Marketing is currently undergoing some of its most significant transformations ever. Although marketers have used devices and information for years, marketing itself has not historically been a very tech-focused field. Today, however, it is gradually becoming one of the most technologically intensive operations in the world. That, in turn, drives marketers to adopt technical backgrounds similar to engineers. Marketers who operate like engineers have discovered ways to create incentivized demand, utilizing their skills to inspire more desire among customers.
With these recent advancements, marketers can learn from engineers, especially in fields that develop technology they can use. Collaboration between marketers and engineers is mutually beneficial. To develop things, marketers require engineers’ technical knowledge and practical problem-solving talents. Likewise, the engineers need those marketers’ experience and strategies to develop, understand, and exploit market demand. Here are a few lessons marketers can learn from engineers to help them transform the business world.
