MY PASSIONS
MY WORDS

I’m quite sure this comes from my mind… Blogs!

Marketing & communication is not simple neither complicated. My blogs are about anything that is related to offline and online marketing & communication, from strategic point of view. Of course, with an omni-channel setting in mind and written as simple as possible. This can be my own opinion and vision, but also comments on various subjects or readings taken from other sources.

By writing blogs and reading articles I learn from other people´s views, visions, opinions and knowledge. At the same time I hope the same happens to other people who come across my website or articles. Go ahead and use my articles freely and as much as possible. However, the credits are mine

There’s more between the game of golf and marketing

Picture this: you’re standing in the clubhouse of a nicely groomed infamous golf course, overlooking the slopes and fairways, the perfect greens, admiring the challenges offered by bunkers, trees and the rough. All you can think of is, how will I be able to fight the elements, play the game and win at the end of the day.

In search of excellence, for marketing too!

In search of excellence, ook voor marketing en communicatie! In search of excellence… Geen idee hoe ik erbij kwam, maar een aantal weken geleden dacht ik terug aan mijn studietijd in de VS. Een mooie tijd, die ik overduidelijk niet vergeten ben. Niet alleen de leuke hoogtepunten kwamen naar boven,Continue reading

Content creation – One size fits all, or ‘situation’ driven?

Content creation – One size fits all, or ‘situation’ driven? I know how you can personalize messages in e-mail, direct mail or even on a website by using click, web visit or buying behaviour, or anything related to this.

Social power for the marketeer!

My apologies beforehand, as I seem to stick with social marketing at the moment. But then again, it’s hot, it’s happening and you can’t avoid it. And as pointed out by Marketing Facts in their article “Consumenten zijn social media moe” (sorry, it’s in Dutch, but it is based on Gartner’s research “Gartner Survey HighlightsContinue reading

I like facts!

Yes, I admit it, I like facts! That makes me a curious marketeer, in a healthy way. This was already apparent when I read the encyclopedia as a kid. Not just to know something, I just read it like a reading book. I still have the urge to read everything close to me. Anyway, IContinue reading

The pee pee of social media

I recently came across this overview of ‘all’ social media channels more or less available to the world wide web now. At first I considered it a funny overview stating the general belief of non-believers. Later, when I reviewed the image and had my mind set on it, I could see the message. Before I continue with myContinue reading
