  • There’s a cottage industry around the concept of “growth hacks”.
  • It is built around one premise: there always is a shortcut, an alternative way, a silver bullet.
  • Growth hacks, however, must be firmly rooted in big data.
  • It ain’t just throwing spaghetti to the wall to see what sticks.

By now you’ve heard about the floridly tone deaf Pepsi ad. You know, the almost three minute ad, what Pepsi called a mini movie, where, at the end of a multicultural protest – about something – the young model Kendall Jenner offers a Pepsi to a police officer among a line of riot officers. When he cracks open the Pepsi, all those multicultural millennials cheer and embrace. Because the sound of a Pepsi can opening apparently solves everything – racism, homophobia, gender inequality, maybe something else – and it even turns a self-absorbed model into a leader in the fight for… um… peace, hope, and beautiful models?  By David Morse, President and CEO of New American Dimensions

Consumers are right to be concerned about and demand strong protection of their privacy rights. Advertisers have long understood this highly legitimate need. That is why in 2010 the ad community launched the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) self-regulatory program to give consumers broad power to determine whether their Internet and mobile activities would be collected and utilized for advertising purposes. The ad community also has strongly supported a broad array of legislation to protect consumer’s truly sensitive financial, health, children’s and other similar data.

  • The outcry is a bit too much.
  • In all fairness, why is the premise of Pepsi’s Kendall Jenner spot stupider than the vast majority of content coming out of Hollywood, the music industry or Madison Avenue?
  • If the socialsphere and the thought police applied the same level of self-righteous scrutiny to every figment of pop culture out there, no movie, music video, TV show or TV spot would ever see the light of day.
  • At the very least, Pepsi tried to do something different.

A couple of weeks ago while skiing at Park City in Utah, I checked in to my return flight with Delta while riding up the Super Condor lift.
