Lunch & Learn: Innovations in Branded Caller ID and Battling SPAM-tagging

Room: Grand Ballroom 123

Lunch is served in the session room. Lunch & Learn session seating is limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.


Phone calls still play an important role in engaging with customers, and are often used when other digital self-service channels fail to address urgent or highly sensitive customer concerns. But consumers have stopped answering their phones due to the rise in illegal robocalls and call scams.

 

Government agencies are cracking down with regulatory and legislative mandates designed to protect consumers.

 

Call originators have experienced precipitous drops in call answer rates and customers are missing important calls. Multiple call backs are required – leading to increased costs and frustrated consumers.

 

With the focus on digital communications and providing a seamless omnichannel customer experience, it’s important for the lead-gen community to remember the importance of traditional, key channels such as the call experience to help connect and close deals.

 

This productive session outlines information that call originators can use to improve the call experience. You will learn:

 

·        The current state of regulatory and legislative anti-robocall mandates

·        What anti-robocall methods voice service providers are rolling out

·        How robocall analytics and STIR/SHAKEN call authentication can affect phone calls

·        Best practices for call originators to effectively reach customers by phone, and deliver a better call experience for customers.

What Your Customers Are Really Doing Online

Room: Grand Ballroom 123

While you want people to engage with your marketing, science says that your customers and prospects are often on autopilot.

In performance marketing, we don't always get to control the top of the funnel story that prospects see and that can lead to poor down funnel metrics. Join us as we explore what is really going on in the crazy world of acquisition marketing in 2021.
