  • My name is Samuel Chatelain and I am going to present to you the marketing plan for the Asset Management Portfolio. I will explain how we can implement an integrated marketing strategy to match its portfolio offering to customer needs and trends, and how it can sustain its competitive position within its marketplace and sector.I will also detail a marketing strategy for an event in North America and discuss how email marketing and branding can be cost-effective to promote this event.
  • The best way to deliver brand value is to communicate the brand proposition for its asset management events portfolio through an integrated marketing strategy. Indeed, the brand differentiation of networking and learning from expert professionals will certainly appeal better than senior decision-makers cluttered in their day-to-day office routine.
  • As you may already know, a successful strategy starts by setting achievable objectives and a realistic timescale. Depending of the event size – large, medium or small – there is an event cycle of between 24 to 36 weeks which goes through three distinct phases: i.e. planning, selling, delivering. It usually takes two thirds of any single event cycle to promote an event, for at least 16 to 24 weeks. The key objectives for a successful event?To survive: ensure event sponsorships and attendance goals and meet budgetsTo succeed: repeat business, build brand equity and enhance marketing channel reachTo prosper: enhance customer experience and grab new business opportunities
  • Improving branding and increasing share of voice on new media and digital channels are two of the five routes to achieve differentiation and greater marketing mix performance. Another one could be to launch new events faster.Some of these strategic recommendations will lead into budgeting campaigns across online and offline channels with above and below the line advertising and marketing activities.
  • The PriceA key task is to set the KPIs and the budget targets in terms of attendance goals; if not, in terms of revenue generated. The asset management portfolio has 5 events based in London, 1 in Singapore and another 1 in New York City for one or two days. Peer-to-peer networking and learning experience is optimal with two thirds of participants being visitors. Yet there is an opportunity to maximise sponsor-to-visitor ratio at maybe 1:15, instead of 1:50. Due to the limited and partial availability of financial or accounting information, I won’t cover today: cost of sales, overheads, sales income or operational margin. I will, however, look at marketing expenses based on average visitor incomes for the North American’s event later on. Having said that, both skimming and penetration pricing strategies can be used alternatively depending on products and customer segments.
  • The market placeTheAsset Management industry landscape is more crowded and complicated but very much capable to tackle the challenges ahead. However there are short and long term threats and opportunities to identify.Long term challenges:Pricing on traditional products could decline by up to 20%, putting pressure on profit margins. New regulations are been applied (e.g. UCIT IV, AIFMD) with tremendous effects on the industry on itself (e.g. single EU market, reporting, tariffs, etc.).Short term challenges:Sales processes move to a more institutionalised and consultative wholesaling modes with co-marketing relationships. 30% of earnings will be derived from new products, leading to new and innovative approach to third-party distribution and joint production
  • The PeopleTo deliver on the changing needs of the retail and institutional investors, a wider range of players enters the industry while scale will intensify:the big firms will get bigger albeit a measured pace of M&A. Amongst others, hedge funds and private equity managers are the ones on the rise with strong growth opportunities.
  • The Places of distributionBuyers or solution providers can be reached through a number of channels, both online and offline. The value chain of intermediaries will relay key messages, increase visibility to customers and raise backing of key supporters and sponsors. Themarketing campaigns and other promotional activities –from PR, advertising and viral marketing to push discounts and early birds to targeted audiences, will ensure timely and effective development and distribution of publicity, news and feature articles through the distribution tunnels. A priority will be to develop and maintain good working relationships with all external stakeholders depending on their level of interest and their level of influence. Some will need to be kept satisfied and informed; others to be monitored and managed closely.
  • The Promotion MixThe marketing strategy, along with itsmedia buying plan,would need to be integrated across multiple channels to connect better with potential customers. Meanwhile existing customers, sponsors and other event ambassadors will also exercise an important part of the retention strategy. The delivery of this integrated marketing strategy will require the use of project management techniques to deliver each element of the promotion mix across multiple channels: direct and digital marketing; relationship management and social media; advertising, PR and media partnerships; dynamic web content, link-building and viral marketing.
  • The strategic communication plan will aim to increase public awareness of the events by stressing the value of a networking and learning experience.By working on an average spend of £1,300 per visitors and their profiling characteristics, promotional price offers will be planned upon availability, how well each event sells and depending on the life value of customers.We will then agree on communications objectives and schedule the promotional pricing recommendations.
