Why Creativity Suffers in a Programmatic Ecosystem – And What to Do About It, with Sam Yates, Managing Partner at Neon Consulting


In today’s programmatic marketing & advertising environment, one where technology drives a ‘one to one’ conversation with the customer, the sheer volume of content needed to support the messaging strategy is causing a steep decline in creativity and quality of marketing communications. Simply having a targeted persona doesn’t automatically equal ROI or behavioral change for the consumer; In fact, targeting the right person with the wrong message can do more harm than good. Therefore, investing in quality creative should be the top priority of marketing and advertising organizations today, who share a communal responsibility for producing compelling, delightful content in an overly saturated market.

Joining us to detangle this complex issue in this episode is Sam Yates, Managing Partner at Neon Consulting.
