Until recently, the development of marketing technologies has occurred at a high enough pace to preclude a new definition of marketing.
But now, we feel the new discipline can be defined in broad terms, with digital pervading pretty much everything you do as marketers.
Next week the Festival of Marketing debuts in the city of London, with conferences, events and parties all hung off the core tenets of Econsultancy’s Modern Marketing Manifesto. At the festival we’ll add the detail to the manifesto. Which brands are doing precisely what? And is it working? How have benchmarks moved?
If you haven’t seen the festival line-up, check out the website, and if you haven’t read our manifesto, check that out, too. We’ve had great feedback on our new definition of marketing, with many of you ‘signing’ in agreement by commenting on this post.
As part of this search for feedback, we recently surveyed around 700 Econsultancy users and assayed what level of agreement they show with the ‘pillars’ of the manifesto.
Although we had already incorporated your opinions into our draft, we wanted to find out how precisely the final treatise hits the nail on the head, or if indeed we’ve missed the nail and struck a thumb.
