Why Marketing Operations is the Hottest Rising Profession and how You can Capitalize on it
by Sarah O'Neill, on 31 March, 2021
MOPs. We're not talking about the thing you clean floors with. Apologies if the algorithm has sent you our way, but try B&Q. I got mine there and it's great.
But these MOPs are different, far more useful.
But make no mistake, Marketing Operations Professionals, or MOPs, go way beyond just the tech. A strategic role, MOPs have the opportunity to be a real cash cow, from getting involved with marketing analytics, revenue generation, decision-making, and beyond. A triple+ threat. But the definition is broadly vague, and vaguely broad, and this is on purpose - a marketing operations professional's job is varied, and can be moulded to fit a company.
From end-to-end, MOPs are involved. Throughout marketing process and operations, they keep every part of the production together, ensuring tech is integrated and deployed, funnels are optimised, and goals are achieved. And they set the tone for what happens even after these goals are achieved. Value-creation is the name of the game!
MOPs are ultimately there to connect the dots. Ensuring coordination, improving process, and integrating tech combine to make MOPs the glue that binds strategy and execution together.
As marketing itself becomes more complex, the role MOPs play will too. So, we've got a number of speakers discussing all parts of the profession, at this years #MarTechFest Dial Up - a one stop shop for all things MOPs!
In ‘MOPs and simple tech hacks that can make your campaigns magical’, Brooke Bartos goes behind the scenes. You’ll find out all about topics like:
