We asked our very in-the-know planning director Ben Fillery, what he thought was the hot marketing topic for 2015 – and why this will have the most impact on the industry.
What trend do you see having the most impact on the industry in the coming year?
Omni-channel marketing. It’s the seamless experience a consumer gets from both a physical and digital channel. According to MIT’s report ‘Beyond the checkout Cart” more than 80% of store shoppers check prices online. Consumers are going from screen to store and store to screen throughout the shopper journey process. The shopper journey is no longer linear from trigger, consideration, review, purchase and evaluation, consumers will move between each decision point of the shopper journey until they are ready to make that all important purchase.Read more >
Back to school is one of the largest spending periods of the year, but is not only parents who will be spending big, as Millennials are predicted to splurge over £100s million of their own money on kitting themselves up for school and university.
It’s also a time when coupons and dollar-off promotions reign king. You only have to step foot into the supermarket to see brands devaluing themselves with half-price backpacks, drink bottles, school stationary or 2 for 1 lunchbox snacks. Clothing retailers often fall victim to price cutting and bundling too, by discounting school shoes, apparel and accessories.*Read more >

We’ve piggybacked on the royal birth by creating our very own press advert in Marketing Week which communicates our core belief - that everybody should be rewarded.

Our rewards aren't exclusive to one lucky winner, or a prize for the few… they're for everyone.Read more >
