How To See What Your Competitors Are Advertising

By Alex Andrade-Walz on November 7, 2018 at 5:21 PM

Let’s face it. We live in a dog-eat-dog world.

As soon as one store drops its prices, another is sure to follow suit. As soon as one finds success on a new advertising channel, rival brands will flock into to piggyback off its success.

Whether you’re the first mover or an emerging challenger, staying on top of your competitors offers a treasure trove of vicarious learning. A quick search can save you thousands of dollars in testing and help you immediately identify what works, what doesn’t, and what your competitors are doing that you can do even better.

And the best part? You don’t have to be 007 to deconstruct what your competitors are doing with their marketing. It just takes a few quick searches and some interpretation, both of which we’ll walk you through in the remainder of this post.

Ad Agencies of the Future: 4 Ways Agencies Are Innovating in a Darwinian World

By Alex Andrade-Walz on August 14, 2018 at 10:57 AM

***This is the second part of a 3 part series. If you enjoy starting books several chapters in, keep reading. But, if you’re one for beginnings and ends, you might want to read this first.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” – Mark Twain

 

How advertisers are differentiating themselves through tech, data and venture capital to not just stay in business but thrive.


R/GA, in a sense, is an advertising agency. Its industry-leading team has created award-winning work for some of the world’s biggest (and coolest) brands like Air Jordan, LEGO, and Beats by Dr. Dre. We would name more, but the list would probably take up the remainder of this article.

Yet, to pigeon-hole R/GA as strictly an advertising agency would be an injustice to the organization that is constantly changing, morphing, and transforming several steps ahead of the rest of the world.

What Location, Coffee Shops, and Sabertooth Tigers Can Teach You About Landing More Paying Customers

By Alex Andrade-Walz on July 18, 2018 at 1:38 PM

 

10,000 years ago, the world was a much more dangerous place, and so we formed tribes to protect ourselves from starving to death, becoming a tiger’s next meal, or being attacked by neighboring invaders.

As these tribes grew, they began speaking in the same tongue, eating the same foods, enjoying the same things and sharing the same beliefs –– thus culture was formed.

Today we no longer have to worry about being eaten by a sabertooth. In fact, for most of us, our biggest daily concern is successfully hunting down an elusive Wi-Fi password.

Yet, regardless of the fact that the world is much safer than it once was, we still find ourselves forming tribes… a phenomenon that is extremely important to be aware of if you are a marketer or business owner.

 

Why tribes matter for brands of all shapes and sizes.
