Why eRetailers Should Turn to Experimentation Rather Than Surge Moments to Boost Business Growth

Amazon Prime Day is a bigger event with each passing year, drawing the participation (or competition) of ever more eCommerce retailers who find the potential Sales lift too tempting to pass up. In this year’s shopping fest, Amazon ratcheted up its approach by upping the day of deals and offering one-day shipping. Much like Black Friday, the ‘holiday’ famed for bringing retailers out of the red and into the black just before the end of the year, the 2019 Prime Day spree registered as a magnitude 8.0 on the retail Richter…

All too often, they become enamored with the attraction and analysis part and put…

The Wrong Way to Buy MarTech

I remember the very first time I met with a director of a marketing operations (MO) group. It was in 2009 and I was blown away that there was an entire department dedicated to running and optimizing technology for the purposes of marketing. In this case, the MO group was in a B2C environment.  I certainly had never seen anything like this in the B2B world. Fast forward to 2018 when a dedicated MO team is fundamental to the transformation of B2B marketing from a cost center to a profit center. Technology plays a huge role in…

Why Mobile Growth Is Actually About Retention: How Optimizing In-App Experience Leads To 2x Faster Growth

Trying to grow your active user base is a lot like trying to fill up a leaky bucket. The bigger the hole, the faster you have to add more water and the more time and resources you have to spend doing so. And boy are apps leaky. 80% of all app users churn within 90 days. At $1.64 per install, an app losing 80% of its users in the first 90 days is actually paying over $8 per user that will still be around next quarter.  So when asking “how do I grow faster?” the simple answer of “figure out how to economically acquire more…
