What’s the Best That Can Happen During COVID-19?

There is a positive side to COVID-19 when you ask, What's the best that can happen? 

Our brand philosophy at Full Punch is an antidote to complacent marketing. We are calling on brands to embrace positivity and seek better outcomes, have a purpose and chase their dreams, follow through with brave strategy and bold creativity. What's the best that can happen?

Today, its meaning couldn't hold more truth. We all need to come together and chase positive outcomes. Not just in advertising and marketing, but in our everyday lives. Many of us remember 9/11 in 2001, the SARS outbreak in 2003, the global financial collapse of 2008 and the H1N1 Pandemic in 2009. Those times were hard.

The economy wasn't doing well, and there was already an abundance of agencies out there; a few were doing well, but many more were struggling. Without question, this continues to be a confusing time for agencies: digital agencies are becoming more traditional, traditional agencies are still trying to be more digital, media agencies are under the gun, and consultancies are trying to be more like agencies. We still have large agencies attempting to be nimble, while many small agencies are desperately trying to scale, and CRM shops are trying to be data shops. Or is it the other way around?

Despite the headwinds, these are precisely the reasons why Full Punch exists. While the world doesn't need another agency, brands need better outcomes. We've set out to create the next great agency from the ground up.
