Tools, tools, tools…they are everywhere. The latest count of available marketing technology solutions in the market is 7040! (Source: Chief Marketing Technologist) Crazy, huh?
There seems to be a tool for every marketing task. But there is a problem with that. All of these siloed tasks create a disjointed customer experience.
Marketers at growing companies are super busy. They’re focused on individual tasks and individual touch points. They have a “get the job-at-hand done” mentality, and they use a number of different marketing tools.
Your customers create a perception of your brand through every touch point they have with you. Every action taken by the marketer affects the customer -- either positively or negatively.
Disconnected point solutions like stand-alone email marketing tools or siloed ads tools don’t give you a holistic view of the customer experience. You need the ability to easily see how your efforts impact the customers’ experience beyond just a single email, or one ad campaign.
Hubspot was the first company to integrate a number of disparate tools into a single marketing platform, enabling marketing teams to integrate disparate tasks into more cohesive campaigns. Hubspot is now extending lead nurturing tools to the sales function in their new CRM platform that enables you to manage your pipeline with total visibility.
