Some folks believe that marketing fundamentals and the rules derived from the traditional marketing era no longer apply in the digital world.  However, it is important to remember that the average Chief Marketing Officer's job has a median shelf life of twenty-three (23) months. 

While there are a number of reasons for this median job shelf life anomaly,  (actually considered somewhat of an improvement by some industry insiders) I would like to start at with the following reasons at the outset, (A) The idea that everybody is a marketer cannibalizes the industry, (B) A lack of applying marketing fundamentals across all channels, (C) Disjointed Marketing Collateral, Limited Personalization, and (D) More CMO challenges in the new accountability environment.  While these reasons are just the tip of the iceberg, it's a good starting point.
