CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU SIMPLIFIES CREDIT CARD AGREEMENTS WITH CONSUMER INSIGHTS
Two-thirds of consumers say they don't understand how their credit cards work-not surprising as the typical agreement is eight or nine pages with legal language and hard to read font. In December 2011, the government unveiled a prototype of a new credit card agreement, with the goal of making sure consumers understand what they're getting into when they get a new card. The new agreement is shorter, written in plain language, and explains key features upfront-all changes implemented from consumer insights. In this session you will learn about the consumer insights that lead to the simplified agreement and you will also hear how simplified design approaches can reform the banking industry for consumers.

FROM INSIGHTS TO ACTION: UNLOCKING YOUR BRAND'S POTENTIAL
Tapping into customer insights isn't as easy as it used to be. It's not just about research done months in advance and then rolled out in a media plan. It's about real-time conversations, real-time adjustments, and partnering with your customer to mold and nurture your brand. In this session you will learn how BabyCenter leverages consumer insights to power everything-from product innovation and content development to connecting marketers with consumers to help them socialize the message, evangelize their product, and amplify their brand.

IS IT THE MESSAGE OR THE MEDIUM - OR BOTH? LEVERAGE CUSTOMER INFORMATION TO ACHIEVE ROI
The results of a recent study conducted for Xerox Corporation confirm that people are more likely to respond to information and offers that are relevant to them and their specific interests, and communicated through the channels they prefer. Although this type of individual attention seems a daunting task in today's fast-paced, digital environment, it is possible and even practical to engage in ongoing, one-to-one communications with each of your customers, across multiple media channels. In this session, you will learn more about the results of the survey, the benefits of personalized, customized communications, existing technology that enables us to have individualized customer relationships, and how you can leverage your customer information to achieve dramatic returns on your marketing investments.
