What are the latest marketing trends? If you work in marketing and/or advertising, and don’t care about the answer to this question you are either Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius, or dumber than a box of Kardashians. Marketing techniques in 2018 are more complex and more effective than ever.

Those chatty bots


Artificial intelligence has all the answers, when it comes to customer service, and never takes a potty break. So unleash an army of chatbots on your unsuspecting customers to become the next General Skarr of the marketing world. (So I like Cartoon Network, so sue me!)

Growth hack is your friend


And no, it’s not a fungus infection like ringworm. It’s got something to do with lots of different stuff — so just use the term all the time to impress your boss, who is dumber than two boxes of Kardashians anyways.


User sourced content

Quote your customers extensively to bring authority and believability to your content. And if your customers won’t say anything then quote some ancient Roman for a classy look. After all, “barba tenus sapientes.”
