STORY
Stefanie Nastou
Vice President Marketing
TeamViewer
W
elcome to the realm of TeamViewer, a
global technology powerhouse shaping the
digital landscape. A world where technology
seamlessly connects us all, where remote access, device
management and even controlling industrial machines
are at your fingertips.
In this dynamic tech environment, Stefanie Nastou
stands as an expert in the field. As the Vice President of
Marketing, she's a data-driven marketing executive
with an astonishing track record. Stefanie excels in
building brand equity, establishing performance-driven
marketing programs and assembling world-class teams.
Her impact extends beyond marketing—she's a trusted
advisor to C-Suite executives, contributing to strategic
decision-making.
With a wide range of specialties, including B2B and B2C
sales and marketing, digital transformation, brand
development, and more, her journey is not just about
business; Stefanie is also a children's book author,
reflecting her multifaceted nature.
As a vital cog in TeamViewer's marketing engine,
Let's explore Stefanie's marketing strategies to create a
future in the digital realm bright and promising!
From Pitch to Promotion
Stefanie's career journey has been outstanding. From
the very beginning, she found herself in the fast-paced
world of small boutique agencies. Here, she learned the
ropes, wearing many hats, from sales to collaborating
with designers and creative directors. "I have had a truly
amazing journey and have been so lucky to be surrounded
by such incredible leaders and colleagues throughout every
phase of my career," she reflects.
One of the pivotal moments in Stefanie's career was the
guidance she received from mentors on both the
agency and client sides. Their insights helped her
navigate the agency world and honed her sales skills. As
she moved into the realm of B2B software, this
knowledge proved invaluable. "The agency experience
laid the foundation for my sales and marketing journey,"
Stefanie notes.
Over the years, Stefanie has worked at a diverse range
of companies, from startups to industry giants. This
breadth of experience has given her a unique
perspective on marketing and business development.
"I've seen it all, from the ground up," she says.
In today's business landscape, Stefanie observes that
marketing has transformed into a data-driven revenue
engine. "Marketing is no longer just about communication
and brand management," she emphasizes. "It's an
extension of sales and the lines between the two are
blurred.”
In her view, the role of marketing has grown even more
significant, with a staggering 80% of the B2B buyer's
journey taking place online before any interaction with
a sales representative. "Marketing now leverages AI and
algorithms to deliver the right content to the right buyer at
the right moment," Stefanie explains.
Throughout her career, Stefanie has led global teams in
campaigns, digital marketing and business
development. Her key to success? A relentless focus on
data and continuous learning. "Data is our lifeline," she
states emphatically. "It shapes our strategy and drives
marketing agility.”
She encourages marketers to dive into the data, analyze
what's working and what's not while also pivoting as
needed to meet targets and deliver ROI. Stefanie's
commitment to learning and innovation has been
nurtured by the companies she's been a part of, like
TeamViewer, where a culture of creativity leads to
significantly greater outcomes.
Empowering the Marketing Troops
In the dynamic realm of modern marketing,
collaboration takes center stage. Stefanie is an expert in
the field and she shares invaluable strategies for
cultivating a collaborative environment that drives
success.
Be yourself, be
transparent and stand up
not only for yourself but
for others.
It's crucial to communicate the vision, mission
and goals clearly to your team. This
alignment helps them understand their role
in achieving the right outcomes.
Immerse yourself in sales and customer
support to hear directly from customers.
"First and foremost," Stefanie emphasizes, "it's crucial to
communicate the vision, mission and goals clearly to your
team. This alignment helps them understand their role in
achieving the right outcomes." When everyone knows
their part, the path to success becomes clearer.
Open and transparent communication is another
cornerstone. Stefanie insists on giving every team
member a voice. "We encourage a space where ideas flow
freely," she says. This culture of openness fosters
creativity and problem-solving.
Collaborative ideation sessions, whether virtual or in
person, play a pivotal role. "Everyone participates,
providing input," Stefanie notes. "Then, we shortlist the
best ideas to pilot or test." Setting clear objectives
upfront ensures that actionable outcomes emerge.
Empowering the team to make decisions is vital.
"Remind them that you trust their judgment," Stefanie
advises. "They've been hired for a reason. It's an ongoing
process, reassuring them that mistakes are part of the
learning curve.”
Testing is at the core of Stefanie's approach. "Marketing
is about testing and then scaling what works," she
emphasizes. "We follow a strict policy of A/B testing
everything." This data-driven approach ensures
continuous improvement.
Celebrating even small wins is crucial. Stefanie believes
in recognizing and rewarding her team for their
collaborative efforts. "It's about showcasing the great
work that results from teamwork," she says proudly.
As TeamViewer operates in a rapidly evolving
technology landscape, Stefanie sheds light on fostering
innovation in marketing strategies. "The martech stack is
essential," she explains. "To reach the right audience with
the right message, you need the right technology." Staying
updated on emerging platforms and technologies that
integrate with the CRM is key.
Understanding customers and their pain points is
equally vital. Stefanie's advice? "Immerse yourself in sales
and customer support to hear directly from customers."
Knowing their challenges and how their businesses
evolve ensures marketing evolves with them. The
customer feedback loop is the foundation of a robust
marketing strategy.
Exploring new content channels is another part of
Stefanie's innovation strategy. "Know where your
audience goes for information," she advises. For instance,
if you're targeting developers, find the platforms and
forums they frequent. Peer group forums provide
insights into buyer behavior, shaping the marketing
strategy accordingly.
Marketing's Dynamic Duo
Being a seasoned marketer at TeamViewer, Stefanie
shares her insights on the importance of aligning
marketing with corporate objectives. "Your company's
goals are the compass for your long-term marketing
strategy," she emphasizes. Understanding the
competitive landscape and emerging market trends is
equally vital for agility and innovation.
