eMetrics Marketing Labs
San Jose, May 4-6, 2010
Practitioners talk about how they are doing their work at their company. Consultants describe best practices. Vendors can only tell you so much in the short time you have at their booths in the exhibit hall. eMetrics Labs were designed to give you that up-close and personal look at how specific tools solve specific client problems. Select from three different business problem scenarios to see how the technology actually works. These are live demonstrations of technologies working together to solve real world challenges, offer real world answers, and take you behind the scenes to see how data and technology combine to achieve stunning results. eMetrics Marketing Labs are your quickest path to monetizing your eMetrics attendance and have been called the ‘hidden gems’ of eMetrics by previous attendees.

Listening, Understanding and Predicting the Impacts of Social Media on Your Business
Conversations among customers are taking place every day about their experience with companies. A virtual focus group is chattering away and yet most organizations can’t identify the impact of this chatter on their overall sales.
You can make sense of the chaos with a structured approach – by collecting social media, Web metrics and other offline data points to create deeper insights for better decision making. Learn more about the four steps to managing the impact of social media on your business:
- Gather it – Capture, clean and integrate data from online and offline databases and social media.
- Organize it – Identify and classify the topics, concepts and contexts that really matter.
- Analyze it – Ensure accuracy by drilling down to the originating data sources and tweak the approach when needed.
- Present it – Use the metrics that matter the most to your business in order to make smart decisions quickly.

Online Customer Experience: Why is the New What
Mirelle Mallouh, Sr. Director, Analytics and Data Warehouse, CafePress.com
Kuntal Goradia, Owner, Zadpi, Customer Experience Consulting
While most companies recognize that their online channel is important, interestingly enough, they dont always invest in optimizing it. The challenge and the reality of doing business on the web today is that competition is just a click away. And, when people struggle to navigate/transact on your site, they can simply take their business elsewhere. Providing a great web site experience not only ensures higher conversion rates, but also increases overall customer satisfaction, retention, and ultimately, ensures the success of the entire business. In this lab, online retailer Café Press will review the business drivers for implementing a Customer Experience solution, their key objectives and how they are using Tealeaf to drive real results.
