It's been a busy few weeks at Facebook, what with the ad boycott, hastily arranged meetings with agencies, bullish statements from Mark Zuckerberg ('who needs advertisers, and in any case they'll be back soon enough'), and remarks from the company and its supporters that there's really nothing to see here at Facebook we were in any event cleaning out the Augean stables. No one believed them.  By Brian Jacobs - The COG Blog

You’ve done the segmentation studies. You’ve parsed the data. You’ve sliced and diced every bit of learning you could get about your target consumer. (Maybe you even came up with a catchy name for your cohort, like “Determined Doers” or “Moms on a Mission.”) Now you’ve got a perfect picture of one very speci c type of individual.  You understand their attitudes, their beliefs and their path to purchase. And you’re counting on these assumptions to inform every part of your digital marketing, from creative development and media placement to analytics and optimization.  There’s just one problem.

A growing share of the marketing budget is managed according to the principles of targeted-performance marketing: personalized messages, direct impact measurement at the level of individual users, near-time optimization, and partial automation. This is especially true for digital marketing activities that drive conversion and purchase.

Failure is one of the most important sources of success – especially in times of Covid-19 – but only when companies allow their employees to experiment and adapt to changing customer needs.

Influencer marketing is now big business, but it comes with challenges. How can marketing and communication professionals ensure influencers have the right impact on their brand?

There’s been a lot of debate over the term Latinx. What exactly does it mean? How is it different from Latino or Hispanic? Is it positive? More inclusive? Elitist? The term itself and its popular usage especially by Millennials has sparked a lot of debate and started conversations about identity, gender and ethnicity. It seems like this term isn’t really going anywhere any time soon, but considering the wide range of opinions on the matter, should we just stop using the word ‘Latinx’ altogether, or are there some merits for this more encompassing term to describe the Hispanic community?  What is Latinx?

Latinx was originally formed in the early aughts as a word for those of Latin American descent who do not identify as being of the male or female gender or who simply don't want to be identified by gender. More than likely, there was little consideration for how it was supposed to be pronounced when it was created. Nevertheless, people have attempted to assign some pronunciations to it. The most common way to pronounce Latinx is the same way you would Spanish-derived Latina or Latino but pronouncing the "x" as the name of the English letter X. So you get something like \luh-TEE-neks\.
