Inbound 2014
This past September, I attended the “Inbound 2014” conference in Boston with approximately 10,000 marketing and communications professionals. My creativity was charged and my thoughts were confirmed about the importance of relationship building in marketing. The presentations, ideas and case studies as well as the leadership and communication challenges that were shared, fueled my belief that the use of technology, combined with thoughtful communication is vital for businesses today.

New tools and applications were presented and we learned ways to create and deliver more relevant campaigns that attract and engage more interested and qualified audiences. At the same time, demonstrations of these sophisticated tools showed us how we can measure, evaluate and report on the performance of marketing programs. When we use these tools, we learn from the data collected and we can improve continuously, maximize marketing investments and create more value for clients and their customers. We saw examples from many successful businesses that used measurement tools and data analysis to understand more about their target audiences. With that level of understanding, these businesses were able to use marketing automation to respond and continuously publish more of the information that their customers were seeking. While providing more relevant and helpful content, these businesses attracted and engaged more informed and qualified business leads.

Today, I am working with a team of representatives from several area agencies to bring some of this inspiration to our home town as we host Atlanta’s first Inbound Marketing Day on March 5, 2015 during the global Inbound Marketing Week. This is a great opportunity for Atlanta area marketers, their friends and colleagues to boost awareness and skills - all in one day - without leaving town.
