The challenges of omnichannel marketing

Today, omnichannel marketing is vital for organizations aiming for a leading position in the digital ecosystem. Customers expect a fluid experience, regardless of the channel they interact with a brand. This seamless integration of offline and online channels demands a strategic approach, taking into account the complex customer journeys of today.
