Why nerds will rule the world, conquering advertising first

16,286 views

Published on

The AdNerds strongly believe emerging media have changed advertising forever. Advertising is no longer the kingdom of small-time artists putting their finger on a cute idea. Advertising now belongs to people in the know, earning the engagement of consumers with creative solutions which are relevant and hence valuable.

This in our view cannot be done using analogue media. This can only be achieved with digits. And that is exactly why nerds will rule the advertising world.

Discover how nerds are already breaking new ground with online campaigns which are pulverizing objectives. Thanks to ideas which are extremely simple yet technologically daring. Not to mention highly tantalizing.

As a nerd you will be sitting behind your screens with a smile, letting the thought dawn on you that you might well be the advertising world's next ruler.
