Marketing to the People You Know

Having someone’s contact details is not just an opportunity but also a responsibility.  Whether they are a customer, fan or prospective customer, there is no excuse for interrupting them unless our message is relevant – given everything they have shared about themselves. This track is about understanding your known audience so well that you can orchestrate outbound communication in a way that bridges marketing and customer experience.

Session 1:
Database & Cross-Channel Journey Management

How do you make best use of the data that your customer has given you permission to use? Hear how you can overcome the challenges of bringing together multiple databases and sources of customer data – especially CRM systems. Learn how this data can be leveraged to enhance and augment the customer journey across all channels and touch points.

For email, direct and database marketers.

iag Case Study: Enabling Cross Channel Marketing Through Data 

Presented by:
Brent Burgess, Head of Digital, CRM and Group Marketing Technology, iag
Anthony Marquette, Marketing Automation Platform Lead, iag
iag has ambitious plans to lead the digital transformation of the insurance industry by becoming a customer led, data-driven organisation. Having a deeper understanding of the customer will enable iag to deliver products and services that meet their customers' needs and ensure these new offerings are delivered through the right channel at the right time with the right message.

By undertaking a Direct Marketing Transformation project, iag now has the capability to deliver marketing campaigns in days, and in some cases hours. Data and the "single view of customer" has been the foundational capability that has enabled iag to effectively measure marketing campaigns as well as target customers with highly personalised offers across online and offline channels.

Delivering on these outcomes involved bringing together a cross-functional team across marketing, data and technology and applying lean/agile principles. This delivery approach, combined with the data strategy and single view of customer, continues to broadened the possibilities at iag including off-site targeting, personalisation in addition to the benefits of cross-channel marketing.
