About

What We Do

AdPulp is a MarCom trade rag written by industry insiders. There’s an aspect of journalism here, but it’s purposefully mashed up with analysis from daily practitioners. As it should be!

No aspect of advertising is too mundane for AdPulp—we cover it all. Some want to contain the word “advertising.” We don’t. We seek to stretch the meaning so it includes all forms of marketing communications.

AdPulp can be used to monitor trends and spark ideas. That’s where the community comes in. While we work hard to bring focus to the day’s most interesting media and marketing news, the value of our offerings deepens greatly with each comment and tip we receive.

Since our launch in October 2004, we’ve been profiled and/or quoted by The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Sun Times, Media Magazine, Inc., Adweek, Savannah Morning News, Smart Computing, Digiday and The Atlantic.

“AdPulp is one of the first ad blogs that I read. I love David Burn’s stuff.” -Helen Klein Ross

“One of our favorite ad biz blogs.” –American Copywriter

“It was unexpected and really fun to get interviewed by AdPulp. Mostly because it is a tremendously prolific blog with daily updates that keep my NewsReader very busy.
