Winning Customer Engagement in the Age of Digital
07 Sep - 09 Sep
Tata Management Training Centre
Digitization, a major business shift that has had a huge impact on the way organizations engage with stakeholders, is transforming traditional marketing among many other aspects of business operations. A critical element of this step change is the ubiquity of social media, which exercises powerful influences on consumers, as indeed on all other parts of the ecosystem. “The proliferation of digital channels and devices gives consumers greater access to information, the means for communication and collaboration….. information aggregation and price comparison have evolved…. consumers used to rely on brand communication and brand values to make informed choices…. todays's consumers trust each other more than they trust corporations and/or brands…..” [The digitization of everything-How organizations must adapt to changing consumer behaviour - Ernst&Young, 2011]. With this shift in information monopoly to two- way communication, it is imperative for marketing professionals to appreciate the different aspects of digital, and to understand consumer behavior with respect to social media. Today this is a vital capability for driving the conversation with your consumers, and retaining and strengthening customer relationships in order to remain competitive and win in this new environment.
