Writers’ Connection Announces Launch of Publisher’s Portal

Denver, CO, 2019-Oct-14 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Writers’ Connection, an online community connecting new and traditionally unpublished authors with the resources required to publish a book, today announced the launch of its much anticipated Publisher Portal. This latest community feature connects the writer and author community with publishing industry professionals seeking new manuscripts to publish.

Since October 2017, Writers’ Connection has been a support network for emerging and established self-published authors, providing access to information on traditional and self-publishing options through a blog, social media outlets, articles and events. The Publisher Portal opens up the door for aspiring and existing authors to be contacted by legitimate agents and publishers specifically seeking their work. Agents and publishers can now browse new, unpublished manuscript descriptions and directly contact authors they are interested in publishing, providing detail specific submission guidelines for their organization.

“It’s essentially the reverse of the aging traditional publishing model,” said Anne Meick, CCO of Writers’ Connection. “Writers’ Connection strives to modernize the book publishing process by allowing publishers to seek and contact an author with the story they want to publish next, down to a very specific subject, story or mixed genre. The options for new works in progress is continuous and endless.”

The Publisher Portal is the latest addition to the growing Writers’ Connection community features. To date, thousands of emerging authors have joined Writers’ Connection, making social connections, and finding guidance, and information to get from book idea to their dream of published author credit.

Launch of new global property portal Commercial People and Residential People

DURBAN, Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, 2019-Sep-26 — /EPR Network/ — Introduction of Commercial People and Residential People global property portals to the international market now live in South Africa, UK, UAE, India & Nigeria.

Global property portal allows agencies to target international buyers and reduce their overheads with free property listings.

  • Commercial & Residential property portals now live across five countries (South Africa, UK, UAE, India & Nigeria)
  • Over 350,000 listings worldwide – Aiming for 1 Million by Q4 2019.
  • Major agents include Annenberg Property Group, Baker Street Properties, Broll, CCH, Chas Everitt and Meridian Realty
  • Imminent launches planned for Mainland Europe, China and the Middle East.

Two up-and-coming global property portals Commercial People and Residential People are helping to provide a beacon of hope for real estate agents across the country with their listings and international coverage.

Currently operating across South Africa, the UK, UAE, India and Nigeria, Commercial People (and its residential property equivalent Residential People) are uniquely positioned to attract both local and overseas buyers & investors interested in purchasing property throughout South Africa.

The portals which will also launch across France, Germany, China and other key markets in 2019, is threatening to disrupt the Property24 & Private Property duopoly, offering support for agents across the country struggling to pay the high costs of membership with a radical free to list solution.

In just a few months since their launch, both Commercial & Residential People have attracted some of the biggest names across the property sector including the likes of Broll, CCH, Chas Everitt and more.

Commercial & Residential People Co-Director Christopher May says: “We are targeting both merging and established markets alike. Alongside South Africa, we are currently operating across the UK, UAE and India, and despite our brand infancy, we are well on the way to being one of the biggest portals in the UAE and on the way to becoming one of the largest in India as well”

“Our USP is simple. Every agent we’ve spoken to is concerned about the rising costs of property portals; Commercial & Residential People are both global property portals that helps to eliminate some of the expenses agencies face.

”Since launching, Residential People has found that a growing number of searches on its UK site come from prospective overseas buyers looking to relocate here or investors keen to enter the market, this figure is replicated across the South African market as well, with a particular interest in Johannesburg, commercial property for rent in Cape Town and houses for sale in Pretoria.

Mr May continues: “One of our key selling points is that we are international. It is a fact that thousands of properties in certain areas – especially commercial and new build apartments are not being bought by locals but international buyers.”

“In the UAE, for example, after only a few months, we have a 75% market share of all properties.”With the global reach of Residential People, any local South African estate agent can tap into the growing foreign investment across the country, gaining more exposure on their listings for free not only from potential customers in the UK but also from successful expats across the UAE, and soon China.

Mr May concludes: “We want to make it abundantly clear that our aim is to work with agents and build an alternative to some of the portals that exist today. While we understand that international attention doesn’t appeal to every South African agent, our nationwide coverage can ensure increased exposure for the local market as well.  With agents’ support, we are hoping to disrupt the status quo and give agents an alternative to the current duopoly”

CDP Industry Update July 2019: Fifteen of the nineteen new CDP vendors are from outside the U.S.

