the next BIG sync
I’m sure you already said to yourself when interacting with a brand’s campaign “Booooring, X brand has already done something similar”, “Do they think this is going to make me buy their ridiculous product” .. etc.
However, brand innovation is not that easy, it takes a lot of work, creativity, money …
I would have said “give companies a break”, but no!
Consumer have more choice, more access to information, and are more and more KING! if a certain brand is not fulfilling their needs (whether utilitarian or need for entertainement), well guess what? they’ll find satisfaction in another brand
Innovation is becoming more and more important in today’s marketing to survive and have a sustainable business.
It all comes down to understanding and anticipating what consumers would want
Engaging with them
Planning accordingly and executing PERFECTLY.
