[Marketing] A Blog is Exactly What We Wish It to Be
come from a traditional marketing and communications background, where everything is set in stone and the relationship to the sale is a true and trusted path. When I first started blogging “seriously”, it was a continuation of a public relations blog that I had, back in my early solo consultancy days. The goal was simple – to share thoughts and ideas on social media and where that fit in the business world. And you know, perhaps at that time it was okay to write about things that way. But everything’s fluid – we need to keep moving. Thankfully, that’s worked so far.

If you’re an ad agency, you have a far better chance of having an article seen that showcases the ten best commercials of the year rather than a simple case study that features your own work.

Secondly, it means marketers simply must focus on the people in the marketplace. Gladly. There’s value in understanding conventional wisdom—it often give you a clue on what not to do.
