With marketing technology platforms exploding, agencies and marketers find the sea of options dizzying. Prior to the release of last year's report, there had never been one resource to evaluate a large volume of tools across a number of different agency new business disciplines.
This year's report focused on the following categories, asking over 300 marketing agency executives what they're using, what's working, and what is the most over-rated:
- Social Media Tools
- Social Media Monitoring Tools
- CRM/Contact Management
- Software Research Services
- Prospect Contact/List Building Software
- SEO Tools
- Email Marketing Services
- Marketing Automation/Inbound Marketing Platforms
- Project Management/Collaboration Tools
According to Mark Sneider, Owner/President of RSW/US, "As the nation's leading outsourced agency business development group, we try and stay a few steps ahead of the best-in-class tools. Given the challenges agencies face, we felt it would be extremely beneficial to survey agencies across the U.S. to determine what they find most effective (and most over-rated)."
RSW/US is a full service, outsourced agency lead generation and new business development firm that helps marketing service companies (exclusively) find and win new business.
