Panel Discussion Webinar: Challenging Marketing Technology Failures To Unlock Revenue Growth

Incloud Business Solutions is organizing a Complimentary Discussion Panel in partnership with IT World Canada and Salesforce broadcasted live on November 30th at noon.

Panelists will discuss issues such as:

  • Marketing technology underutilization
  • How to avoid failures
  • How to build a blueprint for revenue growth

Martech is a $122 billion industry that’s growing by 22% year over year, and 70% of CMOs are increasing their investments in it (Harvard Business). However, 40% of marketers are not using their marketing potential to the maximum capacity (Gartner).

TOPICS BY DISCUSSION

Not enough
technology

Why your CRM is no longer generating growth. Why your sales reps' performance is reaching a cap that they can't extend.

Wrong
technology

I've been implementing the wrong system. I don't have the right technology. They sold me a Ferrari, but I need a Subaru.

Abandoned
with technology

I can't use this technology. I can't drive a formula one racing car.

Broken path in
the customer journey

Solving misalignment between marketing, sales, IT and customer service.

Building a
blueprint for growth

A pragmatic approach to enable sustainable revenue growth.
