The CMO Council, in partnership with Hux by Deloitte Digital, is undertaking research into the forces shaping the “Customer Economics” imperative. The program will audit and assess the degree to which marketers view and value the concept of “Customer Economics” as a way to have a richer understanding of the customer.

Specifically, the CMO Council will look at digital marketing’s impact on long-term customer value creation. Research will cover important requirements, such as humanizing connections and understanding emotive drivers, frictionless eCommerce and responsive aftermarket support, and unifying data for a 360-degree customer view.

The goal is to shine a light on marketing’s need to rethink and re-evaluate customer engagement strategies, marketing processes and customer data utilization capabilities from lead to loyalty.


"Customer Economics” is an urgent area of strategic focus and attention for savvy marketers faced with global turbulence that has created severe consumer anxiety, behavioral change, spend reduction and lifestyle upheaval. Now, more than ever, it is essential to analyze the costs, value and returns associated with acquiring critical customer constituencies.

Much of the “Customer Economics” discussion boils down to cost-effective actions for mining data-driven customer insights, driving initiatives that convert customers, and executing on requirements for creating long-term customer relationships.
