Your Consumers Are Looking at Where Your Ads Live

More nights last spring than I'd like to admit, I found myself doomscrolling: mindlessly thumbing through my feeds full of scary statistics, grim updates and fear-inducing ads. It was exhausting, and did nothing to help my mounting anxiety. Turns out, it's not helping brands, either. Anger and divisiveness may encourage people to scroll--and troll--but it...

The end of applause

The pandemic has killed clapping. In the abstract, applause is stupid: You hit yourself, but only when in the company of others hitting themselves, to show approval. The end of applause occurred to me as I watched recent events: Apple’s latest product announcement sans clapping geeks and sycophants (revealing its true aesthetic as just another infomercial); the US Open with tepid, sitcom-like clap-tracks where cheers would have been; the Democrats’ intimate and audience-free YouTube c...

And to call it a playbook limits its true purpose of enabling brand custodians to evolve the brand to fit purposefully into the world of its consumers even as their values shift. Perhaps the word compass is more fitting. A decade ago, most CPG marketers followed...

In the late 1950s, 60% of American children suffered nightmares about it. Hollywood didn't help. During the 1950s, science fiction crossed to the dark side....

According to business surveys, there are currently 5 genera...
