In episode 214 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss the death of journalism (through newspaper media) and how brands are missing an opportunity by not purchasing more newspaper properties.
Procter & Gamble (P&G) is growing like crazy but spending less on advertising than ever before. The boys think they know the reason, including help from Home Made Simple.
More B2B and B2C brands are investing in print magazines, including the likes of REI and Goose Island. Opportunity?
And FIPP suggests that future growth lies in niche media and underserved international populations.
In rants and raves, Joe raves iQiyi’s push into Chinese vertical dramas and believes that Stanford’s M&A program is something brand marketers and CMO’s need to pay attention to. Hint: Acquiring content brands instead of starting them fresh. Robert thinks that the move away from the CMO is like moving deck chairs (with kudos to this Ian Truscott post).
