Even though I have extensive experience in global marketing, I still found detail after detail that I did not know–everything from address formats around the world to how to work overseas without a D-U-N-S number. Frequent readers know that most of my marketing experience is B2B rather than B2C, and that virtually everything I do is data driven. Wrong. Like this post?

Why don’t more marketers use keyword research?


Some marketers don’t use keywords in their work because their companies don’t have keyword governance, and they are afraid of internal competition.

Influencer outreach is more PR than marketing or advertising


Remember, if your campaign doesn’t check all the boxes of being a publicity, PR, or buzz campaign, it won’t work as an earned media campaign. What’s more, because there have been so many bad actors in the influencer marketing space, it’s quickly becoming perceived as a cash-only, pay-per-post, payola game. Payola, baby!
