Unfiltered fear for unfiltered media. Horror is a no -brainer when it comes to breaking through the clutter: it’s shocking, it plays with the very own matter of Death, and it is so epidemically viral that you could be the last survivor on Earth.

Testing with the target in style, side by side. Product testing 2.0 is unlike anything you've seen so far. If you really want to test the limits of your latest products, then focus on emotions, interactions and surprises.

Genuinely local digital products. Global interactive landscapes vs. locally grown practices. Geomarketing, geotargeting and geotagging are definitely on the rise.

Micro Trend
Location-savvy advertising is the real deal. Geography matters, and so does street -savviness. Consumers, no matter how much time they spend on the Internet, are inevitably part of their urban surroundings. Therefore advertising has to follow them street by street, ‘hood by ‘hood, house by house. The city is still the crossroads of interests, attitudes, styles and communities, and that’s where Digital Advertising comes into play.

The end target justifies the means. “Consumer” is no longer the right word to define the User, i.e. the real core of all media plans. The voice of the User shapes the campaign and resonates across every single element of it. Users can be spokespeople, campaign insights, means of interaction, simply anything. In them the sender, the recipient and the fabric of a message magically overlap.

Micro Trend
Engagement is the new Marketing. Brands are calling on their own consumers to express themselves in free and unconventional forms. It’s the dawn of the creative enjoyment of brands.

More Rumors for all. Why are so many apps, communities and online interfaces making us disclose the undisclosable in front of friends and strangers? That’s easy: secrets are the key ingredient of gossip, and gossip is what really separates V.I.P.s from the rest of us. What if we could all be celebrities and paparazzi, any time we want? Advertising has just the answer...
Micro Trend
Hunting for online gurus. Consumers are growing less and less preoccupied with social judgment, community opinions and online ratings: all they want is to be there, where the Message is created. Rejecting passiveness can be a very artful way of life.

Empowering a Better World. Marketers are embracing the wind of change that blows in the lives of consumers, therefore even web marketing can act as a propeller for collective development. The “human being” in all its facets is the real focus, thus pushing marketers to go beyond classical words like Consumers, Targets, etc. Brands are acting as enablers of human activities, promoting their own commercial goals in a not -so -obvious way. But this is no utopian philanthropy. Indeed, empowered consumers are the best ambassadors a Brand can ever appoint.

Micro Trend
A brand new kind of Simple. When new disruptive technologies go stealth, they can finally make life easier.
