We’re always chasing the shiny bouncing ball.

bouncing balls trends

Many people confuse tactics and trends. Case in point: Snapchat is not a trend. It’s a social platform, a social tactic. (some of which are poorly thought out—in my opinion) Bloomberg. ON snapchat? When the demo are teenagers/young adults who use the app to….well you know what…. and share private stories they otherwise wouldn’t. Following where I’m going?

Sidenote: But Snapchat introduced “disappearing media” (that is the real trend) which is getting tons of buzz, just not sure that’s where marketers want to play. Snapchat goes against everything social is meant to be. Viral. Sharable. Enduring. Kinda sounds like the QR Code to me. Great in theory—but um, well. Well you know what happened there.

Snap! I got off topic, lets talk about marketing trends!

The day we all just all go back to being marketers is coming very soon. Smart marketers are finally demonstrating that the future of our industry is not about digital or social marketing. It’s about marketing in a digital world– we’re in it, we live it, we know it.

It’s not optional anymore. It’s not a speciality. It’s just marketing…6 best practices found below. || Read more »


Personal observations from a strategist looking inward. What an occupational hazard.

1. Culinary indulgences

I used to hate when my Facebook friends posted what they ate for breakfast & lunch. Is that really all you have to share? BORING. What used to be Insta-hide from my feed turned into Instagram IS my feed …of food (and additional mid-week trips to Whole Foods for baskets of ingredients to bring home and pretend I should be on Master Chef.) I’m not the only one guilty of visual indulgence either, hence this recent post from Mashable.

google Calico Time coverGoogle today announced Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases. Are they going to be the new Genentech? Not exactly. Not much info offered about the new venture- but Business Insider and Time reported (both long, worthy reads, if for nothing more you get the inside scoop on Google X and Sergey Brin’s definition of what a “moonshot” idea is– very interesting and 80% of what the Time piece focuses on vs. Calico).  || Read more »
