MOTIVATION FOR CREATING MARKETINGDEEPDIVE.ORG
I have always been curious to learn. Curiosity has taken me around traveling the world, made me live in different cultures, learn different soft-skills from languages to music instruments, live the university life for years and discover the beauty of science, arts and research.
Marketing started simply as fields of study and later became a passion. After years researching in the field of tourism marketing, I decided to change my research agenda and merge a pleasure and a purpose: Music and Marketing. In 2016 MusicStats.org was then created and through this platform many objectives were achieved: I shared my research with readers, involved students and scholars, and connected with an audience much larger than my classroom environment.
After two years and thousands of readers across the world, my curiosity for other equally captivating topics such as happiness and well being, sports, coffee and much more, forced me to extend what had become a limiting platform. MusicStats.org no longer could encompass all my curiosity and desire to share it with students and readers.
With MarketingDeepDive.org I aim to share my passion and curiosity for marketing, research and life in general.
Moreover, I wish to inspire readers to discuss interesting topics related to Marketing, Inspiring Brands, Music, Technology, the Future and much more.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I truly hope to create in the coming years an environment to help and inspire undergraduate and postgraduate students to be involved with and discover the wonders of science, research, marketing, technology and to develop different soft skills. And finally… to become even more curious about life and learning.
