Visual IQ to Moderate Panel on the Power of People-Based Marketing at Forrester’s Consumer Marketing Forum 2017

​NEEDHAM, Mass.– March 29, 2017 - Visual IQ, the leading provider of marketing intelligence software, today announced that the company’s co-founder and CEO, Manu Mathew, will moderate a panel at Forrester’s Consumer Marketing Forum 2017. The session, “Marketing Intelligence: Solving the Puzzle of People-Based Marketing,” will take place on April 6 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

​What: Today’s consumers are interacting with brands across more channels, touchpoints, and devices than ever, and expect a coordinated, relevant experience. Featuring marketing and data analytics insights from executives at Roku, Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global and H&R Block, this panel will discuss how to deliver on the full promise of people-based marketing. Specifically, it will address how the combined power of audience and attribution provides the actionable intelligence marketers need to optimize budgets, consumer experiences, and business results.

​Why: As consumers increasingly live online and through their mobile devices, the opportunity to use data to provide tailored messages and experiences across channels and devices has never been greater. However, capitalizing on this opportunity remains a key challenge due to data siloes and outdated measurement techniques that make it difficult for marketers to gain a unified view of each consumer and his interactions with a brand. To be successful, marketers need the ability to combine the profile data they have about their customers and prospects with tactical marketing performance. When marketing and advertising tactics are analyzed in combination with customer and prospect attributes, marketers can not only orchestrate the optimal customer experience, but also optimize spend within and across channels to drive conversions, brand engagement, revenue, and other success metrics.

​Who: Mathew is the co-founder and CEO of Visual IQ where he is responsible for driving business growth and expanding the company’s capabilities to help brands optimize their budgets and deliver relevant consumer experiences that drive meaningful business results. Mathew will guide the discussion as moderator of the panel, which will include unique insights from:

  • Lisa Flosznik, director of demand marketing at Roku
  • Linda Fournier, VP of insight and analytics at Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global, Inc.
  • Amy Hu, VP of interactive marketing and online experience at H&R Block

​When: The session will take place on Thursday, April 6 from 11:25 – 11:45 a.m. ET.

​Where: The Forum brings together more than 750 marketing leaders, innovators and practitioners to collaboratively address the rapidly evolving consumer marketing landscape. The event is taking place from April 6-7 at the New York Marriot Marquis. More details, including registration information, are available on the event website. In addition to the panel, Visual IQ will be exhibiting at booth #402.
