Advertisers Riding The Slippery Slope Of Liquid Consumers

June 24th, 2015|Tags: , , , , , |

Social Media 3d SphereConsumers are constantly striving towards something better, something new, and something more convenient. Lets face it, with all of the smart technologies on the market, society has recognized the ability to get what they want, when they want it. People are no longer grounded on one platform or homepage, but rather they have the freedom and ability to access the Internet wherever and whenever they please. This concept has brought about the idea of the “liquid consumer.” Things are no longer black and white for advertisers, but rather they are a combination of the two. A vast spread of grey area has evolved for advertisers where campaigns and promotions are no longer devised by following a simple formula. As consumers become more liquid, marketers must adapt by becoming much more “liquidly creative” and recognize that they can no longer put all of their advertisements in one place. […]

This Girl Can: A Campaign for Girls of All Shapes and Sizes

January 21st, 2015|Tags: , , , |

thisgirlcanLast week, an organization that encourages women of all ages to be active in the UK, released an inspirational video depicting girls and women going hard at a variety of fitness activities. The video plays Missy Elliot’s “Get Your Freak On” as women of all shapes and sizes work hard, sweat, and love whatever form of exercise they are doing. According to Facebook, the This Girl Can campaign was developed by Sport England and “celebrates the active women everywhere who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get.” The real kicker is their differentiating point. The This Girl Can campaign doesn’t focus on weight loss or fitting into a size determined by numbers, but rather, the importance of the feeling you get after a good workout. Some call it a runner’s high, some call it exhaustion, but it is depicted perfectly as a girl collapses on her couch after a good run. There is a satisfaction of working hard when working out. […]
