Meet Jim Panagas and Jim Lundy Appearing on CMS-Connected
On Friday, February 26th we'll pull back the curtains again on another episode of The CMS-Connected Show and welcome the Director of PR & Analyst Relations at Kentico Software, Jim Panagas and the Founder, CEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research Inc., Jim Lundy.
This month we will be discussing how vendors need to sell their content management system (CMS) technology successfully to get noticed in today's bloated marketplace. Since new mystifying buzzwords are continually popping up like Digital Transformation, The Customer Journey, and Omni-Channel Marketing, it is getting harder than ever to cut through the noise and become predominant among hundreds of solutions.
Jim Panagas and Jim Lundy will tell us how to stand out in the marketplace, outpace competitors, and exceed expectations by drawing on their 20+ years of marketing strategy experience.
