Buzzword Kill? The Best Worst Marketing and Adtech Buzzwords of 2020
We’re a little late with our annual marketing buzzword list this year, but if you have a sense of humor about your job in marketing – or need one – here you go!
Marketing and technology are both infamous for creating new and impressive terminology. At least they think so. Put those two disciplines together and you can get some real lulus. Or just plain old puffed-up obfuscations and vague promises of the next best “new and improved” product or service. Or buzzword.
This year we gathered buzzkill words from four sources for your edification (and possible embarrassment) in an effort to support clarity — perhaps hilarity – and maybe even tone down your usage of these terms in the coming year.
Some no-brainers that made the grade for 2020 include pivot, agile, flexible, unprecedented, new normal, digital transformation, move the needle, omnichannel, authenticity, and cookieless future. Click on the links below to see the more obscure ones.
And if you’re really into this (or bored or in need of inspiration for your next campaign), here’s our list from last year.
What marketing or Adtech buzzwords do think will make the 2021 list as the nation moves out of the Covid-19 pandemic? “Post-Covid” anyone?
