Following yesterday’s talk from Living Social’s Mitch Spolan, this morning at Leading in Local: The National Impact, The Weather Co.’s Curt Hecht offered another primer on applying creativity to national to local marketing and advertising.

Hecht is an ad agency veteran who serves as Weather’s global chief revenue officer, driving revenue generation strategy for the Weather Channel and Weather.com.

“I love this topic of national-local,” Hecht said. “Weather is a global brand built off of location.”

Hecht has brought a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis to the task of using Weather data to drive new insight and creative new ways to help brands generate more sales based on weather patterns. These insights are activated on a hyperlocal basis, because responses to weather conditions are often very different based on region.

Under Hecht, Weather’s insights go much deeper than selling snow shovels when it’s about to snow.

“We think we can help you move more salad, beer,” Hecht said. “We have made the pivot to helping them know about their brand, our whole sales force now pushing it.”

One example is an exercise Weather went through to track how weather conditions drive soup consumption in the spring. The drivers vary by market. Clouds in Chicago, humidity in Boston.

Another example was Pantene, which ran a “forecast Frizz” campaign that pushed out ads pushing anti-frizz product days in advance of humid weather.

    Another useful outlet is to join a forum where you can ask question and gather information on certain RV from those that
    already own the particular motorhome. The old art of stealth
    in carp fishing seems to be as dead as the dodo on most carp waters today and it seems to
    me that the average carp angler is so manically driven to get
    in a swim set up and cast out they have no idea it is
    far better to think like the fish and not an angler first and truly give carp the respect they deserve
    that will guarantee to give them the catches their strive so manically for.
    Be sure to vacuum floors, rugs and upholstery your pet comes
    in contact with regularly.
