The 3 Topics You Can’t Miss at Marketo’s Marketing Nation Summit
The Marketing Nation Summit is next week. Filled with intriguing session titles and knowledgeable speakers, it will be an immersion in marketing technology. While the week promises to hold an overwhelming amount of information, here’s what will be the stand-out topics at the event.
With emerging technology like predictive analytics and marketing automation tools, it’s more crucial than ever for marketers to have a source of clean, consistent data. Whether it’s creating personalized content or increasing conversions, data is the driving force behind understanding how to do this.
ROI of Personalization
From video to e-mail, many session topics include how to create customized content. People are getting the hint that customers want to be treated like individuals rather than just a person who buys things from the company. The latest wave of demand from the customer’s side is that the companies they do business with understand them and market directly to their needs.
Effective Marketing Automation
As sales teams increase the efficiency of their sales cycles, the pressure is on marketing teams to fuel the funnel and keep up with the number of leads they generate. How is this demand going to be met while still providing the customization our customers are asking for? Automation.
Andy Schick, Director of Marketing Operations at Xero, and Jay Famico, the Technology and Services Practice Director at Sirius Decisions, are both hosting interesting looking sessions on marketing automation.
