June 2021: Post-pandemic Marketing Mix: Branding + Performance Marketing
Many corporate treasury and finance marketers dramatically accelerated their use of digital marketing during the pandemic, focusing on lead-generation and other performance marketing tactics.
But as a recent article in the Harvard Business Review points out (Ten Truths About Marketing After The Pandemic) as we move forward there is a strong need to balance brand/product awareness and performance marketing to achieve the best results.
Many companies are bringing their customer relationship (CRM) team closer than ever to their media teams to see the full continuum more easily and realize efficiencies,” writes the author, Janet Balis who heads consultant E&Y’s CMO practice.
“It will be important for companies to leave space for both brand and performance marketing given that bottom funnel strategies drive top funnel goals and vice versa. Simply put, they work better together,” she says.
I couldn’t agree more. And this is a key reason why Treasury & Risk is now offering a new Integrated Marketing Hub solution.
