We can do wonderful things with marketing technology these days.
Choosing a marketing automation vendor can be a complex, multi-step procedure involving input from decision-makers across the business – to say nothing of the price tag attached.
It’s fair to say that marketers have lately been spending a bit too much time on new, unproven channels. In the past couple of years, many have dabbled with 3D printing, VR, AR and even blockchain with little to show for their efforts.
Marketing automation software is the champion of efficiency – except for when it isn’t.
Marketers have been talking about artificial intelligence (AI) marketing for some time now.
But many are still wondering, what exactly can AI marketing do for us right now?
Life continues to get more and more difficult for marketers, particularly those who target users as precisely as possible.
Earlier this week, Mozilla announced that it has added Opt-in Tracking Protection to Firefox Quantum, the latest version of its popular browser. Opt-in Tracking Protection enables users to block trackers, many of which are used by ad networks, all time time. Previously, Firefox blocked trackers only when users were browsing in private mode.
Marketing automation continues to be one of the biggest martech success stories of the past few years.
Econsultancy recently conducted a survey of companies in Australia and New Zealand and found that nearly four in five (79%) of brand marketers are already using marketing automation.
Automation has been a marketing goal for many years now. Most companies have identified tasks, such as abandoned cart emails, which are better handled by an always-on algorithm than a marketer.
Marketing automation correlates with marketing success in B2B, but too few companies are getting the most from their chosen software.
This is symptomatic of B2B marketing right now, with lots of great tech available but not enough skills to make the most of it.
