It is harder than ever for today’s marketers to capture and retain customers. Buyers today are even more empowered with an increased access to information. And now, marketing teams must compete across a growing array of digital channels to get their audiences’ attention. Customers get bombarded, and it becomes much harder to know if you are reaching your customers — and if your messages are resonating.
All this means that the era of campaign-centric, start-stop marketing is over. Marketers can no longer wait until after a marketing campaign ends to determine if it is having an impact. Marketing must be data-driven, continuously improved with predictive outcomes. This webinar will examine how the best marketing organizations are breaking out of the campaign-centric marketing trap, achieving predictable outcomes, and outpacing their competition.
