How will the remainder of 2020 shape up and what long term changes can we expect? Does Marketing Automation have a role to play in this new normal? I think it does, I’ve outlined my thoughts below.
2020 has certainly taken us all in a direction that none of us could have imagined. I’ve been WFH (working from home) for almost four months at this point. I have my first work related face-to-face meeting this coming week at the office, there will be just four of us with two joining by ZOOM.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) recently issued an infringement notice for AU$1,003,800, the biggest fine the regulator has ever issued*.
