Marketing is a multichannel effort thatincludes a wide range of touch points. The touch points range from websites and email promotions to traditional printadvertising, postal mail, and broadcast, and direct sales by phoneand in-person sales teams. But too often, each channel worksindependently, accountable to its own objectives, unaware of theefforts and results made within other marketing channels.
