MarTech plays a crucial role in marketing. With so much of the buyer’s journey being online, MarTech solutions can shine a light on that journey and create opportunities for businesses to increase their customer base, which in turn will boost revenue.
The development of MarTech is like holding up a mirror to how marketing has changed over the last 10 or 15 years, and in this episode of Let’s Talk Revenue Marketing, we’re exploring that development. Our podcast host, Paul Sweeney, is joined by Principal Consultant, Co-founder, and Director of BabelQuest, Eric Murphy, to discuss all things MarTech.
Key talking points:
- The move from point solutions to platforms
- Integrated CRM systems
- Does MarTech offer a better experience for the buyer?
- User adoption of MarTech tools
- The future of marketing automation and how marketers can prepare
