SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- LeadMD, specialists in marketing automation and CRM consulting services, today announces it will partner with Kapost to provide marketers with a data-driven, results-based content marketing option. The collaboration will join the award-winning lead generation expertise of LeadMD with the leading content marketing technology and insight of Kapost. Now LeadMD customers will be able to view how individual content assets perform and use these insights to inform future decisions around content production, targeting and distribution.
"This platform is simply essential in creating a repeatable content marketing model," said Justin Gray, CEO of LeadMD. "Many marketers are still using simplistic tools like Google Docs and email to collaborate on content, and the result is bland copy, poor visibility across the organization and frustration among sales and marketing teams. The joint offering between LeadMD and Kapost couples software and services, which not only overcomes operational challenges, but also augments the creation process with engaging conversational content and analytical feedback. As a result, our clients experience much more success due to the effective creation of content that was strategically designed and deployed to particularly targeted prospects."
Kapost guides marketers through the content marketing planning stages including approvals and editorial calendars, managing distribution across numerous channels (blogs, video and social) and gathering analytical performance metrics. This powerful technology is enhanced by LeadMD's value proposition of seasoned marketing automation consultants who know what works and what doesn't to bring a new way of putting content creation in context.
As part of the partnership, LeadMD will provide the Kapost platform to all of its extended management level customers on professional plans or greater. LeadMD will also devote extensive resources toward client content marketing. In turn, Kapost will bridge the gap between LeadMD clients and their content needs by offering expertise on operational efficiency and the tie-in to systems like Marketo and Salesforce.com. Since content can be directly published from Kapost, LeadMD customers will be able to use data from the platform to improve their content programs.
"LeadMD is such a great resource for companies who are trying to move away from 'guess and blast' marketing to data-driven marketing that drives revenue," said Toby Murdock, co-founder and CEO of Kapost. "As marketers move toward creating buyer-centric content, Kapost provides an excellent platform for LeadMD to serve the needs of specific buyers at every stage of the cycle -- even if they're spread across teams, regions and disciplines. We connect the process, strategy and technology it takes to build a content factory."

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
