Are You Trending?


tech 360 conferenceTech marketers must constantly be adapting to the latest technologies and trends. More and more, B2B marketers are made to face the reality that our marketing is not so different from B2C marketing. And the reason is because the people we are marketing to are the same – human beings. They use the latest technology at the office to manage their business, as well as becoming experts at home on their own time. Many of the sessions and keynotes at the Tech Marketing 360 Conference in Dana Point, California last week focused on how tech marketers can use the rapidly changing tech world to their advantage.

Much of staying top of mind these days is about staying at the top of your customers’ streams. These experts reviewed what is happening in this Digital Revolution and how to brave the elements and join in. It is also important to join important conversations and stay relevant to your consumers.

Business.com is joining the revolution! Here are some Tweetable takeaways from last week’s conference:
