Pembridge predicts that offline marketing could make a comeback

Pembridge predicts that offline marketing could make a comeback

I think what Pembridge are calling a return to offline is more likely to be the continuing - and sensible - convergence between online and offline as the areas come together and more companies realise that their approach should be integrated and not in silos.

Lancashire & Blackpool Tourist Board seeks digital and PR supplier

Lancashire & Blackpool Tourist Board seeks digital and PR supplier

Always good to see people having the courage of their convictions and putting their names to comments.

You're going to see more and more of this sort of campaign in the future as companies put out a quick pitch one week and expect the agency appointed the next. I think it's brilliant - it pushes you to be quick and creative (and they aren't asking for a lot in their initial pitch document) so well done to Lancashire & Blackpool Tourist Board for this.

New social networking consultancy launched in Glasgow

New social networking consultancy launched in Glasgow

Well, as the first of the Scottish Social Media Dinners, hosted by Contently Managed, showed earlier this week, there is a desire and interest in this area, so welcome to Gordon.

Having said that, have you ever seen such a jargon/blatant play at SEO press release written?

Also, strange choice of platforms to highlight - LinkedIn, Naymz and Xing. LinkedIn, I can understand, but more business are looking at Facebook than Naymz or Xing - the three he mentions are pretty much for people wanting to boost their online CVs (at a basic level) but do little for outreach to mass market consumers.

But good luck to him, the market's big enough for diversity.
