Ask Your Developer: How to Harness the Power of Software Developers and Win in the 21st Century

kindle-online-pdf-ask-your-developer-how-to-harness-the-power-of-software-developers-and-win-in-the-21st-century-1-638
amazon

From banking and retail to insurance and finance, every industry is turning digital, and every company needs the best software to win the hearts and minds of customers. The landscape has shifted from the classic build vs. buy question, to one of build vs. die. Companies have to get this right to survive. But how do they make this transition?

Software developers are sought after, highly paid, and desperately needed to compete in the modern, digital economy. Yet most companies treat them like digital factory workers without really understanding how to unleash their full potential. Lawson argues that developers are the creative workforce who can solve major business problems and create hit products for customers—not just grind through rote tasks. From Google and Amazon to one-person online software companies—companies that bring software developers in as partners are winning. Lawson shows how leaders who build industry-changing software products consistently do three things well. First, they understand why software developers matter more than ever. Second, they understand developers and know how to motivate them. And third, they invest in their developers' success.

As a software developer and public company CEO, Lawson uses his unique position to bridge the language and tools executives use with the unique culture of high performing, creative software developers. Ask Your Developer is a toolkit to help business leaders, product managers, technical leaders, software developers, and executives achieve their common goal—building great digital products and experiences.

Crawl Walk Run

41yzu-K3sCL
amazon

In 2019, $130 billion was spent on digital advertising alone, as major retailers, consumer packaged goods companies (CPG), and media outlets embraced the ever-online customer. Despite these massive digital marketing budgets driving global ad campaigns, many marketers still lack the confidence to answer the age-old question: Is my campaign working?

Crawl, Walk, Run is your practical guide for navigating each stage of analytics maturity, taking you step-by-step through an analytics maturity framework to achieve greater efficiency and increased confidence in your marketing decisions. Alex Yastrebenetsky, Michael Loban, and contributors from the InfoTrust team (Amin Shawki, Andy Gibson, Ariel Opelt, Brad Prenger, Chris Vaughan, Kent Oldham, Lucas Long, Melanie Bowles, Pam Castricone, Tyler Blatt, and Stacey Shiring) discuss six focus areas in digital transformation, including how to choose the right platform, staff and upskill your team, and build effective processes. You’ll also learn why Google Marketing Platform dominates the industry, how elements like Google Analytics 360 and Google Optimize 360 work together, and how data governance is implemented to properly follow new privacy guidelines (such as the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA).Crawl, Walk, Run also includes a detailed chapter on App + Web properties, which serves as the basis of Google Analytics 4. In fact, Crawl, Walk, Run is the only book currently on the market (as of October 2020) that covers the key functionality of Google Analytics 4.


Customer Data & Privacy

41ofTBTnxKL._SX331_BO1204203200_
amazon

Collect data and build trust.

With the rise of data science and machine learning, companies are awash in customer data and powerful new ways to gain insight from that data. But in the absence of regulation and clear guidelines from most federal or state governments, it's difficult for companies to understand what qualifies as reasonable use and then determine how to act in the best interest of their customers. How do they build, not erode, trust?

Customer Data and Privacy: The Insights You Need from Harvard Business Review brings you today's most essential thinking on customer data and privacy to help you understand the tangled interdependencies and complexities of this evolving issue. The lessons in this book will help you develop strategies that allow your company to be a good steward, collecting, using, and storing customer data responsibly.

 

Customer Data Platforms

Customer-Data-Platform-Book
amazon

Marketers are faced with a stark and challenging dilemma: customers demand deep personalization, but they are increasingly leery of offering the type of personal data required to make it happen. As a solution to this problem, Customer Data Platforms have come to the fore, offering companies a way to capture, unify, activate, and analyze customer data. CDPs are the hottest marketing technology around today, but are they worthy of the hype? Customer Data Platforms takes a deep dive into everything CDP so you can learn how to steer your firm toward the future of personalization.

