Advertising Is Dead, Long Live Advertising

Subscribe on iTunes When was the last time you watched an entire television ad…. While watching live TV? If you’re like a majority of people in this world, you rarely watch TV live.

Tell Us A Little About You

Quote of the Day

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”

– Thomas J. Watson
