It isn’t unusual to have no savings at 40, and it may become even more common in future. People are under a lot of financial pressure right now, and building wealth for retirement may seem a relatively low priority.

Today, while there are more businesses to compete with and more noise for consumers to sort through, there are also many more ways to reach customers and secure a sale.

Even back in the early 1950s, marketing specialists knew that growth would lead to a need for more refined strategies and a guide of some sort to help businesses ensure they were able to go beyond just their idea and begin making actual sales. Luckily for those responsible for marketing today, that knowledge became something that is now widely used for planning, evaluating, and revising the activities of businesses around the world.

The campaign is all about cutting away from the daily routine and draws from the core values that have inspired Cutwater since the brand’s very beginning

Cutwater Spirits, the most awarded canned cocktail brand in the US, releases its “Cut Out With Cutwater” ad campaign with a TV commercial airing on game day, digital takeovers, and a social media series featuring actress Emily Hampshire, renowned for her role as Stevie Budd on Schitt’s Creek and “longtime Cut-Out enthusiast.”

Approachable with a distinctly SoCal aesthetic, the campaign is all about cutting away from the daily routine and draws from the core values that have inspired Cutwater since the brand’s very beginning. As a former brewer familiar with the canned format, Cutwater Spirits’ Co-Founder and Master Distiller, Yuseff Cherney came up with the idea to take his award-winning spirits and create high-quality canned cocktails so they could be enjoyed anywhere.
