Last month the news broke that Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics firm, accumulated a wealth of Facebook user data from tens of millions of people that were allegedly used in various political campaigns. Since this announcement, Facebook has received a backlash from people worried about the privacy of their data.
Facebook has since reacted to this backlash by announcing they will be cutting third-party data providers out of ad targeting to help take back control of their own data set.
For years now, professionals have been worried about the effect the tech revolution will have on their jobs. If you compare the role of a Marketer to that of 10 years ago, there’s been a huge shift in their day-to-day with the inclusion of automation and data playing a large part in this change.

When Telefonica released Tu Go in 2016 their objective was to enhance customers’ experience by allowing messaging and phone calls when the user had no connection to their cellular network. Now coined as ‘Wifi calling’, Tu Go allowed users to make calls and send texts via their wifi network.
Unfortunately for Telefonica, they faced increased competition from the likes of WhatsApp, Skype, and Vibr, whose sole focus was quick, interruption-less communications. When Telefonica approached us they’d been using traditional media such as outdoor, press, radio & TV, with disappointing results.
Growing any business is hard. There’s no secret formula, and there’s a reason that 90% of startups fail. Now, more than ever, more brands are fighting for consumers’ attention which is making it increasingly difficult to survive as a business.
