From the Great Depression to the economic tumult of this great pandemic, there is a common thread for marketing: Every downturn brings opportunity and innovation. In a new 56-page white paper, Ad Age examines innovation in the worst of times, from the 1930s to the present. What happened to marketers, media and agencies during past downturns? There were layoffs, closings and cutbacks—no surprise. But every deep recession also saw great innovation with new companies, products, services and technology. “Downtime Opportunity: 2020 Edition” offers an optimistic view of the opportunities that unfold in the toughest times.
