I wrote a piece about ‘Agile Marketing’ a while back. It included links to all sorts of useful resources. But if I was to explain Agile Marketing in a nutshell then this video from Waterstones would fit the bill – it’s a spoof of Amazon’s delivery by drone vision … smart guerilla marketing which has been carefully planned and tested. Amateurish this isn’t.
