Good morning, have you looked at the Martech Landscape lately? 

Scott Brinker is updating the Marketing Technology Landscape supergraphic and needs your help. This year, Brinker has decided to crowdsource information for the 2020 release. If you haven’t looked at the landscape since last year, please take a moment to review the graphic and let Scott know what solutions need to be added or list the companies that need to be removed (we’ve created separate forms for each task).  

This will be the ninth year for the now famous graphic — a project Brinker first started in 2011 when he put together a kaleidoscope of about 150 martech company logos. “I had no idea the beast that project was going to become. It didn’t just double, or triple, or even quadruple in size.

It grew more than 4,500%, within only eight years,” says Brinker.

Think differently about customer feedback data in 2020

“When you think of the customer feedback ecosystem, or the customer feedback economy, whatever you want to call it, there’s many, many places where information about your business is being left,” explains Adam Dorfman of Reputation. “And those could be on review sites. They could be on the question and answer sort of sites like Google My Business Knowledge Panels, or Quora. It can be in forms. It can be messaging. It can be all sorts of different, all sorts of different places.”

“If you aren’t tracking all of those different places in the wild, where this information is being left either solicited or not solicited (more often than not, not solicited), you’re missing a huge opportunity in being able to understand what customers really think about your business and how to improve your business operationally, to make a better business and to improve the customer experience.”
