What is covered:
More than 90% of the customer journey is fulfilled in digital channels, as self-reliant buyers flood websites, research products online and eliminate vendors. It’s now marketing’s job to win their business, which is why nine out of 10 marketers are expected to grow revenue.
The value of marketing has never been greater nor has the pressure ever been tougher. Today’s modern marketer needs new demand-creation strategies, data-literacy skills, audience and market insights, and the ability to act in the digital buyer’s moment of need.
This webinar was put on by the CMO Council and from thought leaders at Televerde, Pitney Bowes and Henkel which explored what marketers need to survive and thrive in the new digital reality. Get a sneak peek of the findings from our cornerstone study of how modern marketers are addressing the forever-changed buyer’s journey, in “Rising Above The Fray.”
