Word to the Wise: Real-Time

Share this article:

The question about “real time” is whether it's actually real time, or just near real time.

While some marketers mean “in the exact moment” when they refer to real-time marketing, others mean “as close to the moment as makes sense or that we're capable of.”

To avoid miscommunication, it's best to include “near” if that's what you mean.
