Persuading Mobile Brains with Bart Schulz, Online Dialogue

Whether you want to admit it or not, your job as a marketer is to try to separate brains from their money. These days, somewhere in between you and that brain is a thumb controlling a (not-so) smartphone. Do you know how that 3 pounds of cerebral meat pays attention to and perceives those 5 inches of digitized glass? How it decides or rationalizes?

Based on the latest insights from psychology, behavioral economics and neuroscience, Bart will take you on a mind-blowing trip through your mobile customer’s brain. Filled with eye-opening a/b test results that will radically change the way you think about your customers, your websites and – of course your mobile presence, this session will show you how to most effectively influence the buying process of brains on the move.

Using Demographics & Psychographics to Unleash Your Conversion Potential with Janet Driscoll Miller, Marketing Mojo

Let’s face it: button colors, photo placement and form length testing can only go so far. What if you tapped into the core of who your visitor is – what he/she likes, what they are attracted to? Could you convert more visitors by personalizing the experience to the individual’s likes, preferences and personality? In this session, Janet will demonstrate how to use data pulled from social media advertising for landing page testing, using case study data to show how personalizing the appearance and messaging can improve conversion rates. Learn techniques for developing deep insight into an individual’s likes, titles and roles, etc. and using that information to get higher conversions and more sales.
