  • We all know the importance of measuring our activity and performance. That which doesn’t get measured, doesn’t get done!!Well, EPiServer offers some fantastic functionality which enables us to measure how effectively our website, and more specifically, content and marketing campaigns created in the website are performing.EPiServer allows us to quickly and easily build user funnels (key journeys we want to usher visitors through, exposing them to the most appropriate content, of course, personalised to their needs and on to conversion points such as orders, downloads, contact pages etc.) and to measure how effectively those funnels are performing, highlighting where the weaknesses are and where we are losing visitors. Additionally, we can create multiple versions of content and test which versions perform the best within these funnels. This empowers us to create a process of continuous improvement – tested against all, or a small % of, our website traffic.Importantly, these campaign measurement and optimisation tools extend into our social channels, just like the content editing and personalisation tools we looked at. This enables us to create fantastic, rich, engaging content and marketing campaigns in EPiServer, and to promote these on our websites and in our various social channels; to personalise them for each visitor to the website or social channel and then to effectively measure that user experience for optimisation and continuous improvement.
  • User Funnel including customer drop outs and alternative paths.We are currently working on another out of band release which will extend this reporting further allowing us to integrate deeper with GA and to monitor campaigns running in there.
  • EPiServer offers a range of feature rich and extremely user friendly content management tools which enable our customers to easily develop and publish really effective online content. Our customers can do so much more than publish standard content such as news articles and press releases. EPiServer empowers marketers to create truly engaging user experiences through features such as our drag and drop template editors. This will enable a user to create new campaign focused content and templates in minutes. Which can include custom content, controls, widgets and apps as well as of out of the box tools such as YouTube integration, image galleries, forms and content listings .Reusing blocks of content across different web pages or sites shouldn’t be time-consuming. By using Episerver products you can simply develop a content or funcational block onceand editors can re-use that across multiple pages or sites.
  • Mobile Pack allows a customer to reuse the existing content in the EPiServer platform an serve it to users on a handheld device, creating a more immediate and context-driven experience.

    • 20. Let’s Build!
    • 21. Start Small
    • 22. Pick one or two ofyour low-hanging fruit• Speed and iteration.• Don’t even try to get it perfect first time.• How about this for a start? – ”First time visitors should always be treated like first time customers” – ”Geography can be a simple start to targeting.” – ”What did they search for on Google before coming to our site” – “Let’s personalise banner content on 5 key landing pages”
    • 23. Develop Personalisation Personas• Think about the unique needs of different users – existing customers, different demographics, prospects, partners, job-seekers, the press• Think about the context they may visit your online presence – awareness, research, purchase, customer service, directions etc.?• and think about how you can use your knowledge about them to serve targeted content
    • 24. Personas
    • 25. Use what you know • You probably know more than you think: •Gender Profile •Age •Birthday.... •Pages they viewed / E-mails opened History •Products they’ve bought •Events they’ve attended Community •Interests •Level of engagement and sentiment activities Clickstream •Gives a good idea of their intent •Geography IP •Company •Industry

    • 36. Personalise Social Interactions 39
    • 37. The Goal?
    • 38. The tactics• Iterative Improvement• Personalise before you have a comprehensive profile – Start simple• Look for more intent indicators – Onsite search – Clickstreams – Basket or form abandonment – Social sharing – Reviews and ratings – E-mail clickthroughs• Test, Measure and Optimise everything....• Consider new ways of gathering even more data…
    • 39. Branded Communities• “Facebook in a box” – Member Profiles, Walls, Inbox – Groups – Messaging – Image and Video Galleries – News, Events, Calendars – Blogs, Forums, Editorial – Documents – Collaboration Areas• Blend published and user generated content• Data Mining Capability enhances personalised marketing opportunity
    • 40. “There’s been a 35% increasein unique visitors coming to thesite, year-on-year. Onlinerevenues are up too, with anincrease of 46%.“ Elliott Pritchard New Media Manager, P&O Cruises
    • 41. The Challenge
    • 42. The Challenge• New to a lot of companies• Unclear ownership and allocation of resource• No clear metrics• IT bottlenecks• Multiple systems• Limited data• A champion to carry it forward
    • 43. Start with clear goals and metrics• Establish these, write them down and get buy-in and involvement from everyone that matters• Things like: – Boost conversion rate by 40% – Return on investment (ROI) of 50% within six months – Increase monthly new lead supply by 30%
    • 44. Assemble the right team• Web personalisation should be owned by the overall website owner – often marketing – but you’ll also need the involvement of the people who own each important section of the site.• People like: – The web editors, Community owners, Product management, Sales, Customer service, Technical support, Human resources…
    • 45. Use as few software systems as possible • The Content management System is the logical place for driving personalisation (at least for us) • Since: – It’s where content lives. – It’s where the day-to-day web editors work. – It controls where your content meets your customers. – It’s already delivering dynamic pages. – It integrates easily with CRM and other data sources.
    • 46. Make the workflow simple• The whole idea behind personalisation is to be responsive to your market. So start simple, learn and refine over time.• Like this: – Think about your segments – Identify opportunities to personalize – Create a rule – Test it – Go live – Analyse the results, tweak and repeat
    • 47. Drivers for Perfect Personalisation• Consent Registration and profile management, social opt-in• Control Enable customers to control the level of personalisation• Context Use device, location, entry point, search term to drive personalisation• Incentives Tangible benefits for sharing the data you need as well as delivering the personalised experience
