Overcome the MarTech Madness
New developments in technology is both a blessing and a curse. Marketers today have capabilities we could have only dreamed of a decade ago, but it can be overwhelming. How do you decide what's best for your brand? What data is most valuable? Technology and data are so interwoven with marketing that it’s impossible to separate the two. With everything else in the world being so overwhelming, your MarTech should be making your job easier, not more stressful. CMO Council is here to help with tons of content coming up about how to overcome the MarTech madness and find what's best for your needs.
