Robert states, “A quarter in advertising feels like a year. So, it’s been a long few months. We changed our messaging early on to communicate opportunities about how to thrive in a down economy.
On April 2nd we published our Recession Marketing Guide, which the definitive research-backed look at businesses that have succeeded in economic downturns since the 1921 recession, through the Great Recession. This guide answers a critical question that I had, which was, what should we be advising our clients to do? We’re an advertising and marketing firm. Are we even relevant right now? The research shows that companies that push forward with marketing expenditure when the economy slows are positioned to see outsized returns when the economy rebounds”.
