Branded, Episode 1
I found an example of what kind of ‘branding’ the podcast is all about, with Burberry. A brand that changes, even significantly, can also be authentic, but it has to be good at Storytelling.
After talking about Frozen as a calculated move, let’s look at the Lego movie as the ultimate example of the win-win-win marketing solution. (Company wins more money, consumers win with more admiration of a loved product, and the brand is served at the high level.)
Facebook’s first attempt at formal advertising is a bizarre and awkward brand manifesto.
Facebook first home’s ad was actually pretty funny in a quirky sort of way, and the entire campaign was a more approachable, if not somewhat flawed, attempt at brand advertising.
