29 Dec “There are three types of lies — lies, damn lies, and STATISTICS.”

Do you know why brands are adding video marketing to their strategy…or using more and more interactivity in their marketing?

I’ve been there … in the middle of creating a presentation and I needed some cool statistics to make your story even better. I knew I had it somewhere but could not recall WHERE….frantic search for the numbers.

As I am going through my outline, I realize I MUST a stat to insert here.

Sometimes I have come across a killer research report, but many of them require a hefty fee. So thanks but no thanks. Sometimes my source has been removed.
Occasionally when I thought I hit the lottery prize and found the PERFECT statistic, I came to realize they were published during the days “poking” someone on Facebook was “cool”. It really isn’t anymore.
