Some of our recent keynote speaking topics include:
Performance Secrets of the Amazon
Amazon.com sold its first book in July of 1995. The company did not start out knowing substantially more than most other businesses, but because it was willing to think ahead, develop big data technologies and push the boundaries of how best to do business on the web, it is now the largest online retailer, capturing about 30 percent of every e-commerce dollar.
Amazon is ten years ahead of the curve and even leads strongly data-centric companies like Walmart. Every business needs to ask itself whether it will adopt big data business strategies. If the answer is ‘yes,’ then right now is the time to act. The nature of the game is changing so fast that waiting out the next ten years, trying to decide how or whether to change will leave many businesses in the dust. They will not be able to compete; they won’t even be able to catch up.
In this exciting, perhaps daunting, climate, you are wondering how you can start experimenting with and implementing big data solutions that solve your business problems and fit with your business goals. But, how do you do that? What does using big data to solve business problems and fit business goals’ mean?
When people look for an example of how big data benefits business, they usually point first to Amazon as the gold standard of how an online retailer uses big data to out-perform many of its competitors. This keynote will make sure you uncover and understand how to use the hidden secrets behind Amazon’s success and make it yours.
Creating Legendary Brands: a business process to align metrics, customer experience and profits
In this motivational but practical presentation you will learn about Buyer Legends, a business process that uses storytelling techniques to map the critical paths a prospective buyer might follow on her journey to becoming a buyer. You will learn how this process aligns strategy to brand story to the buyer’s actual experience on their customer journey. Discover how these easy-to-tell stories reveal the opportunities and gaps in the customer’s experience within the current marketing & sales process. Learn how these legends communicate the brand’s story intent and critical touch point responsibilities to your entire team, within every level of an organization, from the boardroom to the stockroom. Business executives, business owner and marketers will delight in how Buyer Legends reconcile the creative process to data analysis; aligning metrics with previously hard-to-measure marketing, sales, and customer service processes. Buyer Legends deliver quick and tangible results. The first result is improved execution, communications, and testing. The second result is a big boost to the bottom line.
The Future Shopper: How Offline is the New Online
Nobody argues about if search, social, and mobile technologies impacted customers’ minds and buying behavior over the last five years. Today companies worry about keeping ahead of their competition; while the truly critical issue is keeping pace with their customers. Technological and social advances are forcing companies to embrace authenticity, improve customer experiences, or suffer the consequences . This session will show you how the convergence of communications, logistics and financial technology continue to evolve, as they always have, in order to reduce the friction in the customers’ buying process. You will understand all the ways these technologies will change our professional and personal lives in the near future. If your company isn’t prepared to handle this future, it could be after this session!

“Bryan has been the keynote speaker at our Norwegian events, Gulltaggen and the SEM-conference, several times. He is always appreciated and well liked as he has both extensive knowledge and is a really talented presenter.

Bryan inspires our audiences to think differently!”
Anders Willstedt – Managing Director, INMA/IAB Norway
Men Data: How Marketing & Sales are Benefitting from Big Data Platforms
The old direct marketing mantra of “the money is in the list” should be modified today to say “the money is in the data.” Companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon have been leveraging massive amounts of data to dominate their respective industries. For example, Amazon uses big data to improve what products to highlight, how to deliver products at a better price than most of its competitors, how to ship more effectively, and how to merchandize more persuasively.
Big data has the potential to impact every aspect of your business. In this session, we’ll explore:
- how you can leverage big data
- what tools are available
- how to act on big data insights in real time
We’ll cover everything marketers need to know about big data for marketing and sales but might have been afraid to ask. No analyst skills required.
Bryan is consistently a best-in-class presenter for Shop.org industry events. One recent 2012 Shop.org Annual Summit attendee said it best when they deemed Bryan’s big data presentation as “worth the price of the event.” Bryan’s energetic style, customized messaging, and focus on the tactical tips every conference attendee wants and needs to learn make him one of our favorite people to work with – year after year.

