We’ve been working together with our sister site, ClickZ, to honor the best and brightest marketing technology companies today (which includes some SEO-related tools).
These Marketing Technology Awards are voted on 50/50 by the community and by a panel of judges. The ceremony will be hosted by Scott Brinker, and will take place on the night of March 21 in Tribeca, New York.
We’ve been raising quite a bit more hubbub about it on ClickZ, which more directly covers all marketing technology.
But since our SEW name is on there too, we wanted to make sure everyone here was in the loop as well. (You’ve probably seen it in the newsletters!)
How do the Marketing Technology Awards work?
Categories span across various types of marketing technology, including CDPs, ABMs, call analytics, conversational bots, and a dozen more.
And of course, a handful of more SEO type things such as search tools, location-based marketing, mobile marketing, etc.
Categories also include “Use of Technologies” (best campaigns, best tech stack), as well as “People” (martech CEO and CMO).
The awards were free to enter, and anyone who has used any of the platforms (excluding employees) could vote on them, rating the tools on things like ease of use, integration, innovation, value for money, customer service, etc.
Finalists were determined based 50% by community votes, and 50% by these judges.
