It’s no secret that customers demand high-quality, seamless digital experiences when they’re engaging with a brand. From the first touchpoint through the eventual renewal or second purchase, marketing has the ability to positively impact every interaction a customer has with the company. The challenge, however, lies in integration; finding ways to integrate the people, processes, and technology across an organization in order to deliver those unified experiences.
More and more, marketing teams are being asked to take on added responsibility when it comes to delivering exceptional customer experiences. We see this already in CMO roles being replaced by the new executive role CXO: Chief Experience Officers. The days of a demand-gen-only function for marketing are long gone. Here to stay is the expectation that marketing owns or influences almost every moment within the customer journey.
That’s why it’s important for marketers to put in time to understand the people, processes, and technology driving their counterparts in sales and service. When a marketing organization has better insight into the goals and resources driving how customers are won and grown, the more enabled the marketing team becomes in delivering the type of unified, integrated experience customers expect.
