  • The brave new world of marketing…  From days of old…  In a traditional marketing era, marketers built brands largely based on running paid advertising to generate awareness, interest, desire, and hopefully action. In this worldview, consumers were not part of the media equation.  Today, brand KPIs mostly still follow this old model…survey- based, slow, and continuing to reinforce a TV-first marketing culture.  …to days of bold  In a digital, social, and mobile world consumers have become a significant part of the media process:  Interacting via second screens  Sharing: endorse or dissuade friends regarding branded content and their feelings about a given brand  Leaning-forward as they search, pull information, and seek opinions/ideas. For example, Google says there are 8 BILLION searches in the US each month that are food recipe related.  Joining brand communities via Facebook, Twitter, signing up for e- mails, and downloading branded apps.  And now, all of these actions can take place right at point of purchase and on the street corner via smart phones  Use smartphones for just in time, shopper decision making, right at point of purchase
  • However, narrative without measurement strategies, can lead marketers to some really wrong conclusions Myth: A post-apocalyptic media world (is coming) substantially devoid of brand advertising as we have long known it. Bob Garfield, 2007 Mythbusting: Advertising revenues continue to grow in the US and globally. Advertising is part of every media touchpoint. Myth: The ROI of social media is that your brand will still be in business in five years. Eric Qualman, Socialnomics Mythbusting: Conversations are important sources of insights that inform marketing actions. However, for most brands, paid media and shopper marketing still have a greater demonstrated impact on sales. Myth: Linear TV viewing is dying, being replaced by DVRs, Tablets, video on demand and Netflix. Forrester has been predicting the death of linear TV since 1999. Mythbusting: TV viewing is stable and linear TV still accounts for about 90% of time. Tablets and smartphones are strengthening the TV experience and cannibalizing laptop use, not TV. Myth: Why would anyone still have a website when then can have 10 times as many relationships via their Facebook page? Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook Mythbusting: Facebook has impact but search and owned media are often a more powerful combination for driving shopper action and 1-1 marketing Commonly heard industry beliefs: Rubinson assignments have found: Mobile is changing the way we live and the way marketers need to think about media. Yes, this one IS true! But…nearly 70% of mobile use isn’t mobile…it is at home!
