RICARDO LOPEZ, EXPERT IN PERFORMANCE MARKETING
Marketing as we know it has lost credibility and become obsolete, people are tired of irresponsible and meaningless advertisements; the marketing of the future is characterized by being consistent with the beliefs and values of people, by being friendly to the environment and having a great social sense. That is why Ricardo López, performance marketing specialist, who managed the Paid Social for Candy Crush Saga, which became one of the most downloaded applications in the history of the Internet, and a worldwide success; created its own performance marketing strategy, where it not only optimizes company campaigns but also makes companies and people connect in a natural way to act from ethics, integrity and truth and thus take them to another level , where it contributes to common growth and creates a sustainable and responsible planet.
Unfortunately, today people make decisions reactively, they decide from pressure or oppression, thanks to the bombardment of ads carried out by companies especially through social networks, and they do not do so from conscience, from emotional intelligence or critical thinking that would be the right thing to do. ¨My performance Marketing does not try to demonize the system, it tries to use these platforms in our favor, and not against us, reconnecting with ourselves to make more sensible decisions¨. says Lopez; who uses platforms as a positive transformation tool so that products contribute to society, add value to the lives of others and preserve the environment, achieving a win-win and at the same time generating exponential growth for brands with successful results.
