  • Jay, thanks for your view. I agree this is more relevant for FMCG (I guess we followed the 80/20 budget expenditure rule :-). In B2B there are indeed much more agencies which have recognised that it's about connecting to customers in a relevant and timely manner ... and making money in the process (cf. some of the stuff you talk about at Banner).

    Having said that, many of the agencies that service FMCG brands are also good at spending B2B money. Some of the things they get up to make my few remaining hairs stand up ... but that's a story for another day :-)

    Thanks for the comment.

We can just as well try to grab as much as possible.” Pitch team on an international account If a client thinks a brand is great, but you find out his consumers disagree, you’d only tell him if you’d get more business out it. Otherwise, best to leave these things untouched. Major agency creative director instructing a recent recruit over lunch Authenticity Gap 4: Occasionally Questionable Motivations FUTURELAB
