What do you regard as the most important opportunity for 2013, and why are you focusing here?

“Attempting to optimize content for mobile and how this might dovetail with offline data to form a single view.” “Joining up online and offline data – or leveraging big data and the many sensors that collect data – we only

utilize 5% of what we collect.”

“Getting some sense out of the digital nonsense. It all LOOKS robust, but there’s little meaning in all the clicks and visits and so on. Digital is just part of the mix, but the digital industry thinks it’s holy.”

“Multichannel marketing, as they have previously heavily relied on separate disconnected channels, which have

not provided real value to their customers and therefore have not been used by their target audience.”

“Social media, but very little measurable activity has actually been done due to confusion of tools and methods,

leading to upper management lack of interest and reduction in expenditure.”

“The most important opportunity lies in optimizing digital channels through analysis, strategy and creative development. Being able to reach customers in their environment requires continual optimization, which includes bringing new channels in the mix and removing those that don’t perform.”
