But if we have one last Christmas wish at SO, it’s that you’ll be able to do the same.

Why Brexit is the Perfect Marketing Opportunity

July 5, 2016 / Marketing, News /

Brexit Strategy

It’s been a full week since the UK historically voted to leave the European Union, and what a turbulent time it’s been; the only thing to fall quicker than the pound was Jeremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, and people around the nation were utterly shocked at just how many of their Facebook friends revealed themselves to be closet specialists in economics and foreign policy (who knew?). Regardless of how you fall on the Brexit debate, it’s fair to say it caused quite a stir, but you shouldn’t let the news affect your marketing plan, and here’s why. Continue Reading →
