The future of marketing and luxury branding
Marketing is becoming increasingly complex, shaped by emerging technologies, methods and practices. As the face of the digital landscape continues to change, so do the marketing practices of customer behaviour, data analytics, brand management, communication methods, platforms and user experiences, leading to a new suite of digital competencies. The luxury industry has undergone major changes over the past two decades. Varying economic trends, rapid digital transformation and evolving consumer preferences are creating a new competitive landscape, which is challenging the traditional corporate strategies.
