The importance of video content for brands

25/03/2014

A large proportion of the new business meetings I attend these days seems to go down a fairly similar route: brief intro to us, discuss fit, show case studies and then talk about video. To be fair, It’s hard to deny the importance of video in todays ‘connected world’. The stats are compelling and clearly […]

Is ‘sharing’ the sixth sense brands should focus on?

18/03/2014

I read with great interest the article in Adweek by Matt Eastwood asking if a person needs to be physically present for a brand experience to resonate. With all campaigns, it seems, if possible, the best way is to be integrated and to use a variety of touch points to engage with your audience. Sometimes, […]

What’s The issue With Targeted Marketing?

07/03/2014

The accuracy of online advertising these days can be frightening to many; think George Orwell’s ’1984′, with the thought police who know what you’re thinking all day, every day. Online companies can track your behaviour online, and pinpoint with extreme accuracy what you want to buy. But should this be seen as the beginning of […]

Paddy Power has again provoked controversy with the launch of a campaign guaranteeing to refund losing bets if South African athlete Oscar Pistorius is acquitted in his murder trial.

By Anja Weise Having recently re-launched as Collider there was naturally a lot of collateral to create.

Measuring ROI in experiential is easy. Isn’t it?

26/02/2014

Every few weeks we get together to discuss blog topics here at Collider. ROI in experiential came up and I put my hat in the ring to give some thoughts. As soon as I did, I thought this was going to be a bit of a poisoned chalice as everyone in the industry has different […]

Can an agency promise great ideas in one hour?

17/02/2014

You give us one hour. We generate quality ideas” they say. The concept of Sweden’s new One Hour Agency is simple and easy. Maybe just a little too easy to be true. These new “fast-thinking” type of agencies are emerging along with some other gimmicky models—like the “World’s Fastest Agency” or “Pay What You Want” agency. So what goes into that hour? After ten […]

Bribes not Likes

14/02/2014

  By @Anja_Weise I recently read a post on Social Media Today titled How to Turn Shares and Likes into Customers and Conversions.
