Joining a community is a great way to learn from others and grow your marketing ops career. We’ve gathered a list of five vendor-agnostic groups in the MOPs community. Take a look and join the ones that best suit your needs!
MO Pros: MO Pros is a community of nearly 2000 marketing ops professionals across the globe. They offer both a Slack community and an online forum for members to discuss everything from career advice to tech stack suggestions and more.
Pavilion: Pavilion is an invite-only revenue group for VP+ to help you navigate an often volatile landscape.
RevGenius: RevGenius is a group of over 12,000 revenue-generating sales and marketing professionals brought together to learn, share, support, and grow with each other.
Wizard of Ops: Wizard of Ops is a Slack community for operations professionals to gather, question, and share their expertise.
MOPsPros: MOPsPROs is a community of marketing operations professionals. They believe in the advancement of the marketing operations profession by providing a safe, supportive, inclusive environment that fosters trust, communal learning, and the personal development of all of its members.
Regardless of which suits you best, joining a community enables you to share best practices and get support from other like-minded ops professionals.
Outside of specific groups, a great way to build your community is to be proactive and reach out to people in your network! “Don’t tell yourself no before others can,” Andy Caron, VP of Consulting at Revenue Pulse, shared. Andy suggests putting yourself out there and reaching out to someone you admire or follow that you want to learn and grow from. Building these relationships could lead to mentorship or, at the very least, a good conversation and new connection!
The future is bright for marketing ops professionals.
Given the incredible level of communication skills, technical chops, cross-functional collaboration, and more required to be a MOPs superstar, we see marketing ops professionals as the future CMOs. They understand the business problems and have the data and know-how to solve them. And, we’re not alone in thinking the path is bright for marketing ops.
