Increase Your Blog Traffic By Billions Of Percentages

No WAIT! Don’t click away. Ok, so I’m not really going to tell you how to increase your blog traffic by billions of percentages. If I knew how to do that, this wouldn’t be We Work For Cheese, this would be We Work For Book Deals or We Work For Movie Rights. But it’s not. […]

Don’t Do This At Work

Does your company have a marketing department? Good, then listen up. If you’re collaborating with marketing, do not use certain marketing terms if you don’t know what they mean, if you’re not sure what they mean, or if you’re using it ’cause all the cool kids are. Seriously. I’m not joking. Don’t do it. Marketing […]

Is It Real Or Is It Marketing?

I saw this commercial last night and immediately thought of Mike and his new cat, Dobson. You know, the cat he made me listen to on the phone. At least Dobson doesn’t spell his name with a “ph”. And yes, this will be the last freaking cat post you’ll find here on WWFC.

This Just In: Overeating Fatty Over-Processed Foods With Little-To-No Nutritional Value Makes You Fat

Really? Are they really going to make me state the obvious? It seems they are. I just read this article in Forbes about how the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has decided to raise public awareness regarding cheese and how it turns you into this: The ads went up in Albany, New York, where […]

They Don’t Call Them Deviled Eggs For Nothing

  So, how were your holidays? If you’re like me… hey, what’s with the panicked look and passionate protests?! Sheesh. I was joking about wearing the boots with pajamas, you know. Sort of. Whatever. Look, if your holidays were anything like mine (There, feel better? Sigh.), it was probably a crazy busy and stressful time. […]

Did I Mention I’m On Twitter?

So, I’m on Twitter a lot, for work. Yes, really. For work. I admit, it took me a little while to figure out how to Tweet. But I’m getting the hang of it. I even downloaded TweetDeck so I could see who’s on Twitter. For the Twitter-challenged among you, let me explain. TweetDeck is a […]

I’m Not Ignoring You, I’m Just Stupid

Do you Twitter? I tweeted for the first time this week, for work. I actually Googled “how to tweet” to figure it out. Yes, I’m that stupid. But I’m not alone. On a monthly basis, there are 1,830,000 global searches for “how to tweet“.  Global searches, monthly. That’s a lot of people without a clue […]

Resume Tips or Résumé Tips or Resumé Tips

I was recently laid off from my job as Marketing Manager, and the first thing I did, after eating 10 litres of Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream upon realizing I have to find a job, was look over my résumé. I spell résumé with the accents because: It’s the right way to spell it I […]

We’ll Always Have Vodka

You ever notice how sometimes a certain commercial makes you think of someone? I recently saw a vodka commercial that had me saying “OMG! OMG!”. Mind you, I always think of particular people when I see ads for vodka. When I see a Smirnoff ad, I think of co-blogger Mike. About a million years ago, […]

Magic And My Favourite Commercial

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Capitol One slogan “What’s in your wallet”.  I posted a couple of the company’s commercials starring David Spade which are hysterically funny, and mentioned that I wasn’t a huge fan of the rampaging Vikings they also use in their commercials. CardioGirl asked the following questions: “…Remember the […]

I Read A Book In Less Than A Day. Yes, It Has Pictures.

I picked up the book $ELLEBRITY by George Lois on sale for $10. I knew a little bit about the man, very little really, just that he’s been a big time ad exec since the 1950’s. I figured, what the hell!  I was on vacation, I had time and it was only 10 bucks! Plus, […]

What Message Do You Want To Send?

Even though I’ve only been at it for 4 years, I love working in marketing. Actually, I love it when it’s done properly. Unfortunately, I’ve only ever worked for one organization that, in my humble opinion, did it properly. The problem is, marketing is subjective. It isn’t subjective in theory, but it is in reality.