Stefanie's approach includes the creation of a "tiger
team" capable of swift responses to market shifts. "Agile
marketing is all about building short sprints to deliver
competitive offerings quickly," she explains. This nimble
mindset is ingrained in TeamViewer's culture, adapting
seamlessly to the ever-changing tech landscape.
In Stefanie's world, marketing isn't just about
promotion—it's about staying in sync with corporate
objectives and being ready to pivot in the face of
competition. This agile approach is the cornerstone of
success in today's fast-paced tech industry.
Comprehending the Crucial Elements
Understanding your target audience is at the heart of
effective marketing, as Stefanie emphasizes. "To
resonate with your audience," she advises, "you must dive
deep into their world—understand their pain points,
preferences and goals.”
Segmentation is a key strategy, where you tailor
messages to specific personas, industries and roles.
Stefanie believes in crafting messages that align
directly with customers' challenges and desired
outcomes. "The more tailored, the better," she says,
"including the value proposition and the complete package
your product or service offers.”
Choosing the right channels is vital, ensuring content
reaches audiences at the right moment in their journey.
"Know where they research," Stefanie points out.
Personalized content also plays a pivotal role in B2B
marketing, creating a personal connection.
When targeting specific industries, Stefanie advocates
showcasing use cases and customer success stories
tailored to that sector. "Prospective customers want
assurance that you understand their unique challenges and
business goals," she explains. For TeamViewer's
augmented reality solution, xPick, the approach differs
for warehousing and logistics compared to the
pharmaceutical industry. Personalization is the key to
success in these diverse landscapes.
Crunching the Numbers
"Data is marketing's lifeline," Stefanie underscores,
emphasizing its role as a growth engine. To ensure
everyone is on the same page, Stefanie advises aligning
core KPIs across teams. "Success should be crystal clear
by year-end, agreed upon by sales, marketing and finance.”
Daily dashboard scrutiny is a must and swift action is
the name of the game. Stefanie champions testing and
agile marketing for seizing market opportunities. For
instance, in response to a healthcare compliance
regulation, marketing swiftly launches a campaign
aligning with the new requirements. Data's purpose is
clear—inform short and long-term strategies, and
optimize results in real-time.
Turning the Tables
"The software industry remains male-dominated,"
acknowledges Stefanie, but she proudly highlights the
shifting landscape in marketing. "TeamViewer is a strong
advocate of gender diversity throughout the organization.”
Stefanie's advice to fellow women is clear: "Be yourself,
be transparent and stand up not only for yourself but for
others." She laments the persistence of women second-
guessing themselves and lacking support to progress. In
her view, senior executive women can step up as
mentors and advocates.
Stefanie firmly believes in the power of women
supporting women, whether in the boardroom or
beyond. "Strength lies in numbers," she asserts.
Encouraging this camaraderie is essential for breaking
down barriers and achieving gender equality in the
software industry. It's a vision Stefanie and
TeamViewer champion passionately.
Course to Success
Mentorship is a deep passion for Stefanie, fueled by the
profound impact of her own mentors. "My mentors
shaped the leader I am today," she shares, filled with
gratitude. Her experience has ignited a desire to pave
the way for the next generation of leaders.
Stefanie's mentorship philosophy is refreshingly simple.
"It doesn't need to be a formal program," she asserts.
Leading a team is, in itself, a form of mentorship. "You
lead by example," she points out, drawing parallels with
parenting, as a mom of two boys.
Active and empathetic listening is Stefanie's
cornerstone for effective mentorship. She believes that
most mentees seek feedback to grow, emphasizing the
importance of honesty and guidance. "Let them know
you've got their back," she encourages, offering support
in building learning paths to skill improvement.
Shaping future leaders as a mentor is a deeply
rewarding experience, Stefanie attests. Her message to
leaders is clear: "Participate in formal mentorship
programs if your organization offers them." In Stefanie's
world, mentorship isn't just a duty; it's an opportunity
to inspire and guide the leaders of tomorrow.
Marketing in the Fast Lane
"As a marketer, embracing new technologies is crucial,"
Stefanie emphasizes. She points to AI as a game-
changer, enabling predictive analytics to forecast
trends and behaviors, ultimately leading to data-driven
decision-making. "It enhances the customer experience,"
she notes.
Participate in formal
mentorship programs if
your organization offers
them.
AI chatbots and virtual assistants, in Stefanie's view,
play a pivotal role. They swiftly troubleshoot issues and
provide answers, elevating overall customer
satisfaction. Stefanie shares a real-life example—her
son's quick resolution of an online exam error through a
chatbot, enabling him to continue his exam within
minutes.
Stefanie envisions vast potential in AR and VR
applications, particularly in retail and real estate
marketing. She illustrates her point with a scenario of
property hunting in Italy. "With VR glasses, you can
immerse yourself in a virtual tour of a home," she suggests.
This technology empowers customers to explore
properties remotely, offering a unique and immersive
experience.
Balancing the Scales
"Family first is my mantra," Stefanie declares
passionately. Despite her demanding career that often
takes her around the world, she's unwavering in her
commitment to family. "I've never missed my kids'
important moments," she proudly states. Even if it means
catching a red-eye flight, Stefanie ensures she's there
for birthdays, soccer games, graduations, and school
plays.
FaceTime in a New York cab? That's just one example of
Stefanie's dedication to staying connected with her kids
while on the go. "Balance is essential," she emphasizes.
Holiday breaks are sacred, a time for digital detox, yoga,
nature walks with her dog, and podcasts that fuel her
thirst for learning and inspiration.
