Should big banks be scared about the future of finance & investing?

Posted by Drew Chambers and Jason Abromaitis on Jan 23, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Apps like Robinhood and Acorns are shaking up a space that has been dominated by large establishments since the beginning of modern finance. What makes these apps so special, why are consumers responding to their message, and should big banks be scared?

Technology has infiltrated every facet of our lives (even when we’re sleeping). It’s only natural that tech companies large and small would turn their attention to one of the oldest and largest verticals (expected to reach a value of $26.5 TRILLION by 2022) in our economy, the financial sector. Tech has promised for a while to upend the way that people bank, even challenging what we consider fiat currency.

What Meatless Meats Understood that Changed the Vegan Food Trajectory

Posted by Drew Chambers, Jason Abromaitis, and Farhan Mustafa on Dec 12, 2019 5:45:00 AM

Beyond Meat and Impossible Burgers are everywhere, and the startups that created them are darlings of Silicon Valley. But what did they understand that previous vegan options didn’t? Utilizing the power of Grafiti and Corus together we’ll show you how moving away from social and lifestyle issues and instead focusing on taste in product development and marketing helped move the needle.

Impossible Meat made news recently when it partnered with Burger King on the “Impossible Whopper,” which their commercials describe as, “100% Whopper. 0% Meat.” They have been a huge hit, and along with other meatless meats like Beyond Meat, are taking grocery stores and dinner tables by storm. But what did these companies see that others before them didn’t? Vegan options have been available at grocery stores for decades, and organizations that promote veganism like PETA, have been around a similar length of time (PETA is getting ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary next year). Finally the issue of climate change has been talked about for years; “An Inconvenient Truth” was released 13 years ago in 2006. Our research indicates that these brands, especially their marketing and product development arms, tapped into something else.

Brands: The advantages of owning your brand trackers

Posted by Jason Abromaitis and Drew Chambers on Aug 20, 2019 9:02:00 AM

Don’t let the students grade their own tests! When you own the analysis and ROI calculation (instead of your agencies) you will get a more honest view of what is and is not working.

You need to track a lot of information to understand your position in the market. And there are no shortage of ‘MarTech’ companies out there offering ways for you to view that data based on a wide range of sales and marketing tactics that you may employ. Your agency has been all too eager to help you to monitor your marketing efforts as it helps them to control the flow of information about what isn’t going well.
