The great thing about analytics is that it tells you what is wrong. The hard thing is that you have to do the work to make things better. What if you could put that data to work automating some of those fixes? This would free you up to do more of the high value work, right?


This workshop will help you discover new ways of using analytics to power conversion rate optimization, improve customer experience, and win more business.


Key takeaways:

  • Understand the role of the analyst in identifying growth opportunities for the business
  • Identify metrics that drive customer experience and power conversion
  • Discover methods for putting that data to work automatically improving outcomes
  • This workshop is for analysts who want to leverage the power of content usage data.

This workshop is for analysts who are tired of grinding out reports that don’t capture the attention and passion of leadership.


This workshop is for thinkers who want to bring new approaches to translating data into powerful enablers of business transformation.


This workshop is for technical folks who want to understand how data can be integrated into platforms to drive performance improvements.


This workshop is for anyone who is tired of the same old numbers with the same old actions and wants to know what else is out there.

Biznology® Webinar with James Mathewson

We've got a new format for our webinars! Mike Moran is now hosting a live expert interviews. His first guest is James Mathewson, the program director of content marketing platforms at IBM. He writes frequently about keyword ontology -- the powerful tool for understanding keywords you should be building content around to attract prospects, engage with them, and convert them into loyal clients. 


Your audience doesn't always arrive at content that sells your product through a search. The vast majority of searches are for answers to questions or solutions to problems that are not obviously product related. If you provide the answers to the questions your target audiences ask, and if you help to solve their problems, many of them will trust you enough to try or buy your products when they're ready. But how do you provide the content that helps clients and prospects journey from generic questions about product categories to buying your products?  The answer is keyword ontology. 


A keyword ontology is a set of relationships between the keywords potential buyers use in search and the products or services they are ultimately looking for.


It helps you understand which words tend to go with which products, and how you can out think your competition to deliver the content your prospects need, in each stage of the buyer's journey. James will discuss why and how you should be creating a keyword ontology.


James Mathewson is IBM's Distinguished Technical Marketer for search. He has 20 years of experience in web editorial, content strategy, and SEO for large and small companies. A frequent speaker, lecturer and blogger, James has published more than 1600 articles and two books on how web technology and user experience change the nature of effective content.

Biznology® Webinar with Steve Zakur

What do you really know about your customer’s experience in site search? If you’re getting ready to migrate from one search engine to another, how do you know that the new engine will be better? These are tough questions to answer but there are methods and measurements that can ensure you’re not trapping your customers in the new search engine.

Most companies don’t measure site search well. They rely upon out of the box measurements that measure activity instead of outcomes. Nowhere is this problem more acute than when you move from one search engine to another.

• How do you exceed customer expectations if you don’t have an effective baseline?

• How do you know you’ve done the migration well if you don’t measure the gap before
and after?

• How do you ensure improvements in content and algorithms are effective?

A/B testing of the search engines is the answer.

In this free 30-minute Biznology® webinar, you’ll learn 5 strategies to measure site search effectively and how to apply those measurements when migrating from one search engine to another so that you can minimize the interruption in your customer’s experience and improve goal achievement.

Steve Zakur is a global technology executive who has spent the past decade solving complex business problems and growing technology businesses. Today, he focuses on improving customer journeys that go through site search and applying machine learning to improve marketing conversion rates.
