  • 2013 Budget Trends• Zero-based budgeting has become sub-zero based budgeting• (If the business is large enough) Other people’s budgets – marketing automation in IT, Salesforce.com in the sales budget, signage or environmental graphics as a corporate expense.• Use extended family, interns and entry level staff for Social Media to keep budgets low.
  • Uses of Technology in Marketing• Rise of Marketing Automation usage like Pardot and Marketo. Measure all the time! Pardot is now month-to-month.• Marketing Automation enables you to build landing pages that integrate your online marketing with Web (without you having a Webmaster).• Integrate Marketing campaigns with high value content that captures information, encourage engagement and continue a dialogue.• HootSuite and other apps help you distribute from one site.• Net Promoter Score tools such as Listen360 enable you to incorporate customer surveys AND push Promoter feedback directly to Social media (without you having a Social Media person).©2012-2013 Quantum Leap Marketing Survey
  • Mistakes To Avoid in 2013• Unlimited online Advertising. Banner Advertising visibility is NOT the same as print Advertising.• Stop manually connecting the dots. Use marketing and sales automation now that the price point & complexity are accessible.• There are other parts of the marketing mix. Social Media alone, and email marketing alone will NOT get you the number of impressions, amount of engagement and actual credibility you need to CLOSE.©2012-2013 Quantum Leap Marketing Survey
