ADVERTISING AS A SERVICE TO THE CONSUMER

Studies reveal that consumers mostly dislike advertising. They don't trust that their data is always being used for good, and they continue to turn a blind eye to it. As a result, media tactics have gotten more aggressive in following consumers around and interrupting experiences for exposure. This session will explore how advertiser can alchemize the doom and gloom of losing consumer tracking into a positive about how we can get back to the art of marketing and media planning, and challenge that advertising, when done well, is a service to the consumer.
