So if your resolutions include a healthy ROI in 2019, peer into our crystal ball and get in the game.

One-Second Spots

This new ad unit will be all the rage. Finally, a means to capturing consumers’ ever-shrinking attention spans. One and done.

“Tongue-Stopping” Content

As gaming grows and becomes a viable media avenue, popular Fortnite dances like “The Floss” and “Take the L” will make way for brand-sponsored dances like the Chevy Shuffle and T-Mobile Twist.

Say Hi to Generation AI

Move over millennials and Gen Zers. Artificial Intelligence is the new demographic on the block. Brands need to start marketing to robots and smart speakers before profits byte the dust.

Brands Get Brewing

In 2018, it was Dunkin’, IHOP and Planters with their own branded beers. In 2019, it just may be everything from Amazon Ale and Home Depot Hefeweizen to Puma IPA and Warby Parker Porter. If your brand doesn’t have a lager on the shelves, you better hop to it!
