‘Stuff’ Marketers Say

Last week hundreds of marketers descended on Orlando for the Association of National Advertisers’ annual conference, the theme of which was “Masters of Marketing.”

As with any ad industry conference, buzzwords and empty phrases were bandied about all over the place. Judging from the tweets, this one was particularly rife. Here’s some of the comments that left Digiday’s editors scratching their heads the most.
