Brands need to stop talking and start doing

WILL WORSDELL | April 9, 2020

It’s fair to say that 'less talk, more do' is sound advice at the best of times, but it is particularly prescient for brands at the current time with the Covid-19 at it's peak. People aren’t interested in good wishes, they need actions and tangible help. Brands would be well advised to shut up at the moment. Before this piece goes any further there are two important things to acknowledge; the first is that marketing is of miniscule importance at the moment, and of no importance compared to the people on the frontline fighting, and dealing with, the coronavirus. Everything is relative, and for those people that do work in marketing and those that rely on its success for millions of businesses and livelihoods, it is worth exploring for improvement.

How Innovation and Ads Can Save Your Business during COVID-19

Article | March 31, 2020

With each passing day, the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak is having a growing impact on the global economy. While some businesses are lucky enough to be getting a huge surge in sales, many are struggling to bring in revenue or must adhere to shelter-in-place orders requiring them to shut down production. In these situations, your first instinct will be to preserve all cash flow and stop all unnecessary spending. But is digital advertising unnecessary spend? I would argue it’s very necessary, even if at a reduced budget. Ecommerce in the sense of selling any service or product online is critical right now for our entire economy. And with more than 66% of the U.S. population under stay-at-home orders, according to CNN, there are a lot of people sitting at home ready to buy. It might not be at the same volume that brands are accustomed to, but there is still plenty of opportunity, even if your production has stopped.

From marketing and advertising blend to internet marketing impact modeling

Article | March 16, 2020

With the stop of cookie-centered person journey tracking looming on the horizon, desire in marketing and advertising idea and techniques from the pre-attribution era is on the rise all over again. This is lousy information for the several ad tech vendors who count on cookie-based knowledge, but excellent information for the advertising business. Just after ten several years of regular hoopla, attribution modelling, together with multi-contact attribution, has hardly ever proven to be the guaranteed-hearth way of raising internet marketing success it promised to be. It is this significantly common realization that received the stone rolling in the very first location. Tightening GDPR cookie consent restrictions and Google’s announcement of programs to eliminate third-social gathering cookies by 2020 are only accelerating their drop. A couple months back, Adidas said that its attribution types tended to generate erroneous results these as suggesting that functionality advertising and marketing is the theory driver of e-commerce gross sales. Through econometrics, Adidas ultimately learned that the position of video and other brand name-centered routines had been vastly underestimated.

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). Nevertheless, friends started coming out of the woodwork to “touch base,” as all of us went into work-from-home isolation. At last count, over 350 friends had contacted me- and after seeing what they all had to say, I’ve noticed that there are basically three types of friend in a crisis.
