12 Hot Topics for Microsoft Dynamics Marketers in 2017

What are the hottest topics with Microsoft Dynamics marketers this year?

At the start of each year my marketing group makes a list of the topics we are the most interested in learning more about. Then we vote and assign one topic to discuss in our monthly call.

Hearing the experiences, opinions and questions of other VAR and ISV marketers that are with you “in the trenches” has proved to be enormously valuable. This is what we will be discussing in 2017.

 Hot Topics for 2017

1.       CRM and PowerBI dashboards for marketing.

2.       How to market a new product line.

3.       Interactive content tools.
