Automation, digital transformation, cloud and SaaS are causing business disruption. Global economic headwinds are driving consolidation and retrenchment. Technology marketers are rising to the challenge of crafting a response to these forces and emerging as key drivers of business impact. Better, creative application of technology is resulting in newer and better ways of doing business and transforming the customer experience. A new type of executive is rising at the core of this transformation – the efficient marketer, someone who harnesses technology and business knowledge to improve the business impact of marketing. A marketer who understands the value of automation, analytics, social selling, account based marketing and thought leadership and couples it with business insights to create compelling customer conversations in the most efficient way possible. A marketer who measures impact and can dynamically change plans to meet business objectives. 2017 welcomes The Efficient Marketer.
