Moz Whiteboard Friday: Agile Marketing

A presentation at Moz Whiteboard Friday in in Seattle, WA, USA by Jonathon Colman

Howdy, SEOmoz fans! In today’s video, we’ll explore the nifty, nefarious world on Agile Marketing, which I talked about at MozCon a few weeks ago. We’ll take a look at four key principles of Agile Marketing and talk about how you can use them to hack your organization to deliver more value to your customers more often by breaking down barriers and removing impediments to your progress.

The strengths of Agile are that it focuses on bringing customers into our marketing and development efforts; it focuses on interaction with your colleagues by building cross-functional teams; it pushes us to always stay in motion by prioritizing delivery to our users and customers above all other concerns; and it follows a strong, iterative “Build-Measure-Learn” cycle, just like Eric Ries talks about in The Lean Startup.

You know how fast things change in the world of SEO and inbound marketing - Google published 52 changes to their algorithm last April and another 39 changes in May. Agile methodologies can help you respond and react to those changes so that you can stay on top of new opportunities.
