Every day, demanding customers, unforeseen competition, and disruptive new technologies hammer home that we have entered the age of the customer, where established business operations no longer work. Yet, most marketing functions still rely on decades-old methods that undermine their ability to create post-digital brand experiences and help their firms become customer-focused. Smart CMOs recognize that it is time to pivot their marketing function around the customer, rather than transactions, sales, their brand, or day-to-day operations. In March 2018, Adobe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the link between email innovation and customer obsession. To explore this topic, Forrester conducted an online survey with 256 US consumers who use personal email and 260 marketing technology and strategy decision makers at US companies with 500 or more employees. We found that email marketing can provide a way to launch customer-obsessed marketing at organizations. In fact, companies t

Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.
