CabinetM, the Boston-based start-up which launched last November, just announced SkillStacks, a new tool which will allow digital marketers to display their technological proficiency in the clearest way: by sharing their own marketing stack in their resumes, and on LinkedIn.
Marketers now have the ability to build a comprehensive view of the tech solutions that they are fluent in, annotated with the ways in which (and how well) they use it. The end result is a graphic representation of a marketer's tech skills, with stack solution icons that click through to CabinetM product profiles that make it simple for viewers to learn more about unfamiliar tools.
With increasingly martech instruments thrown into the combination seemingly each week, there’s a rising want for entrepreneurs – particularly when in search of new roles – to showcase their abilities. One firm that’s attempting to unravel this downside is startup CabinetM.
It has never been easier to quickly test new marketing technology products in the pursuit of revenue growth, customer lifetime value and reduced cost of customer acquisition, however, without oversight, messy, costly and painful things can happen within an organization.
CabinetM Co-Founder Sheryl Schultz, alongside other industry leaders, shares crucial content marketing forecasts for 2016.
The digital marketing job title is giving way to more specialized titles and functions such as email marketer, customer acquisition specialist, marketing data analyst and social media marketer. While specialization is a necessity and brings with it many benefits, specialization also creates a number of challenges for both organizations and marketers.
To help marketers deliver ROI in the form of revenue, reduced cost of acquisition, and/or customer lifetime value, the industry has created an abundance of tools that can be used to find, target, influence, and track customer activity and engagement.
At the 2016 MarTech Conference, Scott Brinker, head of the conference, unleashed the highly anticipated 2016 Marketing Technology Landscape Supergraphic. With 3,874 logos featured, there’s only one appropriate word to describe Brinker’s updated visualization of the martech space: overwhelming. In Brinker’s estimation, the number of vendors represented in the supergraphic is up 87 percent from last year.
