The marketing industry is rapidly evolving as new data and software change the traditional underpinnings of this old industry and force marketing publications to adjust. Like many industries, marketing is heavily defined by technology. Industry insiders now simply refer to the whole marketing apparatus and the technology that drives it as martech. Marketing is an absolutely essential component of any business that hopes to be profitable and many business leaders depend on marketing publications to cover their industry, products, and events. 

Investing in a robust marketing strategy is crucial for any business, especially those involved in selling a product or service. With tech-heavy CRM and marketing platforms like Adobe Marketo and Salesforce mixing with exciting technologies like Open AI and ChatGBT, some experts believe that many traditional marketing jobs may become obsolete in the future.
