Moving from leads to quality leads.
Nike: our best athletes help us create better products, at the end of the day, it’s all about the product.
Connect with the customer: let’s be where the consumers are and prove them with great content and great stories.
From one to many (product, price, place, promotion) to many to many communication (customer solution, customer cost, convenience, communication).

Keeping customers and acquiring customers.
Social corporation, social CRM in the future: because customer is in power

Why is marketing being reborn, marketing automation, digital ecosystem, case studies and measurement.

Roles of sales and marketing are changing because of: marketing technology, engagement, targeting, conversion, analytics.

Marketing automation training
To be developed vs. sales-qualified leads.
Case Vaisala knowledge eNewsletter programme: small reach but very well targeted, unsubscription rate below 1%. Planned with conversion points. Integrated with sales so that salesperson knows when visiting a customer what he/she has done on website for the last year and a half.
Case Vaisala nurturing programmes: what is the path that I want a customer to take, depending on solution? Content assets. Not campaign thinking here, just keep it going! SEM campaign thinking of triggers. Thought through together with sales in terms of messages and role of each.
Lead scoring: explicit and implicit data!
Webinars: 50 per year, excellent assets for conversion.
Social media: not a priority channel, but gives good leads and helps with thought leadership.
Measurement: how well do we help implement execution. Currently 445 active campaigns, less than 1% hard bounces. 6k€ company subscriber value for newsletter. 2/3 of leads through digital channels. Some segments more mature to start the customer journey digitally than others.
Change management by flying below the radar, get results, then tell everybody.

Measurement to be improved, as it wasn’t defined in the beginning. Do now, ask for forgiveness later ;-).

6th presenter: Susanna Repo, Veikkaus

Systematic customer feedback for improving customer service and business results.
1000 customers every day. They cannot advertise, but need to differentiate through product and service development.
Case Jokeri: huge customer feedback numbers when the game changed, advertising changed, character changed, but didnt’t immediately analyse so lost two months since feedback was quite bad. How to change?
Worked with Etuma to change situation and do proper feedback analysis.
Case Lotto & Viking Lotto: smaller prizes available after customer feedback, increased sales and revenue. Later expanded to all players.
Bettable events: added NBA & Jukolan Viesti after customer feedbaack. However, cannot do everything: Indian customers asked for cricket.
Custom benefits: no more codes, only click a button for customer recognition.
Customer service: while customers wanted longer hours, it was not profitable.
Customer feedback processing further automated in real time in the future, included in business processes! Currently using Whitevector for monitoring.

7th presenter: Timo Kruskopf, Idea Development Oy

Marketing automation and creative
A idea is always needed, brands still need a story, a point of view, automation helps with message repetition.
Now it is simply easier to reach more audiences through different channels.
Content needs to be planned to for use at different parts of the consumer journey.
Idea needs to work at each stage of the consumer journey.
Evaluating big long ideas: head, heart, holy shit.

8th presenter: Heikki Karjaluoto, Jyväskylän yliopiston kauppakorkeakoulu
Measurement needs to not be too much, or danger is to lose the forest for the trees (no red thread).
On the contrary, measurements can give peace for creativity.

9th presenter: Torsti Tenhunen
A brand needs to have a personality and a story.
Long, reactive campaigns that are always on.
Simpler to get different leads.
