Welcome to the latest issue of R3LATIONSHIPS – our update of trends and insights in the marketing industry.

A new report from ANA Marketing Futures and R3 looks at sentiment around  innovation and technology, and how we can better equip marketers with the knowledge and resource they need. In the 2020 survey, 84% of marketers believe that innovation and technology will be integral to future brand growth, though most don’t have the time to immerse themselves in the subject.

Creative Production & Contract Clauses

The global health crisis has led to a 50% reduction in production costs against production studios, and 33% increase in brands hiring influencers to create content. With changes in schedules, processes, and assets required, marketers need to revisit contract terms and MSAs to ensure that best practice clauses on transparency and audits are in place and legacy clauses that are no longer relevant are removed or adapted.
