Marketing Strategy - multichannel mix. Future messages. Marketing trends...



Future marketing strategy is more than about altering a marketing mix for multichannel customers. Marketing needs to change values as well as messaging in a world dominated by instant information and insight / feedback from our online friends and extended social networks. It means an end to hype and spin or exaggerated claims, and a focus on what is true, valid claims, accurate information, detailed feedback from real customers, genuine facts, verifiable data. This a post-marketing world: in the last century, the source of most customer information about products or services came from the marketing team itself. Today, most of the information that a customer ever learns about what you want to sell them is probably coming from other sources. That means we need to completely rethink how we position marketing messages. The very word "marketing" needs rethinking. The future is about personalized, insightful, timely, accurate, sensitive and intuitive advice along the journey of life. Conference keynote speaker and futurist Patrick Dixon, speaking to retail clients of Hermes in the UK on the future of marketing to retail customers.

Mobile Price Comparison: impact on retail customer sales / ecommerce. Re...



Retail impact of online price comparison using mobile devices, smartphones, aggregator sites. Shopping patterns and customer behaviour. Online sales growth from retail sites, where customers compare prices in stores or shopping malls and then buy online or from a competitor store nearby. Aggregator sites will grow rapidly, creating strong price competition, eroding viability of physical retail outlets, especially in electronic consumer goods, white label products, computers, textiles / fashion and in any other area where customers like to try before they buy.

Future of Singapore - and rapid growth of emerging markets across Asia -...



Singapore -- a hub of innovation, energy, infrastructure for business across Asia, able to broker deals, host headquarters. Why Singapore will continue to thrive as an ultra-connected transport hub, with highly skilled workforce. Video comment on Asia future trends by conference keynote speaker Patrick Dixon. Singapore is a small nation -- with barely 5 million residents -- so is a relatively neutral base from the political point of view. Singapore has strong legal systems, is stable and an easy place to do business, with many 5 star hotels and a vibrant, dynamic and entrepreneurial culture. Singapore is an easy nation for visitors from the Northern Hemisphere to feel their way around. The country still shows many signs of its British Colonial era -- with newly restored historic buildings, square pin plugs, English-model educational system, and influences on legal and parliamentary systems. Singapore is West-facing and East-facing. Most of the city's up-market Malls are dominated by Western-label brands, with streets that look familiar in style to European or American travellers, while Chinatown is a relatively small area of low-rise shops, eating places and offices with a traditional ethnic feel. Singapore has a great future, and so it is hardly surprising that the numbers of people wanting to work there is growing faster than the government is comfortable with. Work permits are becoming harder for some groups to obtain.Singapore's greatest limitation is land mass: one large island and many small ones. And linked to that is a serious water shortage, which means that despite many new projects, the country remains dependent on buying water from Malaysia.
