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. This is why it is important to focus on customer experience instead and put customers’ needs first. By doing so, we can finally put the pieces of the puzzle together and create a cohesive picture.

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.

Social Media and Content Distribution

One of the perks of having been in the industry for decades is the ability to calibrate your laser line and get to the core of things easily.

Surely, the language industry is extremely fragmented and each project is a separate universe with specific aspects and requirements, but when you reach that point where you have successfully executed all kinds of projects, more or less complex, with millions of words and in dozens of language combinations, you inevitably begin to see it more clearly what is really important and the undercurrents that lead to success or failure across the different projects begin to show on the surface.
