Guest post: Courtney Wylie VP Product and Marketing, Mention Me.
The marketing landscape is dramatically different to six months ago.
Budgets are frozen. Events are cancelled. Consumer behaviour has changed.
In fact, 86% of consumers say they’ve changed their behaviour as a direct result of Covid-19.

But these channels are set to aggressively rebound in cost and deliver fewer returns.
Instead, marketers should turn to their existing customers.
A strategy for success: customer-led growth
By putting customer engagement at the forefront of their marketing strategies, brands can turn one-off transactions into happy lifetime customers.
