Literature Review: Digital Marketing problem for Sales

This “Ten Problems for Sales in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. digital technology,
  2. conscious consumer,
  3. mobile payments,
  4. agritech,
  5. retail experience,
  6. popular products,
  7. sustainable fashion,
  8. plant-based diet,
  9. digital marketing,
  10. b2c platforms.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

Cyber-attacks fall into two major categories: breaches of data security and sabotage. Significant challenges exist from negative electronic word-of-mouth as well as intrusive and irritating online brand presence. B2B marketing has its own characteristics: its environment is quite specific and more complex, radically different from mass consumption. Two marketing capabilities gaps are identified: a practice gap and a knowledge gap.
