Ask an advertising agency how much you should spend for your marketing plan and you…
(What’s on our plate, any given day. Just saw this matched our internet news stream and found it matches our day to day work. Enjoy. The ad came from a review we did of Chemical Processing’s ads for Baxter Research. Heard recently that Emerson just let go a bunch of engineers. My friend retired just in time. From the looks of the ad, I’m sorry to see they are trying to sell Artificial Intelligence. They’re better at selling Real Intelligence.)
