Have you ever been in a bookstore and seen a person gliding her fingertips over the book covers? She’s barely looking at the titles, just skimming four fingers across the tops of the stacks. Occasionally she stops, and places her whole palm down on a specific cover, rubbing it, feeling it, petting it. When she thinks no one’s looking, she may take a magazine with a grainy varnish on the cover and gently touch it to her cheek...

When trying to describe the world of media in the past year, the concept
of “fake news” inevitably comes up. What is true? What isn’t true? However, despite that, the news remains an important part of public life—more than seven-in-ten U.S. adults follow national and local news somewhat or
very closely...

It’s true—at least at most traditional marketing agencies. And this is a big miss. Creatives get into the business of marketing to express, create and, ultimately, receive some internal self-worth from sharing the thoughts and ideas that come out of their needy brains...

Digital pharmaceutical advertising presents a different set of challenges for pharma marketers than digital marketers in other industries, including ensuring consumer privacy and adhering to government regulations. It’s why the industry has been slow to embrace digital marketing’s potential. But the opportunity that’s available—for increasing awareness, affinity, and conversion—can’t be ignored...

The other day I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed after work, smiling at cute animal videos and liking friends’ life updates. I came upon an ad that caught my attention with the words, “Buy your mom the perfect Mother’s Day gift! Donate school for a year to an underprivileged woman.” Oops! I had forgotten that Mother’s Day was less than two weeks away...

May the Fourth Be With You:
A Plea for the Consumer

A few months ago, my husband convinced me to book a trip to Disney World with our 16 month old daughter, so that he could run the Star Wars Half Marathon. It didn’t take that much convincing on his part, but it wasn’t the family trip to Disney that he was focused on. It was the promise of a race filled with storm troopers and photo ops with Chewbacca, BB-8 and Darth Vader...

Millennial Advertising:
Marketing to a Generation
that Doesn’t Want to Adult

As the Millennial generation marches onward into adulthood, we find ourselves constantly torn between performing the necessary daily tasks required to keep our lives in order, and reminiscing of younger days and simpler times.

The most interesting conversations I have with media buying and marketing folk often lack the well-worn language.

I’m on my phone all day, every day. Like 80% of my Millennial counterparts, my phone is the first thing I look at when I wake up, and the last thing I look at before I go to bed1. When I get to work, I’m primarily on my desktop. And when I get home, I rarely have the luxury of powering down for a brief digital detox—I’m in front of the TV with either my tablet or my phone, while simultaneously asking questions to my always-listening Alexa...

I have been in love with the printed word since I was a mere boy of nine-years-old.
