April (Fools)


I know it has been a while since I last posted something and I apologize for that. I have been extremely busy since I lasted said anything on this blog.

For one thing, work has been really busy lately. It seems 2009 is shaping up to be the year of channel marketing. Although channel activity is always important when it comes to marketing, the recent economic downturns seems to have forced lots of company's to "rethink" the strategic importance channel marketing. I suppose this comes from the fact that when the (world) economy was booming, demand was everywhere. Now that it has shrunk, people are desperate to get in front of customers and now have the time (or will) to invest resources into ANY channel that may boost revenue.

The other thing is that I have been pretty heavy into school for two reasons. The first is that I am almost done and so I am pretty excited about finishing but at the same time, really nervous because I feel I have worked really hard to get his degree finished and don't want anything to screw it up. The second reason is that I chose to do an export plan project by myself and ended up having to crank out over 3000 words and this ended up being on evenings and weekends... oh, and I had an exam in the middle of all that... and oh yeah, another esssay that came in just over 2000 words... and oh yeah, more classes.

So.... hang tight. I'm going to be back really soon posting... I promise.
