Agile Marketing Can Help You Stay Sane Amid Increasing Customer Demands

My fellow marketers, we have a problem.

Actually, we have three fairly serious problems:

1. We spend barely a third of our work time (36%) on actually doing marketing.

2. Some 89% of us are logging into work on our own time.

Most of those stats are probably not news to you. Those stats may be just a reflection of your daily professional life. But do we just have to accept those conditions?

Are marketers doomed to flounder endlessly under a crushing amount of work? Is our email going to run our lives until we retire? Will we just never manage to get along with other teams?

Should we just give in to the fact that 64% of our time is spent on things that aren't marketing?
