The power of consumer insights (combined with woke strategy and creative)
The power of consumer insights (combined with woke strategy and creative)

Never has it been so evident to acknowledge and value the power of consumer insights in 2017. The world is in a constant state of flux, continuous evolution and so too are we as consumers in how we do things, what we stand for and how we share experiences. Therefore, marketing is a shot in the dark without great insights and I would like to believe that any seasoned marketer knows this.

Frank talk: Rethinking value in agency-client relationships
Frank talk: Rethinking value in agency-client relationships

Frankly, the current way of working between marketing agencies and clients is in a state of flux and we are not sure what's coming next. We have seen this before, but this time it's different. We know that for marketing agencies, adding value is no longer a price nor capability consideration - those are basics that should always be right. It's now about genuinely understanding the way people are consuming information and adopting a structure that enables this understanding. Agencies who are in that state of mind are the perfect partners, poised to help clients get ‘fluent in tomorrow' and win for the future.

Scan Display's solution to Cape Town water shortages

Cape Town's population has grown by 55% since 1995, while dam storage has only grown by 15% in the same period, reports the news agency, GroundUp. So while Cape Town has previously experienced lower levels of rainfall compared to the past two years, the pressure the city is under to supply water is greater than ever before. Add to this the likelihood that climate change is impacting rainfall patterns, and increased water scarcity is most likely going to be the new normal in this region.