SWARTHMORE, PA, U.S.A., 8-Aug-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The Customer Data Platform Industry continued its rapid growth in the first half of 2019, according to the CDP Institute’s semi-annual Industry Update. The industry added nineteen vendors and raised $317 million in new capital during the period while employment was up 71% over the previous year.

Major shifts in the market included expansion in Europe, EMEA, and APAC. Fifteen of the nineteen new CDP vendors are from outside the U.S. The Institute also confirmed its projection for the CDP industry to reach the $1 billion revenue in 2019.

Other milestones the report were:

  • More Funding. Cumulative funding for the industry grew by $680 million, reflecting funding during the period plus previous funding for vendors just entering the industry.
  • Strategic acquisitions. The period saw two CDP acquisitions: data integration specialist Allsight by Informatica and B2B CDP Lattice Engines by Dun & Bradstreet. Neither buyer is primarily a marketing system vendor, illustrating the value that companies in related sectors now see in CDP functions.
  • Operational CDPs. The period also saw addition of three vendors with a primarily operational focus: two customer success systems (Gainsight and Totango) and one in healthcare (Healthgrades). These firms represent the leading edge of a new class of CDP vendors that is expected to grow rapidly.
  • Marketing Cloud entrants. Salesforce, Adobe, and Oracle all announced future CDP products that are expected to be available before the end of 2019. These attracted new attention and are expected to substantially expand CDP awareness and adoption.

Vendor Categories

The CDP Institute report groups CDP vendors into three categories based on the functions provided by their systems. Categories are:

  • Access. These systems gather customer data from source systems, link data to customer identities, and store the results in a persistent database available to external systems. This is the minimum set of functions required to meet the definition of a CDP.
  • Analytics. These systems provide data assembly plus analytical applications. The applications always include customer segmentation and sometimes extend to machine learning, predictive modeling, revenue attribution, and journey mapping. These systems often automate the distribution of segment lists to marketing automation or advanced analytics products.
  • Campaigns. These systems provide data assembly, analytics, and customer treatments. These treatments may be personalized messages, real time interactions, product or content recommendations, outbound marketing campaigns, customer journey orchestration, or other contacts. What distinguishes them from segmentation is they also specify the message to be delivered.

CDP Institute Global Member Survey 2019: CDP users have higher satisfaction than non-users among both business and consumer marketers

SWARTHMORE, PA, 30-May-2019 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Business marketers are catching up with consumer marketers in Customer Data Platform deployments, according to a global member survey released today by the Customer Data Platform Institute.

The survey found that 41% of companies selling to consumers are in the process of deploying a CDP, compared with just 19% of companies selling to business. But 34% of the B2B companies plan to start deployment within the next twelve months, compared to only 19% of consumer brands.

Other survey finding suggest the change is coming just in time:

  • Business marketers are more likely than consumer marketers to rely on CRM or marketing automation systems to unify their customer data (22% vs 8%).
  • Business marketers using CRM or marketing automation in this way have below-average satisfaction with their martech investments.
  • CDP users have higher satisfaction than non-users among both business and consumer marketers.

Other survey findings include:

  • consumer marketers have more fragmented data than B2B marketers, with 62% reporting many disconnected systems compared with 48% of B2B marketers.
  • inability to assemble unified customer data is the most-cited obstacle to using customer data well, listed by 63% of respondents compared with incapable delivery systems (54%) or inaccessible source data (47%).
  • a unified customer view is the most important CDP benefit, listed by 86% of respondents. Many fewer cited applications such as predictive modeling (59%), message selection (49%) or cross-channel orchestration (49%).
  • companies with a specialized martech manager or staff are more satisfied with their marketing technology results than firms where marketing technology is run by a central IT department or left to individual groups within marketing.

RealCDP aims at reducing the confusion plaguing the Customer Data Platform industry

SAN JOSE, CA, USA, 4-Apr-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The Customer Data Platform Institute today launched RealCDP, a program to reduce the confusion plaguing the Customer Data Platform industry.  RealCDP has two components:

  • RealCDP certification, a five point checklist of core capabilities needed to build a unified, sharable customer database.
  • CDPFinder templates and vendor information to help buyers find the right CDP for their needs

“The CDP industry faces two challenges,” said CDP Institute Founder David Raab. “First, many firms offering a CDP or CDP alternative fail to build the complete, shareable customer database that is the heart of the CDP concept.  Second, legitimate CDPs vary hugely in the additional features they provide, leaving buyers confused by the range of options.  These two programs address each challenge separately and, taken together, we hope they will make it easier for buyers to find the products they truly need – and avoid alternatives that will leave them disappointed.”

