What's all this about new marketing?
 

Old style marketing is having a hard time. Traditional PR struggles to make an impact, telesales puts off more people than it converts, advertising costs more than it's worth.

And the phrase ‘new marketing’ is popping up everywhere. You can’t surf the net for more than five minutes before tripping over references to new marketing, or content marketing, or permission marketing, or inbound marketing.  

It can be confusing, so we thought we’d give you our take on it. We’ve untangled some of the jargon, so you know what’s what, and we’ve drawn a line in the sand to show you where we stand. 


Basically, we think it’s a good thing - it gets a thumbs up from us.
