Today, brands arent built just through carefully orchestrated ad campaigns or splashy publicity stunts. Perceptions are also formed through the news stories of the hour and the timely stream of online conversations about brands. Savvy marketers are retooling their communications practices to market more nimbly and take advantage of fleeting opportunities, online and off. Its the age of extemporaneous marketing.
