Advertising professionals are chasing return on investment (ROI) which is a somewhat flawed exercise as they must focus more on delivering customer experiences and building loyalty, a new report said on Wednesday.

On the other hand, said Adobe’s “2019 Digital Trends Advertising in Focus” report, two-thirds (64 per cent) of marketers stated that content and experience management is a top priority — which falls to less than half of advertisers — as they look to build loyalty and lasting customer relationships.

“Brands today are required to evoke an emotional connect with their customers while combining it with data-driven marketing in order to tailor experiences that drive value and render a significant competitive advantage,” Sunder Madakshira, Head, Marketing, Adobe India said in a statement.

“Only the businesses who succeed in addressing these evolved requirements of today’s digitally empowered customer across will win in this Customer Experience era,” he added.

For advertising professionals, the biggest priority for almost half of respondents (46 per cent) is to demonstrate Return on Investment (ROI) to the rest of the business.

This is followed by better audience targeting and segmentation (42 per cent) and improving channel efficiency (40 per cent).

“Nearly a quarter (23 per cent) stated that the most exciting opportunity for 2019 was data-driven marketing that focuses on the individual first,” said the study.

“Creativity and metrics are connected. We need to focus much more on quality and relevance — those are two key words for me this year,” said Mike Klinkhammer, Director of Advertising Sales EU, eBay. (IANS)

K'taka Hijab Row Triggers Debate.

By M.K. Ashoka

The issue of wearing a hijab (head covering worn in public by Muslim women) to the colleges along with the uniform has sparked a debate in Karnataka over religious practices impacting the education system in the state. The matter has also snowballed into a controversy on whether the hijab could be considered as part of the uniform. The ruling BJP is deliberating on whether to take a call on allowing hijab as part of the uniform of college students. State Education Minister B.C. Nagesh, while opposing the wearing of hijab to classrooms, has said that a decision would be taken on the issue soon by the government.

The experts as well as students are divided over the issue. Those who are in favour state that the dress code in classrooms should not indicate faith or religion as it creates barriers between students as well as teachers. Those who support the wearing of hijab say that hijab should be treated as a scarf. Hijab is black in colour and it can't be a religious symbol as Islam is identified with the green colour. The hijab should be treated as a symbol of chastity, they maintain.

The denial of permission to six girls in the Government Girls' Pre University College in the communally sensitive district of Udupi in the state has created a controversy. Nagesh dubbed it as a political move and questioned whether centres of learning should become religious centres. Meanwhile, the girl students have decided to continue their protest until they are allowed to attend classes wearing hijab.
