Over three quarters of executives say R&D and use of Market Research will either stay the same or increase! </li></ul><ul><li>“ Customer Satisfaction” & “Customer Retention ” are still the marketing concepts which are most interesting and relevant to most marketing executives </li></ul><ul><li>Other popular marketing concepts include: Marketing ROI, Brand Loyalty, Segmentation, Quality, SEO, Competitive Intelligence, and Data Mining </li></ul><ul><li>Most likely due to the current economic condition, Credit Availability, Housing Markets, Alternative Energy, Trade Deficits, have become much more important than last year; and Off-Shoring has diminished the most in importance </li></ul><ul><li>Several executives indicated that they are a bit tired of hearing “Web 2.0” and other Web 2.0 related buzzwords such as “blogs” and “social networking” </li></ul>

(58% vs. 49% from a year ago) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Good to Great remains the most widely read book among the executives; Good to Great is also well regarded as it is the one book marketers are most likely to recommend to others. </li></ul><ul><li>Seth Godin remains the favorite marketing/business guru this year as well.

  • 14. Marketing Issues <ul><li>Quotes from the respondents… </li></ul><ul><li>(Q: Please describe in as much detail as possible a specific marketing issue you are currently interested in, and why it is important? ) </li></ul>“ In this economy, too many people are trying to shrink their way to success - cutting faster than the next person. I think its critical to go on offense while the competition is hiding. Finding inexpensive ways to gain competitive advantage and grow share is critical to longer term success when the economy starts to recover.” “ Unifying the customer experience (with the brand) across the myriad of communication mediums.” “ The sense of entitlement among gen Y ers and what that means in terms of expectations as a consumer. “ “ Focused and Disciplined Innovation. Too much innovation today is based on non-disciplined approaches (ad hoc, subjective, limited research) due to lack of time and/or budget. The result is poor success rates, lack of confidence in the innovation function, and too much employee turnover. More time and effort needs to be devoted to determine what innovation opportunities exist and properly defining the requirements before ideation, concept development and product development occur.” “ With the onset of so many forms of disruptive media in recent years, it is challenging to know how much of your investments Should be flagged… the tried and true and how much to set earmark for testing. In addition, ROI is measured differently for one media type or marketing method. When innovative methods come onto the scene, analytics driven marketers may abandon an effort prematurely because they did not plan it with the appropriate objective or realistic ROI…” “ As we all sprint to compete in this flat, wired, 24/7 world, I believe it is absolutely essential to ensure brand health and consistent equities across the globe. The FUTURE lies in emerging markets, but it takes years, sometimes a generation, to build a brand and the time to start is NOW.”
