“Linda Schuster is tiny, but don’t let her stature fool you. Her marketing firm, Quantum Communications (or Q the Agency), services clients such as Brown-Forman, The University of Louisville and YUM! Brands, just to name a few. This woman is connected and committed to Louisville. Running her portfolio and raising a family definitely keep her on her toes, but this self-proclaimed foodie always manages to try the latest local restaurant. Welcome today’s FACES profile, Linda Schuster.
According to USA Today, the lowest rated Super Bowl spot of the over 60 spots aired was a short fifteen-second ad for a mobile game called Heroes Charge. It probably ranked so low because it was utterly forgettable rather than inherently terrible (like that now infamous Nationwide spot), but apparently even the most forgettable Super Bowl ad can mean big business.
The day before the Super Bowl, Heroes Charge was ranked as the 899th most downloaded iPhone app in the country. In the days after the ad aired, it shot up to 252nd on the downloads chart and 21st on the top grossing US apps charts. Those are pretty impressive numbers—and ones that can be almost entirely attributed to that single spot.
The Secrets of Marketing to Seniors
As the Baby Boomer generation grows older, the senior age group has become the largest in the US in terms of size and percent of the population. With that share of the market comes great buying power. In fact, today 77% of the country’s wealth is controlled by senior citizens. They’re living longer and becoming more active. That’s why, now more than ever, understanding how and why they buy is critical to any company hoping to maximize their marketing efforts.
