The internet is vast. There’s definitely a lot of information out there. Some of it’s good, some bad, but at the end of the day the possibilities for discovery can be pretty amazing. Let me share an example. For our new Newborn and Child Survival campaign, Every Beat Matters, we partnered with Save the Children and OneRepublic to create an original song inspired by the heartbeats of children in need. Downloads of the song will benefit Save the Children’s lifesaving programs. Pretty cool idea right?
What’s even cooler is the way that song has already inspired young people. When the song was released we started participating in the conversations on our social media channels, and we discovered a young man by the name of JD from Colorado Springs, CO. He’s just an average 8-year-old fan of OneRepublic that decided to post a cover of their new song to YouTube.

We’ve all been in at a meeting or conference where words or phrases start getting thrown around that don’t seem to mean anything, but yet somehow manage to sound smart (most of the time). Here at the Ad Council, because we work with such a wide variety of organizations and industries, we hear advertising / marketing / social media buzzwords constantly. Some of them we start using ourselves, and some of them we say “wait….seriously?!” and laugh about it later.Read More
Since 1942 the Ad Council has been inspiring change and improving lives. This would not be possible without the efforts of a tireless staff.
That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to pull the curtain back and take you Inside the Ad Council! Armed with iPhones and Flip Cams we plan to make Inside the Ad Council an ongoing video series highlighting staff across each department. We hope you find our silly little videos fun and informative.Read More
