“Today’s consumers know what they want. What’s more, they want an active role in the decisions that affect their experiences.”
it goes on to say that “Interaction with media and advertising is completely different today – it is multi-dimensional and brands must constantly adapt and push the limits on creativity to gain connection with their dynamic consumers.”
