This is what marketers have to say… Were taking dollars directly out of television. - Dave Burwick, CMO, Pepsico The time has come for us to agree that mass-media marketing is over. Our brand means different things to different people. - Larry Light, CMO, McDonalds There must be and there is life beyond the 30-second spot. We must accept the fact that there is no mass in mass media anymore, & leverage more targeted approaches. - Jim Stengel, CMO, P&G Consumers in the age groups and with the mindsets we are dealing with graze across all media, so we cant afford to have a TV-centric approach. Well fish where the fish are. - Ian Beavis, VP Marketing, Mitsuibishi Motors
