“Research shows that toddlers start recognizing brands by the time they’re 2 years old. By the age of 10 many consumers have already picked their brand of choice across a variety of products— from cereal to automobiles. How does this brand affinity become so strong before consumers are even of legal driving age? Consumers develop emotional attachments to brands as a result of years of brand awareness campaigns–traditionally on the television. In today’s world of the “always-on / multi-device” consumer, how have awareness campaigns evolved? Where does the TV ad stop and the digital campaign start?”
