Agile Marketing in the New Normal Presented by Pandora

This event is over.

Life has changed dramatically in the past 4-6 months. The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty like we’ve never seen before. Marketers have been impressive in their ability to be agile in developing creative and producing new work. More recently, the racial issues in America have sparked a global conversation and, as a result, many marketers have quickly stepped-up to re-examine their social responsibility commitments. This is the new normal – an environment that requires marketers to be both agile and thoughtful. This event will share fresh thoughts and insights on agile marketing in the new normal.

PANDORA: EXTRAORDINARY TIMES CALL FOR EXTRAORDINARY THINKING

Before 2020, the media landscape was going through change. Consumers were tuning into subscription OTT services and away from ad supported TV at a record pace. Voice, connected car and connected home were in focus and scaled. Consumers were spending more time with devices and consuming more digital audio in more places than ever before.

But today, brands are forced to operate in an environment of change and uncertainty. Economically and socially, the world is not the same and we as marketers need to reevaluate what we say, how we say, who we say it to and what channels we use to reach and earn the attention of the elusive consumer. Flexibility, agility, incremental reach are the new media buzz words.

For leading brands, those words mean different things and lead to varying media strategies. Let’s sit down with top marketers and see how they’ve been applying extraordinary thinking during these extraordinary times.

In our march toward change, Pandora and SXM will make a donation to Color of Change on behalf of every participant today. Color of Change is the largest online racial justice organization in the country driven by 1.7 million members. Color of Change’s mission is to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people, and champion solutions that move us all forward. Until justice is real.

WALKER & COMPANY BRANDS: BRINGING BRAND PURPPOSE TO LIFE

Walker & Company exists to make health and beauty simple for people of color. In this session, VP of Marketing, Tia Cummings, will share how the Bevel brand has a very clear purpose: supporting black men and helping them look and feel their best. With COVID-19 having a disproportionate effect on Black communities and the critical fight for racial justice taking center stage, it has become more important than ever to live that purpose and show support for black people during these trying times. Tia will discuss the importance of having a brand purpose that comes to life in everything you do, so when major events happen that could upend or challenge your marketing strategy, your brand is still set up for success.

REOPENING AMERICA: TRACKING DATA ON WHERE U.S. CONSUMERS STAND TODAY

In 2020, a whirlwind of change gripped the U.S. consumer. Lockdowns. Stay-at-home orders. Business closures. Life screeched to a halt.  And, now, we grapple with the uncertainty of reopening the American economy.  What does this mean for you? How should you communicate with an audience that isn't sure what’s next? In this session, Ericka Podesta McCoy, Chief Marketing Officer at Resonate will share dynamic consumer intelligence from March, April and May that answer important consumer questions including:

  • Which consumers are ready to travel by plane or train –– and who is willing to travel stateside or internationally?
  • Who is willing to step foot back in a mass gathering of hundreds, or even thousands –– and, for those who aren’t, what would it take for them to feel secure?
  • Which sports fans are eagerly awaiting a return to the field –– and which fans will tune in to watch teams play in front of empty stadiums?
  • When and how to pivot your messaging to capture audiences who are returning and which messages will put their anxieties at ease

You’ll gain access to the real-time data you need now as your organization looks forward to the third and fourth quarters.
