Marketing 4.0: Moving from Traditional to Digital is the much-needed handbook for next-generation marketing. Written by the world’s leading marketing authorities, this book helps you navigate the increasingly connected world and changing consumer landscape to reach more customers, more effectively. Today’s customers have less time and attention to devote to your brand―and they are surrounded by alternatives every step of the way. You need to stand up, get their attention, and deliver the message they want to hear. This book examines the marketplace’s shifting power dynamics, the paradoxes wrought by connectivity, and the increasing sub-culture splintering that will shape tomorrow’s consumer; this foundation shows why Marketing 4.0 is becoming imperative for productivity, and this book shows you how to apply it to your brand today.

Marketing 4.0 takes advantage of the shifting consumer mood to reach more customers and engage them more fully than ever before. Exploit the changes that are tripping up traditional approaches, and make them an integral part of your methodology. This book gives you the world-class insight you need to make it happen.

  • Discover the new rules of marketing
  • Stand out and create WOW moments
  • Build a loyal and vocal customer base
  • Learn who will shape the future of customer choice

Every few years brings a “new” marketing movement, but experienced marketers know that this time its different; it’s not just the rules that have changed, it’s the customers themselves. Marketing 4.0 provides a solid framework based on a real-world vision of the consumer as they are today, and as they will be tomorrow. Marketing 4.0 gives you the edge you need to reach them more effectively than ever before.


For the past six years, marketers whom we met around the world have been asking for a sequel to Marketing 3.0. Considering the dynamics of marketing, many would expect Marketing 4.0 to be in the pipeline.

In Marketing 3.0, we talked about the major shift from product driven marketing (1.0) to customer-centric marketing (2.0), and ultimately to human-centric marketing (3.0). In Marketing 3.0, we observed customers transforming into whole human beings with minds, hearts, and spirits. Therefore, we argued that the future of marketing lies in creating products, services, and company cultures that embrace and reflect human values. Since the book was published in 2010, many marketers have been adopting the principles of Marketing 3.0. The book was so universally accepted that it has been translated into 24 languages besides English globally.

A year after the book was published, we built the Museum of Marketing 3.0 in Ubud, Bali. The museum was built with the kind support of the three princes of Ubud: Tjokorda Gde Putra Sukawati, Tjokorda Gde Oka Sukawati, and Tjokorda Gde Raka Sukawati. Ubud, with its aura of spirituality, is indeed the perfect place for the first marketing museum of its kind. In the museum, we have been curating inspiring cases of marketers, companies, and marketing campaigns that embrace the human spirit. The contents are organized in a modern multiscreen setup. In recent years, the museum has been upgraded with advanced technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality.

Indeed, a lot has happened since we wrote Marketing 3.0, especially in terms of technological advancements. The technologies we are seeing today are not new. But they have been converging in recent years, and the collective impact of that convergence has greatly affected marketing practices around the world. New trends are emerging from this: the sharingeconomy, the noweconomy, omnichannel integration, content marketing, social CRM, and many other things. We believe that the technology convergence will ultimately lead to the convergence between digital marketing and traditional marketing. In a high-tech world, people long for high touch. The more social we are, the more we want things that are made just for us. Backed by big-data analytics, products become more personalized and services become more personal. In the digital economy, the key is to leverage these paradoxes.

In this transitional era, a new marketing approach is required. Thus, we introduce Marketing 4.0 as the natural outgrowth of Marketing 3.0. The major premise of this book is that marketing should adapt to the changing nature of customer paths in the digital economy. The role of marketers is to guide customers throughout their journey from awareness and ultimately to advocacy.

The first part of the book is the result of our observation of the world we are living in. We start by embracing the three power shifts that are shaping our world. We move further by exploring how connectivity has fundamentally changed human lives. Moreover, we take a deeper look into the major digital subcultures of youth, women, and netizens that will serve as foundations for a completely new breed of customer.

The second and core part of the book discusses how marketers can boost productivity by understanding customer paths in the digital era. It introduces a new set of marketing metrics and a whole new way of looking at our marketing practices. We will also dive deep into several key industries and learn how to implement the ideas of Marketing 4.0 in those industries.

Finally, the third part describes in detail the major tactics of Marketing 4.0. We start with human-centric marketing, which aims to humanize brands with humanlike attributes. We then explore content marketing in greater detail in order to create customer conversations.

Moreover, we also describe how marketers can implement omnichannel marketing for higher sales. Finally, we dig into the concept of customer engagement in the digital era.

In essence, Marketing 4.0 describes a deepening and a broadening of human-centric marketing to cover every aspect of the customers journey. We are hopeful that you will find insights and inspirations from this book and join us in redefining marketing in the years to come.
