Marketing Innovation: Attribute it to the Web

‘Marketing’ and ‘Innovation’: two words that have traditionally been cloaked in vagueness, if not uncertainty. Why? Because they get abused by association and diluted in practice. Inconsistent results, substance, and meaning tend to have that effect. But when they click … [wo]man-o-[wo]man, that’s the stuff of business legend. And when the combined term ‘Marketing Innovation’ is firing on all cylinders, well, that’s something to write home about (or on the homepage at any rate). It would appear this is such a time, for are ABM and predictive marketing ever hitting their stride!

Startups should be investing time and resources building security and resilience from the ground up rather than attempting to patch and retro-fit after the horse has bolted. What’s more, cyber risk is becoming an increasingly important due diligence issue for potential investors and acquirers, and if you are a B2B model, you may find that [...]
