Marketing + Technology

The duo you need for biz growth

Business Essentials

Marketing is essential to a thriving business. No matter how you feel about it, as a business owner, you have to keep a pulse on and dedicate time to developing and deploying your marketing strategy. And these days, technology is becoming a larger piece of that marketing puzzle. We’re no longer simply talking about using automation to speed up the process or create more targeted campaigns.

Technology is changing the marketing landscape in huge ways. From the ever-evolving social media platforms and now the metaverse to augmented reality and artificial intelligence, understanding what new technologies are available and how to utilize them in your marketing is important if you want to continue to grow your business.

This week we’re bringing you a look at the tech effect on marketing as well as some tried and true tactics that are still bringing in results.

What’s Fresh

The idea of hustling your way to success is embedded in the traditional path of the entrepreneur. But living and working in a constant state of hustle isn’t sustainable and often leads to burnout.
