MarTech - what is it really? And how does it differ from CRM, KMS & Co.? We have already answered this in Part 1 of our series titled "The next generation of CRM – may the MarTech be with you". In this article we ask the question: Which setup do I need to actually make my MarTech stack operational?
As a consultancy, we are asked this very often. Admittedly, selecting marketing technologies can make marketers quickly feel like a kid in a confectionery store: You'd love to have a little bit of everything! However, both situations are also similar in terms of outcome: An excessive appetite usually ends in a stomach ache. At the end of the day, the objective shouldn't be to obtain as many features as possible within the allocated budget, or obtain the most recent, "cool" tool, but to achieve as much added value as possible - isn't that so? But how do I "assemble" the MarTech stack which is optimal for me?