PPC Optimization: The Road to Recovery
Over $10 Billion dollars were spent on Pay-Per-Click advertising last year. A portion of that came out of your pocket. Are you satisfied you’re getting the maximum return on investment from it? Do you find it more and more challenging to continually increase your PPC effectiveness?
Google’s Chief Economist Hal Varian estimates that the average AdWords advertiser sees about $2 in revenue for every $1 they spend. That means that if you have margins of less than 50% on your products, you may be losing money. Only about 2% of Google AdWords advertisers will get the type of return on investment that makes continuing worthwhile. Are you part of that elite group?
PPC management can be costly and overwhelming. Never have 95 characters seemed so simple, yet proven so challenging. In this intensive workshop, you will learn tips, tricks and processes to increase your ROI and make your PPC investments worth continuing.
You’ll learn how to increase your PPC advertising ROI by 3x while mastering:
- The 7 most common PPC mistakes to avoid
- 4 hot metrics you should be monitoring and including in your monthly reports
- A powerful 3 step process to increase Click-Through-Rates (CTR) and relevancy of your ads and landing pages
- How to boost your Quality Score rankings and lower CPC costs
- The simple technique that will make you stand out from your competitors
- A 12-Step process to optimize and improve your PPC management process
A Marketing Optimization Fitness Plan: Is Your Company Fit Enough to Keep Up with Today’s Customer?
Corporate metabolism is the term Bryan uses to describe the speed at which organizations can make decisions, adapt, and evolve. Things are progressing at a faster pace today than ever before, yet corporations struggle to empower themselves to change with them.
There is no magical black box to deal with this issue, with the persuasive infomercial that promises you miraculous gains without any of the hard work required. If you bought any of these gimmicks before and are tired of their sugar-coated promises and lackluster results, then maybe you are ready to get on the marketing optimization fitness plan. It’s hard to imagine the number of companies that were innovators in a technology that were able to capture a significant portion of the marketplace because of their first mover advantage, who then lost that “startup” edge. What happened is that their corporate metabolism slows and then they struggle to grow. If you need a cautionary tale, think about why Yahoo failed versus the speedy and agile Google.
We’ll examine several corporate exercises that should help you on your way. Don’t worry if you don’t execute perfectly on the first try; the key to this plan is to continuously improve day after day.
Clicking The Ruby Slippers: Why Businesses Can’t Ignore Social Media
Your competitors are taking social media seriously – Twitter, Microsoft , Google, Amazon and Facebook are growing daily among demographics that you’d never imagine. The tactics of social media are deceptively simple but the strategy requires the urgent attention of your senior executives. Bryan & Jeffrey Eisenberg, two-time New York Times best-selling-authors and Internet marketing pioneers will explain the magic formula behind social media success. While social media is not entirely in your company’s control it has the power to make or break your business; believe that, or not, at your own peril. After this provocative marketing keynote presentation you’ll realize it’s time to revisit your marketing strategy.
Social Media is Not Media
The biggest problem with the term “social media” is that it isn’t media in the traditional sense. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and all the others social networking platforms aren’t media; they are platforms for interaction and networking. All the traditional media — print, broadcast, search, and so on — provide platforms for delivery of ads near and around relevant content. Social media are platforms for interaction and relationships, not content and ads.
Building and deepening relationships is hard work, not simply something you can buy like media.
We can’t change the name at this point but what can we do to give companies more realistic expectations and the skills to make these platforms benefit their businesses?
From Blogs to Customers … Proven Techniques for Converting Blog Visits
Driving traffic to your blog is always a top priority, but how do you generate business from those loyal readers who are so interested in your blog that they choose to subscribe to it? In this workshop let Bryan show you how to set proper goals for your blog, nurture your leads to drive blog subscribers, increase commenting, social shares and finally help you convert your blog traffic into customers.
Always Be Testing: Marketing Optimization in Challenging Times
Tough times call for tough measures. While media costs rise, marketing budgets shrink; yet, demands for accountability increase. Many businesses are starting to believe that flat revenues are the new up. Now more than ever before, organizations must optimize their marketing efforts so that every marketing dollar invested yields the maximum return on investment.
Testing seems to be the flavor of the day and A/B or multivariate testing has become a technical darling. Do you know where to begin? What exactly should you test? How do you get corporate buy-in? How can you maximize returns on testing investment? What do you have to do to go from a culture of having to “always be right” to one of “always be testing?” In this session, Bryan Eisenberg will tell you what you need to know about customers, testing and persuasion in these challenging times.
Confessions of a Conversion Rate Optimizer
With three best-selling books and more than 15 years of conversion optimization experience under his belt, Bryan Eisenberg is legendary for his work is persuasion architecture, persona development and conversion rate optimization. In this tell-all keynote, he’ll reveal the intimate secrets that few insiders ever get to hear. Learn from almost two decades of successes and failures, why he thinks most marketers are still in the dark ages in terms of conversion and testing, and how his simple three-step formula has streamlined the testing process for some of the most successful companies on the web. Then, put Bryan in the hotseat when he opens up the session for a no-holds-barred question and answer period that could transform the way you think about online marketing.
Bryan will explain how to transform your visitor’s journey from first click all the way to the completion of your website’s forms (both retail and lead gen) to maximize conversions. You’ll learn the magic three questions that have made companies like Dell, Overstock, HP, 1-800 Flowers, Acceller, Shoeline, and CafePress millions of dollars.

