Marketing: Past, Present, Future: Reflect On Your Strategies – Infographic

Are you you happy with your marketing efforts this year?

The holiday season is the perfect time to ask yourself these types of questions. You should take time to reflect on the past, take stock of the present, and start making predictions for the future. This applies as much to your professional life as it does to your personal one.

The pace of marketing evolution has become a runaway train, and it’s all most marketers can do just to hold on. With things moving so fast, it is more important than ever to take a step back and evaluate your progress to make sure your marketing is still on the right track.

To help you take stock of how far you’ve come and the distance you have left to go, we’ve created an infographic illustrating the past, present, and future of the marketing industry. Just as Scrooge was shown visions of these three perspectives in Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” this infographic can help you keep your marketing headed in the right direction. Lets take a look!

64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards: Who Will Win – Infographic

The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will be broadcast tonight (Sunday, Sept. 23) at 7 p.m. ET on ABC, and if you’re like us, you’re probably wondering who’s going to win.

You can guess who might be taking home the Emmy hardware tonight, but guesswork won’t be enough — we figured the best way to get a more accurate reading of the pulse of the American public would be to get a gigantic sample of TV watchers, celebrities and people in the entertainment world to tell us who they thought would emerge victorious.

To do that, we turned to digital magazine distributor Zinio, which polled an impressive 250,000 digital magazine subscribers, asking them who they thought would be the big Emmy Award winners tonight in the major categories. With such a large sample, it will be interesting to see how close these predictions are to the actual results.

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in a free second-screen experience while you watch the Emmys live, go to “Backstage Live” at Emmys.com, where you’ll see candid red carpet and backstage moments via your choice of 15 cameras. We watched it for the past couple of years, and even though that multitude of cameras won’t show you what’s happening on stage at the awards ceremony — you have live television to do that for you — it’s quite entertaining and revealing, a perfect supplement to give you a comprehensive overview of the proceedings.

Enjoy the Emmys, and may the best show win! Which show or actor do you think has a lock on an Emmy tonight?

How did it go with the 2011 predictions?

Lack of Work @Wall Street

business woman While checking the news this morning I ran into the article below. I always wondered how the experts on Wall Street are working and how they come to their predictions, forecasts and conclusions. I think I got the idea now. It would be cool if someone at CRT could tell me what happens on a Monday the 16th. With that info we all could take action today and have a good day at the beginning of the week, right?

In fairness, the guys at CRT acknowledged that there is nothing “fundamental” behind this. I am now afraid that their job might be in jeopardy, if their is nothing else to discover and write. Well, on the other hand, what would I comment about?
