10:30 – We’ve made a lot of investment in marketing the website and various campaigns to go gather more data, more customers and all their engagement that’s associated with it. How do we start mining this information to drive greater go-to market efficiencies? The Rev Ops is the individual that’s meant to wire these platforms together, and help deliver the analytics to make better decision-making.
16:50 – I think we do a great job of telling stories externally and messaging to the market. We drop the ball when we need to start telling stories internally, and it only behooves us to figure that out. Because, again, how many marketers are struggling with “Hey, what’s the ROI? What’s my contribution to revenue?” The more white papers that we could tie back to revenue, the more efficient we’ll be and the stronger our case will be to get more funding.
37:24 – I could see a future, to get futuristic, of we’re going to be engaging in more ephemeral ways with our data, that CRM and marketing are going to be these endpoint tools that are going to be feeding this brain, this data cloud, as what Salesforce is calling it. It’s from there that we get this kind of unified view of the customer from all the different sources and we’re applying AI at that level to extract revenue.
