Make a Big Impact Even If You’re Not a Big Brand

Today’s consumers don’t just want relevant and timely experiences, they expect them. The more that big enterprise brands personalize content and deliver it just when customers are ready to receive it, the more you’re forced to keep up.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a big business with a big budget to deliver meaningful customer experiences.

With advanced content management and a cloud-based, integrated digital foundation, you too can deliver amazing experiences. The right digital foundation will help you automate more processes, understand your customers better, and scale to keep up with growing demand. All of which helps you attract and retain more customers.

Best practices for creating big-brand experiences on a mid-size budget

Deliver relevant experiences with lightning speed

Deliver relevant experiences with lightning speed. Your customers want what they want, when they want it. By the time you figure out what that is, there’s a good chance they’ve moved on. That’s why speed is key to delivering engaging experiences. Marketers need a digital foundation that lets them quickly create, optimize, and deliver personalized content to thousands of customers.

Use analytics and AI to understand your customers

Understanding what a few loyal customers want is one thing. Understanding hundreds or thousands requires more help. With analytics and artificial intelligence, you can gain deep insights into your customers’ preferences and behaviors, and then automatically deliver experiences that motivate them to act.

Create experiences at scale for better ROI

As customer expectations continue to climb, one-on-one connections are a must. When you can automatically deliver personal experiences to thousands of customers, you’ll see higher engagement, more satisfied customers, and increased revenue. Research by the McKinsey Global Institute shows that personalizing at scale can deliver five to eight times the ROI on marketing spend and lift sales by 10 percent.

Securing more customers with faster development time

Cylance cybersecurity technology runs on more than 10 million endpoints and protects more than 100 organizations worldwide. The company’s rise has been fast and steep, climbing to the point where they needed to evolve their website into a more effective tool for growth.

After looking at different options, they chose Adobe Experience Cloud for their digital foundation. With their robust suite of solutions, Cylance has improved their digital marketing with more automation and personalization, and are now able to optimize every customer interaction.

Using Adobe Experience Manager, the company developed about 70 reusable components, which their marketers use to author content and deploy pages with simple drag-and-drop functionality. This agility is important as they roll out new websites for their other markets, including Japan and Germany. Developers there can borrow from building blocks and quickly spin up sites with the same look and feel.

In addition to faster deployment times, they’ve boosted the time spent on their website and have seen a two-percent drop in bounce rates.

“Previously, we were dealing with spaghetti code, where minor language changes could stretch our deployment timelines out as long as six weeks. With Adobe Experience Manager, we can turn pages around in hours.”

Generating content and leads with increased velocity

The National Instruments e-commerce site has 10,000 different SKUs. Because their products are complex and many customers prefer working with a salesperson, the site is an important avenue for leads.

To ensure these potential customers received the right experiences, the company organized its sales strategy around industries instead of products. As a result, they needed the tools and workflows to target different audiences with more relevant content — in real time and on a global scale.

Adobe Experience Manager was the perfect solution. It allowed them to consolidate nearly two dozen platforms into one and develop a more efficient workflow. This helped them accelerate content velocity, decrease development time, and streamline multi-language support. And because website authors don’t need training in Java or HTML, they now require half as much IT support to develop web pages.

“Before, it could take up to two weeks to author new content. Now it’s a single day process. Even if we need to create widgets or templates for a brand new experience, the process is four times faster with Adobe Experience Manager.”

Use analytics and AI to understand your customers

Rome, Italy

Eurobet, one of Italy’s leading and most trusted brands, helps online gamers place their bets for everything from sports and off-track wagering to casino-style games.

To increase customer engagement and unlock the true potential of every channel, the company wanted a deeper understanding of their customers. So they made their own bet on Adobe Experience Manager and other Adobe Experience Cloud solutions, which they used to launch their new site and deliver targeted customer experiences.

With Adobe Analytics, they’ve been able to act on deeper insights to boost revenue and reduce costs. For example, they now send targeted communications at each stage in the journey, such as incentives or next-best actions once gamers register or make their first deposit.

The payoff has been big. Eurobet’s customers are more loyal and engage with them more frequently. And the company moved from No. 6 in betting volume to No. 2.

“Adobe Experience Cloud enables us to be wherever our customers are and to create the best possible experience for each of them.”

Reaching customers in new ways with tailored experiences

Informatica has a long history of delivering data management solutions that work with a variety of platforms. As they look to the future, they want to double their value to $10 billion. To achieve that goal, they’re revamping their digital platform and transforming their online presence.

One of the big challenges they faced is delivering personalized experiences on 30 websites in eight different languages. They needed a content management system ( CMS) that could integrate with multiple back-end systems and deliver personalized experiences globally and across industries. Adobe Experience Manager Sites fits the bill.

The company has now streamlined workflows, including translation, for their global sites. Content producers are able to flag content for updating, then once it’s in Experience Manager, easily translate it and upload it to the global sites. Using AI and dynamic tag management, their marketers are able to identify content by type, product, solution, industry, and strategic value. This allows them to easily deliver the right content to their key accounts.

“If a customer is looking at specific information on our site, the sales team can initiate contact to identify interest on the spot while Experience Manager automatically delivers a tailored digital experience.”
