Marketing and Business Mavens' blog

Welcome to the TafeSA Marketing and Business Maven blog!

Our blog is designed to have input from our lecturing staff (our mavens), our students (mavenettes) and any other marketing and business mavens who would like to contribute! Over time you will meet our group of mavens.

What is a maven you ask?  Well it’s an expert (who we think is also continuously learning) and our students are on their educational journey to becoming experts in the field of marketing and business, so they are our mavenettes.

If you hear of some interesting articles, let us know as we will share these.  We will also share with you some extraordinary advertisements, new concepts in marketing and business and even the occasional marketing disaster that we can all learn from.

Our team attended the Adelaide MICON (Marketing and Ideas Conference recently and we were blown away! Social media strategic planning was a focus for the week, along with some great ads and there were plenty of photos of the Old Spice model but surprisingly no mention of 50 Shades of Gray! Gamification was a new concept that was also presented which also had us in a spin..check this ad out…

This is the latest concept in marketing creating the ultimate PTAT! (People talking about this!)

Question: What are your favourite advertisements and why?