  • Creative messagesThe advertising and acquisition campaigns will start at least 20 to 32 weeks prior each event to ensure an optimal customer experience monitored on a quarterly basis. The retention activities are then organised in line with the advertising and PPC. Each stream will follow a story line and have a different key message tailored to each event and specific target audiences.Key messages- The unique selling proposition for brand advertising could be “putting the best way of networking on the table”. - The value proposition for retention could be focusing on the fact that “it’s good to talk and network at the conference”.
  • Performance measurementMoreover,we will look at evaluating pipeline performance in order to optimise each marketing channelby tracking, monitoring and measuring marketing KPIs, over current and historic event cycles. We will then develop and use marketing metrics and accounting measures of the performance of specific marketing activities against objectives to evaluate performance achieved, compared with the original business case.Theuse of the balanced scorecard framework will ultimately leverage linkage between performances at different levels: financial, customer perspective, internal business process, innovation & learning. Thus it facilitates new planning, forecasting and budgeting when and where required. KPIs could include:Increase Leads Generated, Conversion RatioIncrease customer acquisition across new and existing customersIncrease revenue & no of sponsor package sold Increase customer retention levelIncrease (Referrers) Unique Visitors and CTR
  • Having planned for the whole Asset Management events portfolio, let’s develop our marketing strategy for the TSAM in North America further.
  • The key themes of Asset Management Portfolio events have been extended to the European, Asian and Northern American markets and held in one of the few international financial centres across the world. The North American conference is no exception and will take place in June 2012 in New-York City for one day. It competes for instance against the New York Forum and could be organised alternatively between NYC and Chicago as an opportunity to focus on different but similar US financial clutters. The US financial system is mainly rule-based as opposed to the British principles-based system or the newly regulated single EU market. Famous US rules include the Sarbox (seizure) or Glass-Stealgall (split-up) regulations. These differences could trigger strong interests from asset managers who’d like to grab overseas opportunities and offer greater choice to their investors.While London has a global reach, New-York and Chicago have also the opportunity to reach the world and the Americas. The American market is mainly accessible from London in the afternoon. The repartition of visitors and sponsors will scale from local, near regional to overseas: 40-60% local; 20-30% regional and 10-20% overseas at the best.
  • Market growthEmerging markets are strong growth areas (e.g. Brazil and Mexico). Hedge funds, venture capital, and private equity firms currently reshape and redefine the industry. Insurers, investment banks and pension consultants will play a broader roles for retail and institutional investors than theydo today. And banks are developing new structured and takeout solutions to compete with insurance firms.
  • Knowing the value and the market potential of each customer segment can decide which marketing strategy to apply. However, the value and potential of each type of users needs to be balanced from the perspective of the sponsors. Which visitors want to meet which sponsors and vice versa. Do investors and asset managers need to be invited? Policy-makers and decision-makers? Do we only get asset managers and solution providers to attend?As a general planning rule we would consider the following:Target and grow share of wallet in New-York and Chicago, relevant users, ladpsed and intenters as well as fund managers and insurersRetain, reward and build advocacy with testers, purchasers and frequent users, pension consultants and investment banks but also look at attracting key Brazilian and Mexican playersInform and manage other type of potential or existing buyers as well as reach other players in Canada and MERCOSUR area.
  • Knowing who to target directly and indirectly, we can then schedule push and pull promotional activities to deliver on target. Starting first with an initial planning phase with key stakeholder consultations, we then look at developing the media plan and continue by putting together digital and direct marketing activities which will be intensified by the use of account management techniques and greater press liaison. Finally from 2 to 6 weeks prior to the North American event we use fast response and viral marketing activities to build-up customer intimacy. During the event we look at maximising the customer experience with the organisation of roundtables.
