  2. 2. THIS IS A SAMPLING SPORT* Many of the ideas in this presentation are remixed from other great thinkers, pontificators, and assassins of marketing to define a new “Active” way of thinking about branding.Public Enemy Reference Y’all DI Y
  3. 3. THE ADVERTISING INDUSTRY NEEDS A KICK IN THE ASSIf we don’t evolve we will become doomed just like the music industry. DI Y
  4. 4. WE’RE BECOMING IRRELEVANTMuch like record labels, agencies haven’t evolved enough and are too slow to react to our clients needs. Today it seems like every project in the pipeline is an exercise in smaller, cheaper, and faster. We need to be nimble. We need to be quick. DI Y
  5. 5. HIGHWAY ROBBERY Over the past 20 years the music industry has abused fans in the U.S withboth unnecessarily high CD prices and obscenely high concert ticket prices. There is no doubt that technology has cheapened the creative processimmensely, and as advertisers we need to revolutionize what the core of our business is. ( Hint... Ideas are the only real capital ) DI Y
  6. 6. WE’VE STOPPED DOING OUR JOB Record label executives hired hipsters instead of real A&R agents. Theybecame more interested in keeping their jobs and playing it safe than finding original talent to nurture and promote over the long haul. The ad world is swimming with “merchants of cool” who market to themselves instead of thinking about what the consumer wants or needs. DI Y
  7. 7. JAMMING ECONO Technological developments have made it possible for artists to circumventprofessional studios and create high-quality works themselves. Developments have given artists of all ages and abilities from across the globe, theopportunity to make their own films, records, or other content, and distribute it over the web. Guess what? The same is true for what we do. DI Y
  8. 8. KILL THE “LET’S MAKE NOVEMBER RAIN” MENTALITY* Thinking big is great, but the days of champagne wishes and caviar dreams are over. Google made the most popular Superbowl commercial and it cost little to nothing to make.* Thats a Guns n Roses reference DI Y

  13. 13. In order to survive in the digital world as advertisers we need to approach our work with this same attitude. DI Y
  14. 14. A “JUST GET IN THE VAN” STYLE OF ADVERTISINGHard-Core and Punk bands in the eighties used to just get in their van and tourplaying any house or space that wanted to hear their message. The internet isso fragmented, that as advertisers we need to actively bring our beliefs directly into consumers living rooms. DI Y
  15. 15. WE NEED TO STOP THINKINGABOUT 360 DEGREE BRANDING and think about 365 days a year marketing. DI Y
  16. 16. THE FIRST QUESTION EVERYDAY SHOULD BEWhat can I do to make my brand famous on the internet today? DI Y
  17. 17. ACTING THEN MEASURING HAS BEEN REPLACED BY LISTENING THEN RESPONDINGAgencies should be like day traders in “Social Emotion” tracking what consumers are saying online, and reacting to it in real time. DI Y
  18. 18. THE CONSUMER HAS CHANGED "People consume content in order to create it." DI Y
  19. 19. BRANDS NEED TO MAKE STUFF CONSTANTLY Creating content at scale requires becoming comfortable discussing a range of topics. DI Y
  20. 20. OLD AGENCY: MAKE THE CLIENT HAPPYFUTURE AGENCY: MAKE THE CONSUMER HAPPY To the public all advertising is spam. People like what interests them, and sometimes it’s an ad. DI Y

  34. 34. WE FORMED A BRAND* New time constraints and technology have made it necessary to re-think the old creative equation. DIY teams are makers involving a Developer, Art Director, Copywriter, & Digital Strategist.

  39. 39. BRAND WANTEDDIY Advertising is definitely not right for every type of client. If the first thing youdo when approving a concept from an agency is send it to your legal team it’s probably a sign you’re not ready to rock. DI Y
  40. 40. “WINNING” AT THE INTERNETA renegade spirit is needed to make it in this post digital world. A place where you are only as relevant as your last tweet, stunt, or update. One day it’s aCharlie Sheen the next day it’s Radiohead releasing a record. The attention and lifespan of the internet is fleeting at best. It’s an arm’s race of great ideas daily to win on the web. DIY is ready for the challenge. DI Y
