You’ll Learn:

  • How Jacqui transitioned from consumer packaged goods and lifestyle marketing to the start up space.
  • How Jacqui’s short time at SilverPop taught her the importance of understanding how business works and how customers think.
  • Why marketers need to take on more strategic activities as chat bots, A.I. and other #MarTech take over the tactical activities.
  • Why Jacqui feels humans have a threshold for noise and at some point they’ll become numb to #InfluencerMarketing.
  • Why using algorithmic technologies and A.I. to solve what is fundamentally a human problem is fraught with its dangers because algorithms are written by humans who have inherent biases.


3 Key Points:

  1. In marketing it’s not about the push, but about the customer and finding that happy medium between a customer’s wants and needs and a company’s value proposition.
  2. Marketers need to be strategic and contextualize #MarTech to produce insight from big data.
  3. Humans have a threshold for noise. At some point they’ll tune you out.
