Marti Konstant on Building Your Career Using Agile
Most Agile Marketers find their way to Agile due to the influence of a technical person in their life. A spouse, a friend, or a former career. However, for Marti Konstant, Founder of Konstant Change, was attracted to the approach due to the Project Management aspects of the approach.
Marti states, "I think Project Management sounds kind of boring when you think, 'Oh, I am going to be a Project Manager when I grow up. But if you think, 'I am a Marketing Project Manager and I get to help complete campaigns,' it brings a whole new level of interest and excitement to it."
Agile is finding a new home in nearly every business unit in the organization, but what about using it to help you build your career? In this show, Marti Konstant describes her approach to coaching individuals into using Agile methodologies to their careers.

Melanie Deziel Shares Her Amazing Insight on Branded Content and Native Advertising
The Content Marketing Spectrum can be difficult to understand. You have Content Marketing on one side, brands creating content on a consistent basis to reach and audience. But, as you start to move down the spectrum, new approaches bring to light new ways to reach your audience.
In this episode of the Enterprise Marketer Podcast, we talk to Melanie Deziel about two of these topics on the Content Marketing Spectrum, Branded Content and Native Advertising.
Melanie, who in my mind is the most reliable source when it comes to information on Native Advertising and Branded Content, began her career as a journalism student with an emphasis on investigative journalism. As a budding storyteller, she quickly found the market did not have a lot of opportunity for a journalist. Not letting this stop her, she made her way to the Huffington Post, where she got her start in Branded Content and Native Advertising.
After HuffPo, Melanie landed herself at the New York Times, where she worked with the team that is now known as TBrand Studio. There, she helped lay the foundation for other traditional print media companies to join the ranks of the Times by starting to produce content for brands that is distributed on their channels.
One of the pieces she worked on was the Orange is the New Black piece that showed how the prison system in LA County operated and how women in prison were treated compared to men. This campaign was a masterpiece in the making, as the team put together infographics, 1500 words of newsroom-quality content, and three mini-documentaries. Little did the team know, but they were creating one of the most referenceable pieces of Branded Content and would kick off a new way of looking at brands and media companies working together in the digital age.
Now, publishers like the New York Times and the Boston Globe can augment their revenue channels beyond subscriptions and traditional advertising, with this intelligent approach of leveraging talent and audience to help brands tell stories.
Throughout this show, we dive into the numerous topics surrounding Branded Content and Native Advertising, and Melanie gives us a proper definition and examples of what the terms mean and how they are executed.

Jayme Thomason and Jeff Julian Discuss Marketing, Data, and Testing
The use of technology continues to become the norm for marketing teams as we move deeper into the digital age. With great technology hopefully comes great data, but most of us see that data as the minefield of false positives and confusing due to the disconnection between our platforms.
In this show, Jayme Thomason and Jeff Julian discuss what is exciting about technology today and how marketers can use data to create better testing scenarios to analyze the what the data is showing and how your audience is responding to your marketing.
One of our favorite quotes from Jayme is when she describes herself as “not into science, but an arts-type person.” Most marketers have degrees with an arts focus, have embraced the creative side of the craft for years, and can’t remember the last time they used the more complicated statistical formulas they were taught in high school or college. But this is not a stance we can hold anymore. No matter what the size of our team, we have access to data that can allow us to make strategic decisions about what content is working and what we should do next.
