I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks. Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Marketing and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Everything is measurable in marketing. Leadership must commit the time, people and resources to measure what they ask for. One of the most frequent cliches in marketing analytics is that there are things that simply can’t be measured. People will say, “Well, you can’t measure some stuff. It’s intangible. There’s no way to measure branding, the impact of public relations or any more complex forms of measurement.” To which I say: That is patently untrue, completely false. Everything in marketing is measurable, from top to bottom, from brand to customer satisfaction to purchases — you can measure 100% of marketing. People mean that not everything in marketing can be measured because they don’t have the budget and resources to measure what they care about. They can’t measure using the resources available to them, whether time, personnel, hard dollars, or organizational skills. Some organizational constraints prohibit them from measuring effectively, but those constraints are not the same as saying something can’t be measured.
Good morning: The unpredictability at the heart of marketing. Marketers never know for sure how a story is going to end. That’s why so many are open to experimenting with the metaverse. Good morning, Marketers, and never say never. What makes emerging technologies so exciting in martech is that there’s no surefire way to know how the story will end. Will there be disruption, as is the case with D2C retail, or an entire new ecosphere, like what came out of the original App Store? There is an experimental ethos at the heart of marketing and of digital technology that keeps me glued to my seat every day as a journalist. Our MarTech flash survey found that out of over 200 respondents, the marketers who are considering some kind of commercial effort in the metaverse outnumber those who never will, approximately three-to-one. As more brands launch storefronts in VR environments, and we at MarTech ask the hard questions about campaign execution and success, there’s a chance that some of the “nevers” will convert. But for any marketing strategy, there has to be a good reason backed by data and experienced reporting.
