‘Digital innovation changing marketing paradigms’
Speaking at the Marketing Edge national stakeholders summit in Lagos, the Group Managing Director of SO&U limited, Mr. Udeme Ufot, MFR, while delivering the key note speech on “Marketing Paradigms in the Age of Digitalization” challenged organizations to be more receptive to digital innovation for marketing because key marketing paradigms have been seriously challenged or transformed, sometimes in ways we never imagined.
Today, technology is democratising information with its ubiquitous spread and transforming customer choices, which are changing the market place.
According to Mr. Udeme Ufot, “Marketing is acquiring a very nebulous nature where the marketer is spoilt for choice when it comes to opportunities for consumer engagement but yet hugely challenged by loss of control of what the consumer sees, hears or even hoe he receives same”
He continued, “At the click of a button, the consumer can have virtually whatever information he needs, even those he does not seek are thrust before him.
At the click of a button, he can literally transport himself to any market he desires, compare offerings, and negotiate the best deals for himself.
If he is unhappy with the service he has received, or disappointed with the performance of your brand, he can spread easily the word globally in a matter of seconds.
