CMO Council Study Finds Blind Spots in Delivery of Go-to-Market MaterialsNovember 29, 2010
“Overlooking the final ‘field and prospect delivery’ elements of the demand chain can be costly, and operationally disruptive,” said Mike Moroz, President of Archway Marketing Services. “Far too often, we see amazingly planned and executed creative fall desperately short due to a poor integration between these two segments of the demand chain—the creative strategy and customer engagement through fulfillment.”
The 50-page “Competitive Gain in the Demand Chain” report includes detailed findings of over 260 marketing executives and in-depth qualitative interviews with over 267 executives from brands including Advance Auto Parts, Allergan, Hershey, MGM Resorts, Oracle, Subway, and T.Rowe Price. The online quantitative audit was conducted in the third quarter of 2010, with findings collected through November 2010.
