I finally understand why the English Bulldog is the unofficially adopted mascot of the US Marines. It’s not because Bullies are brave, aggressive, or particularly fierce (actually they are the completely opposite). It’s because of their uncanny faithfulness.

Black Mirror is a haunting anthology television series that takes a deeper look into the many ways in which technology has affected our lives–or could in the near future. Rather than demonize technologies such as virtual reality or social media, it takes an introspective look into how the human condition is affected by these technological advances.
So, if you’re a business owner or are part of a marketing team, it is important to heed the lessons that can be taken from this series.
Security is serious business and we want our customers to have their marketing investments protected from malicious actors. That’s why we’ve decided to upgrade all customers with websites maintained by RetroMotion to use SSL at no cost.
It’s not the car’s fault the tires are bald.
You drive like Mario Andretti on your morning commute and race around town every day. You don’t fill up, you don’t change your oil. In fact, you don’t do anything that remotely resembles car maintenance. Ever. Well, guess what, turkey? Your car is going to run out of gas!
If you really were Mario Andretti, you’d know that you have to have one of the best crew pits in the history of IndyCar racing in order to drive your car hard on a daily basis and not have problems.
Your social media is the same way. That’s why our next Marketing Confession is a gas.
As one of the fastest-growing social media platforms available today, Instagram is the secret weapon you need to market your business. As Weekend Update’s New York City correspondent Stefon would say: “This place has everything”–meticulously edited selfies, family ski trip photos, political puppy memes, and, like on any media platform, advertisements.
It’s easy to assume that your business doesn’t need Instagram to advance its marketing and brand awareness. Selfies and sales don’t always go hand-in-hand, but lots of companies have been able to make Instagram work for them.
It’s Olympics season, and the world is looking to Rio for a (virtual) front row seat to see the literal superhuman athletes competing in the 2016 Summer Olympics. We, as a world of nations, are more than ready to watch in awe from our couches and scarcely-used yoga mats as competitors show us what training, hard work, and inspiration really looks like.
With so many other small (and, of course, big) businesses investing in digital marketing, it can feel impossible to compete with others in your industry. If anything, it becomes easy to get uninspired. With expenses and employees, marketing can start to feel like the fat on the meat of your company.
The fact is, marketing is a seriously worthy investment. Like those Olympic gymnasts stretching and practicing for years to turn their bodies into pretzels, sometimes you need to invest in your dreams.
