On Brand Soundbite. “In addition to the millions of dollars wasted on ads that are not digitally optimized, brands are missing other marketing opportunities for their holiday promotions,” says Amanda Proscia. “Each holiday season, ads are repeated from previous years without any updating to their message or target audience. Not only does this result in ads that under-perform, but it also misses out on gaining the value of refreshed storytelling.”
