Advertising is a simple business. Of course, we don’t want anyone to know that. It might impact our fees.
Note, I did not say what we do is easy. I said we’re in a simple business, as opposed to something like politics or medicine.
The Ad Contrarian, for one, is pissed that “the advertising business is now in the hands of complicators.”
Web metrics maniacs have been measuring every visit, every click, every time we blow our nose or wipe our ass. They know what we do and where we live and where we go.
Now they need to tell us what are the principles? What are the simple truths? What do we need to know?
