To Be or Not to Be Edible - By John Hendrie

Where did it start? Was it the ice cream cone or Frederick’s of Hollywood, who gave us that splendid concept of edible product enhancements and presented us with a proud 'green' consumer experience.

On-Premise Beverage Alcohol Consumption Decreases In All Three Categories

The on-premise struggled in 2013 and 2014, as consumer confidence has prevented people from fully returning to their pre-recessionary spending levels. According to the Cheers On-Premise BARometer Handbook, distilled spirits consumption in restaurants and bars decreased 1.8%, wine 0.6% and beer 1.5%.

Why agencies are bullish on Spotify

Spotify has won the hearts (and marketing dollars) of digital agencies. It now has 60 million active users, which puts it in striking range of Pandora's scale. But it has a whole host of other benefits, including display and video ad units. “We’ve become very bullish on Spotify, especially in the last 6 to 12 months,” said John Tuchtenhagen, svp of media at Digitas. “They’ve made huge strides in the competitive space, mostly on scale, but also on better backend technology, products and targeting.”

Publishers love Whatsapp’s potential, but struggle with execution

Publishers are falling in love with WhatsApp, which is driving big traffic and engagement numbers. The challenge: retrofitting a platform meant for small-scale commutations into a platform that facilitates widespread dissemination has proven tedious. Still, WhatsApp is an attractive platform for publishers because it helps them look beyond Facebook, which still dominates their social strategies.

Why the FT is tweaking its digital paywall

The Financial Times has introduced a new twist on its subscription strategy that's aimed at bringing in new readers. The U.K. publisher is rolling out a one-month trial period during which people can sign up for $1. After the trial, the full price will kick in. But it’s also an advertising play: The FT, along with a few other premium publishers, is making engaged time on the site -- instead of the click -- a central part of its pitch to advertisers. Lowering the number of stories people can get for free could result in fewer casual readers and strengthen the FT's engagement case.
