GoDaddy Brings Intuitive Email Marketing To Small Businesses - MarketWatch | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it

The new GoDaddy Email Marketing product is the latest addition to the company's suite of applications that help small businesses run more efficiently and grow, while providing a holistic customer experience. GoDaddy Email Marketing is now integrated with GoDaddy Website Builder and is also available as a standalone product.

GoDaddy Email Marketing is easy-to-use, allowing small business customers to create email marketing campaigns without the complicated set up they might get from other email marketing platforms. A simple, affordable way for small businesses to stay competitive, the service was rolled out in March, stemming from the acquisition of Mad Mimi in August, 2014. The former Mad Mimi team leveraged its substantial experience serving small business customers with world-class marketing solutions and applied the same level of expertise to GoDaddy Email Marketing.

Myth Busting 101: Insights IntoThe B2B Buyer Journey - Forrester

Myth Busting 101: Insights IntoThe B2B Buyer Journey - Forrester | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
It’s still true that today’s buyers control their journey through the buying cycle much more than today’s vendors control the selling cycle. In a recent survey, 74% of business buyers told Forrester they conduct more than half of their research online before making an offline purchase. This buyer dynamic changes the role of B2B marketing in a fundamental way.  But that’s where the prevailing knowledge about ‘today’s buyer’ will fail you.

All of these arresting statistics about buyers represent buyer behavior on average.   Averages are great because they show us directional change in the aggregate. But savvy marketing practitioners know that it’s irresponsible to build your customer engagement strategy on aggregate trends. The behavior and proclivities of your buyers might be very different from those averages.

You need to engineer a cross-channel, engagement strategy to successfully engage with your buyers, who proactively seek the information they need to advance their decision process.  Buyer journey mapping is a technique B2B marketers can use to understand your buyers' path to purchase.

iNeoMarketing's insight:

Here's the deal: the buyer's journey differs from person to person. So what to do? As I say to all clients: Be There. Just make sure you're there with the right information.

The Persona Is Dead, Long Live The Person - MediaPost

The Persona Is Dead, Long Live The Person - MediaPost | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
Because personas are intended as a bridging tool, they often remain stranded in no-man’s land. To use them effectively, practitioners should feel comfortable living in this gap between quant and qual.  Too far one way or the other, and it’s a pretty safe bet that personas will either be used incorrectly or be discarded entirely.

Because of this potential for abuse, maybe it’s time we threw personas in the trash bin. I suspect they may be doing more harm than good to the practice of marketing. Even at their best, personas were meant as a more empathetic tool to allow you to think through interactions with a real live person in mind. But in order to make personas play nice with real data, you have to be very diligent about continually refining personas based on that data.

The holy grail of marketing would be to somehow give real-time data a human face. If we could find a way to bridge left-brain logic and right-brain empathy in real time to discover insights that were grounded in data but centered in the context of a real person’s behaviors, marketing would take a huge leap forward.

iNeoMarketing's insight:

True personalization is on its way, negating the need for anything persona. At this point, I would spend resources on implementing personalization and not personafication.
