Why partnerships are a valuable ingredient in the marketing mix. Partnership is a well-established marketing strategy for increasing reach and conversion, helping brands both expand reach and drive conversion. But as new research shows, the potential of partnership can be enhanced further through investing in latest-generation partnership management platforms.

More than half of the marketers surveyed reported that partnership represented a significant portion of their strategy, with 16% stating they relied on partnerships more than any other marketing channel. However, the report also found that overcoming issues encountered in legacy partnership programs could further boost its uptake, especially if marketers were able to address lingering concerns regarding brand integrity and transparency.

Redefining Marketing’s Identity: Developing Marketing-Led Companies In Tech-Driven Industries. What is your favorite misconception about marketing? Mine is that marketing is a hit to the company’s bottom line: an expensive, ancillary department meant to pump out brochures, social media posts and press releases and make noise at trade shows. After more than 15 years in a largely engineering- and sales-driven industry, I am no longer shocked when I hear people express such views about marketing. That does not mean I agree with or support the idea that marketing is nothing more than a content factory meant to serve “more important” parts of the business, like R&D and sales. Instead of getting frustrated, now I take action. Have a read to this very interesting article which is what most of us have to deal with on a daily basis.
Three Key Points To Consider When Creating An AI Marketing Strategy. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the next big thing in marketing. Why? Consumers are more demanding than ever, and tomorrow they’ll want even more. Manual teams simply can’t keep up with the demands for instant-response chatbots, personalized digital experiences and more. Especially at scale. Automation is the only way. And AI is the answer.

Is B2B marketing in need of an urgent re-invention? B2B companies have relied on rational and sedate, data-driven marketing strategies historically, but as they face up to younger decision makers, we ask if they need to change tack and embrace more creativity in their communication.