Over the years, many of us have built byzantine “stacks” of various marketing and advertising technology in an attempt to deliver the fabled “right person, right message, right time” experience. This can lead to siloed systems, disconnected processes, and legacy technical debt. CDPs offer a way to simplify the stack and deliver a balanced and engaging customer experience. Customer Data Platforms breaks down the fundamentals, including how to:

  • Understand the problems of managing customer data
  • Understand what CDPs are and what they do (and don’t do)
  • Organize and harmonize customer data for use in marketing
  • Build a safe, compliant first-party data asset that your brand can use as fuel
  • Create a data-driven culture that puts customers at the center of everything you do
  • Understand how to use AI and machine learning to drive the future of personalization
  • Orchestrate modern customer journeys that react to customers in real-time

Customer Relationship Management: Concepts and Technologies

crm-cand-t
amazon

Customer Relationship Management, Fourth Edition continues to be the go-to CRM guide explaining with unrivalled clarity what CRM is, its uses, benefits and implementation. Buttle and Maklan take a managerial perspective to track the role of CRM throughout the customer journey stages of acquisition, retention and development. Theoretically sound and managerially relevant, the book is liberally illustrated with examples of technology applications that support marketing, sales and service teams as they interact with customers, but assumes no deep technical knowledge on the reader’s part. The book is structured around three core types of CRM – strategic, operational and analytical – and throughout each chapter, case illustrations of CRM in practice and images of CRM software demystify the technicalities.

With the rising cost of data breaches, executives need to understand the basics of cybersecurity so they can make strategic decisions that keep companies out of headlines and legal battles.

As this book explains, executives can build systems and processes that track gaps and security problems while still allowing for innovation and achievement of business objectives.


Data Story: Explain Data and Inspire Action Through Story

Screen-Shot-2021-01-19-at-12.35.02-PM
amazon

Scientists have proven that stories make the brain light up in ways no other form of communication does. Using story frameworks as a communication device for data will help make your recommendations stick and be acted on.

Organizations use data to identify problems or opportunities. The actions others may need to take today from your insights in data could reverse or improve the trajectory of your future data. So, communicating data well, drives very important outcomes.

Even though most roles depend on data, communicating well is the top skill gap in roles using data. The essential skill for today’s leaders (and aspiring leaders) is shaping data into narratives that make a clear recommendation and inspire others to act.

Almost every role today uses data for decision making. As you grow in your career, you can become a strategic advisor and ultimately a leader using data to shape a future where humanity and organizations flourish.

Duarte and her team have culled through thousands of data slides of her clients in technology, finance, healthcare, and consumer products, to decode how the highest performing brands communicate with data.

DataStory teaches you the most effective ways to turn your data into narratives that blend the power of language, numbers, and graphics. This book is not about visualizing data, there are plenty of books covering that. Instead, you’ll learn how to transform numbers into narratives to drive action.

  • It will help you communicate data in a way that creates outcomes both inside and outside your own organization.
  • It will help you earn a reputation as a trusted advisor, which will advance your career.
  • it will help your organization make faster decisions and inspire others to act on them!

Nancy Duarte is one of the preeminent storytellers in American business and the acclaimed author of Slide:ologyResonate, and the HBR Guide to Persuasive Presentations comes this book that will help you transform numbers into narratives.

Voice Content and Usability

Voice-Content
aba-logo-2

Picture this: You’ve spent years honing and perfecting your content, looking for stray siloes here and tamping down orphaned pages there. You’ve made it. The website you’ve carefully crafted is semantically rich, astutely architected, and eminently navigable. But then the overzealous executive team and ambitious product manager call a meeting and demand the ability to deliver the same content via voice, through Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and devices you might have at home but that have long felt impenetrable.

What do you do? How do you build voice content where “picture this” becomes an impossibility? where leafing through becomes listening through? where navigating becomes negotiating?

The ongoing technological “quickening” and accelerating demands for multichannel convenience are upending all the old paradigms we used to hold dear: links and sitemaps, navbars and breadcrumbs, calls to action and clicks to subscribe. When all your users have in front of them is a smart speaker without a screen, where do you even begin when it comes to design, content strategy, and accessibility?

