Talking Points
January 2019

Don’t look now, but here come the holidays! Yes, it’s November already, and you know what that means—shorter days, frosty rooftops, festive family gatherings, and another heapin’ helping of Talking Points.

So, let’s dive right in, starting with this month’s Trending Topics. We look at how we can do something special this holiday season by giving back to the one thing that has given us all so much—our planet.

The New Developments article goes straight for the funny bone. We dissect one particularly amusing email and examine how you can use similar tactics to inject a little humor into your own marketing.

Then we close out the issue with something even more hilarious—out-of-office responses. Parting Shot features the coy marketing of Ryan Reynolds and his cleverly written auto-responses for Aviation Gin.

Sometimes the thing we need most during all the holiday stress is a good laugh, and we hope this issue of Talking Points does the trick. We wish you a terrific start to your holidays, and we’ll be back next year with a few more marketing gifts in January.
