‘Contextual Commerce’ and the Evolution of Advertising

Featuring: Laura & Hank Frecon, Source Digital

With more households bingeing on Netflix, Hulu and Apple+ content, companies need a more contextual way to reach and influence consumers. Laura and Hank Frecon started Source Digital as a result of Laura’s work as a costume designer for shows like “Mad Men.” She wanted to find a better, more organic way to connect viewers to the products featured in specific scenes. Now, the company is helping usher in a new era of “contextual commerce” and driving innovation in one of advertising’s most renowned channels. During this episode, Laura and Hank share:
