  • How I imagined my first day at this ad agency and how it went down couldn’t have been more different and yet, in the midst of all of it I got to witness something pretty incredible. Ever seen one of those “Avengers” movies? It was kind of like that. Digital bad asses uniting to prevent […]

  • We give out a lot of free advertising advice on this blog. It’s mostly because we like making ourselves sound smart and, thus, feel important. We are a vain, gross group of people. (But don’t let that put you off if you’re a potential client. Our vanity is rooted in deep-seated insecurity, which forces us […]

  • I going to be very blunt and honest. I don’t care that you netted over $1 million in sales this year. I don’t care that you opened up 50 new stores around Texas. I don’t care about the new downtown office you just opened. What I do care about is your story and the purpose […]

  • Google searches are revealing. To creative agencies, to everyone. They’re the questions you are too embarrassed to ask your friends… or anyone. Maybe even the doctor.

  • How many times this week have you accepted, declined, or maybe’d a calendar invite? How tired are you of being “interested” on Facebook for yet another damn event marketing thing with some business and a bar in the lamest attempt at branding possible? How many Eventbrites did you RSVP for and actually attend? Is the […]

  • Look at you, you’ve done it again. Another weekend spent binge watching some show involving dragons, mid-century English drama, a questionable amount of cybernetic violence, dystopian nightmares, or telekinetic tweens who eat Eggos. All whilst perusing some bottomless pit of a dating app. Our holy trinity of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime knows us better […]

  • What Motivates You? I’ve always been fascinated by what motivates people to wake up in the morning. Some people want a job and security. Some people want to do what they are passionate about.

  • Here’s the thing about creatives: they’re weird as hell. Do you really want to hire your own in-house digital marketing team and have a bunch of crazy, sensitive art school kids running around your office? People you have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on in salaries, benefits, equipment, PTO, and who knows what […]

  • It happened. Facebook armageddon arrived for brands, media, advertising agencies, marketing firms, and businesses. Sadly, though, there’s no team of scrappy oil drillers lead by a world weary, grizzled, gravel-voiced Bruce Willis to nuke the life destroying asteroid that is Mark Zuckerberg’s whims.

  • There’s a conversation you’d probably overhear at 8:34 A.M. on a wet Tuesday morning in a lightly prom-stained ballroom at a suburban Holiday Inn, over a stale danish and cup of crap coffee. Scrolling through LinkedIn — especially if you’re connected to the advertising agency or marketing world — is a lot like that. It […]
