Digital Disruption and Transformation of Marketing:
How to Save the Relevancy of Your Advertising Business

Tuesday 29 October 2019

With the emergence of digital technology, the nature of competition has fundamentally changed — not only to the media but also their advertising clients. Using innovative new business models, startups are stealing customers by breaking the links in how consumers discover, buy and use products and services. By decoupling the customer value chain, these startups, instead of taking on the Unilevers and Nikes, BMW’s and Sephoras of the world head on, peel away a piece of the consumer purchasing process. The media know it well, having been disrupted by Google and Facebook, Alibaba and Tencent, and others.

In order to stay relevant in this fast changing marketplace, media publishers need to understand how consumers have changed the ways they purchase products and services, and how this affects the ways in which marketers work and plan their advertising spend.

Based on his research at Harvard Business School and the University of Oxford, Grzegorz “Greg” Piechota invites you on a journey to develop a strategy of responding to digital disruption. Not only for the media companies like yours, but for your clients too.
