Introducing the Modern Marketing Model
The increase in new channels and technologies has dramatically changed the environment in which marketers operate, but the way in which marketing is taught, understood and operates has not really changed. This is not sustainable. We need a new unifying framework as a reference for what marketing has become.
The Modern Marketing Model is a unifying force which fuses digital and classic marketing into one future-facing framework. This informs marketing’s remit, required competencies and organisational design. M3 defines marketing in the digital age.

Specifically, instilling a customer centric mindset is […]

These structures are no easy task to define, given the lines between marketing, PR, advertising, ecommerce, tech, operations, product, design, sales and customer service can blur. Before we get […]
Whilst there is a lot of talk about ‘data’, big or otherwise, GDPR-compliant or otherwise, it can be hard to understand what exactly is meant by ‘data’. And, for the marketing function, it is unclear what remit, roles and responsibilities around ‘data’ can be expected of it. Therefore, I have made an initial attempt to […]
I wrote about the need for a “modern” way of working here in part one of this series about applying the Econsultancy Modern Marketing Model (M3) to your business.

Not just generalists, but expert generalists (it’s a real thing, Google it). The soft skills of traditional marketing are not enough anymore.
