  • Travel supplement: A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step
    Attempting to unpack the whole landscape is like opening Pandora's Box. As an industry we are (or should be) focused on customer journeys, and nowhere is this more literal than in travel. If we think about gain-points and pain-points, the latter is a great opportunity to consider travel anxiety and areas that your brands should be tuning into to add the most value to your customer experience. These key moments along the way can deliver or destroy the enjoyment of moving between cities, countries and continents. What traveller worries are you placating, and what new concerns might emerge as we move ... read more

  • Brand advertising is broken. Here’s why.
    It’s one of the most famous quotes in advertising history. Over a hundred years ago, department store mogul John Wanamaker stated: “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted, I just don’t know which half.” The Drum, in partnership with Wistia, has surveyed 235 people working in advertising (either for brands or agencies) to find out if this statement still rings true today. Has the promise of more attributable, efficient advertising spend actually been realized? Or are most of us still spending with care and abandon, hoping for success? Marketers are spending more and more on digital advertising in ... read more

  • Why retail needs to stop trying to create culture: dragons versus steak bakes
    2011. A big year. The year that bin Laden and Gaddafi were both killed. The year that Kate and Wills tied the knot. And the year that John Lewis cemented their place as purveyors of an annual festive advertising treat with ‘The Long Wait’. The formula was set. A big track, a heart-string-tugging twist, high production values - all neatly wrapped up in a bow around the core insight of the power of giving. Since that endearing small boy, we’ve had snowmen, bears and hares, monsters, dogs and even a man on the moon. This year’s offering faithfully followed the ... read more

  • Uncertainty is the new digital advertising reality
    People don't like living in uncertainty. They want to know for sure, no matter where the answer comes from. Even Einstein once rejected the emerging quantum theories in the 1920s with his famous God does not play dice, feeling uncomfortable with hard science becoming a probabilistic, uncertain discipline. I don’t know if God plays dice, but Google sure does and whether you like or not, conversion estimates and reach extrapolations are here to stay. In the past few weeks, they have announced the launch of a new machine-learning powered feature to manage ad frequency across Google Ad Manager publishers. It ... read more
