For years now, technology giants like Google, Apple, Facebook and others have put into place the integrations, features, and practices to help marketers take advantage of the technological leaps that define the direction of digital marketing today: big data, savvy automation, omni-channel marketing, predictive intelligence and optimization.
Marketers are less and less able to get into the nitty gritty of each ad, email, or campaign to manually setup and continually optimize. It’s just no longer feasible for humans to do this at scale and with any modicum of success compared to those who leverage advanced technology. And that’s exactly why most of the marketing technology today is built around scale and automation; it’s far more efficient and more than that, the technology is more flexible and accurate than the humans.
