Web 3.0 technologies like NFTs have gained popularity very quickly in the last two years. But, people still have a healthy dose of scepticism about this blockchain ‘revolution’ – and fair enough. The NFT space is saturated with fraud and is subject to some serious ups and downs.
Some consider NFTs to be a bandwagon fad poised to ‘pop,’ while others position them as emerging tools that will revolutionize the marketing and investing landscapes.
Either way, artists have been looking for a tool to better commodify their work for some time, and NFTs offer up a way to do so. While we undergo a rapid transition towards Web 3.0 and a digital economy of goods, more artists – musical, graphic, and otherwise – are producing digital works in an online, shareable space. NFTs emerged in response to artists’ need for a way to monetize their work.
They’re also a great example of the influence marketers have, along with a potentially effective strategy for companies looking to create a more personalized customer-brand community.

Want some tips to help write your first blog post? You’re not alone.
Honing your writing skills takes practice and persistence; it’s one of those things that you can never truly ‘master.’ The ultimate goal – whether you’re a blogger, a persuasive writer, an email marketer, or want to be the next Margaret Atwood – is to engage your audience and spark interest. Every word and phrase is intentional.
Unfortunately, there is no fixed recipe for capturing a reader’s attention. After all, writing is a creative endeavour that comes in various forms.
For our purposes, let’s define creative (or “blog”) writing as anything that’s not academic, scientific, or news writing – the opportunities are endless. But sometimes, the trick is just getting started.

In the post-COVID era, people and brands are seeking an opportunity to turn a meaningful new leaf, and it looks like Instagram is the latest member of the visual refresh club.
The last time Instagram visually rebranded was in 2016 when it changed its iconic polaroid logo to its now well-known pink gradient logo.
The 2022 update features three significant changes to the platform’s architecture:
- A vibrant update to its gradient motif via 3D modelling.
- The introduction of a brand-new typeface, Instagram Sans.
- A seamless, full-bleed layout that places community and content before anything else.

Imagine a perfect world where marketers have unlimited access to customer data across all devices, countries and ecosystems. They have a crystal-clear view of their customers, preferences, and exactly where they are in the buying journey. It sounds nice, doesn’t it?
Today, the unfortunate reality of marketing data privacy is not so simple; developing global privacy laws, changing consumer expectations, and new company policies are making customers harder to describe, actions harder to track and data more expensive.
This has put immense pressure on marketers and companies, forcing them to seek out creative ways around this newfound obstacle.

But even so, there are slivers of genius that break through the clamour of daily life and remind us just how special advertising can be.

Picture two different brands. Brand A and Brand B. Brand A is reliable, safe, and smart; It prefers safety over style and never strays outside of the lines. Brand B is different; it’s inspirational, resilient, cool, and constantly pushes the boundaries of what is achievable, never settling for less. Which brand inspires you? If you were to choose one to identify with, who would you choose? Crafting a powerful brand story is highly important for businesses and, if done correctly, can engage and inspire customers, converting them into loyal advocates.

As a Creative Marketing Agency, we work on all kinds of projects, and they come to us at a lot of different stages. One of the most common issues we see is when IT projects come to us almost complete but have not implemented a basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) setup.
We then have to go back, usually for an additional cost – thousands of dollars – and set up things like meta-tags, alt tags, correct page titles, keyword enriched URLs and, importantly, website architecture. Such a misstep can break the back of a startup or a young company, and it’s tragic to see – especially for something you can do right the first time.
