#followfriday (or #ff) is a tradition started by Micah Baldwin (according to Mashable), whereby you name Twitter user your followers should know about. It is important to provide information about the name user, to help others decide whether to follow them. Hence, in addition to naming interesting users on Twitter, I provide a bit of background information on them in here. Enjoy!
Tom Fishburne draws cartoons. Special ones. Tom’s cartoons are about marketing. And they are very funny, too.
Tom’s cartoons cover a variety of marketing topics, from Market Research to Social Media Return on Investment. They are accompanied by a brief text discussing the challenges faced by marketers around that topic.
The cartoons are brilliant – they are funny and, yet, they make you think. Plus, if you want to licence one of them, the prices are very reasonable.
Make sure you follow @tomfishburne for a regular laugh about serious (marketing) matters.
