Looking back a month, the post with the most pageviews was Addicted to technology or addicted to distraction?
This article was a mix of how women use smartphones, QR codes, and if retailers are using QR codes in a smart manner. I made the assertion that the option of using them on-site may do nothing more than discount a product a customer may have already intended to purchase.
But I failed to succinctly ask the question (I tried): why discount when the customer is ready to buy? The flubbed point proves the point that a good editor is usually not you, or in this case, me.
That post only won by a thin margin, though.
Smart is the new sexy, but is this smart?, a review of the new brand marketing for newspapers, came in second by a single page view.*
The branding for newspapers, for me, fell a little flat. In other words, you can't tell people what is sexy. They tell you. And really, I don't think the campaign will work, but I'm ready to jump on the band wagon and am trying out my new slogan:
“Read my blog--stay informed--you'll look smart--everyone will think you're sexy.”
Let me know if it works.
