Stuck in the middle
Hello! Today, I’m curating some of my favourite things from the internet/ app world! Utilities, educational resources… whatever I’ve found, fancied and believe is worth a share!
If you’re an aspiring digital marketer but you haven’t a clue, Google Primer would be a great place to start. Offering several lessons across multiple categories such as advertising, content, measurement and strategy. The interface is super easy to use and allows you to flip through lesson cards, ending every lesson with a quick quiz or mini practice session. Once a lesson is completed, the app automatically marks it as such so you don’t have to keep track.
Another piece of art from the house of Google (I promise they pay me no royalties, they’re just THAT good). AutoDraw makes even the worst doodler into an artist. You can draw the worst doodle of a cat and Google will use machine learning to make it into something that actually resembles one!
While we’re on the subject of art, Creative Criminals is an incredible aggregation of the best creative ideas from across the world. Three friends run the blog together, curating a fantastic selection of creative advertisements from around the world. A great source of inspiration for those struggling with creative blocks!
Free Stock Images
What’s a nice curation without calling out another nice curation? Well known marketer Jeff Bullas’ blog has put together this incredible list of sites that offer free, high quality stock images. Now instead of searching for free clipart and photos, you can browse a wide selection of images for every occasion.
What the f*** is my social media strategy
You know how you’re always looking for that EXACT cool sounding sentence to define your PR/ social media strategy? Or you’re trying to write a media statement but somehow you end up with a meaningless string of words? Yes, THAT. This site gives you SO MANY of those, you won’t have to look much further. On a serious note, its true aim is to at call out all the lame b***s**** marketers/ brands put out by way of mission statements and what not. This is nice place to visit when you feel like you’re headed down that hellish path of meaninglessness… It tells you what NOT to write!
