AmCham Digital Transformation

Ciklopea representatives attended yesterday’s AmCham event “The need for Digital Marketing Transformation – embrace it or get left behind” with the keynote speaker Ms. Katie Axam, Chief Marketing Officer, IBM Central and Eastern Europe.

In her speech, Ms. Axam reflected on the changing role of the CMO and the need for organizations to adapt in order to fit into today’s modern marketing world by truly understanding their customers.

Our main interest was a part of the talk about the possibilities to transform the marketing team into a client centric and data driven one, i.e. to understand your clients better in the digital world.

Our takeaways

 

75% Executives Make Emotional Decisions

The most important thing in selling language services is to reach decision makers and focus on their needs. They have to imagine themselves in a particular business situation in order to make the right decision.

Product Focused vs. Experience Focused Marketing

The old marketing process would be to focus on the final product and the ways on how to sell it. But that is not sufficient anymore, since digital trends require constant adaptations.

Empathy Maps

Tracking clients’ satisfaction even after closing a deal is also very important. That way, we can see how the client feels when using our services and use that knowledge to increase their satisfaction.

On the execution level, every localization project has two major distinct dimensions – linguistic and technical. While the linguistic dimension encompasses language adaptation issues, such as language pairs, translation, and review, technical dimension includes physical aspects of the project, such as file formats, required software, digital resources and various additional services that need to be performed before, during and after the project, all with the aim of ensuring the quality and usability of the final localized materials.
