“MarTech Maturity—Are We There Yet?” – Frank Grillo and Brett Eckrich

It is increasingly common to see estimates such as “martech spend will exceed CIO spend” or “martech spend equals one-third of the average marketing budget.” CMOs hope that by spending more on martech they can stay current. But too many martech purchase decisions under-deliver because they were based on discussions about the wrong things: cloud storage versus on premise hardware, Hadoop versus SQL, marketing versus IT ownership, and so on. Such discussions lack context. CMOs must insist that martech conversations put the customer first. 3 trends driving the Second Golden Age of Martech: ecosystems, experts, and (citizen) engineers.

But marketing technology goes beyond using a social media scheduling tool or an automated email service.

Content Marketing Strategy – The Ultimate Guide to Digital Marketing

But it is possible if you understand how content fits into your overall digital marketing strategy. And done right, your content marketing will not only attract prospects, but also move them through a marketing funnel to drive more sales and grow your business. In this chapter, we cover the basics of a successful content marketing program, including methods and metrics, the business roles that should own your content marketing, and the lingo you’ll use to talk about it.

Methods of Well-Executed Content Marketing Let's start with a thorough understanding of what we mean when we say content. You see, most businesses miss out on a lot of opportunities because their vision for content marketing is too small. As a result, they're churning out content but not getting great results. The future of personalization. The exciting promise of personalization may not be here yet (at least not at scale), but it’s not far off.

The future of personalization

Advances in technology, data, and analytics will soon allow marketers to create much more personal and “human” experiences across moments, channels, and buying stages. Physical spaces will be reconceived, and customer journeys will be supported far beyond a brand’s front door. While these opportunities are exciting, most marketers feel underequipped to deliver. A recent McKinsey survey of senior marketing leaders finds that only 15 percent of CMOs believe their company is on the right track with personalization. But there’s a big incentive to figure it out. Positioning businesses to win requires understanding the three main shifts in personalization and building up the necessary skills and capabilities to respond to them. Read on to learn what it will take to win tomorrow’s personalization game. Three major shifts will make personalization more personal.

The most important building blocks of the marketing operating model. Personalization at scale: First steps in a profitable journey to growth. What is personalization at scale?

Personalization at scale: First steps in a profitable journey to growth

Julien Boudet: Let’s start with the personalization part. Consider your daily life as a customer: you don’t want to be bothered with irrelevant coupons, emails, or texts, but you do want to be informed of offers that meet your specific needs. Personalization is an approach to customer engagement—almost a philosophy—that focuses on delivering tailored, meaningful, and relevant customer communication. On the business side, personalization allows a company to activate all the customer data available to deliver more relevant experiences for your existing customers and for your prospects as well. Kai Vollhardt: Let me take the “at scale” part. No customer left behind: How to drive growth by putting personalization at the center of your marketing. Personalization is ready for its closeup moment.

The consumer decision journey. If marketing has one goal, it’s to reach consumers at the moments that most influence their decisions. That’s why consumer electronics companies make sure not only that customers see their televisions in stores but also that those televisions display vivid high-definition pictures. It’s why, a decade ago, began offering targeted product recommendations to consumers already logged in and ready to buy. The heartbeat of modern marketing: Data activation and personalization. We’ve come a long way from “People who bought this, also bought that.” Consider the experience of a representative customer we’ll call Jane. An affluent, married mom and homeowner, Jane shops at a national clothing retailer online, in the store, and occasionally via the app. When visiting the retailer’s website in search of yoga pants, she finds style choices based on previous purchases, the purchases of customers with profiles similar to hers, and the styles of yoga pants most frequently purchased on weekends.

She adds one of the offered yoga pants to her shopping cart and checks out. With the exception of a follow-up email, most interactions with the customer stop there. Personalizing at scale. Marketing has entered its “uncanny valley” moment. That term was first used to describe the deep unease people feel when a robot or computer-generated human facsimile nearly succeeds in passing itself off as the real deal. It may walk like a person and talk like a person, but without the nuance, context, and tone that make for real engagement, what’s left rings false.

And that’s off-putting. Some marketing efforts give off the same vibe, like that creepy feeling when a casual online search leads to a glut of ads for the same pair of boots or getaway destination. While this type of engagement represents a step forward in personalizing experiences with customers, clumsy efforts at retargeting often feel intrusive and annoying. It’s worth trying to get right. RISE OF THE INFLUENCER. BY CHRISTINA MONIZMuch has been written about influencer marketing, and the rise of the micro influencers, in particular. Several decades ago, when a brand approached a PR or advertising agency for a product launch, the agency would propose a robust marketing and communications campaign – advertising across Print, Television and Outdoor media backed with an equally compelling PR campaign.
