you get what you pay for
Every week now there seems to be another social media marketing disaster, usually revolving around the hijacking of the campaign hashtag or - as in the case of the lamentable #freshinourmemories debacle most recently - the hijacking of a 'branded' meme gene...

the cult of authenticity [five minutes]
Sorry young millennials. You are not special. Your old Gen X mums and dads were just as confused as you, in their day. 'Ultimately, the uneasy relationship The Stranglers had with the punk scene reflected the need that the various protagonists within the mo...

if it's not love, then it's the bomb that will bring us together
For a time during World War II, the chances of a member of US bomber crews actually making it back from any given mission, were on the side of slim. The nature of the work meant that bombers were out for a long time, they were massive cumbersome planes visi...

end of an ear
Thanks and festive greetings to everyone who has read, commented, shared in 2014. See you after the break for more self-delusion, confabulation and vitriol.

presenter's toolkit
I don't normally do these 'lifehack' kind of posts, and there's no danger of this turning into any kind of self-help blog. [On occasions when I've had to talk to students and suchlike I'm inclined to respond to career advice type questions with something al...

correct planning
In 1968, Stanley Pollitt, along with Martin
Boase and Gabe Massimi, started the agency Boase Massimi Pollitt. The three of them had worked at Interpublic
agency Pritchard Wood Partners. (No relation, as far as I know, btw) BMP emerged after the trio had
un-...
'The account planner is that member of the agency's team who is the expert, through background, training, experience, and attitudes, at working with information and getting it used - not just marketing research but all the information available to help solve a client's advertising problems'.

the return of nietzsche marketing [ #dashbutton edition]
We conducted a small survey on supermarket shopping behaviour using the agency staff as our sample group of around 50. It was relatively unscientific, however, the aim was to crudely test one particular covert thought. We simply asked our respondents if the...

norman whitfield and barrett strong are here to make everything right that's wrong
Our friend @MarkSareff had a pop at the growing tendency for some sections of the marketing world to be bewitched by 'neurobollocks' in a post over on Linked in . And rightly so. The idea that individual human brains, studied in isolation can predict future...

never tell anyone outside the agency what you're thinking
At the beginning of 'The Godfather' , just before the scene of Don Vito Corleone's daughter Connie's wedding, Santino 'Sonny' Corleone is in a clandestine meeting with Virgil 'The Turk' Sollozzo in which they discuss a potential opportunity for the Corleone...

The Dunning-Kruger Peak of Advertising
You may be familiar with the case of one McArthur
Wheeler. Wheeler was a man who, in 1995, proceeded
to rob two banks in Pittsburg, in broad daylight, using no other method to
avoid detection other than covering his face with  lemon  juice. As lemon juice i...
The results were published in 1999 and henceforth the phenomenon - If you're incompetent, you can't know you're incompetent because the skills you need to produce a right answer are exactly the skills you lack in order to know what a right answer is - became known as the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

bring the noise (or...why quiet fixing is the enemy within)
In any given week there’s no shortage of
writing on ‘the new agency model’ or ‘why advertising is broken and how to fix
it’ . I’ve no wish to add to this number. What this post aims to outline is a common
problem in agencies of all flavours – new model or o...
Nor is it in anyway connected to marketing 3.0, purpose before profit or how branded communities of millenials are demanding marketing from the 'the spirit' and psychic satisfaction (© Philip Kotler - Marketing 3.0 and I am not joking). No, the biggest problem in agencies is when people quietly, ...

sincerity is bullshit
‘Rather
than seeking primarily to arrive at accurate representations of a common world,
the individual turns toward trying to provide honest representations of
himself. It is
as though he decides that since it makes no sense to try to be true to the facts,