Baking is another passion that brings warmth to her
home. "There's no better smell than a freshly baked pie,"
she muses. Amidst it all, Stefanie's husband serves as
her constant sounding board, helping maintain that
delicate work-life balance. "When I'm working, I'm full-on
in the zone," she shares. Decompression and family time
are vital to preserving that balance.
Marketing Masterstroke
"I've worked on countless campaigns," Stefanie reflects,
"but the most memorable ones showcase customer stories
and their transformative journeys." These campaigns, she
notes, don't even mention the product—instead, they
focus solely on the customer's narrative and the
profound changes in their customers' experiences.
In Stefanie's view, what's common among these
campaigns is their ability to forge connections. "These
stories create emotional bonds that resonate with the
audience," she says. Viewers immediately associate the
brand with enabling those transformative outcomes.
Stefanie points out that this approach is widespread in
the B2B software realm, where customers' real-world
experiences take center stage.
A Legacy in the Making
"I hope I've paved the way for the next generation of
leaders," Stefanie reflects, her commitment to
mentorship clear. Her vision extends to a legacy project
with a positive environmental impact.
Guidance and support remain at the forefront of her
mission. Stefanie aims to nurture creativity and
innovation among emerging marketing professionals,
equipping them with the age of generative AI and other
disruptive technologies.
Stefanie underscores the significance of staying abreast
of industry trends, including marketing automation, AI
predictive data analytics, augmented and virtual reality,
AI chatbots, and AI voice search. She encourages
marketers to grasp how AI can deliver highly
personalized customer experiences, ensuring they stay
competitive in an ever-evolving digital landscape.
Prospective
customers want
assurance that you
understand their
unique challenges
and business
goals.

ou know how quickly technology and trends move
Ythese days. In the world of marketing, things are
changing faster than ever. As a marketer, keeping up
with the latest and greatest trends is critical to staying ahead
of the competition and best serving your customers. Some of
the biggest trends emerging now are in digital marketing,
social media, content creation, and more.
In this article, we're going to dive into some of the hottest
marketing trends you need to know to improve your strategy,
better engage your audience, and drive more business in
today's fast-paced digital world. From the rise of influencer
marketing to the importance of video to the next wave of
social platforms, you'll get the inside scoop on the trends
shaping marketing's future.
The Rise of Influencer Marketing
Influencer marketing is one of the fastest-growing trends in
marketing. Brands are harnessing the power of social media
to influence people with large followings on platforms like
Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. These influencers have built
a high level of trust with their followers, and when they
promote a product, their followers listen.
According to a recent study, over 90% of consumers trust
recommendations from influencers more than traditional
ads. That's why more and more brands are collaborating with
influencers. They send the influencers free products or pay
them to promote their goods and services to their followers.
For influencer marketing to be effective, brands need to find
influencers who are a great match for their target audience.
The influencer's followers should align well with the brand's
potential customers. Brands also need to give influencers
creative freedom to promote the products authentically.
Followers can easily spot ads that seem forced or
inauthentic.
When done well, influencer marketing is a win-win:
influencers get paid and gain exposure, brands get access to
new audiences, and followers discover new products they
want to buy. No wonder influencer marketing is poised to
become a $21.1 Billion in 2023.
Leveraging Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
Augmented reality and virtual reality are innovative
technologies that are transforming marketing. As a marketer,
you need to understand how to leverage them.
www.ciolook.com | October 2023 |
17
AR and VR Offer Immersive Experiences
AR and VR provide fully immersive experiences that
emotionally engage customers. They allow people to
interact with products and services in new ways. For
example, the IKEA AR app lets you see how furniture
would look in your living room. Car companies are using
VR to give virtual test drives. These experiential
marketing techniques form deeper connections with
audiences.
They Generate Valuable Data
AR and VR also provide useful data about how people
engage with your brand. You can track things like:
Ÿ What products do people interact with?
Ÿ How long they engaged with an experience
Ÿ Their gestures, facial expressions, and eye
movements
This data helps you improve customer experiences and
target messaging.
The Technology is Becoming More Accessible
AR and VR are more affordable and easier to
implement than ever before. Many marketers are using
tools like Google's ARCore, Apple's ARKit, and
Facebook's Spark AR Studio to build their own
experiences. As technology continues to advance, more
organizations will adopt immersive marketing.
If you want to stay ahead of trends, start exploring how
AR and VR can transform your marketing. An
immersive, data-driven approach is the future of
customer experience. Are you ready to take the plunge?
Data-Driven Marketing Optimization
Data-driven marketing optimization relies on using
customer data to make informed decisions. By
analyzing metrics like click-through rates, page views,
and conversion rates, you can optimize your marketing
strategy.
Review your analytics regularly. Check metrics like
page views, time on site, and bounce rates to see what's
working and not working. Look for pages with high
bounce rates and low time on site. You may need to
improve the content or layout on those pages.
Focus on your conversion funnels. See where
customers are dropping off to improve your call-to-
action and persuade more people to buy or convert.
Even small changes, like rewarding a button or
simplifying a form, can make a difference.
Run A/B tests. Create multiple versions of an email,
landing page, or ad and show each version to a portion
of your audience to see which one performs better. The
winner is the one that generates the most clicks,
signups, or sales. Implement the winning strategy to
maximize your results.
Personalize your messaging. Use data about your
customers location, browsing history, and past
purchases to tailor content and offers to their needs
and interests. Personalized messages tend to get higher
open and click-through rates.
Analyze marketing channel performance. See which
channels like social media, email, or search engines
drive the most traffic and conversions. Shift your focus
and budget to the channels that are generating the best
results. But also regularly re-evaluate in case trends
change.
Data-driven marketing optimization is an ongoing
process of constant testing and refinement. But by
closely following the metrics, you can make impactful
changes to boost your key marketing KPIs and connect
with more of your target audience.
