Mandate for Marketers at Marketing Nation® Summit: Start Engaging!
SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2017 -- This week at the Marketing Nation® Summit, Steve Lucas, chief executive officer of Marketo, Inc., left the audience of nearly 6,500 marketers with a call to arms – to stop marketing and start engaging!
"The time is now for marketers to stop marketing and start engaging customers, prospects, employees, and partners by curating personalized, meaningful experiences that resonate with them. This requires a new way for brands to listen, learn, and engage," said Lucas. "Winning in this digitally-connected world means delivering authentic brand experiences across all channels and touchpoints that create lasting customer relationships."
During his keynote address, Lucas offered marketers six ways to lead in the Engagement Economy:
- Focus on value, not volume
- Think about everyone as a potential brand advocate
- Dedicate people in your organization to engagement
- Make engagement a core part of every marketing process and conversation you have
- Live by the rules of listen, learn, and engage
- Employ technologies that enable you to deliver experiences at the scale that the Engagement Economy demands
