Eli: Brand marketing has been mainly offline, but is moving more and more online, especially in search and especially for big brands.
Dana: Want it to be measurable and see ROI. Branding is not just exposure to a brand over and over. There is no funnel. People don’t suddenly go into buying mode just because they’ve been exposed to something. We need to test with search, it’s not just about the next big idea.
Alan: it’s all about people and where they’re spending their money. The CMO doesn’t want to see huge changes in structure, but it can change slowly over time, naturally. Probably in the next 3-5 years.
