The latest Team Lewis Marketing Engagement Index tracks the top 300 companies from the Forbes Global 2000 list to monitor their marketing tactics.
The index found that 40% of websites analysed did not include a corporate values statement, and around one in five did not reference current cultural issues – both signs of strong brand purpose. Additionally, only 15% of websites were found to comply with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) accessibility requirements.
Around 94% of companies lacked any website personalisation tools, with only companies using such capabilities being B2C organisations. Chatbots were present in only 15% of websites analysed. While 22% of companies failed to link to brand social channels, 94% of CEOs were not active on social media.
The index further found that 60% of companies had not fully disclosed data practices on their websites. Additionally, IBM, American Express and Dell Technologies were the best performing companies globally.
