Dear Madam / Sir,

By the skin of our teeth, welcome to the July newsletter from Magdalen Marketing Agency - perhaps better known as MMA.

Exactly no-one has asked us where July's newsletter is / was, but the truth of the matter is that we've been too busy, and like the best builders, the first house to fall into disrepair is our own. 

To remedy matters, we've hired three new people, two of whom you can find out more about below if you're super bored. We've also got a new sign outside our office (which you can see above) in the hope that someone important breaks down outside and we swap our alarmingly small car repair knowledge for ongoing marketing support. 

For the uninitiated, the subject of each newsletter is a famous film quote, and the winner each month gets a packet of pink wafers AND party rings. Last month's quote, which you can see below, was obviously from Donnie Darko. So obvious in fact, that no one got it. Which means that this month is a double rollover!!! Rather than two of each, we're gonna add two more packets into the mix. If you have any suggestions for your favourite classic biscuits that junior millennials are unaware of, do please share your thoughts. 

The millennials thing has been a hot topic of contention in the office this month. We've been writing one of 12 thought leadership articles for a client and according to one (American) report, a millennial is anyone up the age of 37 as of 2017. This therefore means that MMA Founder Thomas Bridge scrapes in, and has insisted on repeatedly referred to himself as a senior millennial since. Of course, every single other report disagrees with this age bracket, as it's something to do with remembering life pre-internet apparently. 

It's office song of the month time, and this month we've got one which joins together both ends of our office millennial spectrum:


We hope you had a great July, whatever type of millennial you are. 

Lots of love, 

All the team at MMA

So many things wrong with this advert, so little time.

How this ever got past the planning stage is beyond us, and for that we love it.

June Contender
Missed our last newsletter? Fear not, you still have time. 

Three was most definitely the magic number in June, where we talked about databases, apps and lots of alcohol. 

Be quiet, let her choose >>
June Contender
The awkward second album, we pulled it off with our usual mix of amazingness and humility.

May saw the second issue of Contender, where we discussed newsletters, elections and parties.

Practically Perfect In Every Way >>
April Contender
The one that started it all off, rarer than a Batman number 5.

April brought the first issue of Contender. In this issue we introduced the team, shared a copywriting case study and addressed the importance of content.
