Targeting consumers in the right place at the right time in their purchasing process is challenging for many organizations, especially as consumers now use a variety of channels and devices for research and planning purposes. As we find ourselves in an “experience economy,” it is now more important than ever to break through the noise and provide customers with the opportunity to engage with your brand.
