CMO COUNCIL :: Programs - Renovate to Innovate
Today’s top marketing executives admit that their group’s performance is not up to par, and that’s causing a lack of influence and credibility within the corporate hierarchy. In a new survey conducted by the CMO Council, only 10 percent of the respondents say their marketing groups are “highly influential and strategic” within the company, while less than half believe their teams are “well regarded and respected.” This at a time when two-thirds of CEOs polled say their marketing groups are mission-critical for creating top-line company growth.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Marketing Professional Services - Four Myths
For decades, professional service providers, including consultants, accountants, lawyers, and others, were reluctant marketers. They thrived in a cozy world where networks of personal relationships and word-of-mouth brought them enough new clients to grow a profitable business. Those days aren�t gone, but they�re fading fast. For many services buyers, personal relationships are still the driver of purchase decisions, but the cracks in that buying model are now apparent. In a recent study of client buying behavior, analysts at Raintoday.com found that more than half of professional service ...
Hindsight Isn't Perfect When Selling Professional Services
There is something visceral in our fascination with a story, especially when we believe it relates to us. It�s what primitive man must have felt when sitting around the campfire listening to the clan�s best hunter tell how he brought down a mammoth. The value of stories to emergency workers has been documented by Gary Klein in his book Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions , (MIT Press, 1998).
