Critical Issues in Marketing
2018 is a critical year for marketing and key issues marketers face that weren’t imagined in 2017 and it’s all about disruption!
Facebook’s data breaches of almost 100 million customers; cyber hacking in Japan which cost a company more than $630 million USD in losses; online fraud which cost online merchants over $58 billion USD in 2017; intellectual property fraud which is estimated at over $600 billion USD; platform dominance – are Facebook, Google and YouTube too big and why they can’t stop consumer fraud on their platforms; and “are ad agencies dying?” since consulting companies and Facebook and Google are working directly with clients and bypassing agencies.
M2 is planning a three-part series in May, June and August to explore these issues in cooperation with Vietnam Marcom and the Vietnam Marketing Association.
M2 – May 8th will feature:
- Customer service and how it impacts corporate asset & brand value
- Database & Privacy issues & the new EU data laws
- Intellectual Property Theft
- Mobile Advertising & Marketing – Who knows if its working?
- Online fraud in digital advertising, KOL marketing & social media
M2 – June will feature:

- Consumer fraud & Identity theft
- Creating relevant content for different market segments
