How technology cuts ‘hidden’ environmental impacts of campaigns

When marketers think of the sustainability of their brands, their minds probably turn first to their manufacturing operations, their product and packaging materials, and their wider supply chains – areas in which they may aspire to make a difference but often have limited influence. But marketing itself has its own significant environmental footprint, over which marketers and their agency partners have direct control.

Can Marketing and IT Collaborate in Martech?

The reality is some tasks will be IT, and some will be marketing when it comes to martech management. How should they work together?

  • Adopt scalable martech solutions that enable the creation of captivating experiences for both potential and existing customers.
  • Collaborate seamlessly and efficiently across teams.
