Today’s consumers are demanding: they have become more unforgiving of a poor customer experience and expect interactions on their desktop and mobile devices to be responsive, intuitive,
and easy to use. Marketers understand that delivering the most relevant experience is the key to gaining continued satisfaction and loyalty from their digital consumers. Oftentimes, however, when it comes to marketing to consumers there are two dynamics. On one hand you have what consumers say they want out of a customer experience. On the other hand, there is what they actually receive. What they want are experiences that are personalized, contextually relevant, and consistent— regardless of online or offline channel or lifecycle stage. What they too often get, however, are experiences that are disconnected, not contextually relevant, and inconsistent across channels and lifecycle stages.
We surveyed consumers in the US and the UK to learn more about the changing trends in online versus in-store shopping. How frequently do they shop? Which channels do they use? What’s their motivation? This report details how everything from income to age to advances in technology have influenced the behaviors of consumers today.
What you'll learn:
• Do consumers prefer to shop in stores or online?
• Which sources do they rely on to learn about new products?
• Are they shopping for fun or out of necessity?
• How does having children in the household affect shopping behavior?
Today's tech candidates are actively interacting and sharing their work on different websites, networks, and forums. As more of these channels surface, recruiters have the advantage to connect with more people in real-time, build a community based on shared interests, and to develop their employer identity among candidates.
This webinar will cover recruiting on Slack, Reddit, AngelList, and Meetup – a communication tool, aggregated news site and forum, Q&A social network, startup platform, and online portal for interest groups. Michelle Lusen, senior corporate recruiter at Slack, will join us for the webinar to share her best practices for connecting with candidates.
In this webinar, you'll learn:
How to establish rapport and develop a Slack community of candidates using private and public communication channels
Where to look on Reddit and AngelList to find people most interested in hearing about your open role
Tactics to identify and engage with domain experts on Meetup

With physical and online information security always growing stronger and harder to crack, fraudsters gravitate toward the weakest link in your security—your contact center and voice channels. For many years, our annual fraud reports have shown that fraudsters increasingly exploit the phone channel. Fraud rates continue to increase every year, and this year is no different.
Between 2016 (1 in 937 calls) and 2017 (1 in 638 calls), the overall voice channel fraud rate increased by 47%, continuing on the upward trend from last year 113% increase.1 From 2013 through 2017 we have seen the fraud rate climb over 350%, with no signs of slowing down. It is important to note, that some verticals (i.e. Retail) experience even higher fraud rates than shown here.

Professional buyers increasingly expect a hassle-free, fully digital experience with visibility into pricing.

Across industries, marketing increasingly plays a critical role in company growth. After all, the top expectation of CEOs polled by Gartner, in the 2014 Gartner Executive Summary for CMO Leadership, Accountability, and Credibility within the C-suite, is that the CMO would not only improve, but also own the customer experience by 2016. Combine this with the fact that digital is quickly becoming the de facto medium for customer interactions, and it’s easy to see why it’s essential that CMOs build an effective, efficient, and scalable marketing technology (aka MarTech) stack.
