An Ode to Marketing Automation – Part Deux

3 Years past and wiser are you

Time for an Ode to our Industry  . . . Part Deux

Opens and Clicks and an Engagement Score

Never has an email been measured more

Insert {Token.First.Name}

We made sure our emails had personalization game

 

Our Integrations were in- Sync

Our Nurture Tracks made us think

We learned to use words like API, and webhooks

The stuff you really can’t find in books

We learned the complexity of a link

And took our insights to the brink

Enrichment and Data Became a thing

New Brand leaders emerged like @Everstring

 

Subscription Centers become critical

Global Demand Centers became political

The Enterprise Space found its footing

Now to tackle the challenge of scaling

 

Our lofty Segmentation Goals

Sparked debates around Title, Function and Role

 

One year content was Royalty

One year RTP became the Key

One year Predictive kept us in the know

And now ABM is stealing the show

 

And among all this excitement unbounded

There was a Spark!

And Marvel Marketers was Founded

 

We Summited, User Grouped, and Made New Friends

And realized together the learning never ends

 

Just when we thought the markets had matured,

Marketo became Vista in an acquisition Venture

 

And while it is an unmatched  show

Enter Account Based Everthing – Engagio

Brace yourselves Industry!  Brace Yourself Marketing!

We are all going head first Spear Fishing.

 

And while I know it isn’t just me

That gets excited about all this stuff – techie

We all have our favorite moments

That make our careers a little richer

After all, how can I forget my famous, Marketo Summit 2016 Picture:
