"You've Been Duped: How the Paradox of Choice is Making Marketing Suck"
We’ve been trained to believe that the more tools we have, the easier our job gets. The more complex the company, the more complex your systems for managing it. But 20 tools later, and your marketing -- and your attention -- are all over the place. Eventually, the tools end up ruling you. This session will empower you to take back control and reassess your marketing stack to ensure it's working for you, so you can focus on the parts of marketing that you love vs. the tedious, mundane tasks.
