There’s little doubt that 2013 was the Year of the Customer. Successful companies have always known that the “Customer is King.” What was different about 2013 was that companies, particularly their marketing and sales organizations, had better tools with which to understand their needs, wants and desires and better ways to serve these needs.
2013 was also the year in which the Modern Marketing Organization consolidated and deepened its role within large and mid-sized organizations as the owner and driver of revenue-producing initiatives and programs. More than ever before, Marketing has direct control over the sales/buying process and with it the customer journey. That change has given Marketing more opportunity to prove its value to the company, while at the same time increasing pressure to deliver results with measureable advances in performance and productivity.
