The views of a marketing deviant.

Sign Of The Times.

All too often, "marketing" adds unnecessary detail and blurs the message. Why say soon when you give me the actual date? I know what soon means. And now I'm thinking about the composition of your message and not thinking about your message at all.

Hmm yeah, I can just imagine the meeting on this:

"This is the sign we will be putting up"
- "Looks good, but what does 'soon' mean?"
"Hmm, you're right, we should put in a date"

-- end of meeting
