Marketing officers at businesses in many different industries are beginning to embrace automation. A total of 14 percent of all marketing teams plan to implement marketing automation this year [2016], and 63 percent of all current users plan to increase what they spend on their marketing automation. Some people assume automation makes you look less...
If repeat business is your goal, good customer service is essential. According to a recent survey, one bad customer service call will send most customers away permanently. Since repeat customers bring in more money than new customers on average, it’s important that businesses find ways to nurture their existing buyers and this includes the customer...
Research, author expertise and content length are all highly important in determining whether content is quality. It can be hard to recognize quality – whether it’s a product or content on the Internet. By definition, quality means “native excellence or superiority,” but what quality content looks like can be subjective and hard to determine. There are...
Do you think some feature films may be crowdsourced someday? I got to thinking it may be possible after checking out a contest that crowdsourced the best commercials made by independent filmmakers. MOFILM runs a series of competitions connected to festivals around the world, from Cannes to Rio. Nascent filmmakers choose one of the sponsors...
We’ve all been witness to a bad commercial before. How about those darned class action lawsuit ads that are always popping up during my Jeopardy! program. They’re horrible but I’ve gotten somewhat immune to viewing them. Here are some truly awful local TV ad spots. I’d doubt if it wasn’t for YouTube and the internets...

They offer free food to anyone over 350 lbs, they serve heart stopping meals with no remorse, their waitresses are...
I can’t decide whether or not this overlay ad is strikingly poignant or horrifically ironic. It’s very eerie sometimes to see how particular and relevant these ads can be.  I guess in the most blatant way, anyone that would be listening to the rubbish (and a live version nonetheless) might just be in need of a rehab...
After watching this year’s Super Bowl and of course the commercials, it became abundantly clear how much times and advertising has changed.
