Symantec’s marketing technologist is an evangelist, an influencer, and a negotiator

I’m incredibly excited to share with you the following Q&A with Bala Kudaravalli, a leading marketing technologist at Symantec. (With thanks to Scott Vaughan at Integrate for introducing us!)

Given Symantec’s size, the scale and scope of this …

More unicorns! LinkedIn’s head of marketing technology

It’s fascinating to watch a new profession — marketing technologists — emerge from the digital star foundry. It’s a phenomenon that we should expect to see more frequently in The Second Machine Age. But while that’s thought-provoking at a theoretical level, it’s breathtaking to watch it actually happen with real people you know. It also reveals how much we rely on patterns from the past to determine what we believe about the future — unfortunately, …

Navigating the Class V Rapids of Marketing Technology

Earlier this year, I gave a presentation at the Marketing Operations Executive Summit hosted by the good folks at MarcomCentral that walked through my marketing technology landscape and talked about some of the dynamics with our industry moving towards platform ecosystems. MarcomCentral recently posted the video, which I’m embedding below (or watch it here if you’re reading this in email and the video doesn’t appear).

Secrets of an ace recruiter of technical marketing talent

Pretty much everybody acknowledges that talent acquisition in marketing today is a hard problem — especially for technical talent for marketing technology, marketing operations, and marketing analytics. But that’s kind of like complaining that winter is cold in Boston. It’s a true statement, yes, but complaining about it doesn’t make you any warmer. You need to get yourself a sweater, a jacket, and a wool hat. You need to make sure your heating system is …

The 4th Wave of Content Marketing (recorded webinar)

Last month I did a joint webinar with Jerry Rackley, Chief Analyst at Demand Metric, on the growing phenomenon of “marketing apps” as a new wave of content marketing. Demand Metric had just completed a research project with 185 marketers to compare the effects of passive vs. interactive content on their digital marketing programs — and the results were quite exciting. If you were interested in my post a couple of months ago about why …
