Why Marketing with Your Gut is Out and Marketing with Data is In – Ellie Mirman
The podcast version of this show from the live broadcast will be available by the EOB on Tuesday, Nov 26th.
What started as an interview with Ellie Mirman, CMO of Crayon, named one of the 20 Women to Watch by the Sales Lead Management Association, which centered on women in leadership, this morphed into an interesting discussion about how competitive intelligence creates a competitive advantage for its users.
SLMA Host Erika Goldwater gets Ellie to talk about how to grow as a leader, her own experiences and the advice she gives about how women can pave their way to success. Just as interesting is her background in marketing, especially as a CMO at Crayon a competitive intelligence company. She discusses how marketers have to shift from “marketing by your gut” to marketing with data; how data is an equalizer and why data is the new universal language.

Prior to Crayon, she was VP Marketing at Toast, where she built and led the marketing function across demand gen, content marketing, product marketing, branding, and customer advocacy. Previously, Ellie held multiple marketing leadership positions at HubSpot during its growth from 100 customers to IPO.
