Havas Expands 'Meaningful Brands,' Studies Role Content Plays -- Or Not

At a time when brands, their agencies and their media trading partners are embracing content marketing as a logical solution for brands to reach consumers in a “post-advertising” world, some highly regarded research indicates they are mostly failing.


It's a tumultuous time for the marketing world

Maria Garrido shares her views on disruption, content, social media and the need for more meaning in marketing.

Looking to the future she discusses the power of social media and entertainment as brands and agencies try to move beyond traditional marketing and understand how this new communications ecosystem can drive better business results.

Havas Group’s Meaningful Brands study provides a backdrop to many of her comments on how brands can use analytics to help break down silos and close the gap between traditional agencies and the entertainment industry. She ends by explaining the benefits of the Vivendi and Havas partnership.

Creating meaningful brands, connecting with customers

Trust is no longer the buzzword in ensuring the efficacy of a brand. What is more critical now is how meaningful and connected a brand is to a customer.

With that in mind, Havas Media Group Malaysia CEO Andreas Vogiatzakis shares with StarBizWeek the agency’s Meaningful Brands study.

Is your brand meaningful?

As marketers, we would love to believe that everyone is as passionate about our brand as we are. After all, we live and breathe it every single day. It’s easy to get tunnel vision. That’s why a study like Meaningful Brands is important.
