  • Logging In: Another Type of Climate Change in OMMA Magazine on 05/21/2008

    In case you haven't noticed, the economic climate has been getting a good deal chillier lately. Inevitably, this is making for a much more cautious marketing community, with brands contemplating an uncertain future and beginning to plan on reducing advertising and marketing costs. If you are in traditional media, this does not bode well, but conventional wisdom holds that if you are in digital media, you will be somewhat recession-resistant. Of course, some traditional channels will do okay and some digital channels will have problems. But we are already seeing a general belt-tightening accelerate the shift of budgets from traditional media to digital. The recent GM decision to move half its marketing dollars to digital and direct is just the beginning.

  • Logging In: The Proverbial Pachyderm Problem in OMMA Magazine on 04/02/2008

    Forget the elephant in the room, there is a rather large one sitting in the middle of Madison Avenue. Interactive, the Internet, broadband, mobile - call it what you will, the digital behemoth is in the process of wreaking havoc on the traditional agency models we have known for 50 years or more. The facts are simple. The Internet, in many and ever-evolving forms, has already profoundly changed the way people discover, understand, select and interact.

  • Simplicity Eats Complexity For Lunch by Mark McLaughlin (MAD on 06/01/2014)

    Great post and right on the money. This is a case of the pendulum swinging. The temptation of the bean counters to reduce the work of agencies, digital or otherwise, to mechanistic measurables has been too tempting. Marketing is now treated as a science and while many hide behind the complexity, a great deal of creativity and inspiration is sidelined in the process. In my firm we work hard to reduce the complexity to the client and more importantly to the consumer. But the pendulum swings anyway, while we wait impatiently for its inevitable return.

  • Marketers Struggle With Tracking Customers Cross-Platform by Gavin O'Malley (Online Media Daily on 09/06/2013)

    This is the heart of the issue. All these channels are not tied together at the individual level. Marketing automation and dashboards help but are still incomplete. Noboby's licked this yet although there are pieces of it and we still have to wire it together with gum to get a hazy picture. At it's core this needs a CRM system that has sales and interaction history into which we could feed all this other data from across the lifecycle.
