    Marketing Automation Systems for state-of the-art lead management

    The term “marketing automation” is defined as the IT-supported execution of recurring marketing tasks with the aim of increasing the efficiency of marketing processes and the effectiveness of marketing decisions. Introduced consistently by prominent providers of Marketing Automation Systems (MAS), such as Salesforce.com, HubSpot, Adobe, its subsidiaries Marketo, Oracle, Microsoft and IBM in the past, the topic is coming more and more to the fore.

    What programmatic advertising can do - and what not

    For some time already, programmatic is seen as a savior of online marketing, which is why we decided to highlight the opportunities and limitations of programmatic display in an article.
