Idea-led marketing: Bringing creativity back to the forefront

Data has been seen as the key to unlocking success in today’s digital business landscape. Marketers are leveraging consumer data to drive experiences and engagement, but have they become over-reliant? Initiatives are becoming more personalised, targeted, and seamless, but without the creativity that was once the driving force, marketers will be hard-pressed to stand out.

Often, marketers can get lost in the numbers and lose sight of the creative aspect. While data and technology are necessary for getting campaigns in front of the right people and for tracking success, ideas and stories must be what spearheads these initiatives. 

  • How has marketing evolved in an increasingly data-driven business landscape? How have marketers adapted?
  • How can marketers balance the use of data with traditional ideation and marketing? What are the challenges?
  • What role does technology and data play in marketing moving forward?
