The Major Flaw in Today’s Marketing Automation Solutions | G2 Crowd

The Major Flaw in Today’s Marketing Automation Solutions | G2 Crowd | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

"However, these are the questions I can’t answer with today’s tools:

  • Why did this person buy?
  • Who did they compare us to when it came to us vs. looking at competitors?
  • What features are important?
  • How will they define success with our product?

With all of those things, I can look at all the data available today and still have no idea.

The way that it’s built today, that type of stuff only gets there if a rep enters it into a field. “Here’s why this person decided to buy.” And in that case it’d be totally anecdotal, assuming they even bothered to do it.

AI email app Astro now works with Alexa and Slack - VentureBeat

AI email app Astro now works with Alexa and Slack - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Astro is bringing its bot for email to Slack and Alexa with a pair of new integrations announced today. Astrobot will allow users of those platforms to receive and manage messages from a set of connected accounts.

By invoking Astrobot, customers will be able to ask their home Echo speakers to help with email triage while they’re cooking and send emails without leaving Slack during the day. The Slack integration also allows users to view messages from Slack inside Astro’s email apps for Mac, iOS, and Android, alongside their more traditional messages.
CYDigital's insight:

Why important? Watch for all communications to be centralized within marketing automation solutions.

Should You Get Rid of Your Website's Lead Forms? - ConversionXL

Should You Get Rid of Your Website's Lead Forms? - ConversionXL | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
With the rise of messaging, the traditional approach of forcing people to fill out forms and following up via phone or email is losing favor.

In order to optimize for long-term growth, marketing and sales teams need to adapt to changing customer communication preferences.

The future of lead generation might not be entirely form-less, but it seems likely that messaging will play a more and more significant role. And thanks to bots, using messaging for lead capture campaigns is not only possible, but scalable.
CYDigital's insight:

Why important?: It's probably time to consider augmenting forms with FB Messenger, Slack or bots. At the very least...TEST!

Teams, Microsoft’s Slack rival, opens to all Office 365 users - TechCrunch

Teams, Microsoft’s Slack rival, opens to all Office 365 users - TechCrunch | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
After unveiling a limited preview of Teams in November last year, Microsoft is now rolling out its collaboration and communication platform, positioned as a rival to Slack, more widely: Teams is now available, and free, for all 85 million monthly active users of Office 365, Microsoft’s suite of cloud services and apps as a web app and native apps for Windows, iOS and Android.

Along with it, the company is announcing some 150 integrations with third-party services like Asana, Zendesk and Hootsuite, alongside the ability to chat (with other humans or with bots), security services, customization options and more.
CYDigital's insight:

Well....I'm switching over because of the Office 365 integration.

How To Build A Lead Follow Up Machine On Slack - Troops

We spend a lot of time in Slack. For our team, it’s the easiest place to be notified of something that requires immediate attention. So ideally, we wanted our process to be facilitated through Slack.

We then spent some time drawing out different workflows with various tools that required zero engineering resources and ended up with a process facilitated through Slack, using Clearbit, Zapier, & Troops.
CYDigital's insight:

This is a perfect example of Growth Hacking, where bits and pieces are collected into a process that delivers value and results. Brilliant stuff.

Slack introduces threaded replies - VentureBeat

Slack introduces threaded replies - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Slack has introduced a feature many users, particularly those in the media, will be ecstatic about: threaded replies. With this capability, the productivity app becomes more in line with Convo, Microsoft Teams, Facebook, and other products targeting the Future of Work space. But unlike many of these traditional apps, Slack has opted to shift these threads to the sidebar pane, removing the chatter away from the main conversation.

Officially called Slack Threads, the feature has begun rolling out today and will be available for all across the web, mobile, and desktop apps regardless of pricing tier.

Slack launches one-to-one and group video calling - VentureBeat

Slack launches one-to-one and group video calling - VentureBeat | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Slack has launched a new way for you to communicate with colleagues, with the addition of video calling. Now you can not only message team members, but also call and now video conference, either one-to-one or group video calling. But there’s more to just seeing someone’s face — you can also include emojis within your chat, such as a hand raise if you want to ask a question, a thumbs up to express your approval, or anything else.

Video calling is rolling out over the next few days, but won’t be available for all platforms — you’ll receive all the features with Slack’s Mac and Windows desktop apps and also on Google Chrome, but if you’re on mobile, you can join video calls but can only share and receive audio.

