Biggest 2009 industry trends: “In 2009, the question on the minds of most every CMO — and CFO — is, ‘How can we get more bang for fewer bucks?'” says Banks. “This has been a trend for some time and always accelerates during economic downturns. Canny CMOs will take advantage of this opportunity to drive accountability across their entire marketing spectrum, through the removal of inefficient programs; migration to new, often digital media; and improved decision making across all marketing investments.”
