I’ve been noticing this trend for the past few months of different blogs taking marketing lessons from various celebrities and public figures. What I didn’t realize was just how many of these articles there actually are . I did a little bit of research and picked out 10 of my favorites. If nothing else, this should be a fun list, and who knows, you might even learn a thing or two. So here we go; let’s see what these “experts” have to teach us.
Soap Operas might not exactly be your thing (or you might not want to admit it) but let’s be honest. Most of the popular ones have been running for several decades, getting millions of views every day, so they must be doing something right.

Bronx Zoo Cobra
He can break out of captivity and simultaneously tweet about it, so why shouldn’t he teach us marketing lessons?
In the end, it doesn’t really matter where the lessons are coming from. The point is that marketing is absolutely everywhere you look, and as long as you pay attention there are always opportunities to learn something new.
