Data is the lifeblood of digital organizations — critical to understanding consumers so you can improve service, develop better products and, ultimately, increase revenues by selling more.“Many organizations are working with their marketing agencies and vendors to figure out where they can gather data to get that understanding,” according to Ali Hanyaloglu, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Criteo, speaking during an eMarketer webinar on trends in marketing technology.This is why, within marketing, larger and ongoing investments into an institution’s martech stack have become increasingly important.Together with Hanyaloglu, Nicole Perrin, Senior Analyst at eMarketer, addressed six martech issues centered on data, AI and automation that will loom large in 2019. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio BUCKSPORT — With minutes remaining in what had been a less-than-stellar third quarter by his team, Joel Sankey knew where the ball was going.The Bucksport football team led Stearns/Lee Academy 28-14 with time winding down, and the Golden Bucks’ longtime head coach was ready to put the game away. Matt Vincent, who already had three touchdowns on the night, was about to help the team do just that.“We’re riding 23,” Sankey told his offense as it took the field. Bucksport’s offense needed to pick up steam, and Vincent, wearing the No. 23 jersey, was their man.Play after play, quarterback Chase Carmichael gave Vincent the ball. Vincent tore through the Stearns/Lee Academy defense before topping the drive off with a 17-yard touchdown run. It was the defining moment of an unforgettable game for the senior running back.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“I’ve never had a game like this,” Vincent said. “I felt really great out there the whole night, and the whole field looked wide open to me.”Vincent finished with a career-high 204 rushing yards and five touchdowns in Bucksport’s 49-14 win Friday. It was the second win in a row for the Golden Bucks.Vincent scored his first touchdown of the night with 9 minutes, 20 seconds remaining in the first quarter, and Keigan Riccard added another on an interception return three minutes later to put Bucksport (3-3) up 14-0.Stearns/Lee Academy (1-5) added a touchdown and 2-point conversion to make the score 14-8 with 2:54 left in the quarter but threw an interception on the first play of the second quarter after a Bucksport punt. Vincent would score on the ensuing drive and add another touchdown with 31 seconds left in the half.The second half started slowly for Bucksport, but that changed toward the end of the third quarter when the Golden Bucks recovered a fumble moments after Vincent’s fourth score. The team added two touchdowns in the fourth quarter on a Chase Carmichael touchdown pass to Brody Boynton and another Vincent touchdown run.“Matt is just crazy at running, and it’s not surprising that he was able to have a game like this,” sophomore Tyson Gray said. “He’s the type of guy who works his heart out and loves every second while he’s doing it, and he deserves it.”The win comes one week after Bucksport played its best game of the season in a 41-27 win over Mount View. After losing three games in a row against Maine Central Institute, Dexter and Orono, that victory over the Mustangs marked the turning point in the Golden Bucks’ season.“I played well, but we were also much better as a whole team tonight and last week than we were before,” Vincent said. “We thought we were together at the beginning, but we really weren’t. The past two weeks, practices have felt different. The atmosphere around the team has been different, too.”It didn’t really matter how Stearns/Lee Academy tried to stop Vincent. Whether they stacked the box or assigned safeties to the run game, the senior ran through and around the Minutemen defense to keep Bucksport’s offense rolling.After each touchdown, Vincent took a knee and pointed up at the sky. He did so in honor of his mother, who passed away two years ago.“I play every game for her,” Vincent said. “She’s everything to me.”After the game, Sankey gave Vincent a shout-out for his dominant performance. As teammates chanted his name in the huddle, their coach wanted him to look out for the boys who had made his performance possible.“Take your offensive linemen out for a nice dinner,” Sankey said.For one night, at least, that dinner would have to wait.“I’ll go ahead and celebrate tomorrow,” Vincent said. “Right now, I’m going to go home and sleep for a long time.”Bucksport’s next game will be at home against the Houlton Shiretowners (2-4) at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14.
