CLEVELAND, March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Did you know that the CMO title is a modern invention within the last 15 years? Did you know that buyers suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out)?  Did you know that marketing measurement will be based on “share of experience” rather than “share of wallet”?  Do you even know what you REALLY do as a marketer?

In Experiences: The 7th Era of Marketing (Content Marketing Institute), a new book just released today, world-renowned marketing experts Robert Rose and Carla Johnson synthesized five years of research with global brands to outline the need and path for marketers to become the driving force behind business innovation.  The book outlines the “why” and “how” of transforming business in a new era led by storytellers and powered by remarkable, content-driven, customer experiences.

“Our ability to connect with customers is harder than ever.  Carla and Robert show why marketing is no longer ‘business as usual,’ and it’s time that marketing took a broader and more strategic role in leading the charge,” says Kathy Button Bell, Chief Marketing Officer, Emerson.

In Experiences: The 7th Era of Marketing, you’ll get a step-by-step framework for content creation within your business, including how to roll it out, how to communicate it, how to develop a measurement plan and much more. You’ll walk away armed with practical how-to strategies on building a process that is truly adaptable and scalable to your business.

“For top-performing brands, content-driven experiences have proven to be an extraordinarily powerful new way for marketers to create value for business,” said Robert Rose, co-author and Chief Strategy Officer for the Content Marketing Institute. “The idea of providing education, delight and general usefulness provides a new way to enrich interactions with customers at every stage of the buying journey.”

“The new goal of marketing isn’t just to create a customer, but rather evolve them across the entirety of the relationship,” adds Carla Johnson, co-author and president of Type A Communications. “The key to doing this is to shift away from talking about products and services and into creating customer-centric experiences. Content-driven experiences that are uniquely different are what create value for the customer.”

Experiences: The 7th Era of Marketing is now on sale!
