The Death of Bullshit Marketing
For many generations, the primary thrust of marketing has been to lure prospects by creating the image of an ideal result that in practice is unreachable. Now, marketing has come down from “Bullshit Mountain,” and is using digital media and social media to learn about out how people actually use products and services, what they think of them, and how to improve them. This information is then driving marketing campaigns back in the major media world. Instead of being a shot in the dark, marketing is becoming a science, not an art.
