Bidding Fond Farewell to BtoB Magazine

Paul Gillin

I was sad to learn this week that BtoB magazine , which has existed under various brands for nearly 100 years, will be swallowed by Advertising Age at the end of the year. I have worked with BtoB for nearly seven years, publishing about 120 columns and articles during that time. The staff has always been a joy to work with, and BtoB has played a critical role in my own education about the transformation of media. My association with BtoB began as a happy accident.

In a BtoB test, Facebook beat LinkedIn and Twitter when measuring response to targeted ads (IT hardware product). It's great to be home after a very productive trip to the Northeast.

Bulls, Bears, Bernanke and BtoB Lead Generation

In February of 2010, Ben Bernanke began his second term as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. That same year he said: "I wish I'd been omniscient and seen the crisis coming" (referring to the recession he predicted would not occur).
