5 Tech Challenges Marketers face in 2017
The year 2017 will bring major technological challenges for marketers. The marketing technology landscape is changing faster than ever before, with number of companies, apps and offerings doubling every eighteen months. It is for CMOs to decide which suite to opt for. Vendor management will be another major challenge as not exist that can serve the entire suit, so organizations typically need to go for a few of them for different functions. With the quick fire changes and innovations, CMOs are feeling redundant so many will have to go back towards continuous education with something like an Executive MBA or rely excessively on vendors to sort out their lack of grasp. Traditionally organizations have paid heed to those earning the highest, but now data will be broken down to conduct business analytics which will primarily aid in decision making for CMOs. Such analytics will even break down the customer journey to be tracked at various stages in the decision making process. This mapping will be supported by email campaigns to attract customers at the right stage.

5 Digital Marketing rules to follow in 2017
A research assignment has just been concluded which has identified five rules which must be adopted over the next year in order to effectively engage in digital marketing. Most importantly, instead of direct selling, it will be even more important to develop connections between the marketers and customers. Social media will emerge as one of the top tools to increase engagement with the audience. Most of these platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram have moved on to including visuals as a key part of their overall pie. The 80-20 principle must be followed whereby marketers must understand that only a fifth of the target customers will actually study the content and another fifth of that segment will further make the final purchase. Constant business analysis must be made in order to understand the strengths and flaws in the marketing efforts. Granular data must be analyzed in order to best keep track of trends.
Research: State of the Connected Customer
In this digital age, very few existing companies have the scale or the systems in place to cater to the unique needs of customers. Artificial intelligence is set to impact in a big way and it is understood that by the year 2020, there will be a total of fifty billion devices connected in the Internet-of-Things.Marketing research conducted by Salesforce has recently concluded that more than three-fifths of consumers claim that their buying behaviours are changing due to the advent of technology. Three gaps have been Very few are providing personalized experience. More than half those surveyed responded that they will be willing to switch brands if the marketers continue to bombard them with mass offers or discount content. Similarly, not many are using business analytics to derive predictive intelligence. So much of data exists that one can forecast business trends, yet very few are able to integrate the vast data to their marketing needs. Smartphones have added the sense of urgency to customers, but few organizations are catering towards such instantaneous demands. More millennials must be involved in marketing strategy formulation as they are more likely to possess the empathy needed to understand modern day customers.
8 Conversations you should be having with Customers on Social Media
A lot of organizations have belatedly realized that they had focused far too much on marketing when instead they could have gauged such vital business intelligence about the market simply by speaking to their own customers. Social media provides a platform for engaging with the audience in a meaningful way. Certain questions have been identified by an online publication which must be posed to customers. First of all, the marketers must realize where to find such customers and how best to reach out to them. Next up, feedback must be taken on their satisfaction levels regarding new product onboarding. Their native language must be understood so that meaningful phrases can be eked out of conversations. The ‘Whys’ must be posed such as reasons for selecting the brand, for not choosing another or why some friend was referred to. Their wants and needs must be chronicled. Their reasons for quitting on the brand must also be understood. The customers must be involved in some processes through feedback or even design. A very good medium for digital marketing is content and if this can be shared by the existing customer base, brand awareness will spread far productively.
Here’s how Platforms are Transforming how we need to Compete
When Michael Porter first proposed his philosophy on competitive edge, it was glorified the world over and he was hailed as a master strategist. Companies like P&G lapped up the concept and started dominating over its stakeholders. Yet the market changed over the next few decades the same P&G now has an open business innovation philosophy as open to its earlier closed maxim. The Coonect & Develop strategy as conceptualized by Nabil Sakkab was a resounding success with growth up by a staggering fifty percent and cost of business research going down by a fourth. Organizations can no longer control resources but they are instead a part of connected platforms. The open source software Linux was fought tooth-and-nail by Microsoft in its initial days, but now the latter is building its Cloud based capabilities around the same concept. Collaboration is the new competitive edge.
How to beat the Competition in share of voice & share of Market
In order to beat the competition it is essential to know the competitors. It is part of the business environment analysis. This is especially true of digital marketing which is growing at such a rapid pace that by 2020, companies that do not embrace such technologies will be left far behind as laggards. The competition may vary by business unit, vertical or product line. Customer choices also change frequently. A benchmarking is required as to where the organization stands up against competition. Reports must be inbuilt so that anomalies may get detected automatically. Thorough business analysis must be conducted to compare campaigns, themes and topics. For social media and content marketing, a marketing maturity curve exists. This starts at the base Emerging level followed by Foundational and then Scaling further higher up. High Performing comes next before Innovative is the top point.
