Customers today are hyper-connected and more empowered than ever. They want advantages that only digital platforms provide, such as constant access, broad selection, and dynamically delivered information. They also want the advantages of physical assets, such as personal service, the ability to touch products, and a personal shopping ‘experience’. Essentially, customers now expect to be served wherever they want, whenever they want it; and through whatever channel they want.
“Marketing has always been multichannel – it’s just that we didn’t have quite so many to use, integrate, and manage as we do today!” – Industry Blogger
Satisfying demand can be a proverbial Catch 22 for marketing leaders. They are being asked to deliver better results and streamline budgets; yet customer expectations continue to escalate and channels proliferate. All of which requires customer-centric organizations to communicate and interact in even more ways through websites, stores, branch offices, direct mail and catalogs, call centers, kiosks, and/or networked devices. Thinking through this paradox can be a daunting task.
Effective Multichannel Marketing Strategies - Learning Objectives
The purpose of our workshop is to help marketers build successful multichannel strategies that connect with customers in increasingly meaningful ways across discrete yet interconnected channels. And to do so in a fiscally responsible way that fits their business model and organizational structure.
