There’s little doubt that technology exists to make our lives easier. But in today’s environment there is also a level of complexity that exists when multiple technologies are used within an organization. A case in point is your marketing agency; you’ll most likely use a number of systems, anywhere from three to 10, to help your teams deliver on client campaigns. Everything from digital asset management and usage rights management, to distribution and campaign management and tracking.
By leveraging semantic database technology marketing organiations can have greater control over digital assets and be able to correlate that information with other assets and distinguish relationships between digital assets and target audience.
The benefits of working with a technology partner are well-known and extensive: lowering costs, reducing risk, gaining outside expertise, spinning up new projects quickly, and more.
With every new project comes the task of who is available to work on it on time, on task and on budget. Resource allocation applications may be the magic wand you need to wrangle in your projects. Resource allocation tools help you understand the team, their availability (any vacations coming up?) and their current and projected workload.
I recently became the first ever Customer Success Manager (CSM) at IO Integration. This means it is now officially my job to make sure that IOI customers stay IOI customers. It means making sure our clients have solutions, technologies, and services that are aligned with their desired outcomes. Fortunately, I have a team of smart, driven, innovative, and customer-minded individuals to help me help our customers. When marketing and creative operations leaders come to us for advice on making technology decisions, I know we have the expertise and experience to guide them to the best solutions to meet their needs. But, I also know that a great CSM possesses a quality that is more than a line item on a resume, and that is a passion for helping customers. I now have a role where I get to focus that passion and enthusiasm into continuously sharing information and advising customers on ways their companies can achieve long-term success with their marketing and creative operations technology investments.
By this point, every marketer understands that “Content is King.” Your ability to create content, and a lot of it, is the backbone of any marketing program and particularly if you have an inbound marketing strategy. The solutions used to host, share, deliver and track content are many with Hubspot, Marketo, and Pardot being the more recognizable names in this space. The point of this article, is about Work In Progress, aka, WIP. Regardless of what Inbound software you use to manage your marketing engagement, you still have to have a completely separate process for the actual creation of the content, or at least you should.
