how Rakuten Viki developed a cross-channel strategy leveraging partner integrations that elevated their customer experiences and reduced production time, along with tips and best practices for driving more conversions from mobile, email, and more.

Good to Great: Why Inclusive Marketing is the Answer

Just like good writers become great by reading voraciously and good directors become great by studying films from their contemporaries, good marketers become great by taking in inspiration from campaigns and the world around them. From this research, it becomes clear that a great marketing campaign is nothing without inclusivity. And the tools needed to build an inclusive campaign – a growth mindset that enables continuous learning, an endless stream of inspiration, and an eye for impact – are the same needed to create a truly great campaign. This session is your blueprint for building exactly that: a great marketing campaign that is creative, compelling, informed, and, more than anything, inclusive.
