Marketing & Music
The name of this website dates back to 1999, back when your email was tied to your ISP provider. Remember those days? Change your internet access provider… change your email… unless you had AOL, which I wasn’t a fan of. So I bought my own domain based on my vocation (marketing) and my passion (music).
Though I’ve only done a little bit of music-focused marketing, I’m still just as passionate about marketing and music. Here are a few web sites and newsletters that I enjoy for each:
American Marketing Association – I’ve gotten so much value from my membership, going all the way back to college. Get involved with your local chapter!
Morning News Beat – A great daily newsletter for anyone in the food & beverage industry
Springwise – a great source of inspiration
Trendwatching – Essential trend site and newsletter
The Hub – Great feature-length articles
Cool News from The Hub – A few short articles each day that provide insight into consumer behavior and trends
