An Interview with JCPenny’s VP of Marketing Effectiveness

How JCP 10% Generated 10% incremental revenue

You get a lot of visitors to your website but only a small percentage of them convert for one reason or another. If you recognize the user, you send them a retargeting email and maybe it’s personalized to some degree. If you don’t recognize them and they have given you permission to track them, you try to deliver retargeting ads on Facebook or across the web. Both of these tactics come at a cost, take time, and are very limiting. So, what if you knew when a shopper was about to bounce (with or without starting a cart) and you had an opportunity to message them with something relevant to encourage them to stay, what would you do? In this interview, Pratik Kodial, VP of Marketing Effectiveness will discuss how JCP used this opportunity to increase incremental revenue by 10%. Also joined by Robert Wharton, Head of product at Metrical.

Incrementality Insight Series: Why add geo-testing to your measurement strategy?

Hosted By: Measured

When: August 12, 2021 @ 11 am PST

As multi-touch attribution is laid to rest, in-market experimentation for incrementality has rapidly gained favor with advertisers as a reliable method for making smart media investment decisions.

In this new measurement era, experimentation anchored on 1st party data is fast becoming the durable approach for marketing measurement. Geo Match Market testing is shaping up to be the near-universal approach for measuring incrementality on most media channels, especially for prospecting tactics.

Blind spots exist and, on many channels, they’re multiplying as user-level targeting and tracking dissipate. Geo experiments don’t require user-level data, but they can still reveal the incremental contribution of media to any metric that can be collected at the geo level.

This live session with Measured experts will include:

  1. An overview of geo-testing methodology and its role in modern marketing
  2. A live demo of how geo-experiments are designed and implemented
  3. A recent case study showing how one brand used geo-testing on YouTube to find new prospects and increase sales
  4. Q&A with Measured experts to answer all your geo questions

You’ve no doubt heard a lot about Apple’s iOS 15 update and what it means for your open metrics. And while the fact that open metrics will become even more unreliable might make you a bit uneasy, we see it as an opportunity to rethink and improve many email marketing practices.

Without reliable open data, marketers must focus on creating the most compelling and relevant email content possible. This ensures the best results from your program, whether measured by clicks, revenue and/or increased customer lifetime value. And we believe personalized kinetic email is the best way to do just that.

In this webinar, Robert Haydock, Zembula CEO and Garin Hobbs, SVP of Client Strategy, will break down exactly what kinetic email is and why you should use it. They’ll also show you how to take it a step further by personalizing your kinetic email with the data you already have.

They’ll cover:
– What exactly is kinetic email?
– How can you personalize kinetic email?
– 5 use cases for getting started with personalized kinetic email
– Helpful tips and best practices
