Marketing executives are going back to basics this year, putting renewed focus on satisfying and retaining customers and investing in research and insights, but they are “sick” of hearing about Web 2.0, according to a survey from Anderson Analytics conducted for the Marketing Executives Networking Group (MENG) . The second annual Top Marketing Trends survey of MENG members examined the top marketing concepts, buzzwords, global areas of opportunity and targeted customer demographics for 2009, as well as the books and thought leaders that marketers look to for inspiration and growth opportunity. The economy played a ...
Q&A, Part Two: Microsoft, Yahoo Execs Discuss Search Partnership ...
The pair (pictured here) are in charge of a two-year effort to coordinate a massive search and online advertising partnership, the result of a deal the companies struck last year. It is critical they get it right, as Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO) have a lot riding on the success of the effort, which is an attempt to catch up with search giant and dominant market leader Google (GOOG). The companies–one from Washington state and the other from Silicon Valley–have a combined share of close to 30 percent, and the hope is that together the partnership is a better offering to both advertisers and consumers.

Are Newspapers Sticking to a Premium Strategy | Daype Classifieds
Six months into 2010, this is shaping up to be a better year for newspapers. One might be cheered simply by the pace and scope of experimentation in 2010: digital futurism headlining the Newspaper Association of America’s annual conference, nontraditional publishers and CEOs taking the helm of several metros, and tests of limited paid online content. I’m less certain, however, that the industry is sending readers and advertisers a clear signal of what newspapers are changing into. Or, for that matter, that the execs know themselves where they are headed. In that frame of mind, I was struck by a recent article and ... market research, surveys and trends

YouTube Raises Hope & Not So Savvy Parents
It's a fact - our Millennial children are having little Millennials of their own. And perhaps not having paid a lot attention to their own role models - they're struggling with the new job responsibilities. Marketers and TV execs are using YouTube and humor to portray the angst and struggle of the latest generation to adjust to their new roles as first-time parents. Gen Y parenting is the subject of a series of commercials by Evenflo , makers of child car seats and a Fox TV Show airing in the fall called ' Raising Hope .' Parents represented in both projects, while digitally-savvy have no clue as to how best ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Ken Bernhardt column - The Changing Role of Marketing
I have had several opportunities recently to think about the changing role of marketing and senior marketing executives. Some, but not all, of the changes are being caused by the changing economic environment. Others are caused by the changing technological environment, and still others by the changing consumer. What got me started on this track was hearing a former student, Rick Lenny, retired president, chairman, and CEO of the Hershey Company and former president of divisions of Nabisco and Pillsbury, talk about his views of the changing role of marketing. Lenny stated that the marketing function and its leaders must ensure ...
Which functional head in an organisation best deserves to be the ...
Leaders tend to come from the sales, production and finance functions because these are the most established functions with likely the broadest experience. But a good HR person could be the leader, or IT or whatever. The key is that the leader is just that, the leader. If the person has to do their old functional role and be the leader then this is where problems occur. Hope that helps. posted 3 months ago Hi, Any person can be the leader for an organization if he has those leadership qualities/traits in him/her. Rather than the designation, the qualities that he contains would be more important. Thanks, Mamatha posted 3 months ago
