Integrated Marketing - What Does It Mean?
During the integrated marketing panel, attendees on the floor interacted with speakers on stage - David Lee, head of eTailer and social commerce at Dell Global, Yean Cheong, head of digital at UM Asia Pacific, and Nick Fawbert, CEO from Third Space Consulting, discussed what it means to be an integrated marketer, the challenges, and skill-sets required.
"Integrated marketing has to follow the consumer, or simply defined as integrated marketing equals to consumer," Cheong said.
Agreeing with Cheong, a marketer from the audience added that integrated marketing should bring a cohesive and consistent story to the consumer.
The panel wrapped up with speakers acknowledging that the younger demographic tends to be less uptight on privacy issues for fear of missing out on social platforms.
