All this leaves me scratching my factual smooth on top organizer.
I think through that commerce in the digital global is bedeviling major brands. I get the fact that agencies can't or haven't really followed their audiences next to the pace or gracefulness that marketers necessitate. And I cognise why administrative body brands are rush to grasp the "latest and extreme stand you can breakthrough to devote merchandising dollars", as Eric Friedman put it in his Marketing.fm diary.
What I don't get is:
1. Why all of a sharp did this special virtual international get the nod?
2. Is this the flavor of the hebdomad or are these pioneer brands staking out premier solid material possession in a international I'll eventually necessitate to thought about?
3. Who genuinely believes that imitation trueness and this unusual look of artificial sincerity will emerge as the venue and the common scheme of choice for either consumers or business?
4. Who can allocate alarm marketing riches to bet on a new and self-perpetuating budget queue item?
5. Is this, as Jeff Lanctot of AvenueA/Razorfish wondered "a viewing case, a bit of an exemption or a way to cultivate yourself to marketers?"
