B2B Humor Zings Marketing and Advertising Inanities

NEW YORK, NY -- 11/07/2005 -- Cincom's award-winning Expert Access e-zine provides some hilarious and irreverent B2B humor and objective real-world business advice on how to win in today's complex sales environment with its latest feature article titled " Marketing and Advertising Donkeys ... Shoot 'Em If You Got 'Em."

In an interview with award-winning advertising, marketing and creative impresario, Ken Sutherland, who's won numerous awards for marketing, advertising, and music, including: four Clios, more than 300 Gold Addys, and the London International Advertising Award, you travel into the weird, creative world of marketing and advertising, get behind the processes, into the thinking, learn how to avoid or at least make some sense of the marketing and advertising side of the complex sale and best of all, see the screw-ups.

It's one in a remarkable string of continuing "Shoot the Donkey" stories that provide a unique, often tongue-in-cheek, irreverent look at the current complex sales and business environment.

The "Shoot the Donkey" stories focus on remarkable people who take decisive actions to fulfill their mission whatever it is, in their life of business or business of life.
