Recent LIMRA research found that one-third of financial services executives believe aligning their brand’s distribution methods is their single biggest challenge in 2016. And they’re not alone. Integrating marketing throughout the buying cycle is an obstacle for not only financial services execs, but marketing professionals in every industry. As I’m sure you are aware, today’s marketing message comes in a staggering number of forms and places.
It’s true, brands are now forced to interact with their consumer audience in a growing number of ways that are too often in new areas outside their comfort zones. To accurately reach a target audience, brands need to engage with customers where they are, when they want to be reached and most importantly with a message that is consistent and authentic to the brand.
With so many marketing and distribution channels, it’s easy to understand how a once-clear marketing message can quickly become ambiguous to readers as it spreads further and further away from the corporate marketing department where it was first created. To be successful, brands must confront these challenges head-on and align their message in a way that transcends channel and has the ability to influence customers from the time it leaves the corporate marketing offices to the time it’s presented at a local level.
