5. The SaaS Email Marketing Playbook: Convert Leads, Increase Customer Retention, and Close More Recurring Revenue With Email
Author: by Étienne Garbugli
Published at: Étienne Garbugli (April 24, 2020)
“A great no-BS resource where you are guaranteed to pick up useful tips and approaches, whether you’re an email pro or just starting out.” Andrus Purde, Founder & CEO, Outfunnel- -No matter how great your product is, it’s very likely that 4060% of free trials never see your product a second time.
This means that you stand to lose up to 60% of your hard-earned signups. Do you just let them go? Email marketing is one of the highest leverage activities in a SaaS business. It can help:increase onboarding and trial conversions;reduce churn; andgrow monthly recurring revenue (MRR).
By introducing a single campaign today, you could significantly increase your conversions, and get the benefits of that increase predictably and repeatedly, week after week. That’s the beauty of automation. It’s also how we created an upsell program at LANDR that was generating up to 42% of weekly subscription conversions.
When I joined LANDR, we were only sending 3 automated emails (and only 1 of those was performing). By focusing on sending the right email to the right user at the right time, performance jumped up, with increases in:product onboarding completion;engagement;sales; andupgrades to annual subscriptions.

7. A First Course in Systems Biology
Author: by Eberhard Voit
Published at: Garland Science; 2nd edition (September 5, 2017)
A First Course in Systems Biology is an introduction for advanced undergraduate and graduate students to the growing field of systems biology. Its main focus is the development of computational models and their applications to diverse biological systems. The book begins with the fundamentals of modeling, then reviews features of the molecular inventories that bring biological systems to life and discusses case studies that represent some of the frontiers in systems biology and synthetic biology.
In this way, it provides the reader with a comprehensive background and access to methods for executing standard systems biology tasks, understanding the modern literature, and launching into specialized courses or projects that address biological questions using theoretical and computational means.
New topics in this edition include: default modules for model design, limit cycles and chaos, parameter estimation in Excel, model representations of gene regulation through transcription factors, derivation of the Michaelis-Menten rate law from the original conceptual model, different types of inhibition, hysteresis, a model of differentiation, system adaptation to persistent signals, nonlinear nullclines, PBPK models, and elementary modes.
8. Creating Autonomous Vehicle Systems (Synthesis Lectures on Computer Science)
Author: by Shaoshan Liu
Published at: Morgan & Claypool Publishers (October 25, 2017)
This book is the first technical overview of autonomous vehicles written for a general computing and engineering audience. The authors share their practical experiences of creating autonomous vehicle systems. These systems are complex, consisting of three major subsystems: (1) algorithms for localization, perception, and planning and control; (2) client systems, such as the robotics operating system and hardware platform; and (3) the cloud platform, which includes data storage, simulation, high-definition (HD) mapping, and deep learning model training.
The algorithm subsystem extracts meaningful information from sensor raw data to understand its environment and make decisions about its actions. The client subsystem integrates these algorithms to meet real-time and reliability requirements. The cloud platform provides offline computing and storage capabilities for autonomous vehicles.
Using the cloud platform, we are able to test new algorithms and update the HD map-plus, train better recognition, tracking, and decision models. This book consists of nine chapters. Chapter 1 provides an overview of autonomous vehicle systems; Chapter 2 focuses on localization technologies; Chapter 3 discusses traditional techniques used for perception; Chapter 4 discusses deep learning based techniques for perception; Chapter 5 introduces the planning and control sub-system, especially prediction and routing technologies; Chapter 6 focuses on motion planning and feedback control of the planning and control subsystem; Chapter 7 introduces reinforcement learning-based planning and control; Chapter 8 delves into the details of client systems design; and Chapter 9 provides the details of cloud platforms for autonomous driving.

11. The Personalization Paradox: Why Companies Fail (and How To Succeed) at Delivering Personalized Experiences at Scale
Author: by Val Swisher
Published at: XML Press (March 8, 2021)
According to Infosys, 86% of consumers surveyed indicated that personalized content has some impact on what they purchase and 25% said that personalization plays a large role in their purchases. And yet, looking at the data, two things stand out: 1) Most companies say that personalizing the customer experience is a critical “must have,” and they have the statistics to back it up.
2) Very few companies believe they are delivering enough personalized content, or deliver it well. What’s holding these companies back from their personalization goals? And how can you avoid the pitfalls and make personalization possible with your own enterprise content? In this book, global content strategy expert Val Swisher and senior content strategist Regina Lynn Preciado show you exactly what it takes to deliver personalized experiences at scale.
You’ll learn: Why personalized content is imperative to the enterpriseWhy so many companies fail to deliver – and how to avoid the pitfallsThe five dimensions of content standardizationHow to bring people, technology, and process togetherThe impact of big data and artificial intelligenceThe only way to deliver personalized content at scale is to automate the process at the point of delivery.
