Challenges in building enduring brands in the era of the distracted customer
In the global marketplace where companies are focused on customer experience, brand marketing leaders are working intently on transforming marketing initiatives into Customer Engagement Programmes that drive business growth.
To deliver value to the customer and achieve customer satisfaction, brands are constantly innovating new business models.
As traditional business models get de-constructed, new templates driven by API’s and the ‘internet of things’ are setting the pace across diverse industries. And, most of these new-age businesses are riding exponential, beyond-belief growth curves as well.
Buoyed by limitless possibilities of wireless technology, improved bandwidth and the internet, we are witnessing an acceleration of ‘Market-creating innovations’ – innovations that open up markets that did not previously exist. The traditional notion of management teams focused on product innovation, efficiency gains and quality improvement pose a huge risk in this environment as they operate within a limited frame.
Change is the only constant. But, are the companies adapting to this change? Which organizations are truly practicing the customer centric approach in this new era? What are the tech innovations to pursue?
We’ll explore the evolving role of marketers, what expertise they need to bring, where they need to be doubling down, what move they need to play and the metrics that will lead to future success.
