Celebrating Coachella at 18 Years: Ultimate Headliners Mixtape

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Mar 24, 2017 5:35:02 PM

I remember first learning about the Coachella Music Festival in the early-2000s, probably through a full-page ad in my coveted Spin magazine. Then there was the self-titled documentary film, which brought viewers impossibly close to Bjork, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, and other music heroes performing in a gorgeous setting. When I decided to relocate to San Francisco, Coachella was definitely part of the draw and my first festival delivered on all expectations.

From the start 18 years ago, Coachella succeeded by taking the best elements of other music festivals—principally Lollapalooza and the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival—and delivering a consistently awesome experience. The isolated desert location was selected so that people would surrender fully versus going back and forth from their homes.

Going Beyond the Initial Hook: Creative Customer Retention Strategies

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Dec 13, 2016 8:15:31 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for the bottom line. As retailers prepare for the final push of Q4, all of the usual sales drivers are carefully in place. Witness the festive store decorations and holiday music in malls across America, discounting galore, and omnichannel tactics to ensure customers have a consistent experience whether in store or online. But that’s not all: most bricks-and-clicks retailers are building engagement digitally through relevant offers, and increasingly pushing in-app messaging and exclusive offers and products. You may be one of them…

How to Think in Stereo about Content Marketing

In an age when content is king, individuals rely on a wide range of organizations—both media and non-media companies—to curate and help them navigate a high volume of information. Everyone seems to be getting into the content business, as it’s proven to create authentic engagement in a landscape where traditional ads get ignored.

While most organizations use content marketing these days, it’s notable that the majority of these do not think highly of their current programs. According to a recent Content Marketing Institute report, just 32% of B2B and 37% of B2C said their content marketing was either sophisticated or mature, so there is clearly much room for improvement. This can take many forms, from better measurement to a wider array of tactics.
