When Marketers Start Getting Real, Fame Is Not Currency, and More
Kiss & Tell Podcast #013: It’s not all roses! 2-second ads; fame is not currency; there’s too much content, and all the other real-deal things we are worried about heading into 2018.
It’s post-Advertising Week. By acknowledging the challenges facing agencies and marketers, we can get to solving them. Including:
— What happens when P&G marketing chief Marc Pritchard throws down the gauntlet on brand safety, transparency and fraud.
— Check out this still-relevant classic. Positioning: The Battle for your Mind.
— Who is going to watch all this digital content?
— 6-second ads are so yesterday; now it’s about 2-second ads.
— Lou Paskalis, senior vice president of media and investment for Bank of America, via the Wall Street Journal:
“As an advertiser, I must tell you ads are dead. The future is about things people want, not things they have to endure.”
— Start-up marketers on Facebook: build a brand or build a profit? Is brand notoriety enough? New Coke, Apple Newton, Pets.com are lessons to learn.
