Advertising mascots are a tricky thing. Some of them are quickly forgotten, destined to become relics of the distant past, while others are beloved by the public and stay around in one form or another for generations.

Who are your real brand friends? How to communicate with customers during a crisis

Article | April 2, 2020

Note to readers: for the rest of this article, just substitute the word “brand” every time you read “friend.” I was honestly shocked that I had so many friends to start with, and that so many I hadn’t heard from in forever still had my contact details (even if all they had was my email address, and I can’t think of a less effective method of getting my attention).

Vermont’s senior U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders today ended his campaign for the presidency, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden as the presumptive Democratic Party nominee set to take on President Trump. Biden swept Florida, Illinois and Arizona in Tuesday's primary voting. According to the latest Ad Age Campaign Ad Scorecard analysis, led by Ad Age Datacenter Director of Data Management Kevin Brown in partnership with Kantar/CMAG, Sanders spent just over $76 million on advertising in pursuit of the presidency from the start of his campaign through April 7, including advance spending—although Sanders and Biden had both drastically curtailed ad spending in recent weeks as the coronavirus pandemic escalated. Sanders’ spending, as tracked by Ad Age Datacenter, includes TV, radio, cable and digital across Facebook and Google properties.

The most common question I’ve been asked by brands in the past two weeks is: “Should we continue to invest in advertising during the coronavirus outbreak, when so many people are isolated?” Marketing Week’s own figures show that many marketers are delaying their campaigns during this time. The truth is, none of us really knows the answer, but I can’t help but feel that for consumer brands this is the time to show that your brand matters.
