I don’t think the marketing team at Kraft Foods Australia is playing any “Men at Work” music these days.  Then again, maybe they’re blasting it through the halls. In case you don’t remember the reggae-influenced 1980s rock group, chances are you’ve heard their song “Down Under,” which contained this classic lyric:   He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich . Welcome to the brave, new world of consumer generated marketing and the great 2009 Vegemite controversy. First, what the heck is Vegemite?  Well, it’s a yeast-based spread that the company says is “one of the ...

“A little over a year ago, we floated a theoretical chaos scenario. It goes like this. Mainstream media, especially network TV, lose so much audience, they can no longer attract the advertising revenue they need to sustain their content, leading to still more audience defection, then more advertiser defection, and so on into the toilet, all before the on-line brave new world is ready to take over. In this past year, plenty has happened to add to the chaos. TiVo and DVR usage is rising, with Forrester Research estimating that by 2008, one in four households will be DVR’ing their favorite shows and skipping past ... market research, surveys and trends


The Pocket Guide to Consumer-Generated Media - ClickZ
Sometime in late 2002, during a glorious early morning shower, the term "consumer-generated media" (CGM) jumped off my tongue like a sudden, gripping epiphany. The emotion was so strong I yelped to my wife, "Erika, I've found it!" I've yet to recover and probably never will. When The Wall Street Journal explicitly referred to "consumer-generated media" last week in a Marketplace cover story on marketers who tap blogs for consumer insights, it became clear CGM is advancing to an important, long-overdue tipping point of marketer understanding. To tip the term further along, I'm dedicating this column to CGM ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Cause Related – Marketing with Meaning
It is the sworn duty of every agency thought leader to play Monday morning quarterback with the annual orgy of advertising known as the Super Bowl. Yeah, I’m a little late to the conversation, mainly because the whole “building the business” thing has sucked my time away. (But, hey—we pulled out a couple of new business wins!) My tardiness actually works to my advantage, as it allows some time for the Super Bowl marketing efforts to actually start showing postgame results in the market. So, I present the Inaugural Marketing with Meaning Super Bowl Winners and Losers! Let me begin by laying out a bit of the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
School shoppers giving a lesson in individualism
NEW YORK — Stores and manufacturers always try to court kids during the all-important back-to-school season, but now that engagement means interactivity, not a flier with coupons or a catalog full of smiling children clutching notebooks. Kids want shopping to be fun, and they want clothes and shopping experiences with personality. Today's class of kids doesn't want anything cookie-cutter. And the industry is responding with creativity: Ralph Lauren Childrenswear, for example, has drafted an online storybook that allows young shoppers to choose the outfits off the backs of their favorite characters. The American ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Consumer generated marketing is a fact of life to which all of us will have to adapt.

The Open Brand Book Excerpt: Trust is In the Network
With the power of social networking, infinite online searching and mobile connectedness, consumers now have access to a boisterous bazaar of public opinion. How much is this easy access to the opinions and insights of individuals altering consumers' perceptions of authority? Quite a bit. Their sense of who has authority and who deserves it has changed dramatically.
