Whose trend is it anyway?

So, January is only just over and the fridge light has already shone shame on your resolution quitter-face. But you're not alone and you know this because the chatter on the trip for double chocolate chip fudge brownies is now taken up by the third best thing to discuss among industry mates: trends.

Content marketing: What could possibly go wrong?

If you've heard the term 'Content Marketing Matters Most' and felt your jaw slack with the lack of enthusiasm, you are not alone. If you felt this way because of how this content generally inundates your day and leaves you overcome with an acute case of the discombobulations - you are not alone.

Social media making you sick?

We at Help For Hemorrhoids hope you're sitting happy in the traffic. Like our page and tell us about the worst sit-in you've ever sat-in. This is not social media. This is stupid.

Would the real copywriter please stand up?

In a world of SEO (dead or not) and the immediacy of content-to-consumer needed, there seems to be more copy needed than copywriters out there. Never fear, for an article titled How to get high-performance sales copy without hiring a copywriter hit the blogosphere recently.

Who do you think you are?

What's your take on some of the fancy-pants titles doing the rounds on the circuit currently? Happiness Advocate. Social Media Trailblazer. Head Cheese. Digital Dynamo. Copy Cruncher. I can't decide.

Advertising can be so gay

It really is a fine time to be gay. The world's getting its rainbow on more than ever despite some insistent folks who aren't that happy about it.

I have a bone to pick with advertising arrogance

I was too young to remember what advertising was like in South Africa in the dark ages (Apartheid). I can only assume the emerging markets were all but disregarded and were considered a non-event when it came to buying power.
