I asked my marketing friends what they wanted for Christmas this year. I specified that it had to be something you could buy, not something like peace on earth (ahem, Joshua). It’s not too late (almost) to gift them some of these wishes!
When I was assembling this list I felt how much respect and friendship is in this group. There is my good friend Paul who started a lot of what I do, as well as some I don’t know as well and all in between. What great people! They are my friends who when I asked, responded. Isn’t that what social media is all about? When you do ask and there is trust, people respond.
Oh and I want a new blog design and an elliptical for Christmas.
Thank you so much to everyone who responded. Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you get your wishes!

I believe mastering the art of video should be on every marketer’s Christmas list. The raw emotional power that comes from video is not to be underestimated and can be an effective and persuasive marketing tool. I state this because my list is thousands of dollars of pure video equipment.Iwas asked by the university to think of marketing tools that will best benefit the students. IMHO video gadgetry that tells and enhances your business story is worth the investment.

I want a simple video studio in my basement with a few decent backdrops so I can record more video for YouTube. I’ve tried creating this myself and just can’t make it work as well as I’d like. While we’re at it, how about a high school kid to edit all those videos I’d be cranking out?
There you have it. If you are a marketer with Christmas wishes, please add yours in the comments!
