Marketing Technologists: Who They Are and Why They Matter [Infographic]

March 19, 2016

The digital marketing landscape is constantly evolving. New trends create new opportunities, and new technologies are developed to help support initiatives.

But managing that process of identifying a need, finding the right solution, and integrating the technology into your workflow can be difficult.

Enter the marketing technologist.
