The Future Of Marketing

The Future Of Marketing

Incite keynote for Manifest London - covering the future of marketing, covering the past, the present and the future of marketing and growth. Including the three decades of change that reshaped business and how marketing has had to evolve constantly from being the strategic department to being the department that became channel obsessed.

Including why
🏷 Brands have never been so diluted as today
🆕 We have never had so much competition
📱The mobile makes brands operate in micro-moments and not thinking in the macro
🔰The typical funnel is ignored - it becomes task-oriented - I have x task to complete and brands compete at every turn to have attention
💁‍♂️ Mobile users demand “know me” anywhere, anytime

Telling some truths:
Without a good product - marketing is impossible expensive
Without good Marketing, sales is really misleading tricky
Without # of Sales, Marketing & Product are @ fault 👀

To Advantage Marketing:
Marketing is the only department that has to: Predict, Build, Buy & Pull the future forward. So marketing teams have to shape everything from messaging to advertising to product and product positioning.

And why the 4p's and 4c's and funnel has to be reshaped to the more modern world of business: Awareness, Discovery, Conversation, Entertainment, Engagement, Influence, Planning & Inspiration, Technical, Messaging, Press, Extensions, Knowledge

Marketers still struggle to understand the like of Twitch and it’s communities. • 👀 Mass Marketing there are huge eye balls will command huge budgets and spends. That won’t ever change. • 👍 Tech Backlash Continued kick back against GAFA. Especially Google and Facebook. Those ad boycotts didn’t last long. • 👂 Clubhouse etc will be hot for the rest of the year.

  50. 👀 Seems easy 😤 Seems like everyone can do it

    🤕 Anyone can write an email or write ad copy right? 💴 Anyone can buy customers from social? 👧 Many people with “Senior titles” in Marketing seems young Being Brutally Honest: Marketing
  51. • Killing performance anxiety • Politics and defending your departments

    and teams performances • Get department together change the thinking: 
 Department fi rst - Team second (team - we - me) • Once Marketing departments breakdown its me - then we - then team - then department. This will cause a year of pain. • Death by Vanity Metrics and Dashboards - don’t hide behind them, get insights • Not knowing the di ff erence between actions, tactics & strategy • Having little to no in fl uence over Product • Growth teams outside of Marketing • Knowing what activity moved the needle • Not being able to say x = y • Letting other business owners devalue Brand The main challenges for Marketing leaders
  52. None
  53. 2021 — ♾ Marketing has to connect with the customer

    far more than any other department, whether you are B2B or B2C
  54. 1⃣ We have to stop obsessing about social media* 


    - sorry not sorry 2⃣ Gone are the days of hiding behind buzzwords 
 - simple wins every time 3⃣ Marketing has to create curiosity to cause demand 
 - we seem to have forgotten this 4⃣ Growth has become a gift & curse if a proper Growth team they will be moving needles you have struggled to move for years 
 - show how you move needles Proactive: Marketing Has To Lead The Charge

  56. Data has misled many younger Marketers Yes data is important

    but how do you think marketers did it before head heart gut 🧠 - this is right data is there, easy (limited creativity) ❤ - this feels right, the data backs this up we are behind this it’s going to work (more creative) 🥑 - our intuition is saying this is going to work there is no data or the data is wrong 
 We are so behind this we are going to make it work. (Super creative)
  57. The Best Marketers: - Have empathy - Have a true

    gut feel - Know how to read & talk to the room - How to write the right tone - And importantly can balance tone and brand requirements
  58. Brand and Product Partnerships are tricky, hard and political however

    an overlooked part of Marketing Image Sources: Krispy Kreme 🙌 🤫 Learn from Music, YouTube etc 
 Audience borrowing & engagement 🙌 🙌 🤫 & 20 year cycles work brilliant 🙌
  59. A Quick Story Break: - I used to get sent

    to companies to problem solve or workshop Marketing department problems - I was sent to 🇩🇪 to help a large well known food delivery company - They had the best team dynamics, just never workshopped together in a di ff erent way - Delivered a TV campaign in 30 min session - Extremely successful as Product, Sales, Marketing & Business leads are all aligned on collaboration

  113. TLDR: Challenging to measure Dark is where your valuable referrals

    are mostly coming from. Dark will be hurting your brand when people talk about you as you cannot say anything. Think bad restaurant experience you will tell anyone who will listen. Online & chat is the same

    is going to work • Taking ownership of true Growth not just Performance Marketing. 🇬🇧 needs to be more 🇺🇸 like with proper Growth teams in fl uencing Product Growth tests and innovations • Become trusted the internal partner of other teams - Marketing silo-ed themselves in most orgs • Building specialist with generalist mindset • Co train & champion all disciplines across your team or agency • Remove Internal Frictions: Marketing Departments fracture quickly as it becomes teams over departments - be the glue and bring your teams into the Marketing team. The Marketing department used to be the department to be in • Most marketing teams end up hitting ceilings quickly - remove the ceiling for sta ff . Smart Marketers are moving into Product roles for more in fl uence and more opportunities within businesses • Not siloing teams bring internal teams closer together The Future Of Smart Marketing Teams

  217. Idea / Concept 💡 Quick Why 🤔 Curation over algorithms

    We are bored with algorithmic content, curation takes time, e ff ort and human thought Think O ff i cial X Supplier Think how you could leverage old behaviour & become the o ffi cial supplier of x. IE - Red Bull: O ff i cial Performance Drink Supplier Everything Browser - No Desktop Software 👩💻 Miro etc is the future, software on the desktop is dying. Look at how you build in the browser & entertain Advertising in space 🚀 Was trendy on and o ff 2019 - 2020, it is the unknown and unseen and will always be seen as cool Advertising in the sea 🐬 So many opportunities to support sea life and be part of something great. Under the sea is an experience 98% of never experience 100 fans over 100000 💯 Marketing has been a numbers game for many years, smart marketers are seeing less is more. X Currency / X-coin 🤑 Bitcoin and crypto is something a few have ventured into but banks are buying into it - this means it will be a discussion point in boardrooms, getting a brand currency out will be good marketing
