                                  Marketing’s New Imperative For Success:
                                  Dear colleague,

                                  It’s never been tougher to be a marketer. Media options pop up so fast that it’s hard
                                  to keep track of them all, never mind figuring out how to make them work together
                                  Is it any wonder that your customers can have a disjointed experience that erodes
                                  your brand when they interact with your company across multiple touchpoints — like
                                  your TV ads, Web site, physical locations, and call center? And what happens when
                                  disaffected customers take out their frustrations in touchpoints that you don’t con-
                                  trol, like word of mouth, blogs, and customer ratings?
                                  Unfortunately, even though marketers didn’t create these problems, all too often it’s
                                  marketers who take the blame.
                                  But, there is a solution. Some companies attract and retain the attention of their cus-
                                  tomers — across channels and over time — by focusing on the four elements of
                                  engagement: involvement, interaction, intimacy, and influence. As a result, they see
                                  increases in metrics like site visits, user contributed content, sentiment tracking, Net
                                  Promoter scores, positive posts on high-profile blogs, and, yes, even sales.
                                  Forrester’s Marketing Forum 2008 will bring together marketing leaders from top com-
                                  panies that have used engagement as a strategy for success. These executives come
                                  from a variety of industries, but they share common goals like generating sales and
                                  leads, acquiring new customers, extending the life of current customers, and building
                                  influence among prospects. You’ll come away from their sessions with both a vision for
                                  the future and a plan for how to implement engagement at your company today.
                                  In addition to our outstanding industry guests, we’ll deliver a combination of analyst
                                  presentations, in-depth case studies, analyst one-on-ones, and peer networking that
                                  will give you the actionable insights needed to lead your organization as it adopts
                                  marketing’s new imperative for success: engagement.
                                  We hope to see you in April!
