Top ten stupid questions from 2008

Well DuhImage by unclebumpy via FlickrI travel to a lot of shows and events. Oddly, I do a lot of speaking (it's odd as I can barely string two sentences together) and this includes training events run by various marketing assocations, business groups, local commerce entities, etc.

I made a point of scribbling down some of the questions I've been asked. I think you'll enjoy them too.

10) "Can we run Wordpress on our BlogSpot account?" - IT Manager of a large retailer.

7) "If someone abandons the shopping cart how do you find it again?" - Marketing Manager at a SME.

5) "Would many affiliates be prepared to do cost-per-click on our company name?" - Content Manager at a high street retailer.
