Halloween is almost upon us. Things are about to get spooky. Not only thanks to the haunted houses that pop up in every town and the scary costumes donned by many as they trick or treat. No. Also, because our October series is here: “Monstrous Marketing Mistakes & Fears.”

We had our writers and a handful of guest bloggers share examples of the most terrifying marketing mistakes they’ve come across and how they overcome their fears in marketing. It’ll help make your marketing a treat. Let’s all avoid the tricks.
