Members will benefit from new competitive brand intelligence data and actionable insights for creative, media, and brand marketing executives

The Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council today announced an expanded marketing alliance with BrandTotal, the leading brand intelligence platform, to showcase the power of accelerated market insight gathering. BrandTotal delivers actionable, real-time consumer insights, paired with competitive social advertising intelligence so that established brands, challenger brands, and their agencies can transform and optimize their marketing campaigns benchmarked against their competition.

The alliance with BrandTotal will leverage the proprietary insights, analytics, and strategic POV of BrandTotal via exclusive brand intelligence data, global social industry trends, industry research reports, and other content to be promoted to CMOs and brand marketing leaders.

“BrandTotal is excited to share its unique data and research generated at the intersection of consumer behavior, brand digital and social strategy, and competitive advertising with the global members of the CMO Council,” said Noam Harel, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, BrandTotal. “We illuminate brands’ digital paths -- and those of their competitors -- so Fortune 500 and DTC challenger brands alike can learn why and how consumers engage in their competitive category and also to benchmark their digital and social brand and creative performance.”

Through this partnership, CMO Council members will have numerous opportunities to understand the transformation of traditional marketing insight practices and the potential applications for their brands to leverage social competitive intelligence solutions to further brand marketing performance and measurability.
