Seven Magazine: Digital Ads Suck & Google is an Old Business

The new model of advertising and branding demands that companies improve public life and satisfy the needs of our higher sacred selves.

Knock, and it will be opened to you.
~ Matthew 7:7

Ad Spending

Google has more revenue than all U.S. print newspapers and magazines combined.
Yet direct mail is still the biggest single direct marketing channel, worth around $45 billion a year in the US alone. But it’s increasingly clear that printed marketing communications work best when used in conjunction with digital channels such as email, personalized web pages (PURLs), database marketing, and mobile elements.

In the modern era of presidential politics, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a bigger margin than any other candidate that lost the electoral college. Donald Trump won the presidency by 74 electoral votes while losing the nationwide vote to Clinton by 2.6 million votes and counting.
But there’s another divide exposed by the election, which researchers at the Brookings Institution recently discovered as they sifted the election returns. It has no bearing on the election outcome, but it tells us something important about the state of the country and its politics moving forward.

Donald Trump - Time Person of the Year

The divide is economic, and it is massive. According to the Brookings analysis, the less-than-500 counties that Clinton won nationwide combined to generate 64 percent of America’s economic activity in 2015. The more-than-2,600 counties that Trump won combined to generate 36 percent of the country’s economic activity last year.

Dear Mr Man Prince Tribute

Might not be in the back of the bus
But it sure feel just the same
Ain’t nothing fair about welfare,

“And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
Matthew 21:22
Don’t try to interpret faith
in terms of science and logic.
Religious imagery is
telling you what is becoming.

"Miracles happen" ~ Pope Francis

Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed, nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.”
~ Luke 17: 20-21
