I have my moments every now and then.  Here are some my own thoughts/sayings/trends, feel free to use them if they help you get a point across.

Trends

TATT – Time, Attention, Trust and Transparency.  The key factors that all businesses now need to address to breakthrough in today’s changing world.

B2ME Marketing - This describes the fusion between B2B and B2C marketing which I believe is blending into new individualised/personalised marketing which optimises moments.

Real-actionships – Gen X using social media to drive on-line social media generated relationships to off-line human to human relationships.

Crowd-Forcing – Inspired by Crowd-sourcing.  The crowd pulling together to pressurise/threaten brands through negative on-line chatter.
