Episode Highlights

Fluff vs. business asset. Ari began our conversation by sharing that VSA takes a different view of brand. “We see brand as a business asset. Some think it’s just advertising—brand as fluff.”

“Technology has enabled brands not to think a lot,” Ari added. “Because you can A/B test everything.” However, she cautions, we need to remember the consumer and not get carried away. “Less not more.”

P to P to E. Ari also shared the VSA approach to defining a brand’s goals. “We think of it in terms of P to P to E—Promise to Performance to Experience.”

What brand has made Ariadna smile recently? Ari shared an engaging new IKEA campaign factoring in your “travel time” to the store.
