Place your bets: 2018 will be the year of hard choices
Opinion By Giles Hedger - 15 January 2018 18:54pm
2018 will be the year in which advertising agencies make some of the hard choices that they’ve been putting off for a decade.
I say a decade because the industry’s need for reformation can be traced back to some key events in the mid-to-late Noughties.
For example, the banking crisis of 2008, which rebased the marketing-driven economy forever. The rise of social media advertising platforms, which rewrote the mass marketing playbook forever. The launch of the iPhone and iPad, which began the shift in consumer electronics towards mobile-first computing and changed the time and place paradigm of advertising forever. The testing and optimisation of IBM’s Watson, initially as a quiz-show contestant, but ultimately as the precursor of scaled artificial intelligence that would change automated marketing forever. The start, in 2007, of John Lewis’ Christmas advertising tradition, which helped to revive long-term emotional priming and militate against the emerging digital marketing model, breaking the industrial consensus forever.
These and other forces, set in motion a decade ago, have combined awkwardly and powerfully and now exert such overwhelming pressure on the viability of advertising agencies that we have no choice but to place some big existential bets.
I would argue that we can no longer be all things to all clients or host a tangle of contradictory business models. It is not possible to be labour-intensive factories and at the same time be lean and trusted consultants; we can’t hedge our bets as a jack-of-all-trades. Instead, we need to work out what we do that clients still value; what we do that software can’t do more quickly; what we do that algorithms can’t match; and then – to paraphrase Quentin Crisp – we need to do it like hell.
If you’re a CEO who is entrusting yourself to the forces of positive ambiguity, be very afraid. If your strategy is to shape-shift towards some unmarked horizon, removing cost and hope, one brittle Jenga brick at a time, then http://crwd.fr/2DmCGIl

“every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals themselves.” #designsbydianne
