Marketing exists in a state of constant change. New channels emerge overnight, audiences expect perfectly targeted messaging, there are never quite enough resources to go around, and marketing technology just keeps getting more complex. And yet marketers aren’t evolving to keep up with all this change. We use outdated methods to manage our work (if we have any work management system in place at all). We live with inefficiencies and stress, assuming that’s just the way that marketing is.