Voice Content and Usability will give you the techniques and insights you need to make voice content a tangible—and talkable—reality. Learn from the real-world example of Ask GeorgiaGov, the first-ever Alexa skill for residents of the state of Georgia and one of the earliest content-driven voice interfaces. Whether you’ve never thought about voice interfaces before or you’re knee-deep in an ongoing voice project, join me as we move away from screens and scrollbars and into the realm of sound and speech.

But don’t take my word for it. By the end, your content will speak for itself.

Conversational Marketing

convmark
amazon

Conversational Marketing is the definitive guide to generating better leads and closing more sales. Traditional sales and marketing methods have failed to keep pace with the way modern, internet-savvy consumers purchase goods and services. Modern messaging apps, which allow for real-time conversations and instant feedback, have transformed the way we interact in our personal and professional lives, yet most businesses still rely on 20th century technology to communicate with 21st century customers. Online forms, email inquiries, and follow-up sales calls don’t provide the immediacy that modern consumers expect. Conversational marketing and sales are part of a new methodology centered around real-time, one-on-one conversations with customers via chatbots and messaging.  By allowing your business to communicate with customers in real time―when it’s most convenient for them―conversational marketing improves the customer experience, generates more leads, and helps you convert more leads into customers.

Change across business is accelerating, but the lifespan of companies is decreasing as leaders face a growing abundance of decisions to make, data to process and technology that threatens even the most established business models. These forces could destroy your company or, with the right strategy in place, help you transform it into a market leader. Digital Darwinism lends a guiding hand through the turbulence, offering practical strategies while sounding a call to action that lights a fire underneath complacency to inspire creative change.

Digital Darwinism shines a light on the future by exploring technology, society and lessons from the past so you can understand how to adapt, what to embrace and what to ignore. Tom Goodwin proves that assumptions the business world has previously made about "digital" are wrong: incremental change isn't good enough, adding technology at the edges won't work and digital isn't a thing - it's everything. If you want your organization to succeed in the post-digital age, you need to be enlightened by Digital Darwinism.

Marketing High Technology: An Insider's View

Marketing-High-Tech
amazon

Marketing is civilized warfare. And as high-tech products become increasingly standardized—practically identical, from the customer's point of view—it is marketing that spells life or death for new devices or entire firms. In a book that is as fascinating as it is pragmatic, William H. Davidow, a legend in Silicon Valley, where he was described as "the driving force behind the micro processor explosion," tells how to fight the marketing battle in the intensely competitive world of high-tech companies—and win.

Blunt, pithy, and knowledgeable, Davidow draws on his successful marketing experience at Intel Corporation to create a complete program for marketing victory. He drives home the basics, such as how to go head-on against the competition; how to "plan products, not devices"; how to give products a "soul"; and how to engineer promotions, market internationally, motivate salespeople, and rally distributors. Above all, he demonstrates the critical importance of servicing and supporting customers. Total customer satisfaction, Davidow makes clear, must be every high-tech marketer's ultimate goal.

The only comprehensive marketing strategy book by an insider, Marketing High Technology looks behind the scenes at industry-shaking clashes involving Apple and IBM, Visicorp and Lotus, Texas Instruments and National Semiconductor. He recounts his own involvement in Crush, Intel's innovative marketing offensive against Motorola, to demonstrate, step-by-step, how it became an industry prototype for a winning high-tech campaign.

Davidow clearly spells out sixteen principles which increase the effectiveness of marketing programs. From examples as diverse as a Rolling Stones concert and a microprocessor chip, he defines a true "product." He analyzes and explains in new ways the strategic importance of distribution as it relates to market sector, pricing, and the pitfalls it entails. He challenges some traditional marketing theory and provides unique and important insights developed from over twenty years in the high-tech field. From an all-encompassing philosophy that great marketing is a crusade requiring total commitment, to a careful study of the cost of attacking a competitor, this book is an essential tool for survival in today's high-risk, fast- changing, and very lucrative high-tech arena.
