Marketing Technologists, Data Analysts, Campaign Managers – The new roles in CRM, Marketing and Sales



CRM – new positions, new job profiles, new training.
I’m a Scott Brinker fan. I don’t need to stress that for long. I am also currently writing my manifesto, which he initiated in 2017.

Today, in a video interview with his publisher MarTech Today, he brings a few important points to light: CRM needs new positions, new job profiles, new training and I think also new organizational structures.

We will report and comment on a lot more in the coming weeks. The series started with my interview with Renate Hanke from hbkpartners in Hamburg. We are both members of the Digital Excellence Group, a network of specialists that advises every company on the digitization of the transformation of off- to online business models. We also help, and this is Renate’s top job, to find the right people.

But that’s not easy.

New requirements arise, e.g. due to MarTech or CRMTech. The requirement profiles are changing due to new possibilities of the software, but also due to a changed cooperation. We talked through the profile of the data analyst live, here is the exciting video.

So that not everyone has to watch the whole video, the jump marks are listed below.

“In this inaugural session of MarTech Live, MarTech Today Editorial Director Kim Davis speaks with Scott Brinker, who is perhaps the most recognized marketing technologist in the world. They look at how the archetypes for marketing technologists have grown as martech becomes even more woven into the fabric of modern marketing.
