The New Marketing Reality

The traditional funnel no longer works. It assumes audiences are linear and predictable in their behaviour. At the same time, it doesn’t take into account the fact that people will act the way they want to act, rather than sticking to a sequence designed by marketers. To help marketers break free from these processes that are stopping them from capitalising on the opportunities that more agile, disruptive companies are enjoying, The New Marketing Reality report, produced in association with IBM Watson Marketing, identifies some key areas ripe for change.