Marketers snub Slack for Microsoft, Facebook chat tools - MarketingDive

Marketers snub Slack for Microsoft, Facebook chat tools - MarketingDive | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
  • Reporting by Digiday found that, although brands and agencies never took to enterprise chat app Slack, they are now drawn to Slack competitors like Microsoft Teams and Facebook Workplace, which offer solutions technology that better fits their needs. Teams was announced just a few weeks ago, and Workplace launched in October. 
  • Other reasons for the gravitation away from Slack might include the lower cost of Workplace in particular, and the fact that Slack is a standalone app, while the competition offers a robust suite of features that go beyond chat.
  • Microsoft Teams isn’t formally released yet, but is being tested by companies that use Office 365; Facebook Workplace has already been adopted by more than 1,000 companies, including TBWA Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, Starbucks and Heineken.

What's the Functionality That Slack Delivers? (via  Enterprise Irregulars)

What's the Functionality That Slack Delivers? (via  Enterprise Irregulars) | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Let’s look at what Slack actually provides a group of users. The functionality covers three areas:

  • A message threading alternative to email that is device independent. 
  • It has a more open communication approach – the conversations get organised within channels that are like the hashtags I’m used to on public social media platforms, and everything is searchable so that I can easily loop in the skills and people I need.
  • The third key area is Slack’s focus on helping me with menial tasks. They have a growing directory with over 750 apps, chatbots and algorithms that I can deploy to help make my collaboration life that little bit easier. Slack are riding the growing wave of Bots, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation – a mega trend that is changing office work just as much as automation has on the shop floor.

New Microsoft Teams + Office 365 = Real Communication (via VentureBeat)

New Microsoft Teams + Office 365 = Real Communication (via VentureBeat) | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
At its Office event in New York City today, Microsoft announced Microsoft Teams. Previously known as Skype Teams internally, this is the company’s answer to Slack.

The service — with Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, and web apps — is available as a preview in 181 countries and 18 languages. Microsoft is aiming for general availability in the first quarter of 2017, Office corporate vice president Kirk Koenigsbauer wrote in a blog post. Until then, customers of Office 365 Business Essentials, Business Premium, and Enterprise E1, E3, and E5 tiers can turn on the preview (IT admins can go to the Office 365 admin center, click Settings, Services & Add Ins, and then Microsoft Teams). There are no plans for a free or consumer version.

Microsoft Teams is a web-based chat service aimed at businesses and schools that have multiple teams working on various projects at once. It features channels/groups, private messages, Skype video and audio calls, Office 365 integration (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files), OneDrive support, Power BI and Planner integrations, as well as emoji, Giphy images, memes, and so on. Threaded conversations, which Slack sorely lacks, are included in Microsoft Teams.
CYDigital's insight:

Looks like a Q1 release, so Slack has time to react. But this will be tough.

How to Use Slack for Social Media Marketing - Marketing Insider Group

How to Use Slack for Social Media Marketing - Marketing Insider Group | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Slack started as an integrated communication platform for teams. It evolved into a project management platform with a highly social bent, using hashtags and chat groups to give team leads the power to keep track of multiple dialogues, and reach the people that needed to be reached. Now, it is becoming a full blown social media network that is hitting it big with the modern day startup elite and technorati.

I love this tool. I would put it up there with Cyfe and Trello as one of the best management platforms to ever hit the web. If you are looking for a new way to integrate your team projects with social media marketing, it is a must have.

Too much to summarize, so please CT.

Salesforce Is Teaming Up With This Popular Chat Service - Fortune

Salesforce Is Teaming Up With This Popular Chat Service - Fortune | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
On Tuesday, Slack said that its users will now be able to connect the two tools, reducing how much they would need to flip back and forth between them. Users can search their Salesforce data via Slack, create Slack conversation channels associated with specific items in Salesforce, and connect Slack to two other Salesforce products: SalesforceIQ and Quip, the Google Docs competitor the software giant recently acquired.

Perhaps a bit awkward is the fact that Salesforce offers its own workplace chat service, named Chatter. While companies often prefer to avoid promoting a competing product, Salesforce may see more value in working with Slack and making it easier for their mutual customers to work with both, than to attempt to convince them to use Chatter. The integration could also lead some Slack customers to sign up for Salesforce now that they can use it right from the Slack app.
