1:30- 2:00: Convert More Visitors to Customers – Secrets to High Impact Targeting, by Alon Waks at LivePerson
Best-in-class companies know the secret to converting high value visitors: You need to engage them at the moment they are most likely to convert, while they are still on your site.

Companies are re-inventing engagement strategies by moving away from treating website visitors with a “one size fits all” approach.

These companies are identifying high impact visitors the moment they click on the web site.

The secret to their success is in identifying, segmenting and targeting those who are high impact — shoppers with high shopping cart values, price comparison shoppers, shoppers who want to buy more but have questions — and engage each differently to convert them into lifetime customers.

Best-in-class companies who are able to engage live when the stakes are high have successfully converted more of their existing visitors by at least 20%, while increasing average order value by 35%.

Get your business ready for high stakes engagement today.
2:00-3:00: Increasing Consumer Relevance in Today’s Multi-Platform Digital Age
Today, broadcasters are challenged with increasing their relevance to consumers.

To do this, new business models must be created which combine linear TV with new products, platforms and distribution models.

While attention has been focused on the rise of non-traditional TV consumption such as online and on-demand services, consumption is growing across all platforms.

The primary question is how do you attract consumers across multiple platforms and unlock value and growth?

Some of the questions we'll pose include:
● Are you the "new" CDO, or have you been in place for a few years? How has your role changed, if at all?
● How are you using technology to meet your mission's goals?
● How can you get more data from your community, in order to use it to make better decisions, and more deeply engage your base of core supporters?
● How do you innovate in your own role, as well as in your organization?
