Video: Google Zeitgeist CEO Summit on future of marketing and why traditional advertising is dead in a world ruled by virtual communities. Patrick Dixon has given keynote presentations at a number of Google client events on social networks andmultichannel marketing, as well at conferences for many of the world’s largest multinationals on marketing-related issues. Many marketing teams are being left behind – there is more to online marketing than website redesign, Twitter and Facebook or bulletin boards.
Consumers are thinking and behaving in new ways, expect new things, interact differently – and are increasingly intolerant and impatient with any company that seems to be stuck in a slight time-warp.
That means a totally different approach to marketing strategy – more than just bolting on a new channel or two. More than adjusting marketing mix.
Discover why so many marketing directors are tired of marketing. Watch the video:
Digital marketing means a different mindset altogether: a big psychological jump forcorporations who have relied on large, successful websites backed by direct mail, print, TV, radio, e-mail and online advertising and maybe a few iPhone apps. Those things are no longer enough. Marketing often means rethinking the entire sales package, how we sell, what we sell, when we sell. Marketing can mean having to go back to product design teams, and engaging direct with communities online – not just people on your own websites.
Forget multichannelconsumers – think about multitasking consumers. You may think you are reaching an audience with a TV campaign, but many of them are on Facebook, or searching online, or replying to an SMS or playing games at the same time as you hope they are paying attention to you.
The days of shouting, hype and spin are over. It’s just too noisy with too many brands, too many distractions. Tomorrow’s campaigns need to be about information, revelation, timely advice, trusted friends, personal insight, sensitive timing, sharp relevance, saving time and money.
