Digital marketing is a funny funny business. Oh sure it might not seem like it from the outside, but digital marketers know how to laugh - especially at themselves. There are a few places out there that really get us and do an amazing job at keeping all of us from taking ourselves too seriously. I want to share some of my favorites and hopefully give you a chuckle as well.
Started by @eloi_casali, @matthopson and @semantiks, this tumblr aggregates memes about our favorite paid search topics. Whether it's The Most Interesting Man in the World explaining how to best track your efforts, ridiculously photogenic guy sharing the secret to success on the Google Display Network or Zoidberg mocking your ad rotation methods, this site will bring the laughs and some PPC tips.
Every week Adexchanger posts a comic on the latest industry news, with an editorial spin. Often starring the superhero bearing the site's name, these strips lampoon the deals and buzzwords that we read in headlines during the week.
This Advertising Life
The proliferation of animated gif tumbrs has reached the advertising world. While not specifically about digital marketing, many of these quick images have the ability to hit exactly how creatives and others feel in situations like "after working the weekend before a big pitch" or "when I crack a joke during a brainstorm session and nobody laughs".
These are just a few of the funny and distracting sites out there for our industry. Did I miss any of your favorites? Let us know and we'll include them next time.
