Not digital marketing, just marketing

Findings from the Gartner 2015-2016 Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Spend Survey clearly show that the term “digital marketing” is on the wane. The survey reports that many chief marketing officers are “done” with the term digital marketing – it’s just called marketing now. The report states that 98 per cent of marketers no longer make a clear distinction between marketing online and offline and say the disciplines are merging.

While the term “digital marketing’ may feel overused, some marketing teams still have a learning curve ahead of them.
