I've had a rough week with regards to marketing-speke.

I have three theories.
  1. People use marketing buzzwords because they simply do not understand what they are talking about.
  2. People use marketing buzzwords because it makes them feel like they are part of the marketing tribe. Speak how your identifying group speaks: do not be different and stand out.
  3. People use marketing buzzwords because they honestly believe it will impress their audience.
There's #4 which is "they copy and pasted" but I'm going to discount that one since it's not showing intent, rather laziness.
