#RunMarketing Contest Update: The End Is Near

August 10, 2016 Allocadia

The end is near! But don’t worry–that means it’s almost time for prizes.

Our #RunMarketing contest kicked off in the spring and since then we’ve been challenging marketers like you at marketing technology events and on social media to tell us “how YOU run marketing”.

“What I love most about this campaign is that it gave marketers the opportunity to get creative again. And everyone got into it! Marketing is supposed to be fun – that’s why we got into it in the first place. It was so great to see them laugh, to see them make it personal, to have them think of the metaphor that best describes them as marketers. What I loved was watching people walk away proud — and smiling, especially if they got brave and pushed the envelope a bit — they were able to creatively sum up what kind of marketer they are in less than 10 seconds.” – James Thomas, CMO of Allocadia

He’s right. This campaign WAS fun. Everyone DID get creative. I mean, look at some of these entries.
