  • Brands are continually looking for new ways to communicate and connect with target audiences. At the same time, they need to outflank competitors that are pursuing the same consumers. It means brands are experimenting, innovating and looking for different approaches and tools to gain an edge, even if it is a small advantage. It explains why we have seen the embrace of social media and content marketing in recent years. [via the Salesforce Blogs]

  • Customer engagement has never been more urgent or more elusive. Real engagement – the kind that goes beyond a momentary impression to a meaningful interaction – isn’t happening on traditional channels. It’s happening today on digital platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, SnapChat, and Instagram.

The perspectives of these executives suggest that the pace of innovation shows no sign of slowing down. [via Harvard Business Review]
