Overview

Marketers are often told to document their strategies, become more organized and deploy smart tools to achieve goals. While this seems fundamental, it’s not possible to have teams working together, balance creativity with structure, liaison marketing meetings, plan campaigns and have successful brainstorming sessions for every campaign. Let’s be real – creators want to create; writers want to write and designers want to design - not spend time to coordinate their work.

However, flash news: the top marketers are always organized!

The most organized marketers are 397 percent more likely to be successful, while goal-setting marketers are 376 percent more likely to be successful. Marketers with a documented strategy can expect 313 percent more successful campaigns, while marketers who proactively plan campaigns are equally likely to perform better.

Don’t worry, you can also be one of them! We bring you the wisdom to make your marketing easier and better. Join Emily in Paris and explore Campaign Management Software!

History Of Campaign Management Software


Marketing is as old as time itself. Here’s how Campaign Management Software evolved over time:
 
  • The 90s

    Archie, the first search engine, debuted in the early 1990s, announcing the birth of search. SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, quickly followed. The first clickable web-ad banners were introduced in 1994. The first identifiable social media site was launched in 1997, with 3.5 million users. In the 1990s, a slew of websites still in use was found, including Google and Yahoo’s web search, both of which debuted in 1998. Back in the day ‘campaigns’ referred to phone or postal services that spanned several weeks if not months.

  • The Millennial Generation

    Many new sites were launched in the 2000s, including LinkedIn’s beginnings in 2002, Myspace and WordPress in 2003, leading finally to Facebook in 2004. In the early 2000s, mobile text messaging marketing became increasingly popular making way for newer channels for marketers to get eyeballs.

  • The Mobile Era

    The latter half of the decade saw increased marketing and sales, with Amazon’s e-commerce sales surpassing $10 billion. Over the next few years, mobile app culture expanded with the introduction of Whatsapp, Instagram and Snapchat to the digital world. This meant there were dozens of channels to be managed during campaigns.


Back in the day, marketers cast their net as per reach and used channels such as radio, TV, OOH, posters, in-person sales, etc, to reach their target audience. They could rarely quantify their results the conversion could never be directly and proportionally linked to their marketing efforts. The post-digital allows us to map every step of the consumer journey and align our strategy to our goals. Here’s how!
