Research Says It: Traditional Marketing Is Dead

Research Says It: Traditional Marketing Is Dead | Marketing with Social Media |

Some excellent food for thought ... and points to consider when building or updating your marketing plan.

Robin Good: If you still think that there's no better way to promote your product and services other than via banner ads and traditional "broadcast"-type marketing approaches, think again. Data and research studies now confirm what many have been saying for a long time.


Traditionally advertising, PR and marketing as you know them, are working less and less.


From the original article on HBR: "Traditional marketing — including advertising, public relations, branding and corporate communications — is dead.

Many people in traditional marketing roles and organizations may not realize they're operating within a dead paradigm. But they are. The evidence is clear.

First, buyers are no longer paying much attention. Several studies have confirmed that in the "buyer's decision journey," traditional marketing communications just aren't relevant."


But if it is true that traditional marketing is dead, what will replace it?


"There's a lot of speculation about what will replace this broken model — a sense that we're only getting a few glimpses of the future of marketing on the margins.

Actually, we already know in great detail what the new model of marketing will look like. It's already in place in a number of organizations."


The solution pivots around four key points:


1. Restore community marketing.

2. Find your customer influencers.

3. Help them build social capital.

4. Get your customer advocates involved in the solution you provide.


And you can read more what are the key characterizing trait of this new model by reading the full article.
