Bought Media: Is it still relevant?

I know I'm supposed to be writing about Hofnar more and I've hardly done anything with regards to that, but a topic has been coming up quite a lot recently and that's the future of Bought Media. If you don't know what Bought Media is, it's essentially online media/marketing that is paid for. I work in Financial Services, so this Bought Media takes…

Government’s Christmas Drink Drive Campaign

I think I must be one of the few people that actual thought the Government’s Drink Drive campaign this year was a good idea.   This is the campaign where they were offering 2 for 1 on soft drinks. Soft drinks are so cheap to produce, especially the draught ones, so this probably helped them to save money, which with the current economic…

Bristol Traffic Lights

I’m not a massive fan of traffic lights. I think the whole system is dangerous and open to abuse. They’re good when being used for a pedestrian crossing, though people skip the lights so frequently at the one near my house, it’s almost safer not to rely on the little green man, keep your wits about you and cross when it’s safe rather…

Really exciting top secret project

I'm lucky enough to be involved in some really exciting Marketing/Social Media projects at the moment and the most exciting one is something I'm doing in work. Anyway, it's a really exciting idea with the opportunity for anyone and everyone to contribute and potentially win some pretty awesome prizes to boot -maybe*! I will be blogging about it when it actually happens, which, fingers…

Choosing toilet tissue – a tricky business?

I was recently charged with the arduous task of choosing toilet paper for me and my housemate. We seem to get through it rather quickly, but I have my suspicions that the boys I live with, whose bathroom is separate to ours, are stealing it! Anyway, it might be unfair to make such a scurrilous accusation in this public forum and I have…

Hofnar: Sharing Video Content

This was just a quick idea I had and while I am going to do a whole Marketing case study on Hofnar and I’m sure this idea will feature in some of the tactical initiatives, I wanted to get it down now. So, when I was skiing the other week on a Hofnar holiday, Dan, who runs Hofnar and skis with the group…

British Trains

I usually enjoy my jaunts down to London for work, but I've been commuting for over 3 hours now and the journey takes just under 2 usually. The reason for the delay? Cows on the track! The details of this have been pretty sketchy and I'm not sure of there weren't 2 separate incidents of this. In times like this, when my laptop…

Verifying my feed on Digg

I have not idea how this works, but I'm having a play to try and link my blog to Digg. Any advice welcome.<!--25deccf1bde34fc1911bd9f609f83b9f-->Connect with me:www.twitter.com/pose83pose83.posterous.com/uk.linkedin.com/in/jodarby Or pit your wits against me on Words With Friends - username: Pose83…

Facebook’s New Profile Layout

I have just signed up to the new Facebook profile layout, which is going to be rolled out to all new users from the beginning on 2011, though you can opt in now at:http://www.facebook.com/about/profile/I'm unsure about it at the moment. One of the key differences I noticed was the departure from tabbed browsing, which seemed to be an increasing design feature across many…
