The Biggest change in marketing that I see coming in the next 5 years is?
We are going to see the influencer bubble shrink. It won’t pop; influencers will continue to be important, especially for new brands, but the weight they once carried will not remain. Marketing is cyclical…trend-based marketing almost never works in the long-term. When you approach every client by asking the question: which marketing strategies will best further their business goals, and then customize a strategy to align with those goals, you are positioned for success.
What percent of your advertising service offerings does media buying make up?
What makes your company unique?
Arco + Associates is unique because we customize each strategy for our clients. They get creative implementation, but they also receive high-level business consulting. The latter is necessary in order to create a marketing strategy that moves the needle.
