Technological changes mean that the role of libraries is now not as obvious or assured as in the past. This means that to survive, they must actively market their products and services to their users and to their funding sources. Librarians tend however to be averse to anything which smells of selling and anyway are usually too busy with 'more important' activities. This is a simple handbook which spells out the critical need for marketing for libraries. More important, it provides a series of easy tools to achieve success, and encourages all librarians to make the necessary time available.
The digital age has transformed the very nature of marketing. Armed with digital devices, consumers are increasingly hanging out on the internet. Cyberspace has changed the way they communicate, and the way they shop and buy. This fluid, de-centralized and multidirectional medium is changing the way brands engage with consumers. At the same time, technology and innovation, coupled with the explosion of business data, has fundamentally altered the manner we collect, process, analyse and disseminate market intelligence. The increased volume, variety and velocity of information enables marketers to respond with much greater speed, to changes in the marketplace. Market intelligence is timelier, less expensive, and more accurate and actionable. Anchored in this age of transformations, Marketing Analytics devotes considerable attention to the way market analytic techniques and market research processes are being refined and re-engineered. The book is tailored to meet the needs of marketing professionals as it focusses on market research methods and analytic techniques used by practitioners for refining marketing strategies, and taking day-to-day business decisions. It is ideal too for business management students who wish to pursue careers in consumer marketing.
