Media is the Flywheel of Marketing Integration

CMOs are changing the nature of their agency relationships to be more connected and to improve marketing impact. This leap toward greater integration alters the role of media as a capability. A marketing capability that used to be just planning and buying paid advertising now also comprises technology partnerships, content development, data enrichment, identity, customer privacy, innovation, company reputation, sales, and commerce. Media has become the flywheel for marketing regarding audiences, data, activation, message, and attribution: Data is the oil, content is the vessel, and media is the engine that propels them all. In this session Jay will share how dramatic shifts in consumer behavior over the past two years, and the collision of media and commerce in nearly every industry, requires a media-first reset for brands and agencies to optimize holistic marketing management.

Ford was looking to attract a new, younger, more diverse customer. They were also looking to differentiate and create a new compact truck pick up segment in North America anchored on affordability and versatility. Enter the Ford Maverick: "The Truck You Didn't Know You Needed." Since its launch last year, Maverick has been a major success story. In a business environment where every marketing dollar needs to count, focusing on the audiences Ford most wanted to attract – women, African Americans, Hispanics and younger millennials – was paramount. The Maverick story epitomizes Ford's ambition to reach those audiences in their digital channels of choice with authentic messages that resonate. Results speak for themselves as 76 percent of Maverick buyers are new to Ford.
