Marketing Imperatives for Retail & Consumer Goods



The Award-Winning Series Continues
The Rise of the Platform Marketer™ for Retail & Consumer Goods

About the Marketing Imperatives for Retail & Consumer Goods

Put the 2014 Marketing Imperatives for Retail & Consumer Goods Companies into Action and Reap the Rewards

The balance of power within retail and consumer goods companies has shifted: Consumers are in charge. They are connected, informed and empowered through multiple interchangeable channels ranging from social media to mobile, from offline stores to omni-channel platforms. Today’s consumers expect an engaging, immediate and personalized experience, regardless of where and when they research, browse, shop and purchase. As a result, retailers and consumer goods companies must constantly evolve to reach their targeted audiences, create differentiated experiences and compete aggressively for the attention and loyalty of their desired customers. But how can a retailer or consumer goods company achieve personalization at scale, connecting with each customer as an individual through their preferred channels?

Delivering the promise of omni-channel through addressability at scale

One of the greatest opportunities for attaining competitive advantage in the digital marketing age is through addressability at scale (AAS) — the ability to attract new customers and build loyalty with existing customers using a diverse range of digital audience platforms. Using digital platforms to extend their reach, retailers and consumer goods companies can deliver targeted, personalized experiences to consumers, enabled through the application of data at a massive scale — when, where and how the customer chooses. Retailers who achieve AAS have:

  • The ability to create and manage a 360-degree view of the customer across offline and digital platforms
  • The ability to micro-target and personalize the media and channel experience of their customers
  • The ability to use customer insights to inform merchandising decisions including product allocation, promotions and pricing strategies
  • The ability to measure media and the consumer’s path to purchase to iteratively improve marketing return on investment (MROI)

To fully deliver on the promise of omni-channel and tap into the vast opportunities of digital platforms, leading retail and consumer goods organizations are at the forefront of CRM transformation centered on the customer — employing new marketing capabilities, infrastructure and vision. The 2014 Marketing Imperatives provide a blueprint for successful CRM transformation. Are you ready?
