Summertime should be beach-time, mountain-time, big- city time, amusement park-time, you-name-it-time. Trouble is, for even the most modern of marketers, getting away from the office doesn’t always mean getting away from your demand generation, nurturing, and lead management duties.
I remember once on vacation (at a previous job) having to duck into an Apple store in Munich, Germany to get online and edit and launch a campaign! I also have had to babysit web copy edits from a museum lobby with good Wifi, and even create from scratch an emergency funnel velocity campaign from a beachside coffee shop. Surely, you have your own nightmare stories.
While there will always be crazy marketing fires that pop up requiring immediate attention, there are tactics at the ready to help you hit the open road, without endangering hitting your numbers. From pre-designed and scheduled outbound campaigns and triggered engagements to sales-enabled nurture, content marketing, and display retargeting. These can all be designed, tested, and set on autopilot for the time you take off.
