Has 'digital' become an anachronism?

I was struck by the news that Adam & Eve/DDB has dropped 'digital' from its job titles.

Firstly, what a perfect piece of PR. But there's more to it than that; the agency is an early mover in the next stage of an ideological regression that has been happening for a while now.

There's a backlash against technology, against third-party solutions, corrupt ad models, poor creative and even content marketing.

Agencies want to get back to 'the work'.

Talk like a human, for business’s sake

Let’s face it, it’s not too unusual to run into corporate communications that feel impersonal and distant from a customer’s point of view.

So, it's no coincidence that agencies use the word ‘humanising’ over and over again when providing advice on brand messaging. 

Putting aside any possible scepticism towards the seemingly volatile concept, humanising customer interactions must be the ultimate mission of any modern brand, which should empower its brave employees to shake off any robotic feel customers may perceive in their interactions with the company.

I spoke to Seth Patton, senior director of marketing for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Here's what he had to say about change in this sector.

Is it time for ‘marketing-as-a-service’ (MaaS)?

Snow Fall is a beautiful, interactive and immersive multimedia experience about the avalanche at Tunnel Creek in the US.

It was lovingly crafted by The New York Times in 2012 and was heralded as setting new standards in digital storytelling.

Seventeen months later, the publication’s internal innovation report was leaked. It points out that while projects such as Snow Fall are extremely popular, with more than 21m page views, they are not easily replicable.

Postcards from Korea: Using mobile to boost the in-store experience

When it comes to looking for hints on where mobile commerce is heading, marketers should look towards South Korea.

Not only is the country home to Samsung, the world’s largest supplier of smartphones, but Koreans have shown themselves to be rapid adopters of mobile technology.

Seoul is the eleventh biggest city on the planet with more than 25m people in the greater metropolitan area, most of whom have a smart device. Increasingly they look to use those devices to shop.

In 2013 62.6% of Koreans used their smartphone to shop, up from just 11.9% two years previously.

Fast adoption of 4G and in-store WiFi opportunities are driving this new approach to retail and offer businesses the chance to engage with shoppers in different and really exciting ways.
