SmartBug Media's Jen Spencer to Speak at INBOUND 2017

September 13, 2017

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartBug Media, the highest-rated HubSpot agency and a leading intelligent inbound marketing agency with a focus on revenue growth, today announced that it will be a sponsor at INBOUND 2017 on Sept. 25-28 in Boston, and Jen Spencer, VP of Sales and Marketing, will be a breakout session speaker. Spencer's session will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 4:45-5:30 p.m. and is titled Wait, Are You Human? Delivering Authentic Experiences in the Age of Mass Automation.

Jen Spencer leads SmartBug's sales, marketing, and brand strategy and subscribes to the notion that "we're all in this together," and that excellent communication leads to great partnerships. Spencer has a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Arizona and is a board member and Marketing Chair for Girls in Tech Phoenix, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the engagement, education, and empowerment of girls and women who are passionate about technology.

Spencer's session strives to educate attendees how adopting inbound techniques and leveraging strategic partnerships can put the human element back into the modern-day sales process, and has the following focus: With the advent of innovative tools such as marketing automation, sales orchestration, and AI bots, today's sales and marketing professionals can now be everywhere and anyone. While these technologies allow us to better serve our buyers and customers, they're also susceptible to abuse, and this abuse has left buyers craving authentic interactions.

"What I've enjoyed about INBOUND over the years is the beautiful intersection of inspiration, strategy, and operational tactics that can immediately be applied to your business," says Spencer. "I'm personally passionate about keeping the human element in all human interactions, and as a tech junkie, I know it can be easy to lose sight of this. The goal of my session is to provide attendees with some practical tools they can start using to deliver those authentic experiences that buyers crave."

This is Spencer's third year speaking at INBOUND.

In addition to Spencer's educational breakout session, SmartBug Media will have key marketing strategists available at its booth. And during specific Ask-Me-Anything times throughout the event, SmartBug's experts will be discussing, through a conversational format, topics that include:
