Abstract

This paper provides a literature-based examination of the four stages of marketing’s digital journey to date and the key milestones or points of interest along the way. In reflecting on the path taken, intriguing insights emerge which pose ongoing challenges for businesses and for the marketing discipline. Arguably failure to heed the resulting warnings will impede marketing’s ability to harness the benefits of digital and to effectively counteract the associated negative consequences of a digitally-enabled marketplace. The implications of marketing’s digital journey are explored here along with their most pressing consequences.
