6 Ways To Use Nostalgia In Marketing

While nostalgia marketing isn’t new, it is particularly relevant today at a time when people feel increasingly lonely on one hand and distrust brands and corporations on the other. Although nostalgia is not for every brand. In some cases, nostalgia can marginalize your brand by emphasizing that it is out of touch and is no longer relevant to consumers. Radio Shack initially scored big with its 2014 Super Bowl ad, featuring icons from the 1980s such as wrestler Hulk Hogan, the iconic DeLorean ...

The Marais

Friends of my granddaughter are staying in a hotel in the Marais so we joined them there and walked around. We went to the beautiful Place des Vosges. This door leads to the garden behind the Hotel de Sully. Inside the door. There is a stained glass window frame there that I like to put people behind for photos. The very nice bar in a luxurious hotel. Grafitti on Rue des Rosiers. Just liked this green on the sidewalk.

Despite the possible merits of those cultural traits, the latter now appears to be the case, with Tokyo’s governor requesting a soft lockdown at a press confer...
