Are you taking your automation to the next level?
We talk about analytics, tracking, privacy and so much more.
Takeaways include all of the different platforms you can use to save time and save money.
Mobile apps need to be careful when they use automation. Forms need to be accessible.
Jaime Nacach graded the following platforms: 1-10, 10 being best.
Constant Contact 7-8
Zoho Campaigns 9-10
Hubspot ….not used, but would give it a 10.
Also, Agile CRM

Big companies may not embrace Automation as small firms can. They are not as agile.

Want to know more about personal data, especially when it’s yours?
People’s relationship with their personal information is changing. People are becoming aware that their personal information is employed by organizations (inc. commercial, non-commercial, government) to support background operations, to personalize services, to deliver conveniences and value. However, to date, outside simple opt-in mechanics, people have had little to no active role in the management of their personal information. For example, people have little to no insight or say in how their data is used for marketing, in predictive analytics modeling, credit scoring, real-identity detection & resolution, fraud management, and a host of other applications that have a material effect on nearly every aspect of their lives. We’re entering an age of awareness and awakening. The increase of public data breaches, the rise of recognized security flaws in hardware and software, and actual and perceived data misuses of personal data are opening people’s eyes to the need to protect their privacy and to take an active role in the management of their personal information. One day, market leaders envision, that the majority of people will awaken to the undeniable fact that their personal information has value, that it is their asset, and that they can have an active role in its management–its production, collection, refinement, use, exchange, and value. However, for many, having control over the sovereignty of their digital self may be out of reach of many, as privacy is the new luxury good.
In this session Mary Beth McCabe and Michael Becker have an online fireside chat on the future of privacy and the emergence of the individual digital sovereignty. We’ll discuss the triggers–changes in people’s behavior, the regulatory and technology landscape, and commercial reactions—that have triggered a tsunami that is washing over the world’s economies. Once the waters recede the landscape of business will forever be changed. It is time to prepare.

“What is Artificial Intelligence? And how is Artificial Intelligence different from Machine Learning?”
We will talk about this Monday, Jan 29 from 11am -12 Noon PST LIVE with Jamie. Here is the login. https://zoom.us/j/8584882867
Conversation starter here from Jamie’s blog….. “AI is the ability for a computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. AI is an umbrella term that would include a wide variety of things including self-driving cars, Google search, image recognition software, and a whole slew of stuff you already use or are at least thinking of using.
Machine Learning is a sub-category of AI. It gives computers the ability to automatically learn and improve by using algorithms. (An algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for solving a problem or reaching a goal. It’s sort of like a recipe that you keep adjusting and improving each time you use it.)
Artificial Intelligence is a broad category that covers computers and robots that do human tasks, and Machine Learning is a sub-category that focuses in on the use of algorithms that continue to improve the more they’re used.”
AI= Google Image Search, Paid Search, and Facebook Feed. Also, Netflix, Spotify and Pandora all give you AI.
Jamie’s got a list of 157 AI platforms and growing.

Response Expo 2016 was an amazing experience full of learning opportunities and insight on various concepts related to direct response. This year was my first year attending and afforded me the opportunity to be engaged by many thought leaders in the industry including seasoned marketing professionals in the finance, marketing and web development, and automotive industries. The event also included the latest and greatest in technology applications for social media management, analytics, and media. I most enjoyed the marketing mix and how many of the companies attending the event as sponsors and exhibitors interconnected in one way or another in support of direct response marketing.
Major corporations and organizations such as Hulu, Lending Tree, and Wix.com were among the heavy hitters – representing their brands as they shared their experience with attrition in both online and offline marketing practices. There were also several companies offering the latest in order and product fulfillment and call center services. Among these, informercial providers and copywriters were also present. This event gave me a broader perspective of direct response marketing and the chance to reflect on how technology has evolved over the years to allow marketers a greater platform to maximize their marketing budgets using advance tools and software that support analytics in a way that has never been done before.
The vibe of the event was welcoming, engaging, and full of educational opportunities that would benefit students and seasoned professionals in the marketing and communications industries. From this experience, I’ve gained additional industry knowledge and the opportunity to network with many amazing marketing professionals from all over the country. I currently work with local government and nonprofit organizations as well as small businesses. This event has given me several connections and opportunities that I know will lead to advancing my current employment and business in the marketing world.
