Consumers want experiences and catered content, not the usual marketing tactics that companies are used to providing.

In essence, they need to shift into an “out with the old, in with the new” mentality; essentially debunking any expired way of thinking.
Advertising has come a long way since the first TV advert on July 1, 1941, for Bulova Watches. Fast forward 80 years and you’ll find yourself smack dab in the middle of a dizzying array of advertising.

Luckily, it’s 2021 and you can just open your favorite grocery app and get your forgotten item delivered, at a time of your choice. Dinner is saved.
