Branding Social Good: When Companies and Causes Play Nice

In the spirit of full disclosure I must admit that the main reason this Blog is ‘twINFO worthy’ is because I’m a sucker for anything with the word ‘promulgate’ in it.

Cause Marketing and Ethical Branding

Podcast of NPR’s Diane Rehm show about Cause Marketing which focuses on consumers being “increasingly encouraged to do good while going shopping”.

So please make the time to educate yourself on this topic as you wouldn’t want to be the only one at Happy Hour in the dark about the new lingo. You might catch someone pointing and whispering that you’re an “Old School Millennial”.
