Because advertising is an marketing art
The world of online marketing, where HubSpot operates, though, has a reputation for being kind of grubby. Our customers include people who make a living bombarding people with email offers or gaming Google’s search algorithm or figuring out which kind of misleading subject line is most likely to trick someone into opening a message.
Because advertising and marketing is an art, the solution to each new problem or challenge should begin with a blank canvas and an open mind, not with the nervous borrowings of other people’s mediocrities. That’s precisely what ‘trends’ are — a search for something ‘safe’ — and why a reliance on them leads to oblivion.
