There are a lot of correlations between hiking a mountain trail and the challenges that marketing automation professionals face in their day-to-day jobs. That’s what marketing expert Stacy Levy discovered when she and a colleague went hiking while at a conference in Arizona.
She wrote an article, “Climbing the marketing automation mountain,” about her experience. That article is now available on ZoomInsights. The article applies hiking lessons to marketing. For example:
- Get an early start.
- Be observant and trust your gut.
- Pace yourself. Don’t mistake plateaus for the end of the trail.
- Don’t be afraid of getting your hands dirty.
- Ask for help when you need it.
