Brian Solis wrote a guest article on customer experience for the “Improving Customer Experience in Banking” report which shares the results of a global survey done to determine the CX maturity of banks and credit unions. The findings show that most organizations are not prepared for the future of increased consumer expectations.
Brian Solis analyzed the data and outlined what’s working with current influencer marketing practices, what’s failing, and, most importantly, predicted their evolution. The result is the report “Influence 2.0: The Future of Influencer Marketing.”
Each point of contact with your company is an occasion to disseminate an information about you. All that your company produces, a service, an object, an experience, an e-mail, a publicity, a video, a guide, a conversation, is a content to broadcast.
It is what Brian Solis tells us with “the audience of your audience”
“As a digital society, we are ushering in an era where everyday people form a global network of self-empowered social intermediaries that accelerate and proliferate the reach and effect of information and experiences.”
TopRank Marketing and Traackr teamed with Brian Solis of Altimeter to produce “Influence 2.0: The Future of Influencer Marketing.”
“Influence 2.0 is an incredible opportunity for marketers to think differently about customer experience to fast track the inevitable changes that digital business presents,” said Solis in a press release. “Marketers must reimagine their role as a central driver of organizational change, output and impact by connecting with customers in more genuine and useful ways and on channels they trust and value.”

“Influence 2.0 is an incredible opportunity for marketers to think differently about customer experience to fast track the inevitable changes that digital business presents,” said Brian Solis, Principal Analyst at Altimeter. “Marketers must reimagine their role as a central driver of organizational change, output, and impact by connecting with customers in more genuine and useful ways and on channels they trust and value.”
Solis states that harnessing influence requires a more human approach with empathy and customer-centricity instrumental in taking influence to the next level. He pins success on reassessing the value chain around creating value within the relationships between influencers and their communities.
Brian Solis ranked in the top 15 of influencers talking about the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on Twitter.
Solis says empathy is one of the key ingredients in the future of business relationships with users, and as with any form of progress, change starts with accepting the reality of the problem at hand. “That takes sincere and transparent communication in the moment of truth and following it,” he says. “Companies must also get to the root of the problem to solve it and publicize the effort and results.”
In their research report, “The 2016 State of Digital Transformation”, Brian Solis and Jaimy Szymanski define digital transformation as the realignment of, or new investment in technology, business models, and processes to drive new value for customers and employees to effectively compete in an ever-changing digital economy.

Email marketing is more important than ever, according to marketing guru Brian Solis, who points out that even in a world dominated by social media, 77% of consumers prefer to receive permission-based marketing communications via email . “The answer isn’t to send more emails. The answer is to know who you are talking to, what’s important to them and how you could capture their attention and do something with it,” says Solis.
