When it comes to iconic teen movies that are full of fun little tidbits of wisdom (and a lot of laughs), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is high on the list. Even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve likely seen the Domino’s pizza ads that recreate scenes from the movie to promote the new Domino’s Tracker. The ad features actor Joe Keery, from Netflix drama Stranger Things, in place of the original Ferris Bueller, played by Matthew Broderick. Bueller has quite a bit of wisdom for a 17-year-old, including this line he casually slings out at the beginning of the movie: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
This famous line holds a lot of truth, and can also be applied to other subjects. For example, replace “life” with “digital marketing” and it would still be a very true statement. The digital marketing industry moves at lightning speed. If you’re not paying attention, there’s a good chance you’ll miss the latest marketing trends—ones that could be invaluable to staying ahead of your competition. So how to keep up?
