These are issues that anyone who is considering a career in marketing should be thinking about – his articles cover important topics which affect the whole industry.

London School of Marketing’s new blog post takes an in-depth look at the work of its corporate spokesman, Jacques de Cock, who has explored the effectiveness of various campaigns in some of his recent articles. The post explores the themes of a few of Jacques’ articles, such as his recent piece about the use of dead celebrities in ad campaigns.

Gimhani Gunasinghe, head of the school’s marketing department, said: “Jacques’ articles are always thought-provoking and we’re very glad to have him as our corporate spokesman.

“His article about dead celebrities, for example, raised some interesting questions about Max Factor’s decision to use Marilyn Monroe in a campaign which was clearly targeted at a young demographic.”

The blog post looks at a number of other articles by Jacques, including his critique of PG Tip’s controversial decision to reduce the size of their teabags, and Cadbury’s decision to quietly reduce the number of Crème Eggs in a box from six to five.

Gimhani continued: “Jacques’ articles highlight the dangers of failing to meet customers’ expectations. They also explore other key marketing themes; such as using honesty in social media, brand placement in major films, and how to generate excitement through non-traditional marketing methods.”

“These are issues that anyone who is considering a career in marketing should be thinking about – his articles cover important topics which affect the whole industry.”