Testimonials about Bryan & Jeffrey as Keynote Speakers
I was watching the audience while Jeffery was doing a keynote for Convergence 2010, our digital media summit and they were memorized and hanging on to every word during his presentation. Following the presentation I was approached by several of our attendees about how good his presentation was and how much great data and great ideas they received. One attendee told me: “Just bring him back next year and have him talk for two days; I don’t think we can get enough of him.” True story.

After nine years of speaking at my conferences, Bryan consistently pegs the needle on the survey results.”

Even though he was first after lunch, a tough slot, he both educated and entertained the audience. Our highest-rated speaker of the day! We’re now working with Bryan again, in the US as well as the UK.”
Ashley Friedlein – CEO E-consultancy
Jeffrey spoke for 90 minutes to our June 2010 Austin Marketing Meetup. Despite a very last minute date change on our side, he pulled in a standing room only crowd plus we had a waiting list. His talk was engaging, fun, chock full of amazing anecdotes and actionable information. We continue to receive an overwhelming amount of positive attendee feedback on the event. We were thrilled to have Jeffrey come share his ideas and experience. We very much look forward to a repeat performance in the future – in an even bigger venue!

“Bryan is an extraordinary speaker with valuable content to share.. I can’t find the words to describe his presentation, his interactivity, his spirit. I’ve seen lots of speakers,and Bryan is world-class. Even though I was the organizer of Romanian eCommerce Awards Gala; I was left speechless by Bryan’s presentation. I just sat on my chair and I didn’t care about what was going on, about the time, about the Gala. I absorbed every last word from Bryan and I would have stayed on my chair for hours just to listen and learn from a true Guru. I’m not an important international figure, I’m not Bill Gates, I’m just Andrei Radu from Romania who is working hard for e-commerce industry, who organizes the only E-Commerce Romanian Festival for 5 years… I’ve talked with bankers, payment processors, interviewed the elite of of the foreign and Romanian eCommerce Market… None of them compare with Bryan Eisenberg.”
Andrei Radu – Organizer and Journalist – Romanian eCommerce Award Gala

Your style of engaging them in your presentation was especially effective, and one day after your talk, the students in my Business Plan class were inspired to improve conversion in their businesses, so you are already having an impact on our next set of graduates.
I know that you have a busy schedule, and it was most generous of you to take the time to share the principles of Persuasion Architecture with the NYU students and alumni.”
Dr. Marjorie Kalter – Graduate Program Director and Professor, New York University, Master’s Program in Direct and Interactive Marketing

“… training for British Information Services was like a banquet in a foreign land……very rich and filling… and with a number of surprises that challenged our thinking. It has taken us a while to fully digest. We are now applying the lessons we learned and reaping the benefits. They are just as important for an ‘information’ site like ours as for ‘commercial’ websites. Many thanks.”
Sarah Kendall- Head of Media and Marketing, British Information Services New York
“Bryan keynoted the first-ever Capterra Conference and did an excellent job. His content was exactly what our audience of software marketers needed given that website conversion is one of their largest issues. His points regarding personas were also spot-on. Bryan is an exciting and entertaining speaker and he laid everything out in a very logical and engaging way. He also did a break-out session where he picked apart websites from the audience on the fly and this received some of the top reviews from our conference. Bryan was excellent to work with and we only hope that he will help us with future events.”
Michael Ortner – CEO of Capterra
