2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

For decades Marketing 101 classes have extolled the simple brilliance of the purchase funnel. A repeatable guide that brings consumers to purchase over and over again.

The relationship is not merely transactional, nor do consumers behave in sequential stages. In fact, 78% say brand loyalty and attraction occurs after the purchase. Join Edelman and a master class of CMOs who together will cast a new model – one where purchase is just the beginning.
