My mate Coop has been helping out the ANA - putting together some MARKETING RESOURCES for the good of the community, which is available right now for you to use.
You can see some of the insight slides above or on Slideshare.
I like the slides - they are an obvious successor to Lynette's digital bits, although the quotes are more classics that current hits.
I enjoy quotations. It's a fact, well known to those that know me well, that I think genius steals.
Quotes are a good example of stealing, which isn't imitation. To steal from Michel De Montaigne:
'I quote others only to better express myself.'
Well exactly, Michel - well put.
Anyway, the ANA stands for the Association of National Advertisers. I had never heard of them - but then I am still new to the USA.
Have you heard of them? Do you use them?
They seem a bit like ISBA in the UK, representing marketing clients. They are starting to develop and share some useful content - like these 101 introductions to new platforms like fBook - which is a nice way to say hello.
