MarketScale visited Antigua last weekend with SiOnyx for the opening night of Antigua Sailing Week 2018 to showcase the SiOnyx Aurora night-vision action camera.
On Friday, April 20, SiOnyx launched Aurora, their new action camera, on Kickstarter. SiOnyx’s Aurora is the world’s first waterproof day and night camera and is the only high-definition, color action-camera with true day and night imaging.
Their Kickstarter campaign was a true success, surpassing their goal of $50K in less than four hours and reaching 200% of their goal in less than 48 hours. While they’re currently at over $180K with about 400 backers, they’re sure to excel farther past their goal with 29 days left of the campaign to go.
Sales Operations Should Equal Sales Optimization
Like many aspects of business in the 21st century, Sales Operations is changing. How? Well, it’s moving quickly from a reporting and administration function to much more—think of it as Sales Optimization. Longer buying cycles and global competition may be eating into your organization’s numbers. It’s time to address the increased cost of sales head on by taking a closer look at your Sales Operations team.
Manufacturing, although an industry with a long history, isn’t stuck in the past. Its operations have embraced artificial intelligence, robots and other technology, which has propelled accuracy and efficiency forward. Unfortunately, manufacturing lags behind in other areas like marketing. It hasn’t adopted modern marketing practices like content, inbound or social media marketing. Thus, it’s struggling to connect with millennials, who, according to a Forrester Report, are involved in B2B purchasing decisions 73 percent of the time. They are also, per the Pew Research Center, the largest living generation in the U.S., numbering over 75 million.
For manufacturers to retain and grow clients, they must start focusing on the millennial buyer.