Conclusion
So there you have it: an overview of some of the biggest
trends shaping marketing today and likely influencing
how companies will connect with customers in the
future. Social media, personalization, and video are all
technologies and strategies that are rapidly evolving
and worth paying attention to. The marketing
landscape is changing fast, but it is also full of
opportunities for brands and businesses looking to
forge meaningful connections. By staying on top of
trends, testing new approaches, and not being afraid to
take risks, marketers can ensure they are reaching
audiences in innovative ways. The future of marketing
is exciting, as long as you're willing to adapt to change
and get creative. What new trends do you expect to
emerge next? The possibilities are endless.

Importance of Data
Analytics in Driving
Successful Campaigns
Importance of Data
Analytics Driving
in
Successful Campaigns
ou're launching a new marketing campaign and
Ywant to make sure it's a success. What's the
secret ingredient you need to drive results? Data
analytics. By harnessing the power of data, you'll gain
key insights into your customers and campaigns that
will set you up for success.
Data doesn't lie. It will tell you exactly what's working,
what's not, and what you need to optimize. You'll see
where people are dropping off in the sales funnel, so
you can fix any issues. You'll learn who your best
customers are so you can target more like them. You'll
track how people engage with your campaign so you
can refine your messaging.
The truth is, without data analytics, you're just
guessing. You might get lucky now and then, but to
consistently achieve your goals, you need facts and
insights, not guesses. Data analytics is the key to
unlocking the truth about your marketing campaigns.
Use it to make decisions, optimize your efforts, and
ultimately drive the success and ROI you're looking for.
Who's ready to get data-driven? You are!
Using Data Analytics to Set Clear Campaign Goals and
KPIs
To run a successful campaign, you need to set clear
goals and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure
your progress. Data analytics allows you to do that by:
Ÿ Identifying your target audience. Analyze customer
data to determine who your ideal customers are.
Focus your campaign on reaching those most likely
to engage with your brand.
Ÿ Setting specific and measurable campaign goals.
Maybe you want to increase brand awareness by
15% or boost sales by a certain percentage. Data
shows you your starting point, so you can set
reasonable goals.
Ÿ Choosing the right KPIs to track. Things like click-
through rate, conversion rate, and cost per
acquisition are good metrics. Regularly check your
campaign's KPIs to ensure you're moving in the right
direction. Make adjustments as needed to optimize
performance.
Ÿ A/B testing different campaign elements. Try two
versions of an email subject line or social media ad
and see which performs better based on open rates
or click rates. Then go with the winner. This
approach, backed by data, helps maximize your ROI.
Ÿ Evaluating what's working and not working. Some
campaign strategies might flop while others
succeed. Look at the data to determine what's
effective, so you can build on your wins and revamp
what's not achieving the desired results.
Using data analytics ensures your campaigns are highly
targeted, aligned to key goals, and optimized for the
best possible outcomes. By measuring and analyzing
the right metrics, you'll make data-driven decisions to
drive real success.
Leveraging Data Insights to Optimize Campaign
Performance
To get the most out of your campaigns, you need to
analyze the data and optimize based on insights.
Monitor Key Performance Indicators
Closely track metrics like click-through rates,
conversion rates, and cost per acquisition to see what's
working and what's not. Make adjustments to improve
results. For example, if click-through rates are low,
consider A/B testing different images, headlines, or ad
copy.

Segment Your Audience
Break down your audience into groups based on
attributes like demographics, interests, and past
behavior. Then tailor your messaging and offers to each
segment. People will be more responsive when content
is personalized and relevant to them.
Refine Your Targeting
Use data to refine your targeting and reach high-
potential prospects. For example, target lookalike
audiences similar to your best existing customers or
target specific interests and behaviors. The more
targeted your campaigns are, the better the results.
Review Funnel Performance
See where prospects are dropping off in your marketing
and sales funnel. Then make changes to fix any weak
points. For instance, if lots of people view your product
page but make few purchases, try offering more details,
reviews, images, or a coupon to increase conversions.
Continuously Improve
Campaign optimization never ends. Regularly check
your metrics and reports to identify new opportunities
and make incremental improvements. Over time, all
those small tweaks and tests can add up to big
performance gains. Data-driven marketing is a cycle,
not a destination.
The key is using data analytics at every step to gain
customer insights, optimize your efforts, and boost
your campaign success. When you leverage data to its
full potential, you'll achieve marketing mastery.
Measuring Campaign Success With Data Analytics
Reporting
Campaign success depends on data. By analyzing key
metrics and KPIs, you can gain valuable insights to
optimize your efforts.
Measure Reach and Engagement
Track how many people are seeing your campaign
content. Look at metrics like impressions, unique
visitors, and social shares or likes. See which platforms
and content types resonate most with your audience.
Make adjustments to expand your reach.
Also, measure how people are engaging with your
campaign. For social media, analyze comments, click-
through rates (CTR), and time on the page. For email,
check the open and click rates. Low engagement means
your message may not be resonating in time for a new
approach!
Monitor Conversions and ROI
The true measure of a campaign's success is whether it
drives conversions and sales. Track metrics like form
completions, purchases, app downloads, or other
actions you want users to take. Calculate your return
on investment (ROI) to see if the campaign is profitable.
If not, you may need to re-strategize your budget,
targeting, or messaging.
Learn From Your Data
Review all your campaign data and metrics to uncover
trends and insights. See what worked and didn't work.
Make a list of your learnings and use them for your next
campaign. Some questions to ask
Ÿ What content or platforms drove the most traffic
and engagement?
Ÿ What targeting or personalization strategies were
most effective?
Ÿ How can you improve your messaging to increase
conversions?
