You will then begin exploring at what point on the decision journey it makes sense for you to interact. With that understanding, the right channel will be evident.

You will gain insight into today’s greatest marketing challenges: how to offer a cohesive experience both online and offline, and how to create content that authentically engages your customers, who, in turn, will create their own content that drives the next generation of customers.
