Naked Marketing - A Journey to the Future of Marketing

This is the second book from J. Christian Andersen, founder and CEO of Relationwise, danish online influencers' mapping platform.

Christian has travelled to Brazil to better understand advertising trends, having in the background the billboard/hoarding ban in São Paulo city and, in order to do that, has invited some Brazilian professionals to share their point of view on marketing future.

Chapter 2 - Transparency Makes the Façade an Illusion - presents our conversation about how brands/companies must 'undress' themselves from advertising masks and focus their efforts on effectively being what they want to communicate.

Some quotes below:

We should not take the worst of offline advertising and try to apply it online. Instead, both online and offline should use the best forms of non-interruptive marketing.
The mission/vision concept is really strong, but it has lost its real value. It has turned into a plague at the president's office. They are just words. It was strong once, and then when you put that in a beautiful frame, it does not represent what they are and it does not guide their decisions.
In our digitally connected world, consumers talk to each other; consequently brands are increasingly exposed and cannot realy on advertising to hide their failures or enhance or prove their benefits. They need to be more real and communicate what they are, and they need to be what they're communicating
Humanising means merely dropping the mask of the brands, of the companies. So humanising is something that is naturally tied to the exposition we are facing nowadays. As an analogy, in the past, when people used to go to a restaurant, they'd sit at the table and eat their food. The kitchen was hidden. Now the Kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant.