Ÿ What technologies or tools would enhance your
future campaigns?
By monitoring data analytics and optimizing based on
what you fear, you'll develop highly successful
marketing campaigns and a loyal customer base.
Success builds upon itself, so keep testing and
improving with every new effort.
Conclusion
As you can see, data analytics is an absolute game
changer when it comes to running and optimizing
successful marketing campaigns. By leveraging data to
gain customer insights, target your audiences,
personalize messaging, and track results in real-time,
you put yourself in the best position to achieve your key
performance indicators and business goals. While data
analytics requires an investment of time and resources,
the payoff can be huge. Make data-driven decisions a
priority for your next campaign; your customers and
bottom line will thank you.

  • 12. W elcome to the realm of TeamViewer, a global technology powerhouse shaping the digital landscape. A world where technology seamlessly connects us all, where remote access, device management and even controlling industrial machines are at your fingertips. In this dynamic tech environment, Stefanie Nastou stands as an expert in the field. As the Vice President of Marketing, she's a data-driven marketing executive with an astonishing track record. Stefanie excels in building brand equity, establishing performance-driven marketing programs and assembling world-class teams. Her impact extends beyond marketing—she's a trusted advisor to C-Suite executives, contributing to strategic decision-making. With a wide range of specialties, including B2B and B2C sales and marketing, digital transformation, brand development, and more, her journey is not just about business; Stefanie is also a children's book author, reflecting her multifaceted nature. As a vital cog in TeamViewer's marketing engine, Let's explore Stefanie's marketing strategies to create a future in the digital realm bright and promising! From Pitch to Promotion Stefanie's career journey has been outstanding. From the very beginning, she found herself in the fast-paced world of small boutique agencies. Here, she learned the ropes, wearing many hats, from sales to collaborating with designers and creative directors. "I have had a truly amazing journey and have been so lucky to be surrounded by such incredible leaders and colleagues throughout every phase of my career," she reflects. One of the pivotal moments in Stefanie's career was the guidance she received from mentors on both the agency and client sides. Their insights helped her navigate the agency world and honed her sales skills. As she moved into the realm of B2B software, this knowledge proved invaluable. "The agency experience laid the foundation for my sales and marketing journey," Stefanie notes. Over the years, Stefanie has worked at a diverse range of companies, from startups to industry giants. This breadth of experience has given her a unique perspective on marketing and business development. "I've seen it all, from the ground up," she says. In today's business landscape, Stefanie observes that marketing has transformed into a data-driven revenue engine. "Marketing is no longer just about communication and brand management," she emphasizes. "It's an extension of sales and the lines between the two are blurred.” In her view, the role of marketing has grown even more significant, with a staggering 80% of the B2B buyer's journey taking place online before any interaction with a sales representative. "Marketing now leverages AI and algorithms to deliver the right content to the right buyer at the right moment," Stefanie explains. Throughout her career, Stefanie has led global teams in campaigns, digital marketing and business development. Her key to success? A relentless focus on data and continuous learning. "Data is our lifeline," she states emphatically. "It shapes our strategy and drives marketing agility.” She encourages marketers to dive into the data, analyze what's working and what's not while also pivoting as needed to meet targets and deliver ROI. Stefanie's commitment to learning and innovation has been nurtured by the companies she's been a part of, like TeamViewer, where a culture of creativity leads to significantly greater outcomes. Empowering the Marketing Troops In the dynamic realm of modern marketing, collaboration takes center stage. Stefanie is an expert in the field and she shares invaluable strategies for cultivating a collaborative environment that drives success. Be yourself, be transparent and stand up not only for yourself but for others.

  • 14. It's crucial to communicate the vision, mission and goals clearly to your team. This alignment helps them understand their role in achieving the right outcomes. Immerse yourself in sales and customer support to hear directly from customers.
  • 15. "First and foremost," Stefanie emphasizes, "it's crucial to communicate the vision, mission and goals clearly to your team. This alignment helps them understand their role in achieving the right outcomes." When everyone knows their part, the path to success becomes clearer. Open and transparent communication is another cornerstone. Stefanie insists on giving every team member a voice. "We encourage a space where ideas flow freely," she says. This culture of openness fosters creativity and problem-solving. Collaborative ideation sessions, whether virtual or in person, play a pivotal role. "Everyone participates, providing input," Stefanie notes. "Then, we shortlist the best ideas to pilot or test." Setting clear objectives upfront ensures that actionable outcomes emerge. Empowering the team to make decisions is vital. "Remind them that you trust their judgment," Stefanie advises. "They've been hired for a reason. It's an ongoing process, reassuring them that mistakes are part of the learning curve.” Testing is at the core of Stefanie's approach. "Marketing is about testing and then scaling what works," she emphasizes. "We follow a strict policy of A/B testing everything." This data-driven approach ensures continuous improvement. Celebrating even small wins is crucial. Stefanie believes in recognizing and rewarding her team for their collaborative efforts. "It's about showcasing the great work that results from teamwork," she says proudly. As TeamViewer operates in a rapidly evolving technology landscape, Stefanie sheds light on fostering innovation in marketing strategies. "The martech stack is essential," she explains. "To reach the right audience with the right message, you need the right technology." Staying updated on emerging platforms and technologies that integrate with the CRM is key. Understanding customers and their pain points is equally vital. Stefanie's advice? "Immerse yourself in sales and customer support to hear directly from customers." Knowing their challenges and how their businesses evolve ensures marketing evolves with them. The customer feedback loop is the foundation of a robust marketing strategy. Exploring new content channels is another part of Stefanie's innovation strategy. "Know where your audience goes for information," she advises. For instance, if you're targeting developers, find the platforms and forums they frequent. Peer group forums provide insights into buyer behavior, shaping the marketing strategy accordingly. Marketing's Dynamic Duo Being a seasoned marketer at TeamViewer, Stefanie shares her insights on the importance of aligning marketing with corporate objectives. "Your company's goals are the compass for your long-term marketing strategy," she emphasizes. Understanding the competitive landscape and emerging market trends is equally vital for agility and innovation. Stefanie's approach includes the creation of a "tiger team" capable of swift responses to market shifts. "Agile marketing is all about building short sprints to deliver competitive offerings quickly," she explains. This nimble mindset is ingrained in TeamViewer's culture, adapting seamlessly to the ever-changing tech landscape. In Stefanie's world, marketing isn't just about promotion—it's about staying in sync with corporate objectives and being ready to pivot in the face of competition. This agile approach is the cornerstone of success in today's fast-paced tech industry. Comprehending the Crucial Elements Understanding your target audience is at the heart of effective marketing, as Stefanie emphasizes. "To resonate with your audience," she advises, "you must dive deep into their world—understand their pain points, preferences and goals.” Segmentation is a key strategy, where you tailor messages to specific personas, industries and roles. Stefanie believes in crafting messages that align directly with customers' challenges and desired outcomes. "The more tailored, the better," she says, "including the value proposition and the complete package your product or service offers.” Choosing the right channels is vital, ensuring content reaches audiences at the right moment in their journey. "Know where they research," Stefanie points out. Personalized content also plays a pivotal role in B2B marketing, creating a personal connection.
