Recruiters have to think like marketers.
Just as a marketer needs to attract customers, a recruiter needs to attract the skilled employees the company needs. To do this, recruiters must become marketers.
Marketers and recruiters must:
- Research the market
- Establish and nurture relationships
- Build and promote the company's brand
Read this for seven tips to help you think like a marketer.
"When the CMO Council recently asked more than 200 senior marketing decision makers how effectively they have aligned physical and digital experiences, half admitted that these integrated experiences were selective, at best. Yet it is alignment, consistency and connection that drive the foundational relationship between the brand and the buyer.
The CMO Council, in partnership with IBM, will host a one-hour interactive webcast with industry-leading media, entertainment and telecommunications marketers to discuss how audience insights across the digital and physical experience have been turned into action, allowing these brands to personalize and enrich each engagement.
Multiple case studies will also be discussed during the webcast that focus on the power of segmentation and innovations around cognitive computing. Speakers include Liz Miller, Senior Vice President of Marketing for the CMO Council; Jody Sarno, Dedicated Client Partner, Communications Industry for IBM; Chris Crayner, Ch
1.Meet the new consumer
The migration to mobile and social media will challenge — and change — everything we know about consumer marketing.
2. Who owns your brand?
Brand equity can no longer be bought. Online reviews now generate total market transparency for location-based businesses. Reviews tilt the balance of branding power away from companies and into the hands of customers.
3. The battle for brick-and-mortar customers is won or lost on the social web. To win, marketers must actively enlist customers as online advocates. Those who scale online review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility and more business at street level.
4. “Dark data” provides priceless operational insights
Vast amounts of unstructured, unmined sentiment data on social media provides feedback about the customer experience that you can filter using thematic analysis and use to improve operations at the national or location level.
5. Business implications
Online reputation stands betwee
1. Meet the new healthcare consumer
The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration
to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional
healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients.
2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers
Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about
doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare
consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof.
3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local
In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual
practitioners and facilities. Proliferating points of presence on the web make this
a challenge that requires technology. But healthcare marketers who scale online
review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility.
4. Business implications
Online ratings and reviews stand between everyth
Marketing and technology partners must collaborate as never before in order to delight and engage customers “in the moment.” Previously stove-piped functions are starting to work together to take a holistic approach to create great digital experiences at enterprise scale, but organizations see the need for more work to create relevant, integrated digital customer experiences in real time.IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to discover how developers and marketers are working together to provide customers exceptional digital experiences reliably, quickly, and seamlessly.The study found that while the mandate to collaborate has been heard, there is still work to be done to move to the next level and put in place technology, processes, and culture to create digital customer experience in real time.

Brands no longer hold all the cards in their relationships with consumers.
This is the age of empowered customers. They are in control, and they will quickly disengage at the first sign of irrelevance. Regaining their attention once that has happened is difficult.
That is why so many CMOs and marketers are searching for new ways to engage and transform consumer relationships.
Providing value-rich video ad experiences can mean the difference between being remembered for all the right reasons, and getting lost in the cacophony of advertising chatter.
These kinds of ads motivate consumers to take the next-best actions that drive customer behavior change and help brands achieve their business goals far more effectively than traditional formats.

Today’s marketers are leveraging technology and data to drive decision making: demand gen, marketing communications, and other disciplines can strongly demonstrate their value with metrics that summarize tangible bottomline impact on the business. That hasn’t been true for PR. In PR, we’re still tied to legacy metrics that are more about counting mentions and ‘clips’ than about measuring business impact.
While it is easy for marketers to be distracted by the power of data and technology, a new report reminds us what really drives business decisions: feelings. A new study conducted by the Financial Times Commercial Insight Group and gyro asked more than 300 FT readers across the globe to express what feelings are crucial for creating successful business relationships.
At IBM Watson Marketing, we believe deeply in this
practice and have dedicated a large effort to provide
some of this critical data to marketers.
The newest IBM Watson Marketing annual report of
marketing benchmarks is bigger and better than ever
with mobile marketing metrics data in addition to
email marketing metrics.
This year’s report includes traditional benchmark
metrics such as email marketing open, click-through
and unsubscribe rates, as well as email client and
device data and engagement/read rates. New
this year to the report are delivery and message
frequency metrics for SMS and open and clickthrough rates for mobile push messages.

Marketers have long struggled with the simple task of knowing
which marketing spend is truly effective, and how to optimize that
spend. At the heart of the issue lies the challenge of ensuring the
data quality and consistency exists to make decisions based on
Why is this a problem? First, effective tracking is reliant on the
consistent, complete application of campaign tracking codes and
associated metadata, which has traditionally been a manual, ungoverned
process. Adding to this complexity has been the dramatic
expansion of digital marketing point solutions, and the disparate
teams expected to execute across each of these channels and geographies.
The result is what you would expect—highly inaccurate,
incomplete, and inconsistent data that must be manually cleaned
before reporting is possible.
Fortunately a solution exists. Progressive marketing leaders are
implementing Digital Experience Data Management (DXDM), ensuring
the rich, consistent insights critical to ma

Forming bonds is slow. Arduous. And it must be done step by painstaking step. Cultivate your leads with the right content at the right times to propel demand and mold opinions before your prospects are ready to buy.
Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.
What does it take to be relevant today? In the era of hyper-connectivity, consumers
have become entitled, demanding more control over their experiences and
expecting that marketers use data and insights to create a seamless, relevant brand
experience. Research shows that communications containing relevant information
and offers are the best drivers of brand loyalty and conversions
Context can make or break the communication – and, ultimately, the relationship – between
a consumer and a brand. Today’s consumers expect relevant communications that speak
directly to their needs in the moment. We have the technology today to deliver such messages –
but there are significant barriers to developing relevant, contextual programs of this kind.
Some of the development challenges represent new versions of old challenges. Take data as an
example: it has always been hard to harness data from different sources and to leverage insights in
real time. But today, there are additional opportunities – if not expectations – for marketers to use
contextual data to better reach and engage customers through the optimal channel(s).

Marketing value metrics enable marketers to measure the impact of marketing activity against organisational goals more effectively and empowers marketing teams and their leaders to justify and defend their plans to their CEOs and CFOs.

Migrating to a new marketing automation platform (MAP) is like moving into a new house. You have to itemize everything that’s moving with you, pack up all your data, and say goodbye to the way it was before. Forever. And it doesn’t end after you’ve shifted - you’re going to have to spend some time living out of boxes, gradually unpacking, and realizing you’d like to organize things a little differently as you go.
That having been said, most marketers consider platform migration a big headache.
Everybody in marketing is chasing today’s consumers as they hop from channel to channel on their digitally empowered customer journeys. Some marketers are more successful than others. Brands with integrated omnichannel touchpoints can let customers start researching a product on their laptop, receive related advertising on social, ask questions on chat, make the purchase on their phone, and pick up the product at their nearest store.
Retailers who can identify their customers and deliver hyperpersonalized engagement on any channel are the ones thriving in this new age of retail. As the old model of inventory-led retail becomes obsolete, forward-thinking marketers deliver a new generation of shopping experiences with a common focus: the individual consumer.
In our Personalization Handbook for Retail Marketers, we’ll provide a toolset of proven strategies and technologies to help marketers leverage personalization for longterm wins such as increased customer loyalty, spending frequency and lifetime value. Starting things off, we’ll discuss why hyper-personalization is the only constant in today’s rapidly changing retail landscape.
Here’s the reality for retail marketers today: personalization is no longer an option. It’s the key to keeping your customers engaged – and spending. Brands that get it right stand to gain a lot. Those who don’t, lose. Consider some of the major retailers that have failed in recent years.
