People Are the New Channel

In the 20th century, marketing campaigns focused on broadcasting content through a handful of powerful channels. In the 21st century, the media landscape is fragmented and people choose what content to consume themselves. Successful marketing campaigns embrace this new reality. Social media do not constitute new communication channels. People themselves are the channel.

The companies that successfully leverage new tools and technologies to activate people have three things in common. They use data to innovate, rather than imitate what their competitors are doing. They put people at the center of their campaigns by embracing today’s culture and align their organizations with it. And, they focus on measuring results and adjusting based on what’s actually working.
