"My customers are not on LinkedIn!"

I had a fascinating conversation yesterday that brought me to an important realization.

While discussing our respective startups and the challenges of personal and non-personal marketing, someone mentioned how their clients aren't active on LinkedIn - so their commercial strategy is almost exclusively based on events.

Building a Territory Plan With SponsorMotion

In my last blog post, I shared a few screenshots of the search engine we built. Today, I will show how one can use SponsorMotion's database of events to inform the development of a territory plan.

AI: Jarvis or Li-Ion batteries?

It's fascinating to see the conversations around AI and how it's shaping our future.

However, my bet is that things will turn out quite differently.  Case in point: Amazon and Google have been cutting resources from their versions of Jarvis, Alexa and Google Home, as consumers mostly use these devices to ask about the weather or to play music. (My Google Home also plays white noise. Very helpful when I put the kids to bed).

SponsorMotion has been working with NASCAR to design a partnership program specific for healthcare and pharma companies.

Why would healthcare brands care about NASCAR?

NASCAR is a sport that has captured the attention of millions of Americans over the years. With over 80 million people tuning in to watch the races, NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in the United States.

But several misconceptions about the NASCAR audience prevent brands from fully tapping into this lucrative promotional channel.
