The scientists versus the artists.

September 18, 2015 by Joe Amaral, VP & Creative Director

The digital world is being driven by the need to have accurate data to help create the intended impressions and views. Combine this with highly scientific metrics and digital becomes less of a gamble and more of a viable channel for brand communications.

I believe it was Lee Clow who observed that in the early days of television, it was the media "scientists" who determined much of what was considered valuable activity. But it wasn't until the artists got hold of television that the true persuasive power was unlocked. I see some parallels with digital today.

Maybe it will be the artists who explore and take risks that will truly determine what can be achieved in digital. Ultimately, it will be a collaboration of artists and scientists that will push digital to what it can truly be.

Dear Client, Instagram doesn’t have to suck.

Many clients and businesses see Instagram as a “black hole” for advertising dollars. When they don’t quickly see sales, they place the blame upon the medium – before they begin to understand it. June 29, 2016 by Adam McDade, Copywriter

New Media Really Loves PR

Think about the old-school public relations agent pitching stories to get ink on their clients’ latest and greatest. With the right connections, a reasonable story and a nudge-nudge-wink-wink that advertising purchasing doesn’t impact positive editorial coverage, that old school agent might have secured a whole lot of ink.

Welcome to our community

We’ve recently been doing some candidate interviewing and hiring for our client services team. And along the way, we’ve met some interesting, talented and quite experienced marketing agency pros. Some we liked and some we really liked. Some liked us back, some didn’t and some others we had a mutual dislike. Standard hiring stuff, really. January 4, 2016 by Stuart Lewis, President & CEO

VW used one of the most trusted marketing tactics we know: lying.

Many trusted brands market their product or service to the public knowing that it may not be great or even, it some cases, may be detrimental. And despite this, they still stay trusted brands. I once sold a pet food that veterinarians recommend you don't feed your pets. But it was cheap and it wouldn't actually kill Fido. September 30, 2015 by Joe Amaral, VP & Creative Director
