Be sure to check out other major stories from the August 22nd edition of the newsletter:
  • How can B2B marketers prove their worth to senior management? More than just generating leads and sales, they can also position their brand against the competition.
  • McKinsey has the CEO guide to customer experience. To improve the customer experience, move from touchpoints to the journey: observe, shape, perform.
