The fact that marketing and public relations are natural bedfellows is nothing new. The advent of the Internet has only served to emphasise this fact, making the lines and divisions between the two more blurry than they were before.

Yes, but... only 2% of the bosses in American businesses are women (5% in the UK). The revolution still has some way to go if women are to achieve their rightful share of the leadership roles. Not the case at Quirk eMarketing where three talented women were appointed to the board at the same time as The Economist article was published.

Although it's a critical step to the success of any marketing strategy, market research is not employed nearly enough by the majority of brands. We all assume we know what our consumers are thinking and invest considerable amounts of our budgets based on gut feel - in reality we could, quite possibly, have no idea and as a consequence, assign spend rather poorly. The idea of trawling through statistics can be intimidating and the idea of grappling with the growing mountain of online content is certainly more than most are willing to endure. 29 Apr 2009 Read more
