Is your tech stack so thick that it’s actually impeding your productivity? Recently, Vyral Marketing CEO Frank Klesitz and I sat down to discuss what happens when a business starts believing that cutting-edge tech is a magic solution to lead-gen work in and of itself. Even though Frank pioneered the digital approach to database marketing, he and I agree that too much tech can be cumbersome—especially when you understand human behavior and our tendency to become grossly distracted by all the shiny buttons in front of us.
