This webinar will highlight results from Econsultancy’s New Marketing Reality report in partnership with IBM.
The traditional funnel no longer works. It assumes audiences are linear and predictable in their behaviour. At the same time, it doesn’t take into account the fact that people will act the way they want to act, rather than sticking to a sequence designed by marketers.
Despite this being the perceived wisdom among practitioners, organisations still spend billions creating awareness to acquire new customers. What they should be doing is spending this on keeping existing customers happy by providing a superior customer experience.
This webinar will seek to explore why organisations are failing to take into account this new marketing reality. In doing so, it will underline the challenges marketers face when trying to get a joined-up view of the customer and the opportunities that can be had from unlocking the value of customer data.
As part of this, the webinar will address some of the following points:
· What role does first-party data play in marketer’s strategies, and what facts are preventing organisations from making better use of their customer data?
· How effectively are organisations joining the dots when it comes to linking their understanding of consumer journeys from online to offline? What sources of data are they using?
· How do organisations rate the importance of understanding the customer journey and for more progressive marketers, what have been the business benefits of this understanding?
· What’s driving this overall strategy – are organisations using this intelligence of the customer to drive business-focussed outcomes or measure the performance of individual campaigns?
· What new technologies are practitioners using to make sense of audiences, from marketing automation to AI and intelligent algorithms?

There is little doubt that marketers have embraced the need for a connected and cohesive customer experience. But while the new customer experience, especially the digital experience, has changed the way most organizations reach and engage with their customers, not all marketers are overjoyed with their current results. In a recent study conducted by the CMO Council and IBM, 38 percent of senior marketers admitted that the new engagement strategies in place have yielded mixed results, with some campaigns yielding expected results while others have not hit the mark.
Similar to results being spotty at best, marketers also admit that their goals for delivering a truly connected customer experience have also fallen short as only 6 percent say they have completely connected physical and digital experiences with all touchpoints, connecting and informing the next relevant and valued journey for the customer. In fact 42 percent of respondents indicated that their primary goal for the year ahead was to better connect and integrate loosely tied campaigns into a stronger, more cohesive experience that can actually drive engagement across the customer’s lifecycle with their brand.
So with that goal in mind, what needs to actually happen to deliver real customer experience success in 2017?
