  • Super Bowl 51

    Nida Nizami – Social Media Standpoint What’s the Super Bowl without banter from the world’s largest sports bar, better known as social media? In recent years, the game viewing experience isn’t complete without tuning in to see what the rest of the nation has to say on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. TV ad buys alone are no longer enough to sustain a successful Super Bowl campaign in the digital era. TV commercials start the conversation and social media completes it. Social media users showed up this year with 27.6M tweets related to #SB51 and 240M interactions on Facebook. Here are the top…

  • Change Management: A Smart Business Move

    Change. Did you just shudder? Did you start having flashbacks of a new process that took twice as long? Or maybe a system that you had no idea was changing or how to navigate. Have you experienced morale decreasing around the water cooler as everyone aired their grievances about things happening to them and feeling de-valued and out of control? Too often, companies proceed with new systems, processes or organizational changes solely focused on delivering the technical solution.

We rented an apartment and I set out to explore the city. Twenty-four meetings later, eight of which were with New York agency heads, I noticed some common themes about our industry and what’s on the horizon.

  • Marketing to the Modern Patient

    Today’s patient wants it all – expertise, convenience and individualized care. They appreciate advancements and technology, but the patient experience is tied more to how you make them feel. There is more data and insight available than ever before to help effectively market to the modern patient, but all of this data can be overwhelming. That’s why we created an infographic to help health care marketers better understand the profile of the modern patient. Patients are more informed thanks to online tools and direct-to-consumer marketing. They are cost-conscious and seek a personalized patient experience. Despite the challenges these traits may…

  • Halloween Candy Culture

    Evidence-Based Observations of Saxum’s Version of the Office Water Cooler You might be familiar with “the water cooler” as a gathering place in an office where everything from childhood stories to weird dreams from last night are shared among coworkers. While Saxum has an actual water cooler, over time, members of the Oklahoma City office have come to gather instead around an unassuming taupe-colored box that “secretly” (and magically) houses fun size candy year-round. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for me, my desk is right in sight of the Candy Box. I began to notice some trends in candy consumption. Like any…