  • 16. When targeting specific industries, Stefanie advocates showcasing use cases and customer success stories tailored to that sector. "Prospective customers want assurance that you understand their unique challenges and business goals," she explains. For TeamViewer's augmented reality solution, xPick, the approach differs for warehousing and logistics compared to the pharmaceutical industry. Personalization is the key to success in these diverse landscapes. Crunching the Numbers "Data is marketing's lifeline," Stefanie underscores, emphasizing its role as a growth engine. To ensure everyone is on the same page, Stefanie advises aligning core KPIs across teams. "Success should be crystal clear by year-end, agreed upon by sales, marketing and finance.” Daily dashboard scrutiny is a must and swift action is the name of the game. Stefanie champions testing and agile marketing for seizing market opportunities. For instance, in response to a healthcare compliance regulation, marketing swiftly launches a campaign aligning with the new requirements. Data's purpose is clear—inform short and long-term strategies, and optimize results in real-time. Turning the Tables "The software industry remains male-dominated," acknowledges Stefanie, but she proudly highlights the shifting landscape in marketing. "TeamViewer is a strong advocate of gender diversity throughout the organization.” Stefanie's advice to fellow women is clear: "Be yourself, be transparent and stand up not only for yourself but for others." She laments the persistence of women second- guessing themselves and lacking support to progress. In her view, senior executive women can step up as mentors and advocates. Stefanie firmly believes in the power of women supporting women, whether in the boardroom or beyond. "Strength lies in numbers," she asserts. Encouraging this camaraderie is essential for breaking down barriers and achieving gender equality in the software industry. It's a vision Stefanie and TeamViewer champion passionately. Course to Success Mentorship is a deep passion for Stefanie, fueled by the profound impact of her own mentors. "My mentors shaped the leader I am today," she shares, filled with gratitude. Her experience has ignited a desire to pave the way for the next generation of leaders. Stefanie's mentorship philosophy is refreshingly simple. "It doesn't need to be a formal program," she asserts. Leading a team is, in itself, a form of mentorship. "You lead by example," she points out, drawing parallels with parenting, as a mom of two boys. Active and empathetic listening is Stefanie's cornerstone for effective mentorship. She believes that most mentees seek feedback to grow, emphasizing the importance of honesty and guidance. "Let them know you've got their back," she encourages, offering support in building learning paths to skill improvement. Shaping future leaders as a mentor is a deeply rewarding experience, Stefanie attests. Her message to leaders is clear: "Participate in formal mentorship programs if your organization offers them." In Stefanie's world, mentorship isn't just a duty; it's an opportunity to inspire and guide the leaders of tomorrow. Marketing in the Fast Lane "As a marketer, embracing new technologies is crucial," Stefanie emphasizes. She points to AI as a game- changer, enabling predictive analytics to forecast trends and behaviors, ultimately leading to data-driven decision-making. "It enhances the customer experience," she notes. Participate in formal mentorship programs if your organization offers them.
