Digital Winners and Losers: What Winning Brands Have In Common (video)

What Benjamin Button and Winning Brands Have In Common

(Editor's note: Please note language in video at 2:37 to the end may be offensive to some readers.)

Video above published on Feb 23, 2017 by L2inc.com:  NYU Stern Marketing Professor Scott Galloway on digital winners and losers:

Winner: Firms whose products become more valuable with use--SalesForce.com, Facebook.com, Amazon.com, Priceline.com, Redhat.com, TripAdvisor.com, Alphabet (Google.com),-- a trait shared by most of today's top-performing companies. In contrast, old-economy successes including Ford and Caterpillar produce items that decline in value.

Winner: Facebook Messenger. With a third of Americans on the platform, brands that haven't yet launched chat bots may be missing a major opportunity.

Loser: Twitter. Despite the engagement boost from Trump's controversial missives, the platform barely gained any monthly users in Q4 - prompting Twitter to start counting daily users instead.

Plus: does (Netflix) cheating count when the other person is asleep?
