Ageism in Advertising

Ageism in Advertising


It's no secret the advertising industry is obsessed with the younger generations. We worship the altar of imagination and align creativity with the youth. The root of ageism in advertising is making assumptions and is a common idea that the older staff are maintaining boundaries while the young are breaking them. So how do we overcome this? By having these conversations, we can challenge this industry norm and be more open-minded because when we overlook specific age demographics, we overlook the opportunity.

The Seven Year Cycle

The Seven Year Cycle


Every industry has trends of their own, whether in retail, finance, marketing, etc. As a business, it's important to know how these trends and cycles affect you and can leave a devastating impact if you don't pay attention.

In this episode, we break down what the seven-year cycle looks like for us and why exactly it exists in the first place. There will always be an argument on whether hiring internal or external is more beneficial. Although, it's safe to assume which side we lean towards. :) What are some cycles you see in your industry?