  • 17. AI chatbots and virtual assistants, in Stefanie's view, play a pivotal role. They swiftly troubleshoot issues and provide answers, elevating overall customer satisfaction. Stefanie shares a real-life example—her son's quick resolution of an online exam error through a chatbot, enabling him to continue his exam within minutes. Stefanie envisions vast potential in AR and VR applications, particularly in retail and real estate marketing. She illustrates her point with a scenario of property hunting in Italy. "With VR glasses, you can immerse yourself in a virtual tour of a home," she suggests. This technology empowers customers to explore properties remotely, offering a unique and immersive experience. Balancing the Scales "Family first is my mantra," Stefanie declares passionately. Despite her demanding career that often takes her around the world, she's unwavering in her commitment to family. "I've never missed my kids' important moments," she proudly states. Even if it means catching a red-eye flight, Stefanie ensures she's there for birthdays, soccer games, graduations, and school plays. FaceTime in a New York cab? That's just one example of Stefanie's dedication to staying connected with her kids while on the go. "Balance is essential," she emphasizes. Holiday breaks are sacred, a time for digital detox, yoga, nature walks with her dog, and podcasts that fuel her thirst for learning and inspiration. Baking is another passion that brings warmth to her home. "There's no better smell than a freshly baked pie," she muses. Amidst it all, Stefanie's husband serves as her constant sounding board, helping maintain that delicate work-life balance. "When I'm working, I'm full-on in the zone," she shares. Decompression and family time are vital to preserving that balance. Marketing Masterstroke "I've worked on countless campaigns," Stefanie reflects, "but the most memorable ones showcase customer stories and their transformative journeys." These campaigns, she notes, don't even mention the product—instead, they focus solely on the customer's narrative and the profound changes in their customers' experiences. In Stefanie's view, what's common among these campaigns is their ability to forge connections. "These stories create emotional bonds that resonate with the audience," she says. Viewers immediately associate the brand with enabling those transformative outcomes. Stefanie points out that this approach is widespread in the B2B software realm, where customers' real-world experiences take center stage. A Legacy in the Making "I hope I've paved the way for the next generation of leaders," Stefanie reflects, her commitment to mentorship clear. Her vision extends to a legacy project with a positive environmental impact. Guidance and support remain at the forefront of her mission. Stefanie aims to nurture creativity and innovation among emerging marketing professionals, equipping them with the age of generative AI and other disruptive technologies. Stefanie underscores the significance of staying abreast of industry trends, including marketing automation, AI predictive data analytics, augmented and virtual reality, AI chatbots, and AI voice search. She encourages marketers to grasp how AI can deliver highly personalized customer experiences, ensuring they stay competitive in an ever-evolving digital landscape. Prospective customers want assurance that you understand their unique challenges and business goals.

  • 19. ou know how quickly technology and trends move Ythese days. In the world of marketing, things are changing faster than ever. As a marketer, keeping up with the latest and greatest trends is critical to staying ahead of the competition and best serving your customers. Some of the biggest trends emerging now are in digital marketing, social media, content creation, and more. In this article, we're going to dive into some of the hottest marketing trends you need to know to improve your strategy, better engage your audience, and drive more business in today's fast-paced digital world. From the rise of influencer marketing to the importance of video to the next wave of social platforms, you'll get the inside scoop on the trends shaping marketing's future. The Rise of Influencer Marketing Influencer marketing is one of the fastest-growing trends in marketing. Brands are harnessing the power of social media to influence people with large followings on platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. These influencers have built a high level of trust with their followers, and when they promote a product, their followers listen. According to a recent study, over 90% of consumers trust recommendations from influencers more than traditional ads. That's why more and more brands are collaborating with influencers. They send the influencers free products or pay them to promote their goods and services to their followers. For influencer marketing to be effective, brands need to find influencers who are a great match for their target audience. The influencer's followers should align well with the brand's potential customers. Brands also need to give influencers creative freedom to promote the products authentically. Followers can easily spot ads that seem forced or inauthentic. When done well, influencer marketing is a win-win: influencers get paid and gain exposure, brands get access to new audiences, and followers discover new products they want to buy. No wonder influencer marketing is poised to become a $21.1 Billion in 2023. Leveraging Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Augmented reality and virtual reality are innovative technologies that are transforming marketing. As a marketer, you need to understand how to leverage them. www.ciolook.com | October 2023 | 17
  • 20. AR and VR Offer Immersive Experiences AR and VR provide fully immersive experiences that emotionally engage customers. They allow people to interact with products and services in new ways. For example, the IKEA AR app lets you see how furniture would look in your living room. Car companies are using VR to give virtual test drives. These experiential marketing techniques form deeper connections with audiences. They Generate Valuable Data AR and VR also provide useful data about how people engage with your brand. You can track things like: Ÿ What products do people interact with? Ÿ How long they engaged with an experience Ÿ Their gestures, facial expressions, and eye movements This data helps you improve customer experiences and target messaging. The Technology is Becoming More Accessible AR and VR are more affordable and easier to implement than ever before. Many marketers are using tools like Google's ARCore, Apple's ARKit, and Facebook's Spark AR Studio to build their own experiences. As technology continues to advance, more organizations will adopt immersive marketing. If you want to stay ahead of trends, start exploring how AR and VR can transform your marketing. An immersive, data-driven approach is the future of customer experience. Are you ready to take the plunge? Data-Driven Marketing Optimization Data-driven marketing optimization relies on using customer data to make informed decisions. By analyzing metrics like click-through rates, page views, and conversion rates, you can optimize your marketing strategy. Review your analytics regularly. Check metrics like page views, time on site, and bounce rates to see what's working and not working. Look for pages with high bounce rates and low time on site. You may need to improve the content or layout on those pages. Focus on your conversion funnels. See where customers are dropping off to improve your call-to- action and persuade more people to buy or convert. Even small changes, like rewarding a button or simplifying a form, can make a difference. Run A/B tests. Create multiple versions of an email, landing page, or ad and show each version to a portion of your audience to see which one performs better. The winner is the one that generates the most clicks, signups, or sales. Implement the winning strategy to maximize your results. Personalize your messaging. Use data about your customers location, browsing history, and past purchases to tailor content and offers to their needs and interests. Personalized messages tend to get higher open and click-through rates. Analyze marketing