Marketing Strategy

Yesterday via Facebook and Twitter, we announced the beta launch of the next big thing: SmartBrief on ExecTech.

This daily news roundup relieves the No. 1* anxiety identified by executives: staying abreast of advances in technology. It’s the news and analysis business leaders need about emerging personal and enterprise technologies — and how they may affect your bottom line.  Here’s yesterday’s beta issue.

SmartBrief on ExecTech is how your CEO will know what’s coming so s/he can make smart IT decisions.

On our quest to bridge the gap between technologists and executives, we want to make sure we’re capturing the most important voices in the mix. In developing SmartBrief on Social Media, we’ve counted on you to help create a more complete product — and we hope to tap your valuable expertise and network for our newest publication.

Can you help by asking your CIO or IT Director what our editors should be tracking?
