The growth of digital information has drastically altered the relationship between consumers and brands. The wealth of information collected and shared online keeps consumers accessible to the companies hoping to reach them.
While at Cannes Lions, CEA’s very own Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac, shared his thoughts on how this is increasing the power of consumers, including how they manage their health. He talked about the possibilities arising from the growth of digital information, but also cautioned that when dealing with new innovations, patience is key.
