Ask AdPulp

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, we’d like to start a new tradition and help give back to the community. If you’re here reading this, chances are you have a challenging job that you could use some help with from time to time. But where do you turn in times of doubt? To your boss? To your team? Hopefully, to somebody. Well, there’s no longer any need to wander the halls feeling alone and scared. Ask AdPulp anything that’s on your mind. If it’s related to marketing, we’ll do our best to answer it. And then the Q+A will be published here for all of us to rebut, challenge, build, etc. For now, please use the comments on this post to pose a question, or email your question to us at In the future, we may add a submit form to the sidebar.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
