EP 247: Using Humor in Your Marketing w/Tom Fishburne
For the last 15 years, Tom Fishburne has been poking fun at the marketing industry and for the first time he has compiled over 200 of his favorite comics and put them into a book.
“Your Ad Ignored Here: Cartoons from 15 Years of Marketing, Business, and Doodling in Meetings” has captured so many of our industries biggest moments and brought a little humor to the situation.
We talk to Tom in this episode about his background in marketing and why he started to draw cartoons about the marketing industry instead of a wider audience.
If you want to win a free copy of Tom’s new book, we are giving away a free book to the person who gives us the best caption for this comic panel:
