Hey marketer, did you not make it to Nordic Business Forum this year?
  Here, I summarised some of the key themes for you.
      1. Advertising sucks  

  Yeah, he went there. No one really likes to be interrupted by ads. No one.
      Professor    Scott Galloway    thinks that the target group everyone wants to reach – the young and wealthy – are currently getting up, leaving the admosphere (yes, I might’ve just come up with that term) and paying for peace.     Netflix, for example, would apparently lose two thirds of its subscribers by allowing ads to enter the blissful, uninterrupted world of on-demand quality content.  
  And so the world’s fastest growing companies have one thing in common: they do not advertise.
  A fat advertising budget is no longer a signal of success.    On the contrary, traditional players are falling as startups unbundle the P&Gs of the market and reallocate ad budgets to bettering their products.  
      Des Traynor    , cofounder of      Intercom, mentions      Uber,      Slackand      Dropboxas examples of companies with superior products and         $0 marketing budgets.    Gary Vaynerchuck    , the designated social media marketing rebel of the conference, distinguishes between commercials and quality content: according to him an ad gets to interrupt our flow if the quality of it is high enough.  
  A fat advertising budget is no longer a signal of success.
  Whatever the approach to paid attention, speakers seem to agree on the loser in the fight for audiences. Tough luck, television.
  In fact,    Galloway    predicts that we’re currently experiencing the last gasp of broadcast television. Rio Olympics and the United States presidential election of 2016, he says, will be the last broadcasted events before the cable’s getting cut.  
  Ad money is escaping from bothering audiences on broadcast to the lush lands of pinpoint targeting on    Facebook,    Google, and whatever is coming next. Speaking of whatever is coming next…  
      2. New social media aren’t for the hip and cool – they’ll soon be the only game out there  

  “If you don’t understand the speed at which your customers move, you are very vulnerable. Attention is your only asset.”
      Vaynerchuck    speaks with an air of urgency, downs a shot on stage and dismisses all your excuses on why you don’t need be on      Snapchator      Instagram.      
      It’s not mobile first, it’s mobile only.     You need to learn how to market on      Facebookand      Youtubeor you’re finished, Vaynerchuck threatens.        Every company is a media company, and you should recognise that you de facto are one immediately, amen.  
  “The scene is different in my country.” No, it isn’t.
  “My customer isn’t in these new media, they’re older.” YOU’RE older.
      Vaynerchuck    thinks that anyone who’s not retiring in the next ten years needs to familiarise themselves with social media – not because they’re fun but because they’ll soon elbow out all competing channels.   
      Dick Costolo    , former CEO of      Twitter, also discusses the subject. “This is not important and doesn’t affect my business” is a toxic way to think, and it will end up hurting the business.      
  “My customer isn’t in these new media, they’re older.” YOU’RE older.
      Whereas the general consensus seems to be that legacy media can’t compete with their social counterparts for much longer,    Galloway    predicts that brick and mortar is making a comeback in another strongly digitalised industry: retail.  
  He thinks that ecommerce companies either build stores or go out of business.  
  “The world is omnichannel, but the store experience is still the most influential factor when making a purchasing decision. It’s like a first kiss, the first physical interaction the customer has with your product.”
      3. Brands are essentially about hitting below the belt  

      Dick Costolo    describes the development of new technologies like one might describe how avocados in Finland ripen: gradually, then suddenly. Profound technological change often takes time. Yet, when the breakthrough finally happens, the industry has already changed fundamentally.  
      Changes in technology affect changes in business affect changes in branding and marketing, and the only constant really is change (someone – namely,      Traynor– had to say it this time round as well        ).   
      Galloway     points out that people used to defer to brands because they don’t have the tools to figure out what product is right for us. In 2016, however, we’re all armed with Google, TripAdvisor, Amazon and Instagram hashtags.    Peter Diamandis    , CEO of XPRIZE, calls this the era of perfect information: we have access to more tech than the US government in the 1960s, and knowledge is free on Google.  
  A brand has to scream, be a better person! Think different! Apple users get laid!
  What this means is that as consumers, we possess all the tools to make the best and most rational possible choices.
  However, successful brands do not appeal to rationality.
      According to    Galloway    , they appeal to emotions (and genital sex). Consumer niche brands with their own distribution are thriving.    Margins are made in irrational choices    . A brand has to scream, be a better person! Think different! Apple users get laid!  
  Sound aggressive?    Seth    Godin    says that we’ve branded ourselves to death. Solutions à la one size fits all will simply not cover it anymore. Relevant brand as well as marketing messages should be directed at relevant people who actually want to get them.  
      Case in point:      Nordic Business Forum should probably start bombarding me with elaborate marketing messages on next year’s conference.      
  Thank you for an interesting conference, see you in 2017!
