94% of the CEOs and CMOs we surveyed said the main feature this year was slowing growth or even declining sales. What awaits us in the near future: economic recovery or a new recession? How can marketers competently influence sales in the new environment? These and other issues will be in the focus of attention of the XIV TOP Marketing Business Forum, which will be held on November 26, 27 and 28 in Moscow
Today, more than ever, shareholders expect marketing to increase sales and increase profits. According to a Fournaise Marketing Group study, 73% of top managers don’t see how sales in their companies are related to marketing efforts. The trend has been a gradual reduction in marketing budgets and an increase in sales targets for marketing teams. Meanwhile, buyers have become more demanding, more active in communication through social networks and more resistant to marketing influences, tired of the huge flow of information from brands. According to the JWT agency, information overload, which has intensified in the last 2-3 years, will reach a critical point in the very near future.
However, over the past year, new approaches, tools and technologies have appeared that allow marketers to achieve better results than ever without spending significant resources.
