Consumers want access to all products and services all the time. While shoppers certainly appreciate 24×7 access to products, it turns out they exhibit specific buying tendencies based on time of day and time of year.
Marketers are feeling better about the economy now than they have at any point during the past 4 years. That’s the news from the latest CMO Survey spearheaded by Dr. Christine Moorman and carried out with sponsorship from Duke’s Fuqua School of Businesses and the American Marketing Association. This survey is particularly valuable as it has tracked trends in marketer attitudes since 2008. Dr. Moorman and her colleagues regularly contact about 4,400 top marketers and obtain between a 9% and 10% response rate which delivers a nice snapshot of the business world.
