    Episode Quotables 

    “Between screens and then touch screens to then streaming media, obviously every consumer is carrying around a device in their pocket or in their purse, so the digital world has absolutely become part of the physical world. The trend that we’re seeing though is that this is becoming much more intentional, much more planned.”
    “What digital has also been doing, from a consumer behavior standpoint, is training us to self serve.”
    “Too often when we watch brands build in digital tools or pull digital tools into physical environments - they believe it’s a substitute for a human or for a time tested method that may still work. And it’s not that they can't supplant these types of offline behaviors or vehicles to serve somebody. They really need to augment them - say, ‘Alright, how far can a digital tool take you before you need a human?’”
    “If you understand the data you have on your customer, really understand it, and why a consumer would find something of value with personalization, you can deliver that much more of a richer experience.” 
    “Pick the right piece of content for the right environment and, again, you’re already a step ahead.”