  • The marketing budget is built upon 20% of revenue generated by visitors. Initial outgoings can be secured with an initial sponsoring contract of similar value. Standard sponsor package prices could start as little as £40K, £65K or £130K depending on the scale of the event.It has been designed for an event of about 250 visitors. Since an average visitor spends £1,300, we can anticipate the following revenue and marketing costs.Medium size event: revenue: £325,000 (250); proportion allocated for marketing spends £65,000 (20%) - contingency (10% or £6,500) = £58,500 [Large-scale event: £650,000 (500); £130,000 (13,000) £117,000][Small event: £195,000 (150); £40,000 (£2,000)  £38,000]Direct response marketing activities in the form of email marketing and direct marketing are key channels to promote this event due to the seniority of B2B target audiences (i.e. over 2/3 of the budget), with the rising share in the budget, of new media and digital channels, along side, to more traditional account management techniques. Ultimately the response and conversion rates for each channel will influence resources and budget allocations.1/3 - 31.9% for email marketing (£18,653)1/3 - 30.7% for direct mail (£17,926) [-½ (-£5,918)  20.5% (£12,008)]1/4 - 26.8% for digital, advertising and new media (£15,660) [+1/4 (+£5,918)  36.9% (£21,578)]1/10 - 10.6% for account management (£6,200)For sponsor and supporter acquisition, account management and direct selling (e.g. webex, skype) will have a greater share of importance while advertising and new media would need to be carefully segmented or shared between buyers and solution providers. Direct marketing and email marketing will lead on generating sales leads while direct selling will rise in importance for delivering greater value to sponsors.
  • Email promotion represents a third of the marketing budget for visitor acquisition and retention. It plays an important role in generating leads for sponsor acquisition. We’ll see how we can try to satisfy all potential users and sponsors with an ad hoc 1-2-1 email marketing platform.
  • Email marketing broadcasts will start from 29 to 17 weeks prior the event with about 20 email-shots sent fortnightly or weekly plus a monthly newsletter.The email-shots will range from an event preview, last chance early bird offers to a review of the event. They will cover a number of updates to include new speakers or topics, sponsors and key findings from consultations with key participants.
  • Key metrics to assess the relevance of an email subject line is the click-to-open rate. It varies depending on when and to whom it has been sent to.
  • Likewise, the email content is sanctioned by the click-through-rate. Many different messages increase confusion in the mind of the recipient and reduce their interest. Usually a message has to make an impact within 8 seconds. After the recipient loses interest. Thus it’s recommended to keep one message and one call to action to obtain the greatest impact. We’ve listed here key lead-ins and lead-outs for each potential emails focusing mainly on the ‘so what’ and the ‘how’.
  • HTML emails are most often linked with relevant data marketing for greater customer intimacy. Using different layout, visuals and contents will increase relevance for the recipient. Because of the automation processes, the use of one template and a few customer bands, lead generation goes faster than when using a static content that fits all.
  • Here are some simulated results using either a static content or a data driven content. The click-to-open rates are similar because the subject lines were similar. But the click-through-rates improve with data relevance significantly as the content is more relevant to each recipient. In this simulation there is an up-lift of 150% for the click-through rate. Hopefully in line with the increasing costs of using a data-driven platform.
  • As a result, the conversion rate almost doubles between static and data-driven content.Instead of receiving 8 qualified leads for every 100 clicks there are now 15.The challenge is with such « personalisation » we might clutter potential and existing customers in their own opinions without enabling them or us in catching new opportunities or simply new ideas.
  • Now let’s add social media to the equation and see if there is an uplift. But first let’s quickly discuss about the costs/benefits to embrace social media.Two statistics:80% of purchase usually start by a research if not a referral. 93% of buyers expect companies to have social media presenceThere are five main reasons. Social media is the new PR and an important tool to increase organic search, whilst it improves customer data relevance and increases lead conversions. And leads from social media focus on quality not quantity. The costs of social mediaThe costs of social media derive usually from wasted resources for knowledge management or customer service while an outreach campaign would impact negatively on a brand reputation. But when the benefits surpass the costs, a brand gains in intimacy with its customers: they won’t easily switch to the competition. The most active users will become sales champions at no extra cost and generate tremendous word-of-mouth effects.
  • Social sharing increases viral marketing campaign effects. Before, an ‘email-to-a-colleague’ campaign targeted the few people the recipient knew they might also be interested in an event. Now, an auto-generated post that says “I’ll be at this event on that day” or “this is a must-attend event” will reach the wider audience of its virtual network.
  • The results are eloquent: for 1,000 emails opened, 3.25% of the initial recipients (or 13% of those who opened the emails) will share it with their like-minded community. The key message of the email will be seen five times more than the intended 4,000 recipients initially emailed.Implications for team or network discountConsequently, the life cycle value of 2nd level connection customers is of greater importance. What is the value of a 1st connection customer bringing only £1,300 in revenue? Or, another customer raising £13,000 worth of income, from ten 2nd connection consumers?
  • Thank you for listening. Any questions?
