How Technology has changed product placement

How Technology has changed product placement | www.eklectic.in

With recent advances, companies can now use algorithms to digitally serve you unique product placements based on where you live, your age or your salary. It’s a creepy concept, but it could change advertising forever.

As Swedish DJ Avicii nonchalantly wanders into Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena, the music video of his hit “Lay me Down” starts. As he strolls past the venue’s reception; a Grand Marnier poster gets some vital screen time. Everywhere else in the world, the brand is never seen — a plain wall lies in its place. It’s one of the first examples of a new kind of temporary product placement called “digital insertion.”

A murderer's last words inspired Nike's "Just do it"

Dan Wieden, co-founder of the advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy,the agency behind Nike's "Just do it" slogan says that the world's most recognisable taglines was based on the words of a murderer facing a firing squad. Gary Gilmore had robbed and murdered two men in Utah and was executed by firing squad the following year. Gilmore, who had grown up in Portland, Oregan – the city that is home to both Nike and Wieden+Kennedy, was supposed to have uttered 'Let's do it' as his last words (though some say he actually said "Let's do this"). Dan Wieden, didn't think 'Let's do it' was quite it - so he changed it "Just do it". And the rest, like they say, is history!

Are We Coming to the End of SEO?

When Google in 2013 stopped providing data about keyword popularity, this must have served as a shot across the bow of SEO. It signaled that Google wanted to put a damper on SEO because they had determined it was skewing the results in a way unhelpful to its users. Source: Are We Coming to the End of SEO?

Why Brand Management Will Replace Marketing

P&G’s decision to formally end the era of “marketing” at the company and make the shift to brand management may accelerate what amounts to much more than a title change for marketers generally. It could point to a fundamental re-examination of the role of the people responsible for brands. While “marketing” and “brand management” are often treated as synonyms, there is an important distinction between the two terms. Marketing focuses on the activities associated with the promotion and distribution of products and services. Brand management has, for many, been historically focused on identity management but is now much more concerned with the active management of the market value and competitive strength of a brand as an (intangible) company asset. Marketing is about spending money. It’s how brands accumulate value. Brand management should focus on how products continue to wrap story and distinction around what they offer to increase competitiveness and build loyalty. The two are linked – but different. Marketing is the means. Brand management should be the goal.
