Marketo Marketing Nation 2016 was enthralling to say the least. The plethora of speakers was something marketers only dream of. The sessions were just amazing with meaningful insights. Exciting is just one way of describing the experience.
As proud sponsors of Marketo Marketing Nation Summit for the past three years, we not only attended the event this year, but also had an engaging exhibitor booth!
Here are some of the key takeaways we captured at the summit:
- Keynote speaker Will Smith emphasized the power of being authentic, “In today’s world - we are out in the open, so the best bet to succeed is be true.”
- Jon Miller of Engagio highlighted that, "75% of marketing executives read unsolicited content if it's relevant.”
- Jeriad Zoghby of Accenture explained that, “Personalization is making it easier for consumers to buy and consume what they want, how/when they want.”
- Strategy trumps creative in email marketing campaigns. Most successful campaigns spend more time on strategy.
- Gen Z form 30% of the global population, are age 18 and younger, digital dependent and control $200B in spending annually. So your long term marketing plans need to influence this group who will soon (if not already) be your primary target audience.
- The Facebook community – with 1.65B people on Facebook, 400M on Instagram, 1B on WhatsApp and 900M on Messenger – is turning out to be the world's largest ecosystem. Facebook should be part of every Marketer's digital plan.
