If you do not subscribe to Marketing magazine, can you tell us why not?

Waste of time and money. None available with specific information
relevant to for my industry. Your selection above does not contain
anything close so I selected one of your stupid abbreviations which Im
buggered if I know what it stands for FMCG (perhaps: Football Managing
Committe Goofer)

Select your preferred prize should you be lucky enough to win from the items below:

Thinking about your answers in above, if you answered Other, please specify:

to a musical event? Not bloody likely considering your selection of
topics and your level of cultural relevance

Thinking about your answers in above, if you answered Other, please specify:

WHAT ARE ALL THESE SILLY ABBREVIATIONS? CSR makes sugar, thats very
relevant for the music industry… SOS, SME, SEM, SEO, B&B,

NO WAY

Editors note: if you are out there Mr No Way, here are a few tips to explain our silly survey:

Vox pop (noun) public opinions gathered in interviews: the impromptu opinions of ordinary members of the public as gathered by a radio or television interviewer

FMCG = fast moving consumer goods (ah… its only one of the most traditional of all marketing sectors)

SEO = search engine optimisation (its for that new fangled thing called the world wide web, you should check it out)

CSR = Corporate Social Responsibility (er… read the news buddy)
