Mobileman: The Mobile Elite Worker – Infographic

The workplace is quickly being infiltrated by a new breed of mobile superhero — elite workers who rely on and use mobile apps to increase productivity. These men and women have superpowers that soar past anything the Justice League could drum up. This super-connected workforce has the ability to channel the data and apps that smartphones provide, and have made businesses stronger than ever.

Unisys did a research project with Forrester Consulting, conducting surveys with more than 590 businesses around the globe. The researchers found that mobile devices are making workers more productive, making them 35% more likely to collaborate with colleagues than those who are phone-less.

The mobile elite also drive innovation within their companies, compelling their co-workers to accept change through the power of tech.

But every superhero has his kryptonite, and for these smartphone-toting men and women it seems risk-taking is their hubris. They are two times more likely to download unauthorized apps to get work done, putting their companies and fellow workers at risk for a security breach.

For more about how the mobile elite perform in the workforce, take a look at the infographic below.

The Secret To Great Marketing – Infographic

I recently wrote in my post The ROI of Marketing Automation that for most companies, the difference between “good ROI” and “amazing ROI” is in their ability to complement the out-of-the-box software with the right people, ideas, and best-practice processes.

Until recently, each company had to figure all this out on their own. And this prevented a lot of companies from adopting and being successful with marketing automation.

Until now.

You’re not alone

Today, thousands of companies have blazed the path to success. While this is useful in its own right, when combined with a marketing platform that enables sharing of best practices and pre-built programs, the result is a powerful network that simplifies the marketer’s world, surrounds them with other great marketers, and helps them get to the results they need faster.

We call this concept the Marketing Nation.

The Marketing Nation combines the ability to exchange best-practice programs with a robust community for sharing ideas, along with a growing army of consultants and experts, a broad ecosystem of verified partners, and thought leadership and knowledge from experts. In other words, it’s everything a company needs to go from “good” to “great” with their marketing automation investment.

Learn more about how the Marketing Nation does this by downloading our eBook, The Marketing Nation: How to Use the Power of the Network to Succeed.

Why a nation?

You may be wondering, why we do we call this the Marketing Nation? Well, the Wikipedia definition of Nation refers to a community of people who share a common language, culture, ethnicity, descent, or history.

In this definition, a nation has no physical borders. Instead, members of the Marketing Nation are marketers united around a common goal of shared success and empowerment.

Are you ready to join the Marketing Nation? Here are two great ways you can participate:
