  • Airbrushing is nifty
    From the "SEO isn't rocket science..." conference track: You want to airbrush the first page of google to get rid of the negative results (if there are any) about your company first (sued, failed health code, monkeys in the basement).   But how?  I don't get it.  Yet.

    Media buying and planning is a little out of my brain range, but concept wise the idea of automation is not a new one. I came here from a pretty high tech background where automation was a but a fetal buzzword YEARS ago. So of course it's interesting to me in this new-to-me industry to hear it make its rounds.

  • YES! You can use emerging media to reach 35+ consumers
    Our own Joe Mandese had his skeptic hat on when he asked panelists "every brand can't participate in a game, or have mini-movies or widgets on their site, can they? Where can we go with this?" The panelists resounded with a convincing "YES YOU CAN!"