channel performance. See which channels like social media, email, or search engines drive the most traffic and conversions. Shift your focus and budget to the channels that are generating the best results. But also regularly re-evaluate in case trends change. Data-driven marketing optimization is an ongoing process of constant testing and refinement. But by closely following the metrics, you can make impactful changes to boost your key marketing KPIs and connect with more of your target audience. Conclusion So there you have it: an overview of some of the biggest trends shaping marketing today and likely influencing how companies will connect with customers in the future. Social media, personalization, and video are all technologies and strategies that are rapidly evolving and worth paying attention to. The marketing landscape is changing fast, but it is also full of opportunities for brands and businesses looking to forge meaningful connections. By staying on top of trends, testing new approaches, and not being afraid to take risks, marketers can ensure they are reaching audiences in innovative ways. The future of marketing is exciting, as long as you're willing to adapt to change and get creative. What new trends do you expect to emerge next? The possibilities are endless. www.ciolook.com | October 2023 | 18

  • 22. Importance of Data Analytics in Driving Successful Campaigns Importance of Data Analytics Driving in Successful Campaigns ou're launching a new marketing campaign and Ywant to make sure it's a success. What's the secret ingredient you need to drive results? Data analytics. By harnessing the power of data, you'll gain key insights into your customers and campaigns that will set you up for success. Data doesn't lie. It will tell you exactly what's working, what's not, and what you need to optimize. You'll see where people are dropping off in the sales funnel, so you can fix any issues. You'll learn who your best customers are so you can target more like them. You'll track how people engage with your campaign so you can refine your messaging. The truth is, without data analytics, you're just guessing. You might get lucky now and then, but to consistently achieve your goals, you need facts and insights, not guesses. Data analytics is the key to unlocking the truth about your marketing campaigns. Use it to make decisions, optimize your efforts, and ultimately drive the success and ROI you're looking for. Who's ready to get data-driven? You are! Using Data Analytics to Set Clear Campaign Goals and KPIs To run a successful campaign, you need to set clear goals and key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure your progress. Data analytics allows you to do that by: Ÿ Identifying your target audience. Analyze customer data to determine who your ideal customers are. Focus your campaign on reaching those most likely to engage with your brand. Ÿ Setting specific and measurable campaign goals. Maybe you want to increase brand awareness by 15% or boost sales by a certain percentage. Data shows you your starting point, so you can set reasonable goals. Ÿ Choosing the right KPIs to track. Things like click- through rate, conversion rate, and cost per acquisition are good metrics. Regularly check your campaign's KPIs to ensure you're moving in the right direction. Make adjustments as needed to optimize performance. Ÿ A/B testing different campaign elements. Try two versions of an email subject line or social media ad and see which performs better based on open rates or click rates. Then go with the winner. This approach, backed by data, helps maximize your ROI. Ÿ Evaluating what's working and not working. Some campaign strategies might flop while others succeed. Look at the data to determine what's effective, so you can build on your wins and revamp what's not achieving the desired results. Using data analytics ensures your campaigns are highly targeted, aligned to key goals, and optimized for the best possible outcomes. By measuring and analyzing the right metrics, you'll make data-driven decisions to drive real success. Leveraging Data Insights to Optimize Campaign Performance To get the most out of your campaigns, you need to analyze the data and optimize based on insights. Monitor Key Performance Indicators Closely track metrics like click-through rates, conversion rates, and cost per acquisition to see what's working and what's not. Make adjustments to improve results. For example, if click-through rates are low, consider A/B testing different images, headlines, or ad copy. www.ciolook.com | October 2023 | 20
  • 24. Segment Your Audience Break down your audience into groups based on attributes like demographics, interests, and past behavior. Then tailor your messaging and offers to each segment. People will be more responsive when content is personalized and relevant to them. Refine Your Targeting Use data to refine your targeting and reach high- potential prospects. For example, target lookalike audiences similar to your best existing customers or target specific interests and behaviors. The more targeted your campaigns are, the better the results. Review Funnel Performance See where prospects are dropping off in your marketing and sales funnel. Then make changes to fix any weak points. For instance, if lots of people view your product page but make few purchases, try offering more details, reviews, images, or a coupon to increase conversions. Continuously Improve Campaign optimization never ends. Regularly check your metrics and reports to identify new opportunities and make incremental improvements. Over time, all those small tweaks and tests can add up to big performance gains. Data-driven marketing is a cycle, not a destination. The key is using data analytics at every step to gain customer insights, optimize your efforts, and boost your campaign success. When you leverage data to its full potential, you'll achieve marketing mastery. Measuring Campaign Success With Data Analytics Reporting Campaign success depends on data. By analyzing key metrics and KPIs, you can gain valuable insights to optimize your efforts. Measure Reach and Engagement Track how many people are seeing your campaign content. Look at metrics like impressions, unique visitors, and social shares or likes. See which platforms and content types resonate most with your audience. Make adjustments to expand your reach. Also, measure how people are engaging with your campaign. For social media, analyze comments, click- through rates (CTR), and time on the page. For email, check the open and click rates. Low engagement means your message may not be resonating in time for a new approach! Monitor Conversions and ROI The true measure of a campaign's success is whether it drives conversions and sales. Track metrics like form completions, purchases, app downloads, or other actions you want users to take. Calculate your return on investment (ROI) to see if the campaign is profitable. If not, you may need to re-strategize your budget, targeting, or messaging. Learn From Your Data Review all your campaign data and metrics to uncover trends and insights. See what worked and didn't work. Make a list of your learnings and use them for your next campaign. Some questions to ask Ÿ What content or platforms drove the most traffic and engagement? Ÿ What targeting or personalization strategies were most effective? Ÿ How can you improve your messaging to increase conversions? Ÿ What technologies or tools would enhance your future campaigns? By monitoring data analytics and optimizing based on what you fear, you'll develop highly successful marketing campaigns and a loyal customer base. Success builds upon itself, so keep testing and improving with every new effort. Conclusion As you can see, data analytics is an absolute game changer when it comes to running and optimizing successful marketing campaigns. By leveraging data to gain customer insights, target your audiences, personalize messaging, and track results in real-time, you put yourself in the best position to achieve your key performance indicators and business goals. While data analytics requires an investment of time and resources, the payoff can be huge. Make data-driven decisions a priority for your next campaign; your customers and bottom line will thank you. www.ciolook.com | October 2023 | 22
