Strengthen marketing's role.
Does your management team see marketing as an asset or an afterthought?
Your CMO takes the lead on delivering market insights, cultural shifts, and customer trends to the rest of the company (rather than fighting over budgets or simply reacting to requests from the field).
Your marketing team works like a finely-tuned engine towards your organization's long-term goals, (not to churn out disconnected small projects from an ever-growing list of deadlines).
And management empowers marketing to declare their independence from other departments so they can become visionaries, strategists, and producers of communications that change minds and inspire sales.
Why? Because marketing has the unique capacity to see into the future. They have their fingers on the customer's pulse. And they own the tools to manifest your highest aspirations to the world.
Change Brings Opportunity
Welcome to the post-trust economy, where change is the new normal and consumers run the show. We’re all experiencing:
Shifting consumer behaviors
Ongoing global health crises
Any attempt to power through this messy marketplace using yesterday’s marketing assumptions is likely to fail.
The Need is Urgent
Your customers aren’t spending at “normal” rates, but they are spending. They’re harder to reach, for sure. And their reasons for buying have shifted, as well as their reliance on touchy-feely, in-person decision making.
Now, before they choose your brand, they must trust you. Their values must align with your ethics, your culture, your reputation, and your environmental footprint.
