Salesforce’s State of Marketing report highlights mobile, changing priorities

Salesforce’s recently released State of Marketing report found that mobile applications would be the most important technology investment in 2015. 

Nearly 57% of respondents said that mobile applications were absolutely critical or very important, with 54% saying the same about marketing analytics and customer relationship management tools. Interestingly, however, social listening and social publishing tools were among the least important, with only 40% saying they were absolutely critical or very important.

The survey polled over 5,000 full-time marketers online, with 59% of the respondents living in the United States.
