Video: The Most Common Mindless Marketing Habits



Can we talk for a moment about our marketing habits?

During AdWeek DC, I addressed the topic of marketing habits with Jamie Gorski, CMO of The Bozzuto Group. In our fireside chat, we uncovered the most common mindless marketing habits (including some that will probably surprise you). Here’s a sampling:

What are some ways you’ve found to change these habits? Share your comments below.
