Did you get more perspective as a CMO in 2016? Ready to face the challenges of digital marketing in 2017? This year we shared 20 CMO Perspective blogs highlighting some of the best content online for CMOs. That is over 100 pieces from industry greats such as Jay Baer, Jeanne Bliss, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barry Levine, and Shep Hyken, Spanning across a plethora of amazing publications such as Mycustomer, CMSWire, Adage, Customerbliss, Business2Community and so many more. We have chosen to share just three of the most shared or liked CMO Perspectives of 2016.
What was probably our last CMO Perspectives for 2016 was obviously the one that resonated the most with people, not surprising given that CMO Perspectives favorite Jay Baer had some very important things to say about Social Customer Service. We may have ended the year with a bang, but our February 16 edition didn't disappoint either, with brilliant industry experts on hand like Jeanne Bliss who helped us ponder whether the “CMO can be the CCO.” Finally, to round-off of our roundup of the year’s best CMO Perspectives we struck-out with a baseball pun filled piece by Drew Neisser on Adage.com with a spotlight on Dan Farrell, VP Marketing with the St. Louis Cardinals. Enjoy!
