Metrics for Pulling the Customer Through the Purchase Cycle
Chris Daniels, Stubhub
Clicks and conversion rates don’t tell you what you need to know to build a relationship with first-time or infrequent visitors and encourage them to buy. Stubhub, a leading online marketing place of event tickets, gauges customer satisfaction throughout the full purchase lifecycle from browse to post-purchase, to post-event (e.g. fulfillment), and email communications, integrating satisfaction data with internal CRM data to profile visitors and put satisfaction scores and verbatim comments in context. This gives Stubhub the strategic understanding and tactical insights to optimize acquisition and build a loyal customer base.

Do you know how your site visitors perform during the week vs. during the weekend? Do you know the lost opportunity cost of not treating them differently? Do you know how you can do to easily change that experience automatically? If you answered "No" to any of those questions you should attend this session.

eMetrics Marketing Lab: Analytics Driven Email - Driving Dollars Through Data
Angel Morales, eMetrics.org
The: You have shoppers who abandon their shopping carts. You know the dollar value of those carts is roughly twice the annual revenue produced through your website. You know that adding an item to a basket signals a higher level of intent to complete that transaction. So how do you get back in front of them using the tools and technology you've already got?
Join one of the nation’s largest multi-channel retailers as they show how they envisioned and executed on their ‘abandoned check out’ strategies. The lab opens with very tactical best practices – illustrating how most top tier analytics platforms support remarketing today. We then go deeper, exploring our retailer’s live program, seeing the moving parts, and understanding the integration. While this lab is focused on email, we will also share insights on how integration will be achieved with CRM and other marketing technologies, data stores, and business intelligence systems. This practical, tactical problem/solution example will give you the practical knowledge you need to leverage your own tools and data.

Grand Unification Theory of the Impact of Site Performance on User Experience
How bad will it get if your website is a little slower? Will it matter? Website performance isn't just technical specs. Google and Amazon have both shown how much page load time and conversions are intertwined. Marketers need to constantly make trade-offs on performance (richer, slower content; tags at the bottom of pages that reduce the data collected but make pages faster; and so on.) This session looks at those tradeoffs and explores end user experience monitoring and usability as the bridge between performance and business outcomes like conversions. Come learn the state of the art in web performance management, and how to tie performance management back to the rest of your monitoring mix so you can optimize your conversions and delight your online communities.

Measuring Online Brand Power
Liz Webb, eVOC Insights
How do you measure the value of your online brand? Measuring clicks, time spent and pages viewed on your website helps validate website performance, but it does not illuminate what visitors think or how they feel about your brand. Measuring online brand power requires a combination of Web Analytics and Voice of the Customer research. Customers will voice their opinions if the site is not easy to use, if the content is not helpful, or if they do not trust your brand. Liz will illustrate how to combine Voice of the Customer research, usability, eye tracking and behavioral data to get the results you seek for online brand success. She will share Web best practices and brand preference data from highly competitive websites like Facebook, MySpace, Expedia and Travelocity to understand how sites like these are influencing your customers’ perceptions and how to ensure your online brand is a success.
