Marketing used to be straightforward. The creative agency would come up with a compelling message, hand it over to the media agency to push out across owned and paid channels, and advertisers would sit back and watch their message reach the masses. Things are a little more complicated now.

it’s not what you say, it’s what they say

With the rise of social media, messaging, and chat, consumers are more connected and empowered than ever before. And in this modern world – where more than 3.4 billion people are connected via modern channels – brands need to rethink how marketing is done; the way they listen to, learn from, and make their customers happier. Marketing today is about what they say – not what you say. And that means a unified customer experience is more important than ever before.

To reach and engage with the modern, connected customer, successful brands must adapt to the new realities of this unified customer experience. Marketers must create a modern marketing strategy in a landscape characterized by three new realities: channels are proliferating, content is bi-directional, and consumers are in control.

“By increasingly bringing the voice of our customer into our business, we have given ourselves permission to reimagine how we approach insights and marketing – which is an important step to being a customer-first business,” said Paul Matson, US director of engagement and customer experience, McDonald’s.

From planning to producing, as well as publishing and analyzing marketing content, you can take the guesswork out of marketing by understanding seven key modern marketing principles, brought to life through real brand examples from Apple, Shell, Red Bull, and Nike.

To be successful, marketers should always begin with the end goal in mind, following the OKR model (Objectives and Key Results) to drive alignment throughout the organization and produce Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound (SMART) actions to drive efficiency and business results.
