The premise driving the new thinking in this book is that the early stand-alone experimentation with new marketing channels is over for many organizations. The key now is the total integration of new techniques and technologies within the wider marketing process. e-Commerce and CRM, for instance, no longer stand alone as something to plan for separately. Instead, the core processes of marketing need to take account of e-commerce and other IT-enabled channels such as call centres.
This development has meant important new steps in decision making for marketers, who now have to choose the channels which are most appropriate for certain tasks and how they should be integrated to maximise customer value. The book focuses on:
- How marketing must integrate the interactive environment from the outset
- How the choice of channels changes the offer as well as the customer contact
- How the marketing manager's role must change
Having worked on e-commerce and CRM strategy with a range of major companies over the last four years, the authors have developed tools and frameworks to fill these gaps in traditional marketing. The New Marketing draws heavily on this direct practical experience, and offers the ideal guide to tailoring your marketing strategy to the demands and opportunities of the 21st century marketplace.
- Provides the marketing framework and tools to help you integrate traditional and e-marketing techniques
- Shows how to adapt your marketing role to maximize the customer value and channel advantage
- Written by the best selling author of Marketing Plans in collaboration with the leading e-marketing expert
