It is hard to find an organization of any kind anymore that doesn't have multiple revenue streams. Within these streams are usually multiple segments, almost all of which have some sort of basic marketing problem to solve. (You've articulated these in the past - FIND new prospects, GET them converted, KEEP them loyal, and GROW what they spend with you.) We're finding that getting clear on this picture helps enormously with the sale of cross-media solutions. When you've done the homework the profile of the target audience is much clearer, making the proposed solution easier to derive and create. It seems to me that speaking this language is critical in succeeding with the next generation CMO.

Your thoughts? Am I on target here?