Dousic is an interactive social media platform that engages users with a diverse discovery experience. In the Dousic community the public can personalize their content and creators can monetize their products.

“With Dousic we wanted to create a social media platform for people like photographers, models, authors and musicians, so that they have total control of their destiny by owning their brands and products via the website and the App. In addition, Dousic is a fully functioning social media platform giving users a wide variety of connectivity such as chat, audio or video calls, all in one convenient location”, said Michael Ferguson, DMG Executive Vice President/Founder.

DMG Founder and CEO, Brian Moore, emphasized that “the Indie Music Industry has been trying to find its footing for some time and from where I sit there is still a clear lack of understanding of how to ensure that Indie Creators get an even playing field and are being properly compensated. Accordingly, we have designed Dousic to give them back brand control and content ownership.”

Following on from SXSW, our future website and App enhancements will ensure Dousic is a place where Creators maintain full ownership and control, giving them stronger leverage when in negotiations with Record Labels.

  • how CDP fits into the larger marketing data architecture, key benefits provided by CDPs, and an overview of the CDP industry and trends.
  • how CDP relates to business and marketing strategy, developing CDP use cases, and uncovering requirements for CDP success.
  • selecting the right CDP, including requirements definition, key differentiators, specific features to look for and running an effective selection process.

MÜNCHEN, 17-Dec-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Marketer können heutzutage auf eine wahre Flut von Daten zugreifen, stehen jedoch mehr denn je vor der Schwierigkeit, diese in einem nutzbaren Format zusammenzufassen. Zukünftig wird es vor allem darauf ankommen, die Architektur von Marketing-Automation-Systemen weiterzuentwickeln, um schnell auf neue Herausforderungen reagieren zu können. Die Technologie der Customer Data Platform (CDP) verspricht, dieses Problem durch den Einsatz leicht zu verteilender Systeme zur Konsolidierung und gemeinsamen Nutzung von Daten und Ausspielung von Kampagnen in Echtzeit zu lösen. Marketer, IT-Experten und Manager fragen sich jedoch zu Recht: Kann CDP dieses Versprechen auch halten?

Um diese Frage zu beantworten, veranstaltet das Customer Data Platform Institute (CDPI) gemeinsam mit b.telligent am 29. Januar einen Intensiv-Workshop zum Thema „Making the Most of Customer Data Platforms“. Die Veranstaltung gewährt einen fundierten Einblick in einen sich rapide entwickelnden Sektor mit einem prognostizierten Umsatz von über 200 Mio. Euro in Europa in 2019.

Das Event in München ist Teil einer Veranstaltungsreihe, die im Laufe von 2019 vom CDPI und seinen Partnern in Europa und Großbritannien ausgerichtet wird und der einzige in Deutschland. Der gemeinsam mit b.telligent veranstaltete Workshop richtet sich an Senior Professionals aus den Bereichen Marketing, E-Commerce, CRM und CX und wird sich mit folgenden Themen befassen:

  • Wie sich eine Customer Data Platform (CDP) in die allgemeine Marketing-Datenarchitektur einfügt, die Hauptnutzen von CDPs und ein Überblick über die CDP-Branche und aktuelle Trends
  • Wie sich eine CDP in die Geschäfts- und Marketingstrategie einfügt, die Entwicklung von CDP-Anwendungsfällen sowie eine Darstellung der Anforderungen für den CDP-Erfolg.
  • Die Auswahl der passenden CDP, einschließlich von Anforderungsdefinition, Hauptunterscheidungsmerkmalen, speziellen Funktionen, auf die es ankommt, sowie dem Ablauf eines effektiven Auswahlprozesses.
  • CDP-Einführungsplanung, einschließlich einer Bereitschafts-Checkliste, die Überwindung organisatorischer Hürden, Projektplanung sowie Festlegung der richtigen Deployment-Sequenz.

Das nehmen Teilnehmer aus dem Workshop mit:

  • Checkliste von Marketingtechnologiefunktionen für die bestmögliche Ausnutzung von CDP
  • Zuordnung von CDP-Anwendungsfällen zu CDP-Systemanforderungen
  • 27 Schlüsselfunktionen von CDP und wie man erkennt, welche man benötigt
